Since he has evil desire, does not listen to his own conscience nor pay attention to the doctrine, he will have to face sin and thereby enter the lower plane of existence.
Real compassion does not arise from an over-emotional gut blocking the brain, but from a clean clear mind melting into the heart.
To die will be an awfully big adventure.
—J. M. Barrie
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers. It may not be difficult to store up in the mind a vast quantity of facts within a comparatively short time, but the ability to form judgments requires the severe discipline of hard work and the tempering heat of experience and maturity.
—Alfred, Lord Tennyson
The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
—G. K. Chesterton
Do your best every day and your life will gradually expand into satisfying fullness.
If there was nothing wrong in the world there wouldn’t be anything for us to do.
—George Bernard Shaw
Science and art are only too often a superior kind of dope, possessing this advantage over booze and morphia: that they can be indulged in with a good conscience and with the conviction that, in the process of indulging, one is leading the “higher life.”
Science is a first-rate piece of furniture for a man’s upper chamber, if it has common sense on the ground floor.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
A fool, misled by his own folly, is often burnt by his own anger because of his showing off with malicious intention.
The secret of success in society is a certain heartiness and sympathy. A man who is not happy in company, cannot find any word in his memory that will fit the occasion; all his information is a little impertinent. A man who is happy there, finds in every turn of the conversation occasions for the introduction of what he has to say. The favorites of society are able men, and of more spirit than wit, who have no uncomfortable egotism, but who exactly fill the hour and the company, contented and contenting.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
It is dangerous to be sincere unless you are also stupid.
—George Bernard Shaw
A new and valid idea is worth more than a regiment and fewer men can furnish the former than command the latter.
—Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
