quotes
And say my glory was I had such friends.

- William Butler Yeats

- John Brown
People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something that one finds. It is something one creates.

- Proverb
All, or the greatest part of men that have aspired to riches or power, have attained thereunto either by force or fraud, and what they have by craft or cruelty gained, to cover the foulness of their fact, they call purchase, as a name more honest.

- Tagore, Rabindranath
The books one reads in childhood, and perhaps most of all the bad and good bad books, create in one's mind a sort of false map of the world, a series of fabulous countries into which one can retreat at odd moments throughout the rest of life, and which in some cases can survive a visit to the real countries which they are supposed to represent.

- Orwell, George
The public is a ferocious beast -- one must either chain it up or flee from it.

- Voltaire
I am always busy, which is perhaps the chief reason why I am always well.

- Stanton, Elizabeth Cady

The more elaborate our means of communication, the less we communicate.
