World Quotes

I wonder will death be much lonelier than life. Life's an awfully lonesome affair. You can live close against other people yet your lives never touch. You come into the world alone and you go out of the world alone yet it seems to me you are more alone while living than even coming and going.

Emily Carr

I suppose every child has a world of his own and every man, too, for the matter of that. I wonder if that's the cause for all the misunderstanding there is in Life?

Charles Lutwidge Dodgson

The world attributes its misfortunes to the schemes and plottings of the very evil and powerful. I think stupidity is underestimated.

Adolfo Bioy Casares

This is my country, that is your country, these are the conceptions of narrow souls, to the liberal minded the whole world is a family

Barrister Virchand Gandhi

If the world were clear, art would not exist.

Albert Camus

The world evades us because it becomes itself again. That stage scenery masked by habit becomes what it is. It withdraws at a distance from us.

Albert Camus

The greatest saving one can make in the order of thought is to accept the unintelligibility of the world -- and to pay attention to man.

Albert Camus

The world talks to the mind. Parents speak more intimately -- they talk to the heart.

Hain Ginott

There came into the world an unlimited abundance of everything people need. But people need everything except unlimited abundance.

Karel Čapek

Humanity-attached-to-the-task-of-changing-the-world, which is only a single and fragmentary aspect of humanity, will itself be changed in humanity-as-entirety.

Georges Bataille

A little wit and plenty of authority, that is what has almost always governed the world.

Jean Louis Guez de Balzac

Criticism, whatever may be its pretensions, never does more than to define the impression which is made upon it at a certain moment by a work wherein the writer himself noted the impression of the world which he received at a certain hour.

James Branch Cabell

I am content. While my shrewd fellows rode about the world to seek and to attain power and wisdom, I have elected, as and unpractical realist, to follow after beauty.

James Branch Cabell

There is not one little blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make men rejoice.

John Calvin

It's only when a man tames his own demons that he becomes the king of himself if not of the world.

Joseph Campbell

The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.

George Walker Bush

Do what thy manhood bids thee do, from none but self expect applause; He noblest lives and noblest dies who makes and keeps his self-made laws. All other Life is living Death, a world where none but Phantoms dwell, A breath, a wind, a sound, a voice, a tinkling of the camel-bell.

Sir Richard Francis Burton

Obama is neither a socialist, nor a mere political accountant. He has some modest ideals, and may yet be an excellent president. But what is needed to revive liberal idealism is a set of new ideas on how to promote justice, equality and freedom in the world. Reagan, Thatcher, and Gorbachev, assisted in the end of an ideology, which once offered hope, and inspired real progress, but resulted in slavery and mass murder. We are still waiting for a new vision, which will lead to progress, but this time, we hope, without tyranny.

Ian Buruma

We need not be afraid to touch, to feel, to show emotion. The easiest thing in the world is to be what you are, what you feel. The hardest thing to be is what other people want you to be. Dont let them put you in that position.

Dr. Felice Leonardo Buscaglia

We live in a small world. Not a leaf falls that doesn't affect a myriad of things. When we reach out to someone in love and the effect is made everyone, everything which comes in contact with the person we've effected is better for it. Of course, the converse is true, too.

Dr. Felice Leonardo Buscaglia

We can ask ourselves daily what we have done to make the world a better place, to make someone smile, to help someone to feel more secure, etc. It's the simple things which have the greatest effect. We must never underestimate the strength of a smile or act of kindness.

Dr. Felice Leonardo Buscaglia

I owe my view of the world to the Bible. To my mind, the Bible's approach is the only valid one. Most philosophies usually go out of date within 20 years.

Wilhelm Busch

Christian life is not realized in developing the personality or in shaping human community and somehow changing the world but in turning away from the world and becoming free of it.

Rudolf Karl Bultmann

I know that it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders right now, but as Americans begin to realize that we are devolving into a police state, with the loss of civil liberties that entails, they will see your actions for what they are: heroic.

John Kiriakou
