quotes
Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things.

- Diderot, Denis
True greatness comes not when things go always good for you; but true greatness comes when you are really tested, when you have taken some knocks, faced some disappointments, when sadness comes. Because only if you have been in the deepest valley, can you ever know how magnificent it is to be atop the highest mountain.

- Richard Nixon
Don't let us make imaginary evils, when you know we have so many real ones to encounter.

- Oliver Goldsmith
We are all full of weakness and errors; let us mutually pardon each other our follies it is the first law of nature.

- Voltaire
I believe with Dante, "se tu segui la tua Stella," that He who ordained my star will not lead me into temptation but through it. Without Him all places and methods of life are equally dangerous, with Him all equally safe.

- Letters and Memories. 1848.
The happiness in this life does not consist of being devoid of passion, but mastering them.

Many people consider the things which government does for them to be social progress, but they consider the things government does for others as socialism.

- Chief Justice Earl Warren
Teach us that wealth is not elegance, that profusion is not magnificence, that splendor is not beauty.

- Disraeli, Benjamin
To have another language is to possess a second soul.

- Charlemagne
Fortune gives too much to many, enough to none.

- Martial, Marcus Valerius
The camera relieves us of the burden of memory. It surveys us like God, and it surveys for us. Yet no other god has been so cynical, for the camera records in order to forget.

- Berger, John
Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. [Ecclesiastes 7:9]

- Bible
"Don't tug on that...you never know what it might be attatched to.

- Buckaroo Banzai (the film)
We Americans have always considered Hollywood, at best, a sinkhole of depraved venality. And, of course, it is. It is not a Protective Monastery of Aesthetic Truth. It is a place where everything is incredibly expensive.

- Mamet, David
The actor becomes an emotional athlete. The process is painful -- my personal life suffers.

- Pacino, Al
Nature magically suits a man to his fortunes, by making them the fruit of his character.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
One hour of thoughtful solitude may nerve the heart for days of conflict -- girding up its armor to meet the most insidious foe.

- Percival, Lord
TOPE, v. To tipple, booze, swill, soak, guzzle, lush, bib, or swig. In the individual, toping is regarded with disesteem, but toping nations are in the forefront of civilization and power. When pitted against the hard-drinking Christians the absemious Mahometans go down like grass before the scythe. In India one hundred thousand beef- eating and brandy-and-soda guzzling Britons hold in subjection two hundred and fifty million vegetarian abstainers of the same Aryan race. With what an easy grace the whisky-loving American pushed the temperate Spaniard out of his possessions! From the time when the Berserkers ravaged all the coasts of western Europe and lay drunk in every conquered port it has been the same way: everywhere the nations that drink too much are observed to fight rather well and not too righteously. Wherefore the estimable old ladies who abolished the canteen from the American army may justly boast of having materially augmented the nation's military power.

- Ambrose Bierce
Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of carelessness, incapacity, or neglect.

The very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. Instead of altering their views to fit the facts, they alter the facts to fit their views...which can be very uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that needs altering.

- Doctor Who
