quotes
1.

Man is an artifact designed for space travel. He is not designed to remain in his present biologic state any more than a tadpole is designed to remain a tadpole.

- Burroughs, William S.
2.

Stillness and steadiness of features are signal marks of good breeding. Vulgar persons can't sit still, or at least must always work their limbs and features.

- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
3.

The mind of the scholar, if he would leave it large and liberal, should come in contact with other minds.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
4.

The problem most people have with resisting temptation is that they never really want to discourage it altogether.

- Steve Martini
5.

A lie travels farther than the truth.

- Irish Proverb
6.

Look, we're all the same; a man is a fourteen-room house --in the bedroom he's asleep with his intelligent wife, in the living-room he's rolling around with some bareass girl, in the library he's paying his taxes, in the yard he's raising tomatoes, and in the cellar he's making a bomb to blow it all up.

- Miller, Arthur
7.

I admire people who are suited to the contemplative life. They can sit inside themselves like honey in a jar and just be. It's wonderful to have someone like that around, you always feel you can count on them. You can go away and come back, you can change your mind and your hairdo and your politics, and when you get through doing all these upsetting things, you look around and there they are, just the way they were, just being.

- Janeway, Elizabeth
8.

My most brilliant achievement was my ability to be able to persuade my wife to marry me.

- Churchill, Winston
9.

Rationalists are admirable beings, rationalism is a hideous monster when it claims for itself omnipotence. Attribution of omnipotence to reason is as bad a piece of idolatry as is worship of stock and stone believing it to be God. I plead not for the suppression of reason, but for a due recognition of that in us which sanctifies reason.

- Gandhi, Mahatma
10.

I never vote for anyone. I always vote against.

- Fields, W. C.
11.

I still live.

- Daniel Webster
12.

An honest election, under democracy, is an act of innocence which does not take place more than once in the history of a given nation.

- Jose Marie Gil Robles
13.

Never regret something that once made you smile.

- Amber Deckers
14.

There is no good in living in a society where you are merely the equal of everybody else. The true pleasure of life is to live with your inferiors.

- Thackeray, William M.
15.

If Miss means respectably unmarried, and Mrs. respectably married, then Ms. means nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

- Carter, Angela
16.

After the ship has sunk, everyone knows how she might have been saved.

- Proverb, Italian
17.

Promises and pie crusts are made to be broken.

- Swift, Jonathan
18.

Much of the modern resistance to chastity comes from men's belief that they own their bodies -- those vast and perilous estates, pulsating with the energy that made the worlds, in which they find themselves without their consent and from which they are ejected at the pleasure of Another!

- Lewis, C. S.
19.

No man has a good enough memory to make a successful liar.

- Abraham Lincoln
20.

I realized, I'm never gonna be a Brad Pitt, so get over it, be happy with yourself, and move on.

- Clay Aiken
