quotes
Syzygy, inexorable, pancreatic, phantasmagoria --- anyone who can use those four words in one sentence will never have to do manual labor.

- Kinsella, W.P.
It should be noted that when he seizes a state the new ruler ought to determine all the injuries that he will need to inflict. He should inflict them once and for all, and not have to renew them every day.

- Machiavelli, Niccolo
Whatever you do, He [God] will make good of it. But not the good He had prepared for you if you had obeyed Him.

- C. S. Lewis
SYMBOL, n. Something that is supposed to typify or stand for something else. Many symbols are mere "survivals" -- things which having no longer any utility continue to exist because we have inherited the tendency to make them; as funereal urns carved on memorial monuments. They were once real urns holding the ashes of the dead. We cannot stop making them, but we can give them a name that conceals our helplessness.

- Ambrose Bierce
It is, I think, an indisputable fact that Americans are, as Americans, the most self- conscious people in the world, and the most addicted to the belief that the other nations are in a conspiracy to under-value them.

- Henry James
In history as in life it is success that counts. Start a political upheaval and let yourself be caught, and you will hang as a traitor. But place yourself at the head of a rebellion and gain your point, and all future generations will worship you as the Father of their Country.

- Hendrik W. Van Loon
The artist belongs to their work, not the work to the artist.

- Novalis
Adlai Stevenson has a genius for saying the right thing, at the right time, to the wrong people.

- Lewis, Joe E.
You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.

- Konrad, George
The babe at first feeds upon the mother's bosom, but it is always on her heart.

- Beecher, Henry Ward
All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Clergymen have much the same in their breeches as other men.

- Elizabeth Aston
We have not overthrown the divine right of kings to fall down for the divine right of experts.

- Macmillan, Harold
Nobody can be kinder than the narcissist while you react to life in his own terms.

- Bowen, Elizabeth
Modesty is the lowest of the virtues, and is a real confession of the deficiency it indicates. He who undervalues himself is justly undervalued by others.

- Hazlitt, William
Take your work seriously but never take yourself seriously; and do not take what happens either to yourself or your work seriously.

- Booth Tarkington
In Washington, the first thing people tell you is what their job is. In Los Angeles you learn their star sign. In Houston you're told how rich they are. And in New York they tell you what their rent is.

- Hoggart, Simon
There are always three speeches, for every one you actually gave. The one you practiced, the one you gave, and the one you wish you gave.

- Carnegie, Dale
Work and thou canst escape the reward; whether the work be fine or course, planting corn or writing epics, so only it be honest work, done to thine own approbation, it shall earn a reward to the senses as well as to the thought.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It's not that I don't enjoy it, but it's kind of like a trip to Disneyland. You get so excited about a ride on the Matterhorn, and then when it's over, you realize you wasted all that time in line for a minute and a half upside down and the chance to throw up.

- Murphy Brown
