Born Quotes

Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever fresh and radiant possibility

Kate Douglas Wiggin

A hero is born among a hundred, a wise man is found among a thousand, but an accomplished one might not be found even among a hundred thousand men.

Plato

Every particle of every thing rocks, water, flour, human has been in the same place flaming in the heart of our ancient sun before the earth came flying out of it. The irises in your eyes the tissue of roses the slow giant rocks in mountainheads were all born flaming locked in the sun as it drifted like a light on dark water.

Lawrence Collins

States that rise quickly, just as all the other things of nature that are born and grow rapidly, cannot have roots and ramifications; the first†bad weather†kills them

Niccolo Machiavelli

O Winter! ruler of the inverted year, . . . I crown thee king of intimate delights, Fireside enjoyments, home-born happiness, And all the comforts that the lowly roof Of undisturb'd Retirement, and the hours Of long uninterrupted evening, know.

William Cowper

The struggle for the aim of the liberation of women is the child of fire born on the lap of our liberation movement.

Vellupillai Pirapakaran

You were born together, and together you shall be forevermore. You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days. Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness, And let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other's cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each of you be alone, Even as the strings of the lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other's keeping. For only the hands of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together, yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other's shadow.

Kahlil Gibran

We are all born for love. It is the principle of existence and its only end

Benjamin Disraeli

You were born an original. Don't die a copy.

Joseph Franklin Rutherford

Dale E. Turner

Fear, born of that stern matron, Responsibility.

William McFee

The leadership instinct you are born with is the backbone. You develop the funny bone and the wishbone that go with it.

Elaine Agather

Leaders aren't born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.

Vince Lombardi

We are all born charming, fresh, and spontaneous and must be civilized before we are fit to participate in society.

Judith Martin

All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.

Albert Camus

In the state of nature...all men are born equal, but they cannot continue in this equality. Society makes them lose it, and they recover it only by the protection of the law.

Charles de Montesquieu

Equality...is the result of human organization. We are not born equal.

Hannah Arendt

In Italy, the country where fascism was born, we have a particular relation with the Holocaust, but as a turning point in history it belongs to everybody in the world. It is a part of humanity.

Roberto Benigni

A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, big or small, young or old. He doesn't care if you're not smart, not popular, not a good joke-teller, not the best athlete, nor the best-looking person. To your dog, you are the greatest, the smartest, the nicest human being who was ever born. You are his friend and protector.

Louis Sabin

[America is] a rebellious nation. Our whole history is treason; our blood was attained before we were born; our creeds were infidelity to the mother church; our constitution treason to our fatherland.

Theodore Parker

Immortality is what nature possesses without effort and without anybody's assistance, and immortality is what the mortals must therefore try to achieve if they want to live up to the world into which they were born, to live up to the things which surround them and to whose company they are admitted for a short while.

Hannah Arendt

Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers and fathering is a very important stage in their development.
