Good Quotes

A good writer possesses not only his own spirit but also the spirit of his friends.

Friedrich Nietzsche

All good song-writers have no more than half a dozen good tunes in their systems, and if they have that many, they are liberally blessed.

Irving Berlin

But I think the spirit of man is a good adversary

Tennessee Williams

A good Christian does not care for miracles very much, because a miracle is God looking after His own affairs, and we prefer looking after them for Him.

Georges Bernanos

I get offered varied parts, often super sexy roles. But I still think it's an issue to find the good scripts. It's a myth that you win an Oscar and you get more opportunities, and this doesn't just go for me.

Halle Maria Berry

Jean de la Bruyere

Society, my dear, is like salt water, good to swim in but hard to swallow.

Chinese Proverb

Great strength of body is the gift of nature; But to be able to advise whate'er Is most expedient for one's country's good, Is the peculiar work of sense and wisdom.

Bias

Just as the good actor perform well whatever role the poet assigns, so too must the good man perform whatever Fortune assigns. For she, says Bion, just like a poet, sometimes assigns the leading role, sometimes that of the supporting role; sometimes that of a king, sometimes that of a beggar. Do not, therefore, being a supporting actor, desire the role of the lead.

Bion of Borysthenes

Serenity is knowing that your worst shot is still pretty good.

William Shakespeare

Panics, in some cases, have their uses; they produce as much good as hurt. Their duration is always short; the mind soon grows through them and acquires a firmer habit than before. But their peculiar advantage is, that they are the touchstone of sincerity and hypocrisy, and bring things and men to light, which might have lain forever undiscovered.

Thomas Paine

He who would do good to another must do it in Minute Particulars. General Good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite, and flatterer; For Art and Science cannot exist but in minutely organized particles.

William Blake

Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so. Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.
