  • Obedience to power is slavery; obedience to reason is freedom.


  • Monuments are evidence of mankind’s futile efforts to perpetuate what can be only temporal.


  • Those that reject pity may do so for fear of being looked down on; but also they may reject pity because they haven’t given up on the possibility overcoming their condition on their own.


  • Is it a form of plagiarism when we take the beliefs of another and claim them as our own?


  • Pity the ostentatious because they greatly fear their minuteness in the eyes of others.


  • The tether between ethics and morality is elastic, and is often stretched to breaking.


  • Those that make the rules are those that best understand how to avoid them.


  • The mistakes of the past are all waiting in line to be reincarnated by the next generation.


  • Looking for a fault in another rarely fails in finding what was sought..


  • Mourning is roughly proportional to the kindnesses withheld until too late.


  • A principle that is violated is seldom made whole again.


  • To say only that we need something, is meaningless; it is like saying that a smile exists without a face. Unless it is said that something is needed, in order to do or have something, need has no face.


  • The negative monster, growing within each of us is nurtured by our ignoring the positive parts of life in the same way that darkness can consume the light in a deep abyss.


  • When we declare that there is nothing at any particular location, it is only because we have failed to look closely enough; this is the same as when we decide that there is nothing in what another says.


  • We can commit with our mouths what we deny with our minds.


  • It is easy to predict the future; the problems come when trying to do it accurately.


  • When a freedom dies, its obituary reads: “Died of neglect”.


  • When opportunity knocks next door, assume an error and call out to it.


  • When around some individuals, to speak at length is like sending up a series of clay-targets for a skeet-shooter.


  • Often, when one digs a grave for another, he fails to leave it.


  • When an excuse pulls up lame, put it out of its misery.
