quotes
In polite society one laughs at all the jokes, including the ones one has heard before.

- Dane, Frank
Goals should be SMART: S = Specific M = Measurable A = Assignable (who does what) R = Realistic T = Time-Related

They mustn't know my despair, I can't let them see the wounds which they have caused, I couldn't bear their sympathy and their kind-hearted jokes, it would only make me want to scream all the more. If I talk, everyone thinks I'm showing off; when I'm silent they think I'm ridiculous; rude if I answer, sly if I get a good idea, lazy if I'm tired, selfish if I eat a mouthful more than I should, stupid, cowardly, crafty, etc. etc.

- Frank, Anne
Be civil to all; sociable to many; familiar with few; friend to one; enemy to none.

- Benjamin Franklin
I require three things in a man. He must be handsome, ruthless, and stupid.

- Parker, Dorothy
One should as a rule respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny, and is likely to interfere with happiness in all kinds of ways.

- Bertrand Russell
The Day of the Lord will be revealed in flaming fire, not merely to give new light and a day-spring from on high to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, but to burn up out of sight, and off the universe, the chaff, hay, and stubble which men have built on the One Living Foundation, Christ, in that unquenchable fire, of which it is written that Death and Hell shall one day be cast into it also, to share the fate of all other unnatural and abominable things, and God's universe be--what it must be some day--very good.

- Letters and Sermons. 1856.
ZOOLOGY, n. The science and history of the animal kingdom, including its king, the House Fly (_Musca maledicta_). The father of Zoology was Aristotle, as is universally conceded, but the name of its mother has not come down to us. Two of the science's most illustrious expounders were Buffon and Oliver Goldsmith, from both of whom we learn (_L'Histoire generale des animaux_ and _A History of Animated Nature_) that the domestic cow sheds its horn every two years.

- Ambrose Bierce
Power is the faculty or capacity to act, the strength and potency to accomplish something. It is the vital energy to make choices and decisions. It also includes the capacity to overcome deeply embedded habits and to cultivate higher, more effective ones.

- Covey, Stephen R.
The most effective way to achieve right relations with any living thing is to look for the best in it, and then help that best into the fullest expression.

- Boone, Allen J.
We're going to have the best-educated American people in the world.

- Dan Quayle
Many admire, few know.

- Hippocrates
A scholar is the favorite of Heaven and of earth; The excellence of one's country, The happiest of mankind.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Throughout my life, I have seen narrow-shouldered men, without a single exception, committing innumerable stupid acts, brutalizing their fellows and perverting souls by all means. They call the motive for their actions fame.

- Lautreamont, Isidore Ducasse, Comte De
The soul is made for action, and cannot rest till it be employed. Idleness is its rust. Unless it will up and think and taste and see, all is in vain.

- Traherne, Thomas
We laugh a lot. That's for sure. Sure beats the alternative, doesn't it?

- Betty White
Pretending is not just play. Pretending is imagined possibility. Pretending, or acting, is a very valuable life skill and we do it all the time.

- Meryl Streep
The time your game is most vulnerable is when you're ahead, never let up.

- Laver, Rod
When a woman is very, very bad, she is awful, but when a man is correspondingly good, he is weird.

- Antrim, Minna
It's motive alone which gives character to the actions of men.

- Bruyere, Jean De La
