quotes
Marriage is the miracle that transforms a kiss from a pleasure into a duty.

- Rowland, Helen
What is called an acute knowledge of human nature is mostly nothing but the observer's own weaknesses reflected back from others.

- Lichtenberg, Georg C.
Time is money, especially when you are talking to a lawyer or buying a commercial.

- Dane, Frank
We didn't lose the game; we just ran out of time.

- Vince Lombardi
HIBERNATE, v.i. To pass the winter season in domestic seclusion. There have been many singular popular notions about the hibernation of various animals. Many believe that the bear hibernates during the whole winter and subsists by mechanically sucking its paws. It is admitted that it comes out of its retirement in the spring so lean that it had to try twice before it can cast a shadow. Three or four centuries ago, in England, no fact was better attested than that swallows passed the winter months in the mud at the bottom of their brooks, clinging together in globular masses. They have apparently been compelled to give up the custom and account of the foulness of the brooks. Sotus Ecobius discovered in Central Asia a whole nation of people who hibernate. By some investigators, the fasting of Lent is supposed to have been originally a modified form of hibernation, to which the Church gave a religious significance; but this view was strenuously opposed by that eminent authority, Bishop Kip, who did not wish any honors denied to the memory of the Founder of his family.

- Ambrose Bierce
The techniques of opening conversation are universal. I knew long ago and rediscovered that the best way to attract attention, help, and conversation is to be lost. A man who seeing his mother starving to death on a path kicks her in the stomach to clear the way, will cheerfully devote several hours of his time giving wrong directions to a total stranger who claims to be lost.

- Steinbeck, John
I have a theory that the truth is never told during the nine-to-five hours.

- Hunter S. Thompson
A man may fish with the worm that hath eat of a king, and eat of the fish that hath fed of that worm.

- William Shakespeare
Summer afternoon -- summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.

- James, Henry
Flowers have spoken to me more than I can tell in written words. They are the hieroglyphics of angels, loved by all men for the beauty of the character, though few can decipher even fragments of their meaning.

- Child, Lydia M.
Fighting terrorism is like being a goalkeeper. You can make a hundred brilliant saves but the only shot that people remember is the one that gets past you.

- Wilkinson, Paul
Security is when everything is settled. When nothing can happen to you. Security is the denial of life.

- Greer, Germaine
I usually make up my mind about a man in ten seconds, and I very rarely change it.

- Thatcher, Margaret
Every convenience brings its own inconveniences along with it.

- Proverb
All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you will find that we are all, as I've said before, bugs in amber.

- Kurt Vonnegut
Failure is a detour, not a dead-end street.

- Ziglar, Zig
All good writing is swimming under water and holding your breath.

Love conquers all; let us surrender to Love.

- Virgil
Beauty is unbearable, drives us to despair, offering us for a minute the glimpse of an eternity that we should like to stretch out over the whole of time.

- Camus, Albert
A poet more than thirty years old is simply an overgrown child.

- H. L. Mencken
