The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
It is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that.
A religious man is a person who holds God and man in one thought at one time, at all times, who suffers harm done to others, whose greatest passion is compassion, whose greatest strength is love and defiance of despair.
Just in terms of allocation of time resources, religion is not very efficient. There's a lot more I could be doing on a Sunday morning.
Time heals griefs and quarrels, for we change and are no longer the same persons.
All things grow with time - except grief.
Time is a physician that heals every grief.
Well, youth is the period of assumed personalities and disguises. It is the time of the sincerely insincere.
Youth is the time of getting, middle age of improving, and old age of spending.
Time, the subtle thief of youth
Youth is the best time to be rich; and the best time to be poor
Time - our youth - it never really goes, does it? It is all in our minds
Youth is a time when we find the books we give up but do not get over.
It is an illusion that youth is happy, an illusion of those who have lost it; but the young know they are wretched, for they are full of the truthless ideals which have been instilled into them, and each time they come in contact with the real they are bruised and wounded.
Experience is by industry achieved, and perfected by the swift course of time
The spectacles of experience; through them you will see clearly a second time
Most of the most important experiences that truly educate cannot be arranged ahead of time with any precision.
Time does not, and shall never, equal experience.
If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem. It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.
I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people
I suppose that leadership at one time meant muscle; but today it means getting along with people.
I never look at the masses as my responsibility; I look at the individual. I can only love one person at a time - just one, one, one. So you begin. I began - I picked up one person. Maybe if I didn't pick up that one person, I wouldn't have picked up forty-two thousand....The same thing goes for you, the same thing in your family, the same thing in your church, your community. Just begin - one, one, one.
In times like these men should utter nothing for which they would not be willingly responsible through time and in eternity.
Will we ever return to a time before dreams were slogans?
A man must dream a long time in order to act with grandeur, and dreaming is nursed in darkness.
