quotes
If you purify your soul of attachment to and desire for things, you will understand them spiritually. If you deny your appetite for them, you will enjoy their truth, understanding what is certain in them.

- John of the Cross, St.
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree, I would spend the first 45 minutes sharpening my axe.

- Abraham Lincoln
I paint paintings because I can't get the experience in any other way but there are many more experiences that are equally satisfying to me and equally inept at answering all my questions, but hover in exactitude in describing themselves and defying me to define their logic.

- Julian Schnabel
The true character of liberty is independence, maintained by force.

- Voltaire
If youth only knew: if age only could.

- Henri Estienne
Happiness lies in being privileged to work hard for long hours in doing whatever you think is worth doing. One man may find happiness in supporting a wife and children. Another may find it in robbing banks. Still another may labor mightily for years in pursuing pure research with no discernible result. Note the individual and subjective nature of each case. No two are alike and there is no reason to expect them to be. Each man or woman must find for himself or herself that occupation in which hard work and long hours make him or her happy. Contrariwise, if you are looking for shorter hours and longer vacations and early retirement, you are in the wrong job. Perhaps you need to take up bank robbing. Or geeking in a sideshow. Or even politics.

- Heinlein, Robert
The mechanism that directs government cannot be virtuous, because it is impossible to thwart every crime, to protect oneself from every criminal without being criminal too; that which directs corrupt mankind must be corrupt itself; and it will never be by means of virtue, virtue being inert and passive, that you will maintain control over vice, which is ever active: the governor must be more energetic than the governed.

- Sade, Marquis De
Each writer is born with a repertory company in his head. Shakespeare has perhaps 20 players, and Tennessee Williams has about 5, and Samuel Beckett one -- and maybe a clone of that one. I have 10 or so, and that's a lot. As you get older, you become more skillful at casting them.

- Vidal, Gore
It is not so much our friend's help that helps us as the confidence of their help.

- Epicurus
The poet only asks to get his head into the heavens. It is the logician who seeks to get the heavens into his head. And it is his head that splits.

- G. K. Chesterton
Life is an exciting business, and most exciting when it is lived for others

- Keller, Helen
I don't fell good.

- Burbank, Luther
Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill.

- Swindoll, Charles
A man must eat a peck of salt with his friend, before he knows him.

- Cervantes, Miguel De
When an actor comes to me and wants to discuss his character, I say,'It's in the script.'If he says,'But what's my motivation?,'I say,'Your salary.'

- Alfred Hitchcock
I've always regarded nature as the clothing of God.

- Havhamess, Alan
No one can go on being a rebel too long without turning into an autocrat.

- Durrell, Lawrence
It struck me that the movies had spent more than half a century saying, They lived happily ever after and the following quarter-century warning that they'll be lucky to make it through the weekend. Possibly now we are now entering a third era in which the movies will be sounding a note of cautious optimism: You know it just might work.

- Ephron, Nora
If faith produce no works, I see That faith is not a living tree. Thus faith and works together grow, No separate life they never can know. They're soul and body, hand and heart, What God hath joined, let no man part.

- More, Hannah
The best inheritance a parent can give to his children is a few minutes of their time each day.

- M. Grundler
