Sir John James Cowperthwaite

In the country of the mad, the sane man is crazy.

Edmund Cooper

Now that the wars are coming to an end, I wish you to prosper in peace. May all mortals from now on live like one people in concord and for mutual advancement. Consider the world as your country, with laws common to all and where the best will govern irrespective of tribe. I do not distinguish among men, as the narrow-minded do, both among Greeks and Barbarians. I am not interested in the descendance of the citizens or their racial origins. I classify them using one criterion: their virtue. For me every virtuous foreigner is a Greek and every evil Greek worse than a Barbarian. If differences ever develop between you never have recourse to arms, but solve them peacefully. If necessary, I should be your arbitrator. You must not consider God like an autocratic despot, but as a common Father of all; so your behavior may resemble the life siblings have in a family.

As much as this depends on me, I should try to bring about what I promised. The oath we made over tonights libations hold onto as a Contract of Love.

The world is the most dangerous place it's ever been now because of what our country has done, and is doing, and we have to take it back.

Ramsey Clark

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens

Yesterday is yesterday. If we try to recapture it, we will only lose tomorrow.

William Jefferson (Bill) Clinton

The air of ones native country is the most healthy air.

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov

To my mind losing is always better than never trying, because you can never tell what may happen.

Joseph Jacques Jean Chrtien

The more we try to wrest ourselves from our ego, the deeper we sink into it.

Emil Cioran

It is unfortunate that we try to solve the simplest questions cleverly, and therefore make them unusually complicated. We should seek a simple solution.
