quotes
So stick up ivy and the bays, and then restore the heathen ways, green will remind you of the Spring, though this great day denies the thing, and mortifies the earth, and all, but your wild revels, and loose hall.

- Vaughan, Henry
The man that hath no music in himself, Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils; The motions of his spirit are dull as night, And his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted.

- William Shakespeare
There has never yet been a man in our history who led a life of ease whose name is worth remembering.

- Roosevelt, Theodore
A sumptuous dwelling the rich man hath. And dainty is his repast; but remember that luxury's prodigal hand keeps the furnace of toil in blast.

- Hewitt, Mary Elizabeth
Philosophy consists very largely of one philosopher arguing that all others are jackasses. He usually proves it, and I should add that he also usually proves that he is one himself.

- H. L. Mencken
It is long since I have learned to hold popular opinion of no value.

- Alexander Hamilton
Emotion is the surest arbiter of a poetic choice, and it is the priest of all supreme unions in the mind.

- Eastman, Max
One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history.

- Pilgrim, Peace
Nothing can be more contemptible than to suppose Public Records to be true.

- Blake, William
Not necessity, not desire --no, the love of power is the demon of men. Let them have everything --health, food, a place to live, entertainment --they are and remain unhappy and low-spirited: for the demon waits and waits and will be satisfied.

- Nietzsche, Friedrich
If you done it, it ain't bragging.

- Whitman, Walt
In every age of well-marked transition, there is the pattern of habitual dumb practice and emotion which is passing and there is oncoming a new complex of habit.

- Whitehead, Alfred North
The blessing of an active mind, when it is in a good condition, is, that it not only employ itself, but is almost sure to be the means of giving wholesome employment to others.

You'll NEED someone to love while you're looking for someone TO love.

- Selagh Delaney
Things somehow seem more real and vivid when one can apply somebody else's ready-made phrase about them.

- Aldous Huxley
Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence.

- Sholem Asch
The secret of my influence has always been that it remained secret.

- Dali, Salvador
There is a kind of laughter that sickens the soul. Laughter when it is out of control: when it screams and stamps its feet, and sets the bells jangling in the next town. Laughter in all its ignorance and cruelty. Laughter with the seed of Satan in it. It tramples upon shrines; the belly-roarer. It roars, it yells, it is delirious: and yet it is as cold as ice. It has no humor. It is naked noise and naked malice.

- Peake, Mervyn
I love reason, but I am no fanatic in my love. Reason is our guide and beacon-light; but when you have made a divinity of it, it will blind you and instigate you to crime.

- Anatole France
The only cure for seasickness is to sit on the shady side of a church in the country.
