Rutherford B. Hayes

The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

Dalai Lama

All religions are cruel, all founded on blood; for all rest principally on the idea of sacrifice-that is, on the perpetual immolation of humanity to the insatiable vengeance of divinity.

Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin

The idle man does not know what it is to enjoy rest.

Albert Einstein

The biblical case for vegetarianism does not rest on the view that killing may never be allowable in the eyes of God, rather on the view that killing is always a grave matter. When we have to kill to live we may do so, but when we do not, we should live otherwise

ANDREW LINZEY

Only in the last moment of human history has the delusion arisen that people can flourish apart from the rest of the living world.

E.O. Wilson

In the point of rest at the center of our being, we encounter a world where all things are at rest in the same way. Then a tree becomes a mystery, a cloud a revelation, each man a cosmos of whose riches we can only catch glimpses. The life of its simplicity is simple, but it opens to us a book in which we never get beyond the first syllable.

Dag Hammarskjold

The wilderness is a place of rest -- not in the sense of being motionless, for the lure, after all, is to move, to round the next bend. The rest comes in the isolation from distractions, in the slowing of the daily centrifugal forces that keep us off balance.

David Douglas

Touch the earth, loved the earth, in honor the earth: her plains, her valleys, her hills, and her seas; rest your spirits in her solitary places.

That man is blest Who does his best And leaves the rest, Then-do not worry.

Take what you can use and let the rest go by

Ken Kesey

The thing is plain. All that men really understand, is confined to a very small compass; to their daily affairs and experience; to what they have an opportunity to know, and motives to study or practice. The rest is affectation and imposture

William Hazlitt

I understand by this passion the union of desire, friendship, and tenderness, which is inflamed by a single female, which prefers her to the rest of her sex, and which seeks her possession as the supreme or the sole happiness of our being.

Edward Gibbon

Tenderness is the rest of passion.

Joseph Joubert

Man finds nothing so intolerable as to be in a state of complete rest, without passions, without occupation, without diversion, without effort. Then he feels his nullity, loneliness, inadequacy, dependence, helplessness, emptiness.

Blaise Pascal

The great passion in a man's life may not be for women or men or wealth or toys or fame, or even for his children, but for his masculinity, and at any point in his life he may be tempted to throw over the things for which he regularly lays down his life for the sake of that masculinity. He may keep this passion secret from women, and he may even deny it to himself, but the other boys know it about themselves and the wiser ones know it about the rest of us as well.

Frank Pittman

Color is crucial in painting, but it is very hard to talk about.

Roy Lichtenstein

The city of Washington is in some respects self-contained, and it is easy there to forget what the rest of the United States is thinking about.

Woodrow Wilson
