Good Quotes

A little more moderation would be good. Of course, my life hasn't exactly been one of moderation.

Donald Trump

What good has impatience ever brought? It has only served as the mother of mistakes and the father of irritation.

Steve Maraboli

As a teacher, as a propagandist, Shaw is no good at all, even in his own generation. But as a personality, he is immortal.

Sir Henry Maximilian Beerbohm

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

Edmund Burke

Much of the obscurity of our effort so far against terrorism originates in the now official idea that the enemy is evil and that we are (therefore) good, which is the precise mirror image of the official idea of the terrorists.

Wendell Berry

There never was a good war or a bad peace.

Benjamin Franklin

Reckless automobile driving arouses the suspicion that much of the horse sense of the good old days was possessed by the horse.


There are any number of people who profess to be good Christian people who are willing to believe all kinds of things on suspicion. Now that is not the way the Bible directs for Christian people to do.

John Harvey Kellogg

The Gnostics were the earliest Christians with anything like a regular theological system, and it is only too evident that it was Jesus who was made to fit their theology as Christos, and not their theology that was developed out of his sayings and doings. Their ancestors had maintained, before the Christian era, that the Great Serpent Jupiter, the Dragon of Life, the Father and "Good Divinity," had glided into the couch of Semele, and now, the post-Christian Gnostics, with a very trifling change, applied the same fable to the man Jesus, and asserted that the same "Good Divinity," Saturn (Ilda-Baoth), had, in the shape of the Dragon of Life, glided over the cradle of the infant Mary.

Helena Petrovna Hahn

Contemporary culture is not very good on responsibility.

Simon Blackburn

Greil Marcus

Woman wants monogamy; / Man delights in novelty. / Love is woman's moon and sun; / Man has other forms of fun. . . / With this the gist and sum of it, / What earthly good can come of it?

Dorothy Parker

Is it not good to know what follows from what, even if it is not necessarily FAPP? [FAPP is Bell's suggested abbreviation of "for all practical purposes."] Suppose for example that quantum mechanics were found to resist precise formulation. Suppose that when formulation beyond FAPP was attempted, we find an unmovable finger obstinately pointing outside the subject, to the mind of the observor, to the Hindu scriptures, to God, or even only Gravitation? Would that not be very, very interesting?

John Stewart Bell

Of every ten persons who talk about you, nine will say something bad, and the tenth will say something good in a bad way.
