  • Perhaps the reason that so many are more praised after their deaths than before is because the praise canít go to their heads.


  • Those that claim that crime doesnít pay, never knew a defense attorney.


  • We seldom misjudge others so much as when we assume that they will act rationally.


  • The rationality of a mob is far less than the sum of its parts.


  • In nature, our deaths are no more than the falling of autumn leaves.


  • Perhaps it would be better for some if today were named do-day.


  • We have built dams against the flow of water, but none against the flow of time.


  • Obligations arenít chains that we can make and impose on another; rather, obligations are the chains that one makes and imposes on oneself.


  • Labor unions that will not restrain their demands are like a fruit picker that will cut down the apple tree to get its fruit.


  • If we all expressed anger to everyone that angered us that anger would spread around the world in a matter of a few day; love works the same way, but because of human nature. it spreads so slowly that few seem to notice it because of their anger.


  • Repetitive work has the benefit of making products less expensive; but it also has the effect of making satisfying work almost nonexistent.

  • Knowledge is only a tool that can be used to make something out of lifeís experiences in much the same way that that a carpenterís tools can be used to make a home out of lumber.


  • Do you suppose that those that talk to themselves require external stimuli before they can take their thoughts seriously?


  • When a baby is born, the parents are happy that the child isnít crippled in some way; to show their relief, they often set about to cripple the child by trying to protect it from the consequences of its acts.


  • One doesnít have to be blind to overlook the shortcomings of others; it only requires that we donít possess our own shortcoming of being critical.


  • Some are all cackle but no egg.


  • As we would want the world to treat our children well, we should also treat others well because they are the children of others.
