Good Quotes

Routine has nothing to do with repetition. To become really good at anything, you have to practice and repeat, practice and repeat, until the technique becomes intuitive.

Paulo Coelho

All good music resembles something. Good music stirs by its mysterious resemblance to the objects and feelings which motivated it.

Jean Maurice Eugne Clment Cocteau

Everything is good in due measure and strong sensations know not measure.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

All things are from God; and above all, reason and imagination and the great gifts of the mind. They are good in themselves; and we must not altogether forget their origin even in their perversion.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

One that confounds good and evil is an enemy to the good.

Christopher Jordan Dorner

I lived a good life and though not a religious man I always stuck to my own personal code of ethics, ethos and always stuck to my shoreline and true North. I didnt need the US Navy to instill Honor, Courage, and Commitment in me but I thank them for re-enforcing it. Its in my DNA.

Christopher Jordan Dorner

I have the right to do whatever I wish with my property. If I own a pile of wood, I can set fire to it even if it is currently nailed together in the shape of a barn. Cigarettes may not be healthy for me in the long run, but I have the freedom to smoke them anyway. Drinking alcohol may or may not have negative side effects, but even if it does, the government has no authority to prohibit you from consuming it, even if it is "in your own best interest." Since when do we let the government decide what is or isn't good for us? What the hell does Congress know about nutrition, anyway? (For that matter, what does Congress know about the Constitution?) If the government can use force whenever something is "in our best interest" then government should force everyone to wake up at 6am every morning for calisthenics in the front yard. Fast food establishments should be torn down and replaced with bars that serve carrot juice and alfalfa sprouts, since - "it's in your best interest." This paternalistic attitude that "the government knows best" and that you are merely a helpless child is insulting and reprehensible. Hitler used the same attitude to persuade the Germans to subjugate themselves to the "Fatherland."

Michael J. Badnarik

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.

Greenville Kleisser

Life only gives us exactly what we ask for, both good and bad. The real challenge is in understanding the subtle ways in which we ask.
