I think remorse ought to stop biting the consciences that feed it. ~ Ogden Nash #quote

Love is the kind of illness that does not spare the intelligent or the dull. ~ Albert Camus #quote, Caligula

What I said never changed anyone. What they understood did. ~ Unknown #quote

The greatest horrors in the history of mankind are not due to the ambition of the Napoleons or the vengeance of the Agamemnons, but to the doctrinaire philosophers. The theories of the sentimentalist Rousseau inspired the integrity of the passionless Robespierre. The cold-blooded calculations of Karl Marx led to the judicial and business-like operations of the Cheka. ~ Aleister Crowley #quote

I argue very well. Ask any of my remaining friends. I can win an argument on any topic, against any opponent. People know this, and steer clear of me at parties. Often, as a sign of their great respect, they don't even invite me. ~ Dave Barry #quote

We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two.  We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about "and."  ~ Arthur Stanley Eddington #quote

People between 20 and 40 are not sympathetic. The child has the capacity to do but it can't know. It only knows when it is no longer able to do - after 40. Between 20 and 40 the will of the child to do gets stronger, more dangerous, but it has not yet begun to know yet. Since his capacity to do is forced into channels of evil through environment and pressures, man is strong before he is moral. The world's anguish is caused by people between 20 and 40. ~ William Faulkner #quote, interview in Writers at Work

Every great mistake has a halfway moment, a split second when it can be recalled and perhaps remedied. ~ Pearl Buck #quote

Cinema is an old whore, like circus and variety, who knows how to give many kinds of pleasure. Besides, you can't teach old fleas new dogs. ~ Federico Fellini #quote, "Atlantic Monthly"

Love dies only when growth stops. ~ Pearl Buck #quote

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~ Albert Camus #quote

No matter how much you think you love somebody, you'll step back when the pool of their blood edges up too close. ~ Chuck Palahniuk #quote,  Invisible Monsters

All this talk about equality. The only thing people really have in common is that they are all going to die. ~ Bob Dylan #quote

Innately, children seem to have little true realistic anxiety. They will run along the brink of water, climb on the window sill, play with sharp objects and with fire, in short, do everything that is bound to damage them and to worry those in charge of them, that is wholly the result of education; for they cannot be allowed to make the instructive experiences themselves. ~ Sigmund Freud #quote

I am free of all prejudices. I hate everyone equally. ~ W.C. Fields #quote

In dreams the truth is learned that all good works are done in the absence of a caress. ~ Leonard Cohen #quote

Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence. ~ Albert Einstein #quote

Man is the only animal who enjoys the consolation of believing in a next life; all other animals enjoy the consolation of not worrying about it.  ~ Robert Brault #quote

Regrets are the natural property of grey hairs. ~ Charles Dickens #quote

I've never had a problem with drugs.  I've had problems with the police.  ~ Keith Richards #quote

It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away. ~ Charles Dickens #quote

The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.  ~ Anatole France (Jacques Anatole François Thibault), The Red Lily #quote

People accuse journalism of being too personal; but to me it has always seemed far too impersonal. It is charged with tearing away the veils from private life; but it seems to me to be always dropping diaphanous but blinding veils between men and men. The Yellow Press is abused for exposing facts which are private; I wish the Yellow Press did anything so valuable. It is exactly the decisive individual touches that it never gives; and a proof of this is that after one has met a man a million times in the newspapers it is always a complete shock and reversal to meet him in real life. ~ G.K. Chesterton #quote

I have a rock garden. Last week three of them died. ~ Richard Diran #quote

Music is the language of the spirit. It opens the secret of life bringing peace, abolishing strife. ~ Kahlil Gibran #quote

It is no use saying, 'We are doing our best.' You have got to succeed in doing what is necessary. ~ Sir Winston Churchill #quote

Marriage is an alliance entered into by a man who cannot sleep with window shut, and a woman who cannot sleep with the window open. ~ Ogden Nash #quote

To be happy we must not be too concerned with others. ~ Albert Camus #quote

To assert in any case that a man must be absolutely cut off from society because he is absolutely evil amounts to saying that society is absolutely good, and no-one in his right mind will believe this today. ~ Albert Camus #quote

We know, Mr. Weller ~ we, who are men of the world ~ that a good uniform must work its way with the women, sooner or later. ~ Charles Dickens #quote

I'm completely in favour of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death. ~ George Carlin #quote

Do not free the camel of the burden of his hump; you may be freeing him from being a camel. ~ G.K. Chesterton #quote

Freedom is nothing else but a chance to be better. ~ Albert Camus #quote

When I want any, good head work done; I always choose a man, if possible with a long nose. ~ Napoleon Bonaparte #quote

The question that will decide our destiny is not whether we shall expand into space. It is: shall we be one species or a million? A million species will not exhaust the ecological niches that are awaiting the arrival of intelligence. ~ Freeman Dyson #quote

Art consists of limitation. The most beautiful part of every picture is the frame. ~ G.K. Chesterton #quote

Anyone who has ever looked into the glazed eyes of a soldier dying on the battlefield will think hard before starting a war. ~ Otto von Bismarck #quote

A free press can, of course, be good or bad, but, most certainly without freedom, the press will never be anything but bad. ~ Albert Camus #quote
