2.

Cultivated leisure is the aim of man.

- Wilde, Oscar
3.

This is my answer to the gap between ideas and action - I will write it out.

- Hortense Calisher
4.

He who is unable to live in society, or who has no need because he is sufficient for himself, must be either a beast or a god.

- Aristotle
5.

Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn't people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight remains to them?

- Rose Kennedy
6.

I keep reading between the lies.

- Ace, Goodman
7.

Gold has worked down from Alexander's time... When something holds good for two thousand years I do not believe it can be so because of prejudice or mistaken theory.

- Baruch, Bernard M.
8.

Movies are one of the bad habits that corrupted our century. Of their many sins, I offer as the worst their effect on the intellectual side of the nation. It is chiefly from that viewpoint I write of them -- as an eruption of trash that has lamed the American mind and retarded Americans from becoming a cultured people.

- Hecht, Ben
9.

We are volcanoes. When we women offer our experience as our truth, as human truth, all the maps change. There are new mountains.

- Guin, Ursula K. Le
10.

It takes guts to get out of the ruts.

- Schuller, Robert H.
11.

Obscenity, which is ever blasphemy against the divine beauty in life... is a monster for which the corruption of society forever brings forth new food, which it devours in secret.

- Shelley, Percy Bysshe
12.

If men were angels, no government would be necessary.

- James Madison
13.

For mankind, speech with a capital S is especially meaningful and committing, more than the content communicated. The outcry of the newborn and the sound of the bells are fraught with mystery more than the baby's woeful face or the venerable tower.

- Goodman, Paul
14.

Check your ego at the door and check your gut instead. Every right decision I have ever made has come from my gut. Every wrong decision I've made was the result of me not listening to the greater voice of myself

- Oprah Winfrey
15.

We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.

- Thoreau, Henry David
16.

Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

- William Butler Yeates
17.

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.

- Boese, Paul
18.

When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking or thinking I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years after you and I shall write and speak no more.

- Adams, John
19.

Master and Doctor are my titles; for ten years now, without repose, I held my erudite recitals and led my pupils by the nose.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
20.

Life becomes real only when we begin to face and solve our own problems. Until then we only swim in circles in a large fantasy world which tends to make us very tired of living. Don't waste energy! Face life now!
