quotes
1.

Love is like a poisonous mushroom -- you don't know if it is the real thing until it is too late

2.

The individual is capable of both great compassion and great indifference. He has it within his means to nourish the former and outgrow the latter.

- Cousins, Norman
3.

Perhaps the history of the errors of mankind, all things considered, is more valuable and interesting than that of their discoveries. Truth is uniform and narrow; it constantly exists, and does not seem to require so much an active energy, as a passive aptitude of the soul in order to encounter it. But error is endlessly diversified; it has no reality, but is the pure and simple creation of the mind that invents it. In this field the soul has room enough to expand herself, to display all her boundless faculties, and all her beautiful and interesting extravagancies and absurdities.

- Benjamin Franklin
4.

Self-respect is nothing to hide behind. When you need it most it isn't there.

- Sarton, May
5.

It is bad luck to be superstitious.

- Andrew W. Mathis
6.

I'm a solipsist and, I have to say, I'm surprised there aren't more of us.

- from a letter to Bertrand Russell
7.

Popular applause veers with the wind.

- Bright, John
8.

How frail and ephemeral is the material substance of letters, which makes their very survival so hazardous. Print has a permanence of its own, though it may not be much worth preserving, but a letter! Conveyed by uncertain transportation, over which the sender has no control; committed to a single individual who may be careless or inappreciative; left to the mercy of future generations, of families maybe anxious to suppress the past, of the accidents of removals and house-cleanings, or of mere ignorance. How often it has been by the veriest chance that they have survived at all.

- Drew, Elizabeth
9.

A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.

- Matthews, Andrew
10.

Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without an accordion. You just leave a lot of useless, noisy baggage behind.

- Jed Babbin
11.

To punish me for my contempt for authority, fate made me an authority myself.

- Albert Einstein
12.

Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter. Sermons and soda water the day after.

- Byron, Lord
13.

Accidents, try to change them -- it's impossible. The accidental reveals man.

- Picasso, Pablo
14.

A revolution is not a dinner party, or writing an essay, or painting a picture, or doing embroidery; it cannot be so refined, so leisurely and gentle, so temperate, kind, courteous, restrained and magnanimous. A revolution is an insurrection, an act of violence by which one class overthrows another.

- Zedong, Mao
15.

Extraordinary how potent cheap music is.

- Coward, Noel
16.

The comic is the perception of the opposite; humor is the feeling of it.

- Eco, Umberto
17.

No author ever drew a character consistent to human nature, but he was forced to ascribe to it many inconsistencies.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
18.

Apothegms are portable wisdom, the quintessential extracts of thought and feelings.

- R. W. Alger
19.

Laughter is the most healthful exertion.

- Hufeland, Christoph Wilhelm
20.

I would rather be first in a little Iberian village than second in Rome.

- Caesar, Julius
