quotes
Face your deficiencies and acknowledge them; but do not let them master you. Let them teach you patience, sweetness, insight.

- Helen Keller
Great literature cannot grow from a neglected or impoverished soil. Only if we actually tend or care will it transpire that every hundred years or so we might get a Middlemarch.

- James, P. D.
Money is like a sixth sense without which you cannot make a complete use of the other five.

- W. Somerset Maugham
I hope I never get so old I get religious.

- Ingmar Bergman
Nationalism is our form of incest, is our idolatry, is our insanity. Patriotism is its cult. It should hardly be necessary to say, that by patriotism I mean that attitude which puts the own nation above humanity, above the principles of truth and justice; not the loving interest in one's own nation, which is the concern with the nation's spiritual as much as with its material welfare --never with its power over other nations. Just as love for one individual which excludes the love for others is not love, love for one's country which is not part of one's love for humanity is not love, but idolatrous worship.

- Fromm, Erich
The worst misfortune that can happen to an ordinary man is to have an extraordinary father.

- O'Malley, Austin
Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose.

- Proverb
You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.

- Colette
The scrupulous and the just, the noble, humane, and devoted natures; the unselfish and the intelligent may begin a movement -- but it passes away from them. They are not the leaders of a revolution. They are its victims.

- Conrad, Joseph
The Artist is he who detects and applies the law from observation of the works of Genius, whether of man or Nature. The Artisan is he who merely applies the rules which others have detected.

- Thoreau, Henry David
Art is the symbol of the two noblest human efforts: to construct and to refrain from destruction.

- Weil, Simone
OCCASIONAL, adj. Afflicting us with greater or less frequency. That, however, is not the sense in which the word is used in the phrase "occasional verses," which are verses written for an "occasion," such as an anniversary, a celebration or other event. True, they afflict us a little worse than other sorts of verse, but their name has no reference to irregular recurrence.

- Ambrose Bierce
The trouble with self-made men is that they tend to worship their creator.

The British have a remarkable talent for keeping calm, even when there is no crisis.

- Jones, Franklin P.
He is ill clothed that is bare of virtue.

- Benjamin Franklin
This book fills a much needed gap.

- Moses Hadas
The main object of a revolution is the liberation of man... not the interpretation and application of some transcendental ideology.

- Genet, Jean
An asylum for the sane would be empty in America.

- Shaw, George Bernard
The best way to become a successful writer is to read good writing, remember it, and then forget where you remember it from.

- Fowler, Gene
Could we have entered into the mind of Sir Isaac Newton, and have traced all the steps by which he produced his great works, we might see nothing very extraordinary in the process.

- Joseph Priestley
