quotes
Watch against any fallacies in your ideas which may arise, not from disingenuousness, but from allowing yourself in moments of feeling to think vaguely, and not to attach precise meaning to your words. Without any cold caution of expression, it is a duty we owe to God's truth, and to our own happiness and the happiness of those around us, to think and speak as correctly as we can. Almost all heresy, schism, and misunderstandings, between either churches or individuals who ought to be one, have arisen from this fault of an involved and vague style of thought.

- MS. 1842.
It's not what your are, it's what you don't become that hurts.

- Levant, Oscar
In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful --in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason --and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set this Form of Good before his eyes.

- Plato
A light supper, a good night's sleep, and a fine morning have sometimes made a hero of the same man who, by an indigestion, a restless night, and a rainy morning would have proved a coward.

- Stanhope, Philip Dormer
I do believe it is possible to create, even without ever writing a word or painting a picture, by simply molding one's inner life. And that too is a deed.

- Etty Hillesum
Language is a process of free creation; its laws and principles are fixed, but the manner in which the principles of generation are used is free and infinitely varied. Even the interpretation and use of words involves a process of free creation.

- Chomsky, Noam
An army marches on its stomach.

- Napolean Bonaparte
Give a critic an inch, he'll write a play.

- Steinbeck, John
God is subtle, but He is not malicious. I cannot believe that God plays dice with the world.

- Einstein, Albert
Our civilization, bequeathed to us by fierce adventurers, eaters of meat and hunters, is so full of hurry and combat, so busy about many things which perhaps are of no importance, that it cannot but see something feeble in a civilization which smiles as it refuses to make the battlefield the test of excellence.

- Joyce, James
The measure of a man is what he does with power.

- Pittacus
Victory has a hundred fathers but defeat is an orphan.

- Ciano, Galeazzo
Let parents bequeath to their children not riches, but the spirit of reverence.

- Plato
If life must not be taken too seriously -- then so neither must death.

- Butler, Samuel
Have you known how to take rest? You have done more than he who hath taken empires and cities.

- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Life's not a paragraph And death i think is no parenthesis

- e e cummings
A committee is an animal with four back legs.

- Carre, John Le
All the known world, excepting only savage nations, is governed by books.

- Voltaire
After all, he thought he was God.

- FBI agent on why it was difficult to negotiate with David Koresh
Patience is counting down without blasting off
