quotes
Books seem to me to be pestilent things, and infect all that trade in them. . . with something very perverse and brutal. Printers, binders, sellers, and others that make a trade and gain out of them have universally so odd a turn and corruption of mind that they have a way of dealing peculiar to themselves, and not conformed to the good of society and that general fairness which cements mankind.

- John Locke
One thing about a pig, he thinks he's warm if his nose is warm. I saw a bunch of pigs one time that had frozen together in a rosette, each one's nose tucked under the rump of the one in front. We have a lot of pigs in politics.

- Mccarthy, Eugene J.
Man's mind is not a container to be filled but rather a fire to be kindled.

- Brande, Dorothea
If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.

- Paul McCartney
Two men please God -- who serves Him with all his heart because he knows Him; who seeks Him with all his heart because he knows Him not.

- Panin, Nikita Ivanovich
I don't like being called Elvis The Pelvis. That's gotta be one of the most childish expressions I've ever heard coming from an adult.

- Elvis Presley
I would rather go to heaven alone than go to hell in company.

- Torrey, R. A.
The things which are most important don't always scream the loudest.

- Hawke, Bob
Those who forgets their friends to follow those of a higher status are truly snobs.

- Thackeray, William M.
In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true.

- John Lilly
The wise man in the storm prays to God, not for safety from danger, but for deliverance from fear.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Interest is the spur of the people, but glory that of great souls. Invention is the talent of youth, and judgment of age.

- Swift, Jonathan
Most people are in favor of progress, it's the changes they don't like.

I hold that the parentheses are by far the most important parts of a non-business letter.

- Lawrence, D. H.
Nothing, it is true, is more common than for both Science and Art to pay homage to the spirit of the age, and for creative taste to accept the law of critical taste.

- Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
But in our enthusiasm, we could not resist a radical overhaul of the system, in which all of its major weaknesses have been exposed, analyzed, and replaced with new weaknesses.

- Bruce Leverett - "Register Allocation in Optimizing Compilers"
Love blinds us to faults, but hatred blinds us to virtues.

- Ezra, Iba
The American mood, perhaps even the American character, has changed. There are few manifestations any longer of the old American self-assurance which so irritated Dickens. Instead, there is a sense of frustration so perceptible that even our politicians have attempted to exploit it.

- Macleish, Archibald
I have often thought morality may perhaps consist solely in the courage of making a choice.

- Leon Blum
Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now in this instant of time. From this moment onwards you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed.

- Caddy, Eileen
