World quotes
The cemeteries are filled with people who thought the world couldn't get along without them.

- Proverb, American
Everything in the world may be endured except continual prosperity.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It is quite impossible to guarantee world peace. But is should be possible to guarantee world freedom.

A talent somewhat above mediocrity, shrewd and not too sensitive, is more likely to rise in the world than genius.

- Cooley, Charles Horton
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

- Bachelard, Gaston
The world cannot be governed without juggling.

- Selden, John
The ideal of brotherhood of man, the building of the Just City, is one that cannot be discarded without lifelong feelings of disappointment and loss. But, if we are to live in the real world, discard it we must. Its very nobility makes the results of its breakdown doubly horrifying, and it breaks down, as it always will, not by some external agency but because it cannot work.

- Amis, Kingsley
Though collecting quotations could be considered as merely an ironic mimetism -- victimless collecting, as it were... in a world that is well on its way to becoming one vast quarry, the collector becomes someone engaged in a pious work of salvage. The course of modern history having already sapped the traditions and shattered the living wholes in which precious objects once found their place, the collector may now in good conscience go about excavating the choicer, more emblematic fragments.

- Sontag, Susan
We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of Peace.

- Gladstone, William E.
Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.

- Marx, Karl
It just seem like musicians want to sell a few records and put out a perfume line, and I think it's so sad that there are so many musicians who don't want to change the world... Music has been so much more.

- Moby
A painting in a museum probably hears more foolish remarks than anything else in the world.

- Goncourt, Edmond and Jules De
I am done with great things and big plans, great institutions and big success. I am for those tiny, invisible loving human forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, which, if given time, will rend the hardest monuments of pride.

- James, William
Playing safe is probably the most unsafe thing in the world. You cannot stand still. You must go forward.

- Collier, Robert
As far as many statistical series that are related to activities of mankind are concerned, the date that divides human history into two equal parts is well within living memory. The world of today is as different from the world I was born in as that world was from Julius Caesar s. I was born in the middle of human history, to date, roughly. Almost as much has happened since I was born as happened before.

- Boulding, Kenneth Ewart
Sensual pleasures are like soap bubbles, sparkling, effervescent. The pleasures of intellect are calm, beautiful, sublime, ever enduring and climbing upward to the borders of the unseen world.

- Aughey, John H.
To establish oneself in the world, one has to do all one can to appear established.

- Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Nothing is as difficult as to achieve results in this world if one is filled full of great tolerance and the milk of human kindness. The person who achieves must generally be a one-idea individual, concentrated entirely on that one idea, and ruthless in his aspect toward other men and other ideas.

- Robinson, Corinne Roosevelt
Ye are the light of the world. A city set upon a hill cannot be hid.

- Bible
Morbid melancholy results from subjectivity of mind. The self-contemplating mind, if it be a conscientious and feeling one, must be dissatisfied with what it sees within. Then it begins unconsciously to flatter itself with the idea that it is not the "moi" but the "non moi," the world around, which is evil. Hence comes Manichaeism, Asceticism, and that morbid tone of mind which is so accustomed to look for sorrow that it finds it even in joy--because it will not confess to itself that sorrow belongs to sin, and that sin belongs to self; and therefore it vents its dissatisfaction on God's earth, and not on itself in repentance and humiliation. The world looks dark. Shall we therefore be dark too? Is it not our business to bring it back to light and joy?

- MS. Letter. 1843.
