quotes
Unaware of the absurdity of it, we introduce our own petty household rules into the economy of the universe for which the life of generations, peoples, of entire planets, has no importance in relation to the general development.

- Herzen, Alexander
Everything begins with an idea.

- Nightingale, Earl
I haven't the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.

- David Sedaris
The greatest ability in business is to get along with others and influence their actions. A chip on the shoulder is too heavy a piece of baggage to carry through life.

- Hannah, John A.
SUFFRAGE, n. Expression of opinion by means of a ballot. The right of suffrage (which is held to be both a privilege and a duty) means, as commonly interpreted, the right to vote for the man of another man's choice, and is highly prized. Refusal to do so has the bad name of "incivism." The incivilian, however, cannot be properly arraigned for his crime, for there is no legitimate accuser. If the accuser is himself guilty he has no standing in the court of opinion; if not, he profits by the crime, for A's abstention from voting gives greater weight to the vote of B. By female suffrage is meant the right of a woman to vote as some man tells her to. It is based on female responsibility, which is somewhat limited. The woman most eager to jump out of her petticoat to assert her rights is first to jump back into it when threatened with a switching for misusing them.

- Ambrose Bierce
Not by might, or power, but by my spirit, says the Lord.

- Bible
The difference between Socrates and Jesus? The great conscious and the immeasurably great unconscious.

- Carlyle, Thomas
It takes a great man to give sound advice tactfully, but a greater to accept it graciously.

- Macaulay, J. C.
A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal.

- Oscar Wilde
The city is recruited from the country.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The slightest sorrow for sin is sufficient if it produce amendment, and the greatest insufficient if it do not.

- C. C. Colton
I'm very determined and stubborn. There's a desire in me that makes me want to do more and more, and to do it right. Each one of us has a fire in our heart for something. It's our goal in life to find it and to keep it lit.

- Retton, Mary Lou
INDIGESTION, n. A disease which the patient and his friends frequently mistake for deep religious conviction and concern for the salvation of mankind. As the simple Red Man of the western wild put it, with, it must be confessed, a certain force: "Plenty well, no pray; big bellyache, heap God."

- Ambrose Bierce
Every man's life is a fairy-tale written by God's fingers.

- Hans Christian Andersen
There is a healthy ferment of mind in which one struggles through chaos and darkness, by means of a few clues and threads of light--and--of one great bright pathway, which I find more and more to be the only escape from infinite confusion and aberration, the only explanation of a thousand human mysteries--I mean the Incarnation of our Lord--the fact that there really is--a God-Man!

- MS. Letter. 1844.
So by all means let's have a television show quick and long, even if the commercial has to be delivered by a man in a white coat with a stethoscope hanging around his neck, selling ergot pills. After all the public is entitled to what it wants, isn't it? The Romans knew that and even they lasted four hundred years after they started to putrefy.

- Chandler, Raymond
Always behave like a duck - keep calm and unruffled on the surface but paddle like the devil underneath.

- Jacob Braude
The first time I see a jogger smiling, I'll consider it.

- Joan Rivers
The idea of the sacred is quite simply one of the most conservative notions in any culture, because it seeks to turn other ideas -- uncertainty, progress, change -- into crimes.

- Rushdie, Salman
The higher the buildings, the lower the morals.

- Noel Coward
