One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am a reluctant enthusiast... a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While its still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards.

Living from the Creator Orientation is actually more challenging. In the Victim Orientation, I didnt have to exercise conscious choice; I just reacted to my circumstances.

Suspicion is far more to be wrong than right; more often unjust than just. It is no friend to virtue, and always an enemy to happiness.

Hosea Ballou

Suspicion is not less an enemy to virtue than to happiness; he that is already corrupt is naturally suspicious, and he that becomes suspicious will quickly be corrupt.

Joseph Addison

Now my own suspicion is that the universe is not only queerer than we suppose, but queerer than we can suppose.

J. B. S. Haldane

The only thing I was fit for was to be a writer, and this notion rested solely on my suspicion that I would never be fit for real work, and that writing didn't require any.

Russell Baker

My job, my mission, the reason I have been put on this planet, is to save wildlife.

Steve Irwin

When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished by how much he'd learned in seven years.

Mark Twain

And my goal in life is to give to the world what I was lucky to receive: the ecstasy of divine union through my music and my dance.

Michael Jackson

It is important for people to realize that we can make progress against world hunger, that world hunger is not hopeless. The worst enemy is apathy.

Reverend David Beckmann

We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature."

Henry David Thoreau

It is also 10 percent of your population without food and facing starvation -- that is going to challenge any economy.

Douglas Keatinge

I saw everything from starvation and neglect to where dogs were chained to trees and had arrows shot through them and even cats set on fire. During my investigations, more times than not children or women living in the home had also been abused.

Barbara Leff

One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast... a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for awhile and contemplate the precious stillness, that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: You will outlive the bastards.

Edward Abbey

Recalling days of sadness, memories haunt me. Recalling days of happiness, I haunt my memories.

Robert Brault

I thank God, whom I serve from my forefathers with pure conscience, that without ceasing I have remembrance of thee in my prayers night and day. (2 Timothy 1:3)

Bible

Computers are sophisticated. In order for me to keep up with what my kids are doing I have to be a little more sophisticated than them, and this gives me a chance to do it.

Cheryll Cox

The present system of taking oaths is horrible. It is awfully absurd to make a man invoke God's wrath upon himself, if he speaks false; it is, in my judgment, a sin to do so.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

I owe my fame only to myself.

Pierre Corneille

He who can live in infamy is unworthy of life.

Pierre Corneille

A cool blooded and crafty politician, when he would be thoroughly revenged on his enemy, makes the injuries which have been inflicted, not on himself, but on others, the pretext of his attack. He thus engages the world as a partisan in his quarrel, and dignifies his private hate, by giving it the air of disinterested resentment.

CHARLES CALEB COLTON

The sea never changes and its works, for all the talk of men, are wrapped in mystery.

Joseph Conrad

Action is consolatory. It is the enemy of thought and the friend of flattering illusions.

Joseph Conrad

It is always my endeavour however in making a picture that it should be without a companion in the world. At least such should be a painters ambition.

John Constable

The major novelty of my theory was its claim that the most rapid evolutionary change does not occur in widespread, populous species, as claimed by Most geneticists, but in small founder populations.

Ernst Mayr

In my opinion, I think sarcasm and humor in a song, without turning it into a novelty song, is really charming.

Alanis Morissette

I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow.

David Hobson

Acceptance is the art of making the obstacle the path. Therefore, embrace the enemy. This is the lesson of the river guide: face the danger, move toward it, that's where the current is the strongest, and it will carry you around the obstacle. Use it.

China Galland†

If the administrative phase is conducted in two different courts and it leads to two different verdicts, then prudence and judicial economy would tell us that these proceedings should be consolidated into one court. It only makes sense.

Robert Hager

I love my past. I love my present. I'm not ashamed of what I've had, and I'm not sad because I have it no longer.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

If I were to persuade just one person to stop fighting for something they were convinced was worthwhile, I would end up persuading myself, and my whole life would be diminished.

Paulo Coelho

In the long term, the economy and the environment are the same thing. If it's unenvironmental it is uneconomical. That is the rule of nature.

Mollie Beatty†

My vision for Kentucky is a Commonwealth where there is so much economic opportunity, and our quality of life is so high, that people who are born here can stay here, and people who aren't fortunate enough to be born in Kentucky, can look forward to locating here.

Ernie Fletcher

And it blew my mind when I started to get wind of the fact that they actually liked me being around. That was humbling, because Kentucky basketball is a big deal, and I am not the biggest fan - I am just the most notorious one.

Ashley Judd

Sexiness is all in the eye of the beholder. I think it should be. Absolutely. My sex appeal, whatever it might be, isn't obvious... at least to me.

Sharon Tate

Diana had the combination of status and sex appeal which made her more starry than a movie star. Camilla scrubs up well but it takes an army of make-up artists and dress designers. Diana had it naturally.

Judy Wade

My favourite definition of "Intellectual" is: "Someone who has been educated beyond his/her intelligence."

William Clark

Men are always more inclined to pitch their estimate of the enemy's strength too high than too low, such is human nature.

Carl von Clausewitz

...the principles of political economy have elevated the working class above the place they ever filled before.

Richard Cobden

I do not find the supposed scientific consensus among my colleagues. Curiously, it is a feature of man-made global warming that every fact confirms it: rising temperatures or decreasing temperatures. No matter what the weather, some model of global warming offers a watertight explanation.

Javier Cuadros

Internet safety begins at home and that is why my legislation would require the Federal Trade Commission to design and publish a unique website to serve as a clearinghouse and resource for parents, teachers and children for information on the dangers of surfing the Internet.

Mike Fitzpatrick

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky

Rabindranath Tagore

I don't know Who or what put the question, I don't know when it was put. I don't even remember answering. But at some moment I did answer Yes to Someone or Something and from that hour I was certain that existence is meaningful and that, therefore, my life, in self-surrender, had a goal.

Dag Hammarskjld

The really nice breezes blow through my body and into my soul.†

Astrid Alauda

The myths have always condemned those who "looked back." Condemned them, whatever the paradise may have been which they were leaving. Hence this shadow over each departure from your decision.

Dag Hammarskjld

It is easy to be nice, even to an enemy from lack of character.

Dag Hammarskjld

The world gets grimy and the love object is in stark relief from its surroundings. This is love, a pretty thing on an ugly street and why wouldn't you pick it up if it appeared in a taxi cab.

Daniel Handler

My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing will begin in five minutes. - During radio microphone test.

Ronald Reagan

Through my LSD experience and my new picture of reality, I became aware of the wonder of creation, the magnificence of nature and of the animal and plant kingdom. I became very sensitive to what will happen to all this and all of us.

Albert Hofmann

The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.

Henry Miller

A creative economy is the fuel of magnificence.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The universe does not care whether man unlocks its secrets or leaves them closed. Water does not care whether man bathes in it or drowns in it; whether it waters his fields or washes them away. If man masters its laws and utilizes his knowledge, water becomes a force in his favor. But enemy or servant, water does not care.

Mark Clifton

Conscious of my own weakness, I can only seek fervently the guidance of the Ruler of the Universe, and, relying on His all-powerful aid, do my best to restore Union and peace to a suffering people, and to establish and guard their liberties and rights.

George B. McClellan

I'd go to, like, six different schools in one year. We were on welfare, and my mom never ever worked.

Eminem

The army is the true nobility of our country.

Napoleon Bonaparte

A family member asked my wife, "Aren't you concerned about his (our son's) socialization with other kids?" My wife gave this response: "Go to your local middle school, junior high, or high school, walk down the hallways, and tell me which behavior you see that you think our son should emulate."

Manfred B. Zysk

A man who doesnt drink is not, in my opinion, fully a man.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

My feelings are those of a schoolboy getting in sight of the holidays. Or more seriously, my feelings are perhaps those of a matador who has decided not to enter the bull ring.

Geoffrey Fisher

The truth is the Super Bowl long ago became more than just a football game. It's part of our culture like turkey at Thanksgiving and lights at Christmas, and like those holidays beyond their meaning, a factor in our economy.

Bob Schieffer

Never give in never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill

This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!

D.M. Dellinger

This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!

D.M. Dellinger

And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not what your country can do for you -- ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: Ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man

John F. Kennedy

For the West, the enemy was not "socialism" but capitalism. How to tame and subdue the polar bear, how to take over the talent, the science, the technology, how to buy out the human capital, how to acquire the intellectual property rights?

Michel Chossudovsky

This land is your land, but this land isn't my land - that is what so many of us thought. This 2nd class citizenship has sunk in so deeply that we have barely an awareness of it.

Moran Margaret Cho

The human heart is like a ship on a stormy sea driven about by winds blowing from all four corners of heaven.

Martin Luther

The greatest conqueror is he who overcomes the enemy without a blow

Chinese Proverb

When there is no enemy within, the enemies outside cannot hurt you.

African Proverb

A flatterer is a secret enemy

Hungarian Proverb

The enemy is within the gates; it is with our own luxury, our own folly, our own criminality that we have to contend

Marcus Tullius Cicero

When I came to New York it was the first time I'd ever taken a plane, the first time I'd ever gotten a taxi-cab, the first time for everything. And I came here with 35 dollars in my pocket. It was the bravest thing I'd ever done.

Madonna Louise Ciccone

Gardening, I told myself, is the most sociable of hobbies. The very nature of one's field of activities demands an audience. No one wants flowers to blush unseen or waste their sweetness.

Barbara Cheney

In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams. The thoughts grow as freely as the flowers, and the dreams are as beautiful.

Abram L. Urban

It is hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.

Sally Kempton

It pleases me to take amateur photographs of my garden, and it pleases my garden to make my photographs look professional.

Robert Brault

He who has a thousand friends has not a friend to spare, And he who has one enemy will meet him everywhere.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.

Stephen Hawking

When I was better known than her, she put my name in that tent. I was asked to do Celebrity Big Brother, but why should I? We live in an age where fame is not related to what you do.

Billy Childish

In my philosophy everyone, including the poor, sick and aged, belongs to one familyGods Family. God is at once poor and rich, sick and healthy, young and old, for He exists inside each and every individual. Here on earth we are all Gods children.

Sri Chinmoy

Art hath an enemy called ignorance

Ben Jonson

If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.

Sun Tzu

It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.

William Blake

I no doubt deserved my enemies, but I don't believe I deserved my friends

Walt Whitman

A weapon is a device for making your enemy change his mind.†

Lois McMaster Bujold

'My country, right or wrong' is a thing that no patriot would think of saying, except in a desperate case. It is like saying, 'My mother, drunk or sober'.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Thrift is the really romantic thing; economy is more romantic than extravagance... thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste... if a man could undertake to make use of all the things in his dustbin, he would be a broader genius than Shakespeare.

Gilbert Keith Chesterton

Everything becomes so problematic because of basic faults: from a discontent with myself.

Anna Freud

As might be supposed, my parents were quite poor, but we somehow never seemed to lack anything we needed, and I never saw a trace of discontent or a failure in cheerfulness over their lot in life, as indeed over anything.

Albert J. Nock

When I came to Los Angeles, it was the first time that I ever felt like I belong somewhere. Not because it was wacky, but because people here understood what I felt like to perform, and there were other kids my age who wanted to do it. I didn't get looked at as God, you freak.

Jennifer Love Hewitt

Well, rather than to give you my impression on Los Angeles, per se, my older sister's husband is and American, therefore I have a pretty good idea of the, perhaps the characteristics of Americans in general.

Nobuo Uematsu

I noticed I had developed a fantasy about myself as a writer as opposed to actually doing it [so] I finally summoned up the bad taste to move to Los Angeles.

Leslie Dixon

Fall is my favorite season in Los Angeles, watching the birds change color and fall from the trees.

David Letterman

My piece of bread only belongs to me when I know that everyone else has a share, and that no one starves while I eat.

Leo Tolstoy

The attraction, and my particular participation is in being able to communicate with my fans, answer their questions, get a feel for how they respond to Vader.

David Prowse

Fans are really important for me. And if they take pains to write me, it's the minimum that I answer myself.

Daniel Radcliffe

The love of these people and of my fans mean more than any award or special accomplishment.

Wynonna Judd

My biggest kick comes from the individual fans I run into. Middle-aged men ask me when we're going to do more Johnny Quest cartoons.

Joseph Barbera

I've never worried about what audiences would accept or had a game plan regarding the career. I never had an idea of how I should look to my fans or anybody else.

Antonio Banderas

I'm obsessive about the kind of melodrama of getting through the days and trying to make them good and funny and a happy experience. But my feeling towards the fans is that they delivered me from darkness.

Tom Baker

I find it so important now to be a role model and a figure. And I know that may sound strange to some people, but most important is my connection with my fans and the connection that they breed with one another.

Lady Gaga

I want my fans to know I'm there for them. I want them to see every part of me. I am never going to leave them.

Lady Gaga

Never a ship sails out of the bayBut carries my heart as a stowaway

Hosea Ballou

The more I see of the representatives of the people, the more I admire my dogs.

Alphonse de Lamartine

I can be so involved that I am no longer conscious of my needs or even of any pains. But there also have been many times when I felt the exhaustion - when it was physically painful, but I just couldn't stop.

Alton S. Tobey

You know, they ask me if I were on a desert island and I knew nobody would ever see what I wrote, would I go on writing. My answer is most emphatically yes. I would go on writing for company. Because I'm creating an imaginary it's always imaginary world in which I would like to live.

William Seward Burroughs

I checked myself in because I was just so exhausted, ... and I was working so much and I think anyone would back me up in saying 19 is just a really tough year.

Winona Ryder

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion. I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

Kurt Vonnegut

We are finally driven to monogamy not by morality but by exhaustion.

Erica Jong

Laughter and tears are both responses to frustration and exhaustion . . . . I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr.

I light my candle from their torches.

Robert Burton

I painted until I was exhausted. Then I forced myself to do another and it was the best thing I've done for weeks.

Joseph P. Blodgett

Starting in a hollowed log of wood some thousand miles up a river, with an infinitesimal prospect of returning! I ask myself 'Why?' and the only echo is 'damned fool!... the Devil drives'.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

The American people await action. They didn't send us here to bicker. They ask us to rise above the merely partisan. "In crucial things, unity" and this, my friends, is crucial.

George Herbert Walker Bush

Hollywood can be hard on women, but it did not cause my problems.

Gene Tierney

In Hollywood gratitude is Public Enemy Number One.

Hedda Hopper

You know, I could run for governor and all this but Im basically a media creation. Ive never really done anything. Ive worked for my dad. I worked in the oil industry. But thats not the kind of profile you have to have to get elected to public office.

George Walker Bush

If my books had been any worse, I should not have been invited to Hollywood, and if they had been any better, I should not have come.

Raymond Chandler

What we Republicans should stand for is growth in the economy. We ought to make the pie higher.

George Walker Bush

Those in authority should take appropriate precautions to protect our citizens. But we will not allow this enemy to win the war by changing our way of life or restricting our freedoms.

George Walker Bush

Hollywood grew to be the most flourishing factory of popular mythology since the Greeks.

Alistair Cooke

Every Iraqi atrocity has confirmed the justice and the urgency of our cause. (Applause.) Against this enemy we will accept no outcome except complete victory.

George Walker Bush

The enemy in Iraq believes America will run, that's why they're willing to kill innocent civilians, relief workers, coalition troops. America will never run. America will do what is necessary to make our country more secure.

George Walker Bush

[W]e're creating... an ownership society in this country, where more Americans than ever will be able to open up their door where they live and say, welcome to my house, welcome to my piece of property.

George Walker Bush

Americans are sacrificing. I mean, we are. You know, we pay a lot of taxes. Americans sacrificed when they, you know, when the economy went into the tank. Americans sacrificed when, you know, air travel was disrupted. American taxpayers have paid a lot to help this nation recover. I think Americans have sacrificed.

George Walker Bush

Today, having come far in our own historical journey, we must decide: Will we turn back, or finish well? Before history is written down in books, it is written in courage. Like Americans before us, we will show that courage and we will finish well. We will lead freedom's advance. We will compete and excel in the global economy. We will renew the defining moral commitments of this land. And so we move forward optimistic about our country, faithful to its cause, and confident of victories to come.

George Walker Bush

When I was in my 20s, I was a bookworm spent 12 hours of the day in the library. How I met George, I'll never know.

Laura Welch Bush

The only peace that can be made with a dictator is once that must be based on deterrence. For today, the dictator may be your friend, but tomorrow he will need you as an enemy.

Natan Sharansky

Every dictator is an enemy of freedom, an opponent of law.

Demosthenes

Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.

Edward L. Bernays

Machines with interchangeable parts can now be constructed with great economy of effort. In spite of much complexity, they perform reliably. Witness the humble typewriter, or the movie camera, or the automobile.

Vannevar Bush

In terms of doing work and in terms of learning and evolving as a person, you just grow more when you get more people's perspectives... I really try and live the mission of the company and... keep everything else in my life extremely simple.

Mark Zuckerberg

Paranoia is a survival trait when you run in my circles. It gives you something to do in your spare time, coming up with solutions to ridiculous problems that aren't ever going to happen. Except when one of them does, at which point you feel way too vindicated.

Jim Butcher

The heart of man is the place the devil dwells in; I feel sometimes a hell dwells within myself.

Sir Thomas Browne

Nothing that I can do will change the structure of the universe. But maybe, by raising my voice I can help the greatest of all causes - goodwill among men and peace on earth.

Albert Einstein

Superstition is to religion what astrology is to astronomy: the mad daughter of a wise mother.

Voltaire

If I die prematurely, at any rate I shall be saved from being bored by my own success.

Samuel Butler

America betrays its friends. It sets them up and betrays them. Id rather be Americas enemy.

Ahmed Abdel Hadi Chalabi

My greatest debt will always be to the movie-going public of yesterday and today, without whose love and devotion I would have had no story to tell.

Gloria Swanson

Destruction is a true sign of devotion. As I always tell my girlfriend when she threatens to kill me. 'You should kill me and it would tell me that you love me.

Billy Corgan

These worthy schoolteachers were not overburdened with diplomas, but as far as devotion and morality were concerned, they were second to none; they wore plum-colored silk blouses that caressed my cheeks when they pressed me to their bosoms.

Simone De Beauvoir

The solution, once revealed, must seem to have been inevitable. At least half of all the mystery novels published violate this law.

Raymond Thornton Chandler

I cannot lead you into battle. I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something elseI can give my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.

Elizabeth II

I had no shoes, and I felt sorry for myself until I met a man who had no feet. I took his shoes. Now I feel better.

George Denis Patrick Carlin

He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

Bible

When I started out in business, I spent a great deal of time researching every detail that might be pertinent to the deal I was interested in making. I still do the same today. People often comment on how quickly I operate, but the reason I can move quickly is that Ive done the background work first, which no one usually sees. I prepare myself thoroughly, and then when it is time to move ahead, I am ready to sprint.

Donald Trump

It has been my experience that the better a man you are, the more folks there are who resent you for it, and find occasion to get angry at you no matter how kindly meant your deeds may be.

Orson Scott Card

The other deals with my life and my livelihood and my family and all that I stand for.

Rafael Palmeiro

My writing is a combination of three elements. The first is travel: not travel like a tourist, but travel as exploration. The second is reading literature on the subject. The third is reflection.

Ryszard Kapuscinski

Pay me for my work but I don't do it for the money.

Vanna Bonta

Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who posses it; and this I know, my lords: that where law ends, tyranny begins.

William Pitt

A primary function of art and thought is to liberate the individual from the tyranny of his culture in the environmental sense and to permit him to stand beyond it in an autonomy of perception and judgment.

Beverly Sills

The Framers [of the Constitution] knew that free speech is the friend of change and revolution. But they also knew that it is always the deadliest enemy of tyranny.

Hugo Black

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

James Madison

In a capitalist country foreign trade, like any other trade, is carried on by individual firms, and individual firms cannot be guided in their activities by "global"considerations, by concern with the impact of their operations on the economy as a whole.

Paul Alexander Baran

My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted.

Steven Wright

The first question I ask myself when something doesn't seem to be beautiful is why do I think it's not beautiful. And very shortly you discover that there is no reason.

John Milton Cage Jr.

For astronomy is not only pleasant, but also very useful to be known: it cannot be denied that this art unfolds the admirable wisdom of God.

John Calvin

I am not satisfied in making money for myself. I endeavor to provide employment for hundreds of the women of my race.

Madam C.J. Walker

My character was formed by mountaineering. Enduring rainy slopes and cold bivouacs to spend an hour at the top of the world shaped my ability to handle adversity.

Candice Carpenter

All too often too often we try to push, pull, outline and control our ideas instead of letting them grow organically. The creative process is a process of surrender, not control. Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.

Julia Cameron

My view on issues is based on common sense, and my experience as a mother of four children, as a sole parent, and as a businesswoman running a fish and chip shop.

Pauline Hanson

Theater of cruelty means a theater difficult and cruel for myself first of all. And, on the level of performance, it is not the cruelty we can exercise upon each other by hacking at each other's bodies, carving up our personal anatomies, or, like Assyrian emperors, sending parcels of human ears, noses, or neatly detached nostrils through the mail, but the much more terrible and necessary cruelty which things can exercise against us. We are not free. And the sky can still fall on our heads. And the theater has been created to teach us that first of all.

Antonin Artaud

Today, when the Gospel is under attack from all directions, I too must ask the question: "What profit do you get from your unbelief?" I never get the impression that people have peace of mind or are happier for all their unbelief. No, my friends.

Wilhelm Busch

I'm the one who will not raise taxes. My opponent now says he'll raise them as a last resort, or a third resort. But when a politician talks like that, you know that's one resort he'll be checking into. My opponent, my opponent won't rule out raising taxes. But I will. And The Congress will push me to raise taxes and I'll say no. And they'll push, and I'll say no, and they'll push again, and I'll say, to them, Read my lips: no new taxes.

George Herbert Walker Bush

I am at peace with God. My conflict is with Man.

Charlie Chaplin

DO NOT, under any circumstances, cooperate with the FBI, FBI agents will lie, trick and deceive you. They will twist your words and play on your patriotism to entrap you. They will pretend to be people they are not supporters, well-wishers and friends all the while wearing wires to record your out-of-context statements to use against you. The FBI is the enemy; its a part of the problem, not the solution.

John Kiriakou

I used to suppose that certain evils could never befall a being in possession of a sound mind; that true virtue supplies us with energy which vice can never resist; that it was always in our power to obstruct, by his own death, the designs of an enemy who aimed at less than our lives.

Charles Brockden Brown

My narrative may be invaded by inaccuracy and confusion; but if I live no longer, I will, at least, live to complete it. What but ambiguities, abruptnesses, and dark transitions, can be expected from the historian who is, at the same time, the sufferer of these disasters?

Charles Brockden Brown

The interest in Lego may have come later. Certainly the grown-up Technic variant, with it gears and cogs and motors, fascinated me the most, and presumably some way into adolescence, as I remember constructing a colourful mechanical Wanking Machine during long periods upstairs in my room. The inevitable problem of round pegs and square holes sadly rendered this particular project fruitless, on many levels, but the manufacturers might like to take note of the idea when planning other themed kits for their teenage boy demographic.

Derren Victor Brown

My techniques are concerned with reading signals from people, tiny unconscious clues that betray their thoughts. I tend to see it like a game...

Derren Victor Brown

Some athletes use the mind to try and improve stamina and strength. Can I use my mind to take it away?

Derren Victor Brown

On this day I remember words that have stayed with me since my childhood and which matter a great deal to me today, my school motto: "I will try my outmost". This is my promise to all of the people of Britain and now let the work of change begin.

James Gordon Brown

Indians love to reduce the prosaic to the mystic.

Jan Morris

There are three principles in a man's being and life, the principle of thought, the principle of speech, and the principle of action. The origin of all conflict between me and my fellow-men is that I do not say what I mean and I don't do what I say.

Martin Buber

Sensual passions are your first enemy. Your second is called Discontent. Your third is Hunger & Thirst. Your fourth is called Craving. Fifth is Sloth & Drowsiness. Sixth is called Terror. Your seventh is Uncertainty. Hypocrisy & Stubbornness, your eighth. Gains, Offerings, Fame, & Status wrongly gained, and whoever would praise self & disparage others. That, Namuci, is your enemy, the Dark One's commando force. A coward can't defeat it, but one having defeated it gains bliss.

Gautama Buddha

I will go about, from kingdom to kingdom, training many disciples. They heedful, resolute doing my teachings despite your wishes, will go where, having gone, there's no grief.

Gautama Buddha

There is no maxim, in my opinion, which is more liable to be misapplied, and which, therefore, more needs elucidation, than the current one, that the interest of the majority is the political standard of right and wrong.

James Madison

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Martin Luther King Jr

I ... allowed my memory to journey back to the days when I was a boy of ten, full of health and optimism, when my wonder at the great game of living had yet to give way to disillusionment at its shabbiness.

Ruskin Bond

"If any want to become my followers," Jesus says. Following him is not something that is self-evident, even among the disciples. No one can be forced, no one can be expected to follow him. ... "If any want to follow me, they must deny themselves and take up their cross."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

My ministers are pro-German, my wife is pro-Italian, my people are pro-Russian I am the only neutral in the country.

P. J. Plauger

My lesbianism is an act of Christian charity. All those women out there praying for a man, and I'm giving them my share.

Rita Mae Brown

I think my election is one of several indications that gay and lesbian folk are being brought more into the center of things. I'd like to think that my election signals my bringing of gay and lesbian folk into the center of the church.

Gene Robinson

Show me a character whose life arouses my curiosity, and my flesh begins crawling with suspense.

Fawn McKay Brodie

But then to wake and find it flown, The dream of happiness destroyed, To find myself unloved, alone, What tongue can speak the dreary void? A heart whence warm affections flow, Creator, thou hast given to me, And am I only thus to know How sweet the joys of love would be?

Anne Bront

Expression is the mystery of beauty.

Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

I've dreamt in my life dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

Emily Jane Bront

There have been a number of us working very, very hard to bring myth and fairy tales into public consciousness, through fantasy literature and other media. I hope we're succeeding in some small way.

Terri Windling

Myth is supposed to bring us together, but fantasy alienates us.

Dustin Hoffman

The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge.

Albert Einstein

There have been few things in my life which have had a more genial effect on my mind than the possession of a piece of land.

Harriet Martineau

This land is your land and this land is my land, sure, but the world is run by those that never listen to music anyway.

Bob Dylan

It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being, and we therefore yield to our neighbors, even to our animal neighbors, the same right as ourselves to inhabit this vast land.

Sitting Bull

This land is your land and this land is my land, sure, but the world is run by those that never listen to music anyway.

Bob Dylan

If the sea were ink for the words of my Lord, the sea would be spent before the Words of my lord are spent.

Quran

Moderate lamentation is the right of the dead: excessive grief the enemy to the living.

William Shakespeare

My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night; but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -- it gives a lovely light!

Edna St. Vincent Millay

I feel there are two people inside me - me and my intuition. If I go against her, she'll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.

Kim Basinger

I owe all my success in life to having been always a quarter of an hour before my time.

Lord Nelson

Intuition isnt the enemy, but the ally, of reason.

John Kord Lagemann

So my great love for thee lies tranquil, deep, Forever; though above it passions fierce, Ambition, hatred, jealousy; like waves That seem from earths core to the sky to leap, But oceans depths can never really pierce; Hide its great calm, while all the surface raves.

Francis William Bourdillon

As soon as man does not take his existence for granted, but beholds it as something unfathomably mysterious, thought begins.

Albert Schweitzer

Rachel Carson

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

James Madison

Government is at best but an expedient; but most governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes, inexpedient. The objections which have been brought against a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing government.

Henry David Thoreau

It is the business of a statesman to judge of the expediency of different schemes of economy, and by degrees to model the minds of his subjects so as to induce them from the allurement of private interest to concur in the execution of his plan.

Sir James Steuart

My candle burns at both ends; it will not last the night; but ah, my foes, and oh, my friends -- it gives a lovely light!

Edna St. Vincent Millay

The finest lives, in my opinion, are those who rank in the common model, and with the human race, but without miracle, without extravagance.

Michel de Montaigne

My mother's illness fitted into this protest against the treatment of the sick who could not pay, the inefficiency of commercialism, the waste, the extravagance, and the poverty.

Ellen Wilkinson

The ecological principle of unity in diversity grades into a richly mediated social principle; hence my use of the term social ecology.

Murray Bookchin

Alice Borchardt

Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self-solitude is the enemy of well-being.

John Updike

Relationship is a pervading and changing mystery...brutal or lovely, the mystery waits for people wherever they go, whatever extreme they run to.

Eudora Welty

I think my writing was innate. Being so painfully shy and introverted as a child, as well as an extreme thinker with a hyperactive imagination, it seems befitting. It became such a powerful passion early on in life.

Kim Elizabeth

As the lily among thorns, so is my love among the daughters.

Solomon Ibn Gabirol

Especially today as we fight the war on terror - against an enemy that represents hatred, extremism and stands behind no flag - we need to remember the sacrifices that have gone into protecting our flag.

The form of my poem rises out of a past that so overwhelms the present with its worth and vision that I'm at a loss to explain my delusion that there exist any real links between that past and a future worthy of it.

Hart Crane

My mother brought me magicians and witches, because I was very ugly, really revolting. So she thought somebody had put a spell on me - this is the truth - so she made me drink some horrible terrifying potions, for year.

Howard Christy

Wonders are many, and none is more wonderful than the power that crosses the white sea, driven by the stormy wind, making a path under surges that threaten to engulf him...

Sophocles

A wonderful fact to reflect upon, that every human creature is constituted to be that profound secret and mystery to every other.

Charles Dickens

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.

Albert Einstein

Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.

Randy Bachman

Her body stay on top of my Summers like Suzanne.

Lil Wayne

I had the time of my life fighting dragons with you"LONG LIVE"

Taylor Swift

Man seeks to escape himself in myth, and does so by any means at his disposal. Drugs, alcohol, or lies. Unable to withdraw into himself, he disguises himself. Lies and inaccuracy give him a few moments of comfort.

Cocteau, Jean

White Shadows is one of my favorite songs on the record, ... It's just really strong rhythmically. And the fact that it's going down so well with crowds is very cool.

Wars come and go, but my soldiers stay eternal

Tupac Shakur

Bush You are the worst I have seen on this planet. God save the world from this threat.

Hugo Chavez

Life is my college. May I graduate well, and earn some honors!

Louisa May Alcott

I dont know if I wanted to top myself or if I just wanted someone to hug me.

Nigel Benn

In every aspect of our lives, we are always asking ourselves, How am I of value? What is my worth? Yet I believe that worthiness is our birthright.

Oprah Winfrey

He is not dead who departs from life with a high and noble fame; but he is dead, even while living, whose brow is branded with infamy.

Johann Ludwig Tieck

Clad in the magnificent white silk robes of an Arab prince, with in his belt the short curved, gold sword of the Ashraf descendants of the Prophet, he hoped to pass unnoticed through London. Alas, he was mistaken. "Who am I?" he would cry despairingly. "You are Lawrence of Arabia" passers-by would stop him and say, "And I claim my five pounds."

Alan Bennett

I have to live for others and not for myself; that's middle class morality

George Bernard Shaw

A lot of people think that the new economy is all about the internet. I think that it's being fueled by the internet - as well as by cell phones, digital assistants, and the like - but that it's really about customers.

Patricia Seybold

My cancer scare changed my life. I'm grateful for every new, healthy day I have. It has helped me prioritize my life.

Olivia Newton John

When it comes to my own turn to lay my weapons down, I shall do so with thankfulness and fatigue, and whatever be my destiny afterward, I shall be glad to lie down with my fathers in honor. It is human at least, if not divine.

Robert Louis Stevenson

Although I am not averse to wasting a few hours playing computer games, I have never tried my hand at Doom. Judging by sales figures and testimonials, playing the game has to be an infinitely preferable experience to watching this pathetic excuse for a movie.

James Berardinelli

Perhaps a better title for The Da Vinci Code might be Much Ado About Nothing. When you boil away the hype and hysteria, all that remains is a pedestrian murder mystery that isn't sufficiently challenging or scandalous to raise anyone's hackles. It's preposterous, overlong, and saddled with a sloppy denouement that defines the term "anti-climax." The film's two big "surprises" are telegraphed early, and the ease with which they can be guessed (using the "conservation of characters" process) leeches the movie of a large measure of its suspense. Individual scenes are entertaining in their own right, but the production as a whole is a lumbering mess.

James Berardinelli

The body is a device to calculate the astronomy of the spirit.

Mevlana Rumi

I can now see to the bottom of my own depths, there is nothing stopping my gaze, no obstacle is in the way. And there is nothing there.

Georges Bernanos

To seek solitude like a wild animal. That is my only ambition.

Dalai Lama

Solitude is for me a fount of healing which makes my life worth living.

C.G.Jung

Electricity is often called wonderful, beautiful; but it is so only in common with the other forces of nature. The beauty of electricity or of any other force is not that the power is mysterious, and unexpected, touching every sense at unawares in turn, but that it is under law, and that the taught intellect can even govern it largely. The human mind is placed above, and not beneath it, and it is in such a point of view that the mental education afforded by science is rendered super-eminent in dignity, in practical application and utility; for by enabling the mind to apply the natural power through law, it conveys the gifts of God to man.

Michael Faraday

He is his own best friend, and takes delight in privacy whereas the man of no virtue or ability is his own worst enemy and is afraid of solitude

Aristotle

Help someone, you earn a friend. Help someone too much, you make an enemy

Erol Ozan

It would be so nice to have the luxury just to laze. So nice not to have to always get up and get dressed for some occasion. Always having to move from here to there, where everything is scheduled and even having lunch with my kids on their Easter break has to be slotted in. Maybe one day...

Benazir Bhutto

I have learned to like myself for the first time and to have some serenity.
