The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
He uses statistics as a drunken man uses lamp posts – for support rather than illumination."
They can't censor the gleam in my eye.
Charles Laughton, Actor
All people dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the morning to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous people, for they dream their dreams with open eyes, and make them come true.
T.E. Lawrence (AKA "
All men dream, but unequally. Those that dream at night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake the next day to find that their dreams were just vanity. But those who dream during the day with their eyes wide open are dangerous men; they act out their dreams to make them reality.
-Thomas Edward Lawrence (
Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.
I'm not into working out. My philosophy: No pain, no pain.
Religion is the opium of the people.
We cannot emerge without rapid perilism
I went into a McDonald's yesterday and said, "I'd like some fries." The girl at the counter said, "Would you like fries with that?"
The game of life is not so much in holding a good hand as playing a poor hand well.

God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.
C. S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain
It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have few virtues.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help small men by tearing down big men. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income. You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatreds. You cannot build character and courage by taking away a man's initiative and independence. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.
Die when I may, I want it said by those who knew me best that I always plucked a thistle and planted a flower where I thought a flower would grow.
Abraham Lincoln, 16th
Those who suppress freedom always do so in the name of law and order.
John V. Lindsay
In difficult situations when hope seems feeble, the boldest plans are the safest.
It is time for all of us to cheer for the doer, the achiever- the one who recognizes the challenge and does something about it.
Lives of great men all remind us, We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us. Footprints on the sands of time.
Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.
Every now and again take a good look at something not made with hands, a mountain, a star, the turn of a stream. There will come to you wisdom and patience and solace and, above all, the assurance that you are not alone in the world.
Let us be of good cheer, remembering that the misfortunes hardest to bear are those which will never happen.
James Russel Lowell
One of the greatest joys known to man is to take a flight into ignorance in search of knowledge.
