quotes
Narrative is linear, but action has breadth and depth as well as height and is solid.

- Carlyle, Thomas
If one has no vanity in this life of ours, there is no sufficient reason for living.

- Leo Tolstoy
Some will always be above others. Destroy the inequality today, and it will appear again tomorrow.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life; this one experiences over and over in every conflict and every perplexity: that one is alone. That isn't as bad as it may first appear; and again it is the best thing in life that each should have everything in himself; his fate, his future, his whole expanse and world.

- Rainer Maria Rilke
It is a curious thing that every creed promises a paradise which will be absolutely uninhabitable for anyone of civilized taste.

- Waugh, Evelyn
I take a very practical view of raising children. I put a sign in each of their rooms: Checkout Time is 18 years.

- Bombeck, Erma
The cosmos is a gigantic flywheel making 10,000 revolutions per minute. Man is a sick fly taking a dizzy ride on it.

- H. L. Mencken
There is a terrific disadvantage in not having the abrasive quality of the press applied to you daily. Even though we never like it, and even though we wish they didn't write it, and even though we disapprove, there isn't any doubt that we could not do the job at all in a free society without a very, very active press.

- Kennedy, John F.
A misty morning does not signify a cloudy day.

- Proverb
I drink to make other people seem more interesting.

- George Jean Nathan
The house of fiction has in short not one window, but a million—a number of possible windows not to be reckoned, rather; every one of which has been pierced, or is still pierce-able, in its vast front, by the need of the individual vision and by the pressure of the individual will. These apertures, of dissimilar shape and size, hang so, all together, over the human scene that we might have expected of them a greater sameness of report than we find. They are but windows at best, mere holes in a dead wall, disconnected, perched aloft; they are not hinged doors opening straight upon life. But they have this mark of their own that at each of them stands a figure with a pair of eyes, or at least with a field glass, which forms again and again, for observation, a unique instrument, insuring to the person making use of it an impression distinct fromany other. He and his neighbors are watching the same show, but one seeing more where the other sees less, one seeing black where the other sees white, one seeing big where the other sees small, one seeing coarse where the other sees fine.

- Henry James
Prosperity is a great teacher; adversity is a greater. Possession pampers the mind; privation trains and strengthens it.

- Hazlitt, William
Every contrivance of man, every tool, every instrument, every utensil, every article designed for use, of each and every kind, evolved from a very simple beginning.

- Robert Collier
What I did not yet know so intensely was the hatred of the white American for the black, a hatred so deep that I wonder if every white man in this country, when he plants a tree, doesn't see Negroes hanging from its branches.

- Genet, Jean
A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

- Martin H. Fischer
Thinking well to be wise: planning well, wiser: doing well wisest and best of all.

- Forbes, Malcolm S.
A good lawyer is a bad neighbor.

- Proverb, French
The man with vision always goes ahead of the man with visions.

I believe that the great Creator has put ores and oil on this earth to give us a breathing spell. As we exhaust them, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which is GodÆs true storehouse and can never be exhausted. We can learn to synthesize material for every human need from things that grow.

- George Washington Carver
No matter how vast, how total, the failure of man here on earth, the work of man will be resumed elsewhere. War leaders talk of resuming operations on this front and that, but man's front embraces the whole universe.

- Miller, Henry
