  • The present is like the period at the end of a sentence in a paragraph, - tiny but still the end of all that preceded and just before all that will follow.


  • A library is the tomb of the thoughts of mankind throughout the ages, just waiting for reincarnation.


  • Violence, when used against those that have different beliefs, acts like a smelter and forge that turns bits of iron into a sword.


  • The predispositions of a listener, lubricate the successful launching of a lie by another.


  • The chronic liar is handicapped in this world by never believing those that tell him the truth.


  • It is impossible for a happy marriage, and perhaps any marriage, to endure when each party wants to go in different directions; this would be like a team of horses, pulling a wagon, but deciding to go their separate ways.


  • Anything that canít be measured should be regarded as hypothetical.


  • Although change is the one constant in life, the kind of change isnít.


  • To the miserable, the sweetest story is of the greater misery of another.


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


  • We seldom dislike another that likes the same music that we do.


  • The numbers of those, imprisoned by any country, is a testament to the failure of that country.


  • Newspapers tend to focus on those things that are most alarming; and the reason that they do so is because we need alarm to interrupt our boredom.

  • Repeated denials become a confession.


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


  • The only things that are perfect are those things where we ignore their imperfections.


  • The mere fact that we never doubt something adds or subtracts nothing from its existence.


  • Everyone always looks better with a bulging wallet.


  • Much of we regard as progress today, will someday, be regarded as regress.


  • When individuals gather together to plan harm to another we call that a conspiracy; but when individuals gather together to produce good, we have no similar word.


  • Many a plan is detoured by the words of others that say that the plan wonít work. Many successes have come from not taking detours.


  • Some days are too slippery to seize; and other days seem capable of seizing us.
