quotes
In the modern world, self-control buys a good life indeed. Having self-control to spare is rare enough nowadays that the marketplace lavishes huge rewards on society's scary new self-control elite, those lords of discipline who not only withstood all that boring stuff in graduate school, but keep themselves thin by carefully regulating what they eat after flogging themselves off to the gym at the crack of dawn. It's as if they got the news ahead of the rest of us-no doubt by waking up earlier-that self-control may well be the most important trait of the twenty-first century.

- Daniel Akst
The foundation of morality is to have done, once and for all, with lying

- Huxley, Thomas H.
Ignorance makes most men go into a political party, and shame keeps them from getting out of it.

- Halifax, Edward F.
From the beginning of our history the country has been afflicted with compromise. It is by compromise that human rights have been ;abandoned.

- Sumner, Charles
Doing a great job and not meeting the customer's objectives is as useless as doing a poor job within the customer's objectives.

- Faranda, Thomas
I don't give a damn for a man that can only spell a word one way.

- Mark Twain
I've seen a lot of patriots and they all died just like anybody else if it hurt bad enough and once they were dead their patriotism was only good for legends; it was bad for their prose and made them write bad poetry. If you are going to be a great patriot i.e. loyal to any existing order of government (not one who wishes to destroy the existing for something better) you want to be killed early if your life and works won't stink.

- Hemingway, Ernest
A tree growing out of the ground is as wonderful today as it ever was. It does not need to adopt new and startling methods.

- Henri, Robert
Nature cannot be tricked or cheated. She will give up to you the object of your struggles only after you have paid her price.

- Hill, Napoleon
It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do.

- Jerome K. Jerome
I don't like to write like God. It is only because you never do it, though, that the critics think you can't do it.

- Hemingway, Ernest
I have loved like a child collecting shells along the shore line, discarding one shell for another of seemingly more outward beauty with no knowledge of the pearls that were hidden within.

- Robert Anthony
Men freely believe that which they desire.

- Caesar, Julius
The more I give myself permission to live in the moment and enjoy it without feeling guilty or judgmental about any other time, the better I feel about the quality of my work.

- Wayne Dyer
Health is the condition of wisdom, and the sign is cheerfulness -- an open and noble temper.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

- George Bernard Shaw
My country, right or wrong is a thing that no patriot would think of saying except in a desperate case. It is like saying My mother, drunk or sober.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Philanthropic people lose all sense of humanity. It is their distinguishing characteristic.

- Wilde, Oscar
The seasons are what a symphony ought to be: four perfect movements in harmony with each other.

- Rubinstein, Arthur
Their is no defense against criticism except obscurity.

- Addison, Joseph
