Is not the tremendous strength in men of the impulse to creative work in every field precisely due to their feeling of playing a relatively small part in the creation of living beings, which constantly impels them to an overcompensation in achievement?

- Horney, Karen
This face is a dog's snout sniffing for garbage, snakes nest in that mouth, I hear the sibilant threat.

- Whitman, Walt
Pleasure only starts once the worm has got into the fruit, to become delightful happiness must be tainted with poison.

- Bataille, Georges
Americans are overreaching; overreaching is the most admirable and most American of the many American excesses.

- Will, George F.
To find the point where hypothesis and fact meet; the delicate equilibrium between dream and reality; the place where fantasy and earthly things are metamorphosed into a work of art; the hour when faith in the future becomes knowledge of the past; to lay down one's power for others in need; to shake off the old ordeal and get ready for the new; to question, knowing that never can the full answer be found; to accept uncertainties quietly, even our incomplete knowledge of God; this is what man's journey is about, I think.

- Smith, Lillian
Subdue your appetites, my dears, and you've conquered human nature.

- Charles Dickens
The hearts and minds of the sick, the poor, the sorrowing, the truly human, all demand a living God who has revealed Himself in living acts; a God who has taught mankind by facts, not left them to discover Him by theories and sentiments; a Judge, a Father, a Saviour, an Inspirer; in a word, their hearts demand the historic truth of the Bible--of the Old Testament no less than the New.

- Sermons on Pentateuch. 1863.
Old people love to give good advice to console themselves for no longer being able to set a bad example.

- La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Where secrecy or mystery begins, vice or roguery is not far off.

- Johnson, Samuel
Do not rashly count on some sudden radical change happening to you as soon as you die to make you fit for heaven. There is not one word in the Bible which gives us reason to suppose that we shall not be in the next world the same persons that we have made ourselves in this world. . . . What we sow here we shall reap there. And it is good for us to know and face this. Anything is good for us, however unpleasant it may be, which drives us from the only real misery, which is sin and selfishness, to the only true happiness, which is the everlasting life of Christ, a pure, loving, just, generous, useful life of goodness.

- Good News of God Sermons.
Many people consider the things government does for them to be social progress, but they consider the things government does for others as socialism.

- Warren, Earl
The most painful state of living is remembering the future.

- Soren Kierkegaard
Nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity.

- Brown Jr., H. Jackson
Few enterprises of great labor or hazard would be undertaken if we had not the power of magnifying the advantages we expect from them.

- Johnson, Samuel
He who knows the darkness shall learn to live in the light.

Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it.

- Niels Bohr
Always say to yourself this one thing, "Good I will become, whatever it cost me; and in God's goodness I trust to make me good, for I am sure He wishes to see me good more than I do myself." And you will find that, because you have confessed in that best and most honest of ways that God is good, and have so given Him real glory, and real honour, and real praise, He will save you from the sins which torment you, and you shall never come, either in this world or the world to come, to that worst misery, the being ashamed of yourself.

- Sermons for the Times. 1855.
Words falls upon the facts like soft snow, blurring the outline and covering up all the details.

- George Orwell
A mother is not a person to lean on but person to make leaning unnecessary.

- Dorothy Fisher
He who doesn't have the spirit of his time, has all its misery.

- Voltaire
