quotes
The most learned are often the most narrow minded.

- Hazlitt, William
Despotism may govern without faith, but liberty cannot. How is it possible that society should escape destruction if the moral tie is not strengthened in proportion as the political tie is relaxed? And what can be done with a people who are their own masters if they are not submissive to the Deity?

- Tocqueville, Alexis De
Meetings are an addictive, highly self-indulgent activity that corporations and other organizations habitually engage in only because they cannot actually masturbate.

- Alain van der Heide
If I only had an hour to chop down a tree, I would spend the first 45 minutes sharpening my axe.

- Abraham Lincoln
A wise man first thinks and then speaks and a fool speaks first and then thinks.

- Hazrat Ali Ibn-e-Abi Talib
The way to combat noxious ideas is with other ideas. The way to combat falsehoods is with truth.

- William O. Douglas
You are right in demanding that an artist approach his work consciously, but you are confusing two concepts: the solution of a problem and the correct formulation of a problem. Only the second is required of the artist.

- Anton Chekhov
Nothing is as irritating as the fellow who chats pleasantly while he's overcharging you.

- Kin Hubbard
The fortune of us that are the moon's men doth ebb and flow like the sea, being governed, as the sea is, by the moon.

- William Shakespeare
It is by loving and by being loved that one can come nearest to the soul of another.

- Mcdonald, George
Give up your relentless moralizing, the continual pinpricks which pierce the skin of your fellows. The distinction between good and evil is the sickness of the mind. Give up your morals, and the people will regain a love of their fellows.

- Lao Tse
The greatest destroyer of peace is abortion because if a mother can kill her own child, what is left for me to kill you and you to kill me? There is nothing between.

- Mother Teresa
It's said that if you can't say something good about a dead person, don't say it. Well, I consider him dead.

- Thurgood Marshall
The average educated man in America has about as much knowledge of what a political idea is as he has of the principles of counterpoint. Each is a thing used in politics or music which those fellows who practice politics or music manipulate somehow. Show him one and he will deny that it is politics at all. It must be corrupt or he will not recognize it. He has only seen dried figs. He has only thought dried thoughts. A live thought or a real idea is against the rules of his mind.

- Chapman, John Jay
Let the trumpet of the day of judgment sound when it will, I shall appear with this book in my hand before the Sovereign Judge, and cry with a loud voice, This is my work, there were my thoughts, and thus was I. I have freely told both the good and the bad, have hid nothing wicked, added nothing good.

- Rousseau, Jean Jacques
The safest way to double your money is to fold it over and put it in your pocket.

- Kin Hubbard
Small crimes always precedes great ones.

- Racine, Jean
Courtesy should be a continuous action, not something to be turned on and off like a faucet.

BRAHMA, n. He who created the Hindoos, who are preserved by Vishnu and destroyed by Siva -- a rather neater division of labor than is found among the deities of some other nations. The Abracadabranese, for example, are created by Sin, maintained by Theft and destroyed by Folly. The priests of Brahma, like those of Abracadabranese, are holy and learned men who are never naughty. O Brahma, thou rare old Divinity, First Person of the Hindoo Trinity, You sit there so calm and securely, With feet folded up so demurely -- You're the First Person Singular, surely. Polydore Smith

- Ambrose Bierce
Women are cursed, and men are the proof.

- Rosanne Barr
