Henry L. Doherty: Get over...

Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.
/Henry L. Doherty/

Anna Quindlen: I read...

I read and walked for miles at night along the beach, writing bad blank verse and searching endlessly for someone wonderful who would step out of the darkness and change my life. It never crossed my mind that that person could be me.
/Anna Quindlen/

Victor Hugo: The supreme...

The supreme happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.
/Victor Hugo/

William S. Burroughs: Kerouac and...

Kerouac and I are not real at all. The only thing about a writer is that he has written, and not his so-called life. 'And we (will) all die and the stars will go out, one after another.'
/William S. Burroughs/

James A. Garfield: Territory is...

Territory is but the body of a nation. The people who inhabit its hills and valleys are its soul, its spirit, its life.

Bob Lemon: I've come...

I've come to the conclusion that the two most important things in life are good friends and a good bullpen.
/Bob Lemon/

Alan Cohen: It takes...

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
/Alan Cohen/

Marcus Aurelius: The object...

The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
/Marcus Aurelius/

Arthur Rimbaud: Idle youth,...

Idle youth, enslaved to everything; by being too sensitive I have wasted my life.
/Arthur Rimbaud/

Arthur Schopenhauer: If people...

If people insist that honor is dearer than life itself, what they really mean is that existence and well-being are as nothing compared with other people's opinions. Of course, this may be only an exaggerated way of stating the prosaic truth that reputation, that is, the opinion others have of us, is indispensable if we are to make any progress in the world.
/Arthur Schopenhauer/

Louis Armstrong: What we...

What we play is life.
/Louis Armstrong/

Dag Hammarskjöld: Life yields...

Life yields only to the conqueror. Never accept what can be gained by giving in. You will be living off stolen goods, and your muscles will atrophy.
/Dag Hammarskjöld/

Bill Watterson: A box...

A box of new crayons! Now they're all pointy, lined up in order, bright and perfect. Soon they'll be a bunch of ground down, rounded, indistinguishable stumps, missing their wrappers and smudged with other colors. Sometimes life seems unbearably tragic.
/Bill Watterson/
