quotes
Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy.

- Mahatma Gandhi
Any established village; could afford a town drunkard, a town atheist, and a few Democrats.

- Brogan, Denis E.
We must never confuse elegance with snobbery.

- Saint-Laurent, Yves
Justifying faith implies, not only a divine evidence or conviction that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto Himself, but a sure trust and confidence that Christ died for my sins, that He loved me and gave Himself for me.

- Wesley, John
What we now call finance is, I hold, an intellectual perversion of what began as warm human love.

- Graves, Robert
People want you to be a crazy, out-of-control teen brat. They want you miserable, just like them. They don't want heroes; what they want is to see you fall.

- DiCaprio, Leonardo
A diplomat... is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.

- Caskie Stinnett
Age imprints more wrinkles in the mind than it does on the face.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
The Creator gave man two ears and one mouth;there is a reason why He did so.

- Thomas Barron
Generosity is a part of my character, and I therefore hasten to assure this Government that I will never make an allegation of dishonesty against it wherever a simple explanation of stupidity will suffice.

- Lever, Leslie Baron
HOG, n. A bird remarkable for the catholicity of its appetite and serving to illustrate that of ours. Among the Mahometans and Jews, the hog is not in favor as an article of diet, but is respected for the delicacy and the melody of its voice. It is chiefly as a songster that the fowl is esteemed; the cage of him in full chorus has been known to draw tears from two persons at once. The scientific name of this dicky-bird is _Porcus Rockefelleri_. Mr. Rockefeller did not discover the hog, but it is considered his by right of resemblance.

- Ambrose Bierce
Violence has settled more issues in history than any other factor; and contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms.

- Robert Heinlein
I believe that the union of those who have loved here will in the next world amount to perfect identity, that they will look back on the expressions of affection here as mere meagre strugglings after and approximation to the union which then will be perfect. Perfect!

- Letters and Memories. 1842.
Something that irritates you and won't let you go. That's the anguish of it. Do this book, or die. You have to go through that. Talent is insignificant. I know a lot of talented ruins. Beyond talent lie all the usual words: discipline, love, luck, but, most of all, endurance.

Wisdom is not attained by years, but by ability.

- Plautus, Titus Maccius
Should we grieve over a little misplaced charity, when an all knowing, all wise Being showers down every day his benefits on the unthankful and undeserving?

- Atterbury, Francis
The real thinking of woman is pre-eminently practical and applied. It is something we describe as sound common sense, and is usually directed to what is close at hand and personal. In general, it can be said that feminine mentality manifests an undeveloped, childlike, or primitive character; instead of the thirst for knowledge, curiosity; instead of judgment, prejudice; instead of thinking, imagination or dreaming; instead of will, wishing. Where a man takes up objective problems, a woman contents herself with solving riddles; where he battles for knowledge and understanding, she contents herself with faith or superstition, or else she makes assumptions.

- Jung, Emma
In Hollywood, an equitable divorce settlement means each party getting fifty percent of publicity.

- Lauren Bacall
Nordstrom's Rules for Employees: Rule # 1: Use your good judgment in all situations There are no additional rules

The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

- Wiesel, Elie
