quotes
I never can pass by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York without thinking of it not as a gallery of living portraits but as a cemetery of tax-deductible wealth.

- Lapham, Lewis H.
A strong and secure man digests his experiences (deeds and misdeeds alike) just as he digests his meat, even when he has some bits to swallow.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
What is genius but the power of expressing a new individuality?

- Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement.

- Adams, George M.
He was one of those men who think that the world can be saved by writing a pamphlet.

- Benjamin Disraeli
Better to master one mountain than a thousand foothills.

- Ward, William A.
Perfection is a road, not a destination. Every time I live, I get an education.

- Burk Hudson
There are various orders of beauty, causing men to make fools of themselves in various styles... but there is one order of beauty which seems made to turn the heads not only of men, but of all intelligent mammals, even of women. It is a beauty like that of kittens, or very small downy ducks making gentle rippling noises with their soft bills, or babies just beginning to toddle and to engage in conscious mischief --a beauty with which you can never be angry, but that you feel ready to crush for inability to comprehend the state of mind into which it throws you.

- Eliot, George
Self-determination has to mean that the leader is your individual gut, and heart, and mind or we're talking about power, again, and its rather well-known impurities. Who is really going to care whether you live or die and who is going to know the most intimate motivation for your laughter and your tears is the only person to be trusted to speak for you and to decide what you will or will not do.

- Jordan, June
Personally, I would be delighted if there were a life after death, especially if it permitted me to continue to learn about this world and others, if it gave me a chance to discover how history turns out.

- Carl Sagan
If you have been touched by the success fairy, people think you know why. People think success breeds enlightenment and you are duty-bound to spread around like manure. Fertilize those young minds!

- Meryl Streep
Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us worthy evidence of the fact.

- George Eliot
Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment of our intelligence by means of language.

- Ludwig Wittgenstein
There is only one optimist. He has been here since man has been on this earth, and that is "man" himself. If we hadn't had such a magnificent optimism to carry us through all these things, we wouldn't be here. We have survived it on our optimism.

- Edward Steichen
The difference between our decadence and the Russians is that while theirs is brutal, ours is apathetic.

- Thurber, James
It is much easier to be critical than to be correct.

- Disraeli, Benjamin
The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment.

- Nightingale, Earl
No state has an inherent right to survive through conscript troops and in the long run no state ever has. Roman matrons used to say to their sons: "Come back with your shield, or on it." Later on, this custom declined. So did Rome.

- Excerpt from the notebooks of Lazarus Long
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds upon the heel that crushes it.

- Mark Twain
By March 1918, Lenin's Bolshevik regime, then just five months old, had knowingly killed more of its political opponents than Czarist Russia had in the whole preceding century.

- Tony Judt
