Quotations

The world is wide, and I will not waste my life in friction when it could be turned into momentum.
Frances Willard (1839-1898)

Love flies, runs, and rejoices; it is free and nothing can hold it back.
Thomas a Kempis (1380-1471)

The last temptation is the greatest treason: to do the right deed for the wrong reason.
T.S. Eliot (1888-1965)

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Mark Twain (1835-1910)


Whatever you are by nature, keep to it; never desert your line of talent. Be what nature intended you for and you will succeed.
Sydney Smith (1771-1845)


You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.
Malcolm X (1925-1965)

No one can build his security upon the nobleness of another person.
Willa Cather (1873-1947)

Even God cannot change the past.
Agathon (448 BC-400 BC)

Patience serves as a protection against wrongs as clothes do against cold. For if you put on more clothes as the cold increases, it will have no power to hurt you. So in like manner you must grow in patience when you meet with great wrongs, and they will then be powerless to vex your mind.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.
Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
