quotes
Nonsense and noise will oft prevail, when honour and affection fail.

- William Lloyd
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, Or close the wall up with our English dead! In peace there's nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility; But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger: Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.

- William Shakespeare
As it must not, so genius cannot be lawless; for it is even that constitutes its genius-- the power of acting creatively under laws of its own origination.

- Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Somehow the people who do as they please seem to get along just about as well as those who are always trying to please others.

- Edwards, Robert C.
Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.

- Heave
Believe me that he who has been led by love to a human being to understand the mystery of that divine love which fills all heaven and earth, and concentrates itself into an articulate manifestation in the person of Christ, will soon begin to find that he cannot enter into the perfect bliss of that truth without going further, and seeing that the human heart requires some standing-ground for its affection, even for the love of wife and child, deeper and surer than that love, namely, in utter loyalty, resignation, adoring affection to Him in whom all loveliness is concentrated. It is a great mystery. It is a hard lesson.

- Letters and Memories. 1847.
Archaeology is the peeping Tom of the sciences. It is the sandbox of men who care not where they are going; they merely want to know where everyone else has been.

- Jim Bishop
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.

- Walton, Izaak
Roman, remember that you shall rule the nations by your authority, for this is to be your skill, to make peace the custom, to spare the conquered, and to wage war until the haughty are brought low.

- Virgil
Nothing is quite so wretchedly corrupt as an aristocracy which has lost its power but kept its wealth and which still has endless leisure to devote to nothing but banal enjoyments. All its great thoughts and passionate energy are things of the past, and nothing but a host of petty, gnawing vices now cling to it like worms to a corpse.

- Tocqueville, Alexis De
Blessed is the servant who loves his brother as much when he is sick and useless as when he is well and an be of service to him. And blessed is he who loves his brother as well when he is afar off as when he is by his side, and who would say nothing behind his back he might not, in love, say before his face.

- Francis of Assisi, St.
Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.

- Voltaire
But'tis strange and oftentimes, to win us to our harm, the instruments of darkness tell us truths, win us with honest trifles, to betray's in deepest consequence.

- William Shakespeare
Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

- Alinsky, Saul
The world wants to be cheated. So cheat.

- Xaviera Hollander
There is only one difference between a madman and me. I am not mad.

- Salvador Dali
A house is a machine for living in.

- Corbusier, Le
Preaching is heady wine. It is pleasant to tell people where they get off.

- Lunn, Sir Arnold
All men can see these tactics whereby I conquer, but what none can see is the strategy out of which victory is evolved.

- Sun Tzu
Without poets, without artists, men would soon weary of nature's monotony. The sublime idea men have of the universe would collapse with dizzying speed. The order which we find in nature, and which is only an effect of art, would at once vanish. Everything would break up in chaos. There would be no seasons, no civilization, no thought, no humanity; even life would give way, and the impotent void would reign everywhere.

- Apollinaire, Guillaume
