quotes
Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you --like music to the musician or Marxism to the Communist --or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.

May the gods grant you all things which your heart desires, and may they give you a husband and a home and gracious concord, for there is nothing greater and better than this -when a husband and wife keep a household in oneness of mind, a great woe to their enemies and joy to their friends, and win high renown.

- Homer
'Tis beauty that doth oft make women proud; but, God He knows, thy share thereof is small.

- William Shakespeare
I'm treating you as a friend asking you to share my present minuses in the hope that I can ask you to share my future pluses

- Mansfield, Katherine
Don't let the bastards grind you down.

- General Joseph W. Stilwell
No love is entirely without worth, even when the frivolous calls to the frivolous and the base to the base.

- Murdoch, Iris
Having had to encounter single-handed during his period of eclipse many physical dangers, he was well aware of the most dangerous element common to them all: of the crushing, paralysing sense of human littleness, which is what really defeats a human struggling with natural forces, alone, far from the eyes of his fellows.

- Joseph Conrad
I always prefer to believe the best of everybody -- it saves so much trouble.

- Kipling, Rudyard
If you should put even a little on a little and should do this often, soon this would become big.

- Hesiod
Modesty in an actor is as fake as passion in a call girl.

- Jackie Gleason
The great society is a place where men are more concerned with the quality of their goods than with the quantity of their goods.

- Johnson, Lyndon B.
Familiarity breeds contempt; and children.

- Twain, Mark
The one unchangeable certainty is that nothing is unchangeable or certain.

- Kennedy, John F.
The new man is born too old to tolerate the new world. The present conditions of life have not yet erased the traces of the past. We run too fast, but we still do not move enough. He looks but he does not contemplate, he sees but he does not think. He runs away from time, which is made of thought, and yet all he can feel is his own time, the present.

- Montale, Eugenio
...the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness, the independence of solitude.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
I believe in recovery, and I believe that as a role model I have the responsibility to let young people know that you can make a mistake and come back from it.

- Ann Richards
There are many definite methods, honest and dishonest, which make people rich; the only instinct I know of which does it is that instinct which theological Christianity crudely describes as the sin of avarice.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Clothes don't tell the character of the man, but they just as well talk for him as against him.

I would rather make one percent of a hundred men's efforts than one hundred percent of my own. This way if ten get sick and ten get run over by a truck, I still have eighty percent of my income.

- J. Paul Gettty
Carry on any enterprise as if all future success depended on it.

- Richelieu, Cardinal De
