If it's natural to kill why do men have to go into training to learn how?
You don't get to choose how you're going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you're going to live. Now.
Joan Baez, Folk singer
"An innocent man doesn't need 10 lawyers."

Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.
-Henry Ward Beecher
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep.
Saul Bellow, Nobel Prize winning author
When people go to work, they shouldn't have to leave their hearts at home.
Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.
Stephen Vincent Benét
Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly, as a splendid adventure in which you are setting out into an unknown country, to meet many a joy, to find many a comrade, to win and lose many a battle.

I am the taste in the water, the light of the sun and the moon, the sound in the ether, the ability in man, the fragrance of the earth, the heat in the fire, the life of all that lives, the strength of the strong, the intelligence of the intelligent, and the original seed of all existences.
God is seated in the hearts of all.
If you begin to live life looking for the God that is all around you, every moment becomes a prayer.
When a man says he approves of something in principle, it means he hasn't the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice.
Otto von Bismarck
The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way. Some see nature all ridicule and deformity...and some scarce see nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, nature is imagination itself.
Every choice carries a consequence. For better or worse, each choice is the unavoidable consequence of its predecessor. There are not exceptions. If you can accept that a bad choice carries the seed of its own punishment, why not accept the fact that a good choice yields desirable fruit?
Gary Ryan Blair
The willow knows what the storm does not: that the power to endure harm outlives the power to inflict it.
Blood of the Martyr
I have a great diet. You're allowed to eat anything you want, but you must eat it with naked fat people.
You are not thinking. You are merely being logical.
Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent.
Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.
If you do a good job for others, you heal yourself at the same time, because a dose of joy is a spiritual cure.
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-45)
The most effective way to achieve right relations with any living thing is to look for the best in it, and then help that best into the fullest expression.
Allen J. Boone
Any life, no matter how long and complex it may be, is made up of a single moment--the moment in which a man finds out, once and for all, who he is.
-Jorge Luis Borges,
Enthusiasm is the inspiration of everything great. Without it no man is to be feared, and with it none despised.
Christian Nestell Bovee
If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
Ray Bradbury, Science Fiction writer
Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.
General Omar Bradley
We can have democracy in this country, or we can have great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both.
Before I knew the best part of my life had come, it had gone.
Epitaph by Ashleigh Brilliant
The baby rises to its feet, takes a step, is overcome with triumph and joyand falls flat on its face. It is a pattern for all that is to come! But learn from the bewildered baby. Lurch to your feet again. You'll make the sofa in the end.
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're okay, then it's you.
-Rita Mae Brown
Morals are private. Decency is public.

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.
Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire Universe, deserve your love and affection.
Following the Noble Path is like entering a dark room with a light in the hand; the darkness will all be cleared away, and the room will be filled with light.
If you stop searching, you stop living, because then you're dwelling in the past. If you're not reaching forward to any growth or future, you might as well be dead.
