World quotes
World
The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility.

- Havel, Vaclav
Here is the world, sound as a nut, perfect, not the smallest piece of chaos left, never a stitch nor an end, not a mark of haste, or botching, or second thought; but the theory of the world is a thing of shreds and patches.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
WIDOW, n. A pathetic figure that the Christian world has agreed to take humorously, although Christ's tenderness towards widows was one of the most marked features of his character.

- Ambrose Bierce
What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and yet loses his soul?

- Jesus Christ
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
In Ethiopia during the famine, I saw stuff there that reorganized how I saw the world. I didn't quite know what to do about it. At a certain point, I felt God is not looking for alms. God is looking for action.

- Bono
When you want to fool the world, tell the truth.

- Bismarck, Otto Von
The modern American tourist now fills his experience with pseudo-events. He has come to expect both more strangeness and more familiarity than the world naturally offers. He has come to believe that he can have a lifetime of adventure in two weeks and all the thrills of risking his life without any real risk at all.

- Boorstin, Daniel J.
For all its flaws, I would feel safer to have my children grow up in a world dominated by the United States than by any other country.

- Kobsak Chutikul
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is on a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.

- Graham, Martha
The tragic mistake of so many in the environmentalist movement is the belief that the rest of the world can afford to hold itself to our expensive green standards.

- Jonathan Berry
Restraint and discipline and examples of virtue and justice. These are the things that form the education of the world.

- Burke, Edmund
It is such utterances as these which have given for now many hundred years their priceless value to the little Book of Psalms ascribed to the shepherd outlaw of the Judean hills, which have sent the sound of his name into all lands throughout all the world. Every form of human sorrow, doubt, struggle, error, sin--the nun agonising in the cloister; the settler struggling for his life in Transatlantic forests; the pauper shivering over the embers in his hovel and waiting for kind death; the man of business striving to keep his honour pure amid the temptations of commerce; the prodigal son starving in the far country and recollecting the words which he learnt long ago at his mother's knee; the peasant boy trudging afield in the chill dawn and remembering that the Lord is his Shepherd, therefore he will not want--all shapes of humanity have found, and will find to the end of time, a word said here to their inmost hearts. . . .

- Sermons on David. 1866.
The world is so full of a number of things I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings.

- Robert Louis Stevenson
America represents something universal in the human spirit. I received a letter not long ago from a man who said,'You can go to Japan to live, but you cannot become Japanese. You can go to France to live and not become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Turkey, and you won't become a German or a Turk.'But then he added,'Anybody from any corner of the world can come to America to live and become an American.'

- Ronald Reagan
What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.

- Albert Pine
Imagine the Creator as a low comedian, and at once the world becomes explicable.

- H. L. Mencken
Everything in your world is created by what you think.

- Oprah Winfrey
All the world over, I will back the masses against the classes.

- Gladstone, William E.
One has but to observe a community of beavers at work in a stream to understand the loss in his sagacity, balance, co-operation, competence, and purpose which Man has suffered since he rose up on his hind legs. He began to chatter and he developed Reason, Thought, and Imagination, qualities which would get the smartest group of rabbits or orioles in the world into inextricable trouble overnight.

- Thurber, James
