Martyrs, my friend, have to choose between being forgotten, mocked or used. As for being understood - never. ~ Albert Camus #quote

I am sure the next step will be the electronic image, and I hope I shall live to see it. I trust that the creative eye will continue to function, whatever technological innovations may develop. ~ Ansel Adams #quote

I am quite serious when I say that I do not believe there are, on the whole earth besides, so many intensified bores as in these United States. No man can form an adequate idea of the real meaning of the word, without coming here. ~ Charles Dickens #quote

Mustard Plaster- unwelcome guy who sticks around.  #FlapperSlang

If there is sin against life, it consists in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. ~ Albert Camus #quote

As for types like my own, obscurely motivated by the conviction that our existence was worthless if we didn't make a turning point of it, we were assigned to the humanities, to poetry, philosophy, painting - the nursery games of humankind, which had to be left behind when the age of science began. The humanities would be called upon to choose a wallpaper for the crypt, as the end drew near. ~ Saul Bellow #quote

Any society that needs disclaimers has too many lawyers.  ~ Erik Pepke #quote

In default of inexhaustible happiness, eternal suffering would at least give us a destiny. But we do not even have that consolation, and our worst agonies come to an end one day. ~ Albert Camus #quote

My downfall raises me to infinite heights. ~ Napoleon Bonaparte #quote

We don't give our criminals much punishment, but we sure give 'em plenty of publicity.  ~ Will Rogers #quote

Our government... teaches the whole people by its example.  If the government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy.  ~ Louis Dembitz Brandeis #quote

The sea - this truth must be confessed - has no generosity. No display of manly qualities - courage, hardihood, endurance, faithfulness - has ever been known to touch its irresponsible consciousness of power. ~ Joseph Conrad #quote

A lot of people say to me, Why did you kill Christ?
I dunno… it was one of those parties, got out of hand, you know. ~ Lenny Bruce #quote

We killed him because he didn’t want to become a doctor, that’s why we killed him. ~ Lenny Bruce #quote

The only justification for repressive institutions is material and cultural deficit. But such institutions, at certain stages of history, perpetuate and produce such a deficit, and even threaten human survival. ~ Noam Chomsky #quote

Life is made of ever so many partings welded together. ~ Charles Dickens #quote

Eskimo hunters traveling alone are sometimes stricken by "kayak angst" - delusions that their boat is flooding or sinking. #Factoids

Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such. ~ Henry Miller #quote

If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. ~ Laurence J. Peter  #quote

Some deaf people stutter in sign language. #Factoids

Opportunities are like sunsets. If you wait too long, you miss them. ~ William Arthur Ward #quote

Painting in water-colour is like walking a tight-rope; one must achieve a perfect balance between what the paint wants to do and what the artist wants to do, or all is lost. ~ Mary C. Taylor #quote

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. ~ Helen Keller #quote

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. ~ Aleister Crowley #quote

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.  ~ Voltaire #quote

What progress we are making.  In the Middle Ages they would have burned me.  Now they are content with burning my books.  ~ Sigmund Freud #quote

Human beings are seventy percent water, and with some the rest is collagen. ~ Martin Mull  #quote

You can only be free if I am free. ~ Clarence Darrow #quote

The aim of art, the aim of a life can only be to increase the sum of freedom and responsibility to be found in every man and in the world. It cannot, under any circumstances, be to reduce or suppress that freedom, even temporarily. No great work has ever been based on hatred and contempt. On the contrary, there is not a single true work of art that has not in the end added to the inner freedom of each person who has known and loved it. ~ Albert Camus #quote

Cessation of work is not accompanied by cessation of expenses. ~ Cato The Elder #quote

I don't believe in God because I don't believe in Mother Goose. ~ Clarence Darrow #quote

All paths are the same, leading nowhere. Therefore, pick a path with heart ~ Carlos Castaneda #quote

The highest possible stage in moral culture is when we recognize that we ought to control our thoughts. ~ Charles Darwin #Quote

It is well to be alone. It fertilizes the creative impulse. ~ Max Nordau #quote

The rebel can never find peace. He knows what is good and, despite himself, does evil. The value which supports him is never given to him once and for all ~ he must fight to uphold it, unceasingly. ~ Albert Camus #quote

You may delay, but time will not. ~ Benjamin Franklin  #quote

If you care at all, you’ll get some results. If you care enough, you’ll get incredible results. ~ Jim Rohn #quote

People seldom do what they believe in. They do what is convenient, then repent. ~ Bob Dylan #quote

The secret of man's being is not only to live but to have something to live for. ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky #quote

The difference between false memories and true ones is the same as for jewels: it is always the false ones that look the most real, the most brilliant. ~ Salvador Dali #quote

Skiing combines outdoor fun with knocking down trees with your face. ~ Dave Barry #quote

The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four Americans is suffering from some form of mental illness. Think of your three best friends. If they are okay, then it's you. ~ Rita Mae Brown #quote

At the bottom of all the tributes paid to democracy is the little man walking into the little booth with a little pencil, making a little cross on a little bit of paper. No amount of rhetoric or voluminous discussion can possibly diminish the overwhelming importance of that point. ~ Sir Winston Churchill #quote

You can't trust water: Even a straight stick turns crooked in it. ~ W.C. Fields #quote

Innovation! One cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics. ~ Coco Chanel #quote

I was a man who was lucky enough to have discovered a political theory, a man who was caught up in the whirlpool of Cuba's political crisis...; discovering Marxism...was like finding a map in the forest. ~ Fidel Castro #quote

If you are not big enough to lose you are too small to win.  #OneLiners

Good critical writing is measured by the perception and evaluation of the subject; bad critical writing by the necessity of maintaining the professional standing of the critic. ~ Raymond Chandler #quote

What are the proper proportions of a maxim? A minimum of sound to a maximum of sense. ~ Mark Twain #quote

I don't think that the flesh is necessarily treacherous, evil, bad. It is cantankerous, and it is independent. The idea of independence is the key. It really is like colonialism. The colonies suddenly decide that they can and should exist with their own personality and should detach from the control of the mother country. At first the colony is perceived as being treacherous. It's a betrayal. Ultimately, it can be seen as the separation of a partner that could be very valuable as an equal rather than as something you dominate. ~ David Cronenberg #quote

People that pay for things never complain. It's the guy you give something to that you can't please. ~ Will Rogers #quote

Every man who accomplishes things sees first in his mind what he wishes to do. He puts away all doubt. It makes no difference how small or how large the thing you want to do may be; if you have an unlimited confidence in your ability to do it, you will do it. ~ Charles Fillmore #quote
