One way of watering down the effects of violence is to approach it in a more lighthearted way. I don't mean to say that you laugh when somebody has their arm sawn off, but you can diffuse fear with humour.

Aaron Burr

I learned in my four decades in Washington that one person can make a difference.

Rep. Andrews

George Washington, as a boy, was ignorant of the commonest accomplishments of youth. He could not even lie.

Mark Twain

One congressman is not going to go to Washington and change the economic history of a district. What a congressman does is change the economic circumstances.

Al Weed

As more money flowed through Washington and as Washington's power to regulate our lives grew, opportunities and temptations for graft, influence peddling and cutting corners grew exponentially. Power breeds corruption.

Steve Forbes

Cautiousness in judgment is nowadays to be recommended to each and every one: if we gained only one incontestable truth every ten years from each of our philosophical writers the harvest we reaped would be sufficient.

Georg C. Lichtenberg

Skepticism means, not intellectual doubt alone, but moral doubt.

Thomas Carlyle

The improver of natural knowledge absolutely refuses to acknowledge authority, as such. For him, skepticism is the highest of duties; blind faith the one unpardonable sin.

Gary Hart

A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.

Joseph Campbell

The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs, and explosions, and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, ideas, predjudices, to be found only in the minds of men. For the record, predjudices can kill and suspicion can destroy. A thoughtless, freightened search for a scapegoat has a fallout all it's own for the children yet unborn. And the pity of it is, is that these things can not be confined to the Twighlight Zone.

Rod Serling

Ignorance of what real learning is, and a consequent suspicion of it; materialism, and a consequent intellectual laxity, both of these have done destructive work in the colleges.

Katharine Fullerton Gerould

When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you - when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice - you may know that your society is doomed.

Ayn Rand

Up until now, we have done little but complain. Until now, we have stood by, watching native habitat disappear, and with it wildlife of all types. Instead of doing something, we have come to accept our present situation as inevitable and tolerable.

Abraham Lincoln

Paul Bourget

A friend told me that teenage girls are always looking for someone to pin their dreams on. That doesn't make it any less weird though.

Orlando Bloom

No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts off from its youth severs its lifeline.

Kofi Annan

No one is born a good citizen; no nation is born a democracy. Rather, both are processes that continue to evolve over a lifetime. Young people must be included from birth. A society that cuts off from its youth severs its lifeline.

Kofi Annan

One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community.

Albert Einstein

George Loveless

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

"Our dead never forget this beautiful world that gave them being. They still love its verdant valleys, its murmuring rivers, its magnificent mountains, sequestered vales and verdant lined lakes and bays, and ever yearn in tender fond affection over the lonely hearted living, and often return from the happy hunting ground to visit, guide, console, and comfort them."

Sophistication might be described as the ability to cope gracefully with a situation involving the presence of a formidable menace to one's poise and prestige (such as the butler, or the man under the bed -- but never the husband).

James Thurber

For a great tree death comes as a gradual transformation. Its vitality ebbs slowly. Even when life has abandoned it entirely it remains a majestic thing. On some hilltop a dead tree may dominate the landscape for miles around. Alone among living things it retains its character and dignity after death. Plans wither; animals disintegrates. But a dead tree may be as arresting, as filled with personality, in death as it is in life. Even in its final moments, when the massive trunk lies prone and it has moldering into a ridge covered with mosses and fungi, it arrives at a fitting and noble end. It enriches and refreshes the earth. And later, as part of other green and growing things, it rises again.

Edwin Way Teale

Since the business of politics is the conciliation of differing interests, justice must not merely be done, but to be seen to be done.

Sir Bernard Rowland Crick

If a government is to do great new things, it will need more support. If a government is to change the world, it will need mass support. This is one of the discoveries of modern government.

Sir Bernard Rowland Crick

What you have to watch out for are the theories that claim to be infallible. Because the only way their believers can win is to stomp out everyone who disagrees with them.

Robert X. Cringely

No one rises so high as he who knows not whither he is going.

Oliver Cromwell

I settled at Cold Mountain long ago, Already it seems like years and years. Freely drifting, I prowl the woods and streams And linger watching things themselves. Men don't get this far into the mountains, White clouds gather and billow. Thin grass does for a mattress, The blue sky makes a good quilt. Happy with a stone under head, Let heaven and earth go about their changes.

Gary Snyder

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, things arenít going to get better, theyíre not!

Dr. Seuss

You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our childresn--that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himselfÖ

Chief Seattle

Tis known by the name of perseverance in a good cause, and of obstinacy in a bad one.

Laurence Stern

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won't.

Henry Ward Beecher

Why can't a man stand alone? Must he be burdened by all that he's taught to consider his own? His skin and his station, his kin and his crown, his flag and his nation They just weigh him down

Declan Patrick Aloysius MacManus

Awareness is becoming acquainted with the environments, no matter where one happens to be. Man does not suddenly become aware or infused with wonder; it is something we are born with. No child need be told its secrets; he keeps it until the influence of gadgetry and the indifference of teen-age satiation extinguish its intuitive joy.

Sigurd F. Olson

Simplicity in all things is the secret of the wilderness and one of its most valuable lessons. It is what we leave behind that is important. I think the matter of simplicity goes further than just food, equipment, and unnecessary gadgets; it goes into the matter of thoughts and objectives as well. When in the wilds, we must not carry our problems with us or the joy is lost.

Sigurd F. Olson

Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth... It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.

Sigurd F. Olson

The mist was all gone from the river now and the rapids sparkled and sang. They were still young as the land was young. We were there to enjoy it, and the great machines seemed far away.

Sigurd F. Olson

Politics ... regarded as the study and pursuit of the true, enduring good of a community, as the application of great and unchangeable principles to public affairs, is a noble sphere of thought and action; but politics, in its common sense, or considered as the invention of temporary shifts, as the playing of a subtle game, as the tactics of party for gaining power and the spoils of office, and for elevating one set of men above another, is a paltry and debasing concern.

WILLIAM E. CHANNING

I used to work in jobs I hated because I needed the money to buy a guitar. I know what it feels like to be depressed. On the other hand, I also know what it feels like to have money, to be successful, to be independent, but I can tell you that money and success never solve your problems.

Chris Cornell

To die for ones country is such a worthy fate That all compete for so beautiful a death.

Pierre Corneille

In politics we presume that everyone who knows how to get votes knows how to administer a city or a state. When we are ill... we do not ask for the handsomest physician, or the most eloquent one.

Plato

Politics is a profession; a serious, complicated and, in its true sense, a noble one.

DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER

There is one class of men who from time to time have taken a keen and practical interest in the constitution of the Family, and they are the Statesmen. They have realized how intimately the welfare of the State depends upon the influence and nature of the Families from which it is constituted; and they have endeavoured that the State in turn should mould and influence the Family to its own purposes.

HELEN DENDY BOSANQUET

One is often guilty by being too just.

Pierre Corneille

The more you read and observe about this Politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that's out always looks the best.

Will Rogers

A true king is neither husband nor father; He considers his throne and nothing else.

Pierre Corneille

It is hard to hate what one has loved, And a half-extinguished fire is soon relit.

Pierre Corneille

It is hard to hate what one has loved, And a half-extinguished fire is soon relit.

Pierre Corneille

Egoism, which is the moving force of the world, and altruism, which is its morality, these two contradictory instincts, of which one is so plain and the other so mysterious, cannot serve us unless in the incomprehensible alliance of their irreconcilable antagonism.

Joseph Conrad

History repeats itself, but the special call of an art which has passed away is never reproduced. It is as utterly gone out of the world as the song of a destroyed wild bird.

Joseph Conrad

Who knows what true loneliness is not the conventional word, but the naked terror? To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion.

Joseph Conrad

Who knows what true loneliness is not the conventional word, but the naked terror? To the lonely themselves it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion.

Joseph Conrad

Any one who has stood upon a lofty summit and gazed over an inchoate tangle of deep canyons and cragged mountains, of sunlit lakelets and black expanses of forest, has become aware of a certain giddy sensation that there are no distances, no measures, simply unrelated matter rising and falling without any analogy to the banal geometry of breadth, thickness, and height.

Bob Marshall

A self-taught painter is one taught by a very ignorant person.

John Constable

Reviewers are usually people who would have been poets, historians, biographers, etc., if they could; they have tried their talents at one or the other, and have failed; therefore they turn critics.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Science fiction readers probably have the gene for novelty, and seem to enjoy a cascade of invention as much as a writer enjoys providing one.

Walter Jon Williams

In the course of her education she had gone through the history usually put into the hands of young people... now her ripened reason gave to her present study at least the advantage of novelty.

Charlotte Smith

One of the penalties of an ecological education is that one lives alone in a world of wounds. Much of the damage inflicted on land is quite invisible to laymen. And ecologist must either harden his shell and make believe that the consequences of science are none of his business, or he must be the doctor who sees the marks of death in a community that believes itself well and does not want to be told otherwise.

Aldo Leopold

What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.

Confucius

One would imagine that books were, like women, the worse for being old that they open their leaves more cordially that the spirit of enjoyment wears out with the spirit of novelty and that after a certain age, it is high time to put them on the s.

William Hazlitt

Only the flexibly creative person can really manage the future, Only the one who can face novelty with confidence and without fear.

Abraham Maslow

Some degree of novelty must be one of the materials in almost every instrument which works upon the mind; and curiosity blends itself, more or less, with all our pleasures.

Edmund Burke

The richest values of wilderness lie not in the days of Daniel Boone, nor even in the present, but rather in the future.

Aldo Leopold

Santa Fe is one of the best buys out there. This should give them a premium trading multiple and should benefit both shareholders.

Brad Beago

Becoming a broker in multiple states is one of the things we are exploring, as regulations and data availability vary by state and we think this could help.

Amy Bohutinsky

Alone dwells every man and everyone mocks everyone else, and a deserted island is our pain.

Albert Cohen

The Christian always mixes prudence with his devotion. He is willing to serve three gods, but draws the line at one wife.

H.L. Mencken

H.L. Mencken

What is a teacher? I'll tell you: it isn't someone who teaches something, but someone who inspires the student to give of her best in order to discover what she already knows.

Paulo Coelho

It is better to be high-spirited even though one makes more mistakes, than to be narrow-minded and all to prudent.

Vincent van Gogh

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

But prudence can also be understood as the difference between good and bad. I know the road we've taken is the good and prudent one.

Alejandro Toledo

Boredom helps one to make decisions.

Sidonie Gabrielle Colette

Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.

Akhenaton

None are so fond of secrets as those who do not mean to keep them; such persons covet secrets as a spendthrift covets money, for the purpose of circulation.

Charles Caleb Colton

When you have nothing to say, say nothing; a weak defense strengthens your opponent, and silence is less injurious than a bad reply.

Charles Caleb Colton

To change one's mind is rather a sign of prudence than ignorance.

Spanish Proverb

If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.

Omar Bradley

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

What we aim to do is calm the spirit and get in touch with the source from which everything comes, removing any trace of malice or egotism. If you spend too much time trying to find out what is good or bad about someone else, youll forget your own soul and end up exhausted and defeated by the energy you have wasted in judging others.

Paulo Coelho

Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth.

Bible

If I had to give you one piece of advice, it would be this: dont be intimidated by other peoples opinions.

Paulo Coelho

If someone is giving us something, thats because were incapable of getting it for ourselves.

Paulo Coelho

...Theres a romance to danger. Theres a romance to drinking, to drugs, to petty crime and to heartbreak and loneliness. All of those things can be used to make the STORY of our lives better.

Joey Comeau

Joey Comeau

The benefits of science are not only material ones. The truths that science teaches are of common interest the world over. The language of science is universal, and is a powerful force in bringing the peoples of the world closer together.

Arthur Holly Compton

Fame doesn't change anyone, it just finds idiots; if you are a anonymous idiot, only your family know it; but if you are famous, all people will know that you are idiot.

Patricia Conde Galindo

The bust of Colonel Sanders stands as a monument to cruelty and has no place in the Kentucky state Capitol.

Pamela Anderson

The powering thing behind the movie was to capture the feeling of being alone and going back to Kentucky and getting walloped by a sense of family I hadn't realized was so much in place.

Cameron Crowe

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

At first, when you hear of someone coming from Kentucky, and any time somebody rushes up to you and takes a picture of you or your children, I think everyone is leery.

Ann Kay

One need only think of the weather, in which case the prediction even for a few days ahead is impossible

Albert Einstein

Marriage is for women the commonest mode of livelihood, and the total amount of undesired sex endured by women is probably greater in marriage than in prostitution.

Bertrand Russell

Money, it turned out, was exactly like sex, you thought of nothing else if you didn't have it and thought of other things if you did.

James A. Baldwin

If everyone in business prepared as carefully as professional soldiers, they'd be better off.

Thomas Leo Clancy Jr.

All I am certain of right now is that I don't want to go anywhere, and that's not bad for someone who always used to run.

Eric Clapton

If we have learned one thing from the history of invention and discovery, it is that, in the long run and often in the short one the most daring prophecies seem laughably conservative.

William Clark

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

William Clark

Gossip is what no one claims to like -- but everyone enjoys.

Joseph Conrad

There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.

Oscar Wilde

War therefore is an act of violence to compel our opponent to fulfill our will.

Carl von Clausewitz

He's gone, and who knows how may he report Thy words by adding fuel to the flame?

John Milton

One who is too wise an observer of the business of others, like one who is too curious in observing the labor of bees, will often be stung for his curiosity.

Alexander Pope

No one gossips about other people's secret virtues.

Bertrand Russell

As to the power which money gives, it is that of brute force, it is the power of the bludgeon and the bayonet, and of the bribed press, tongue and pen.

William Cobbett

None are so fond of secrets as those who do not mean to keep them.

Charles Caleb Colton

I like summer. I like warmer weather and long days. I'm one of those silly people who still enjoy lying in the sun - my children are horrified!

Danielle Steel

It is perfectly monstrous the way people go about nowadayssaying things against one, behind one's back, that are absolutely and entirely true.

Oscar Wilde

One of the characteristics of the dream is that nothing surprises us in it. With no regret, we agree to live in it with strangers, completely cut off from our habits and friends.

Jean Maurice Eugne Clment Cocteau

See your disappointments as good fortune. One plan's deflation is another's inflation.

Jean Maurice Eugne Clment Cocteau

The dependence of one people upon another, even for the benefits of legislation, is the deepest source of national weakness.

Thomas Francis Meagher

Friendship needs no words it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.

Dag Hammarskjld

Friendship needs no words it is solitude delivered from the anguish of loneliness.

Dag Hammarskjld

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

Life only demands from you the strength you possess. Only one feat is possible not to have run away.

Dag Hammarskjld

Maturity: among other things, the unclouded happiness of the child at play, who takes it for granted that he is at one with his play-mates.

Dag Hammarskjld

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.

Dag Hammarskjld

Pray that your loneliness may spur you into finding something to live for, great enough to die for.

Dag Hammarskjld

It is one of the finest problems in legislation, what the state ought to take upon itself to direct and what it ought to leave, with as little interference as possible, to individual discretion.

Edmund Burke

One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation.

Thomas Brackett Reed

Milton Friedman

President Kennedy understood the importance of equal pay for equal work and signed historic legislation that gave women around the country hope that one day their wages would be on par with that of their male counterparts.

Rosa DeLauro

Technology is not neutral. We're inside of what we make, and it's inside of us. We're living in a world of connections and it matters which ones get made and unmade.

Donna Haraway

No matter how high or great the throne, What sits on it is the same as your own.

Edgar Yipsel Harburg

Writing is not "the establishment of a professional reputation" as if one were a doctor or lawyer; it is not properly in the sentence with creation of a family and the purchase of a home.

Elizabeth Hardwick

With all, the beautiful things of the earth become more dear as they elude pursuit; but with some natures utter elusion is the one special event which will make a passing love permanent for ever.

Thomas Hardy

With all, the beautiful things of the earth become more dear as they elude pursuit; but with some natures utter elusion is the one special event which will make a passing love permanent for ever.

Thomas Hardy

Of all the passions that inspire a man in a battle, none, we have to admit, is so powerful and so constant as the longing for honor and reknown.

Carl von Clausewitz

Great things alone can make a great mind, and petty things will make a petty mind unless a man rejects them as completely alien.

Carl von Clausewitz

A day is a more magnificent cloth than any muslin, the mechanism that makes it is infinitely cunninger, and you shall not conceal the sleezy, fraudulent, rotten hours you have slipped into the piece, nor fear that any honest thread, or straighter ste.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

YOU love everyONE, whether YOU realize it or not. And everyONE loves YOU whether they realize it or not. Imagine what that means

Marianne Williamson

YOU love everyONE, whether YOU realize it or not. And everyONE loves YOU whether they realize it or not. Imagine what that means

Marianne Williamson

Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.

General George S. Patton

To think bad thoughts is really the easiest thing in the world. If you leave your mind to itself it will spiral down into ever-increasing unhappiness. To think good thoughts, however, requires effort. This is one of the things that discipline training is about.

James Clavell

James Clavell

Political parties serve to keep each other in check, one keenly watching the other.

Henry Clay

Formerly, if you killed a man, it was possible that you were insanebut now, if you, having friends and money, kill a man, it is evidence that you are a lunatic.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

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 religion old or new, that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by the conventional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge.

Dr. Carl Sagan

All creatures killthere seems to be no exception; but of the whole list, man is the only one that kills for fun; he is the only one that kills in malice, the only one that kills for revenge.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

It is . . . sometimes easier to head an institute for the study of child guidance than it is to turn one brat into a decent human being.

Joseph Krutch

He alone is free who lives with free consent under the entire guidance of reason.

Benedict Spinoza

No man is great enough or wise enough for any of us to surrender our destiny to. The only way in which anyone can lead us is to restore to us the belief in our own guidance.

Henry Miller

Sooner or later we've got to tie the saving of the natural world to our own public welfare.

Jim Fowler

It is sometimes easier to head an institute for the study of child guidance than it is to turn one brat into a decent human being.

Sir Philip Sidney

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

Eminem

It is perhaps common in the world for individuals and nations to suffer for their noble qualities more than for their ignoble ones. For nobility is an occasion for pride, the most treacherous of sentiments.

Daniel Moynihan

War alone brings up to their highest tension all human energies and imposes the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have the courage to make it.

One may dislike Hitler's system and yet admire his patriotic achievement. If our country were defeated, I hope we should find a champion as indomitable to restore our courage and lead us back to our place among the nations.

Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill

Orphans, dead parents, lonely children at Christmas, morose spoken word recordings, everything you love about the holidays. Move the turkey over so you can fit your head in the oven.

April Winchell

Orphans, dead parents, lonely children at Christmas, morose spoken word recordings, everything you love about the holidays. Move the turkey over so you can fit your head in the oven.

April Winchell

One could make money and get a career going with a low-budget horror film about killers attacking on holidays. It is always flattering to have somebody copy you.
