The health of the people is really the foundation upon which all their happiness and all their powers as a state depend.
—Benjamin Disraeli (British Head of State)
Service can have no meaning unless one takes pleasure in it. When it is done for show or for fear of public opinion it stunts the man and crushes his spirit. Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
—Mohandas K. Gandhi (Indian Hindu Political leader)
Logic pervades the world; the limits of the world are also the limits of logic.
—Ludwig Wittgenstein (Austrian Philosopher)
The unfortunate thing about this world is that good habits are so much easier to give up than bad ones.
—W. Somerset Maugham (French Playwright)
Men of lofty genius when they are doing the least work are most active.
—Leonardo da Vinci (Italian Polymath)
From a little spark may burst a mighty flame.
—Dante Alighieri (Italian Political leader)
Status quo, you know, that is Latin for the mess we’re in.
—Ronald Reagan (American Head of State)
I have learned silence from the talkative; tolerance from the intolerant and kindness from the unkind. I should not be ungrateful to those teachers.
—Khalil Gibran (Lebanese-born American Philosopher)
