quotes
Peace, commerce and honest friendship with all nations; entangling alliances with none.

- Jefferson, Thomas
I can't stand a naked light bulb, any more than I can a rude remark or a vulgar action.

- Williams, Tennessee
ALTAR, n. The place whereupon the priest formerly raveled out the small intestine of the sacrificial victim for purposes of divination and cooked its flesh for the gods. The word is now seldom used, except with reference to the sacrifice of their liberty and peace by a male and a female tool. They stood before the altar and supplied The fire themselves in which their fat was fried. In vain the sacrifice! -- no god will claim An offering burnt with an unholy flame. M.P. Nopput

- Ambrose Bierce
A compliment is a statement of an agreeable truth; flattery is a statement of an agreeable untruth.

- Sir John A. MacDonald
Looking back over a decade one sees the ideal of a university become a myth, a vision, a meadow lark among the smoke stacks. Yet perhaps it is there at Princeton, only more elusive than under the skies of the Prussian Rhineland or Oxfordshire; or perhaps some men come upon it suddenly and possess it, while others wander forever outside. Even these seek in vain through middle age for any corner of the republic that preserves so much of what is fair, gracious, charming and honorable in American life.

Beauty can't amuse you, but brainwork -- reading, writing, thinking--can.

- Brown, Helen Gurley
A laugh is worth a hundred groans in any market.

- Lamb, Charles
Theories are always very thin and insubstantial, experience only is tangible.

- Hosea Ballou
Believe nothing against another but on good authority; and never report what may hurt another, unless it be a greater hurt to some other to conceal it.

- William Penn
You never know how much a man can't remember until he is called as a witness.

- Rogers, Will
I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with a lot of pleasure.

- Clarence Darrow
Whatever a man seeks, honors, or exalts more than God, this is the god of his idolatry.

- Ullathorne, William B.
Once victim, always victim -- that's the law!

- Hardy, Thomas
Language has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone, and the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.

- Tillich, Paul
Few persons who have ever sat for a portrait can have felt anything but inferior while the process is going on.

- Powell, Anthony
Sloth makes all things difficult, but industry, all things easy. He that rises late must trot all day, and shall scarce overtake his business at night, while laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him.

- Benjamin Franklin
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.

- Buddha
PHOTOGRAPH, n. A picture painted by the sun without instruction in art. It is a little better than the work of an Apache, but not quite so good as that of a Cheyenne.

- Ambrose Bierce
Too often the strong silent man is silent because he does not know what to say, and is reputed strong only because he has remained silent.

- Winston Churchill
The money men make lives after them.

- Butler, Samuel
