quotes
One must not attempt to justify them, but rather to sense their nature simply and clearly.

- Einstein, Albert
Selecting the right person for the right job is the largest part of coaching.

- Philip Crosby
If we don't change our direction we're likely to end up where we're headed.

- Chinese Proverb
Once I thought ideas were exceptions not the rule. That is not so. Ideas are so plentiful that they ride by on air. You've only to reach out and snatch one...

- Mckeun, Rod
I'm tough, ambitious and I know exactly what I want.

- Madonna
We never do anything well till we cease to think about the manner of doing it.

- Hazlitt, William
The difficulty lies, not in the new ideas, but in escaping the old ones, which ramify, for those brought up as most of us have been, into every corner of our minds.

- John Maynard Keynes
Like dreams, statistics are a form of wish fulfillment.

- Baudrillard, Jean
You cannot have a proud and chivalrous spirit if your conduct is mean and paltry; for whatever a man's actions are, such must be his spirit.

- Demosthenes
I wouldn't wish the eighties on anyone, it was the time when all that was rotten bubbled to the surface. If you were not at the receiving end of this mayhem you could be unaware of it. It was possible to live through the decade preoccupied by the mortgage and the pence you saved on your income tax. It was also possible for those of us who saw what was happening to turn our eyes in a different direction; but what, in another decade, had been a trip to the clap clinic was now a trip to the mortuary.

- Jarman, Derek
A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards. More than that no man is entitled to, and less than that no man shall have.

- Roosevelt, Theodore
Scandal: gossip made tedious by morality.

- Wilde, Oscar
Behind the phony tinsel of Hollywood lies the real tinsel.

- Oscar Levant
I would not miss your face, your neck, your hands, your limbs, your bosom and certain other of your charms. Indeed, not to become boring by naming them all, I could do without you, Chloe, altogether.

- Martial, Marcus Valerius
The beautiful uncut hair of graves.

- Whitman, Walt
Forbear to lay the guilt of a few on the many.

- Ovid
Being convinced one knows the whole story is the surest way to fail.

- Philip Crosby
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.

- Wilde, Oscar
As if you could kill time without injuring eternity.

- Henry David Thoreau
Believe me that he who has been led by love to a human being to understand the mystery of that divine love which fills all heaven and earth, and concentrates itself into an articulate manifestation in the person of Christ, will soon begin to find that he cannot enter into the perfect bliss of that truth without going further, and seeing that the human heart requires some standing-ground for its affection, even for the love of wife and child, deeper and surer than that love, namely, in utter loyalty, resignation, adoring affection to Him in whom all loveliness is concentrated. It is a great mystery. It is a hard lesson.

- Letters and Memories. 1847.
