quotes
All my life, as down an abyss without a bottom. I have been pouring van loads of information into that vacancy of oblivion I call my mind.

- Smith, Logan Pearsall
Your persistence is your measure of faith in yourself.

We are all here for a spell; get all the good laughs you can.

- Will Rogers
'Tis the last rose of summer, left blooming alone; all her lovely companions are faded and gone.

- Moore, Thomas
Today the world is the victim of propaganda because people are not intellectually competent. More than anything the United States needs effective citizens competent to do their own thinking.

- Lewis, William Mather
It must be borne in mind that the tragedy of life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach. It isn't a calamity to die with dreams unfulfilled, but it is a calamity not to dream. It is not a disaster to be unable to capture your ideal, but it is a disaster to have no ideal to capture. It is not a disgrace not to reach the stars, but it is a disgrace to have no stars to reach for. Not failure, but low aim is a sin

- Mayes, Benjamin E.
A cheerful mind is a vigorous mind.

- Jean De la Fontaine
We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.

- Martin Luther King Jr.
Capitalism inevitably and by virtue of the very logic of its civilization creates, educates and subsidizes a vested interest in social unrest.

- Schumpeter, Joseph A.
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
Politics will eventually be replaced by imagery. The politician will be only too happy to abdicate in favor of his image, because the image will be much more powerful than he could ever be.

- Mcluhan, Marshall
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

- Keller, Helen
What then is the American, this new man? He is either an European, or the descendant of an European, hence that strange misture of blood, which you will find in no other country. I could point out to you a family whose grandfather was an englishman, whose wife was Dutch, whose son married a french woman, and whose present four sons have now four wives of different nations. He is an American.

- Michel-Guillaume Jean de Crevecoeur
God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages.

- Jacques Deval
I don't know what effect these men will have upon the enemy, but, by God, they terrify me.

- Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington
Words divide us, actions unite us.

- Slogan of the Tupamaros
In order to influence a child, one must be careful not to be that child's parent or grandparent.

- Marquis, Don
The difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

- Gerald Burrill
Society expects man to be a passive social animal who believes like the People of the Field in "Jurgen" that "to do what you always have done" and "what is expected of you" are the twin rules of life. This, of course, is not true. The wanton crucifixion of impulses, the unnecessary blocking and frustration of the drives and urges, are an evil that reflects itself in sophistication, ennui and boredom, dissatisfaction, melancholy, fatigue, anxiety and neurosis.

- Abraham Myerson
DIGESTION, n. The conversion of victuals into virtues. When the process is imperfect, vices are evolved instead -- a circumstance from which that wicked writer, Dr. Jeremiah Blenn, infers that the ladies are the greater sufferers from dyspepsia.

- Ambrose Bierce
