Fair Quotes

Other people snap up the riskless profits pretty fast and bid the price of calculable risk opportunities to near their fair values. Things get a lot less crowded if you go for the incalculable risks, leaps of faith that cannot be inspected carefully before takeoff. So that is where you find extraordinary opportunities.

Aaron C. Brown

The hand that hath made you fair hath made you good.

William Shakespeare

Life is never fair, and perhaps it is a good thing for most of us that it is not.

Oscar Wilde

Fair is foul, and foul is fair:Hover through the fog and filthy air.

William Shakespeare

It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself

Confucius

Morgan Tsvangirai

No God and no religion can survive ridicule. No political church, no nobility, no royalty or other fraud, can face ridicule in a fair field, and live.

Mark Twain

Benjamin Franklin

We used to root for the Indians against the cavalry, because we didn't think it was fair in the history books that when the cavalry won it was a great victory, and when the Indians won it was a massacre.

Dick Gregory

If people have personal conversations about very emotional matters in public, and people reveal parts of their body that were originally kept covered, and pornography is becoming semi-respectable, it makes you think the push for greater freedom and divesting yourself of inhibitions is a real human need. I'm 54, so I'm further back upon the road. We certainly did a fair amount of divesting ourselves of inhibitions, but there seems to have been a quantum leap in the last half a generation. Maybe we're destined to be freer, but it's taking odd forms, like showing your big gut to all the world and discussing the future of your marriage at a bus stop with 30 people listening in.

Martin Amis

Yasser Arafat

Diplomats are useful only in fair weather. As soon as it rains they drown in every drop

Interest works night and day in fair weather and in foul. It gnaws at a man's substance with invisible teeth.

Henry Ward Beecher

My life is fair game for anybody. I spent an unhappy penniless childhood in Brooklyn. I had to slug my way up in a town called Hollywood where people love to trample you to death. I don`t relax because I don`t know how. I don`t want to know how. Life is too short to relax.

Susan Hayward

He in a few minutes ravished this fair creature, or at least would have ravished her, if she had not, by a timely compliance, prevented him.

Henry Fielding

I know the world isn't fair, but why isn't it ever unfair in my favor?

Bill Watterson
