quotes
The ancient Greek definition of happiness was the full use of your powers along lines of excellence.

- John F. Kennedy
Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or to lose.

- Lyndon B. Johnson
If you can't return a favor, pass it on.

Endurance is one of the most difficult disciplines, but it is to the one who endures that the final victory comes.

- Buddha
A high artistic finish is important for more reasons than for the mere pleasure it gives. There is something sacramental in perfect metre and rhythm. They are outward and visible signs (most seriously we speak as we say it) of an inward and spiritual grace, namely, of the self-possessed and victorious temper of one who has so far subdued nature as to be able to hear that universal sphere-music of hers, speaking of which Mr. Carlyle says, that "all deepest thoughts instinctively vent themselves in song."

- Miscellanies. 1849.
Why grab possessions like thieves, or divide them like socialists when you can ignore them like wise men?

- Barney, Natalie Clifford
Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.

- Sheen, Fulton John
The race of man, while sheep in credulity, are wolves for conformity.

- Doren, Carl Van
From the oyster to the eagle, from the swine to the tiger, all animals are to be found in men and each of them exists in some man, sometimes several at the time. Animals are nothing but the portrayal of our virtues and vices made manifest to our eyes, the visible reflections of our souls. God displays them to us to give us food for thought.

- Hugo, Victor
The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime, and the punishment of his guilt.

- Curran, John Philpot
Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil. Capital in some form or other will always be needed.

She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short.

- Brian Andreas
Men have an extraordinarily erroneous opinion of their position in nature; and the error is ineradicable.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
If things change then they will be different, but if they don't then things will stay the same.

- Gilcrest, Peter
The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

- H. L. Mencken
The salvation of this human world lies nowhere else than in the human heart, in the human power to reflect, in human meekness and human responsibility.

- Havel, Vaclav
I don't like nostalgia unless it's mine.

- Reed, Lou
As the language of the face is universal, so 'tis very comprehensive; no laconism can reach it: 'Tis the short hand of the mind, and crowds a great deal in a little room

- Collier, Jeremy
