Wisdom from the greatest voices of reason who are, or have ever been, in our world

11th August

It's a shame that the only thing a man can do for eight hours a day is work. He can't eat for eight hours; he can't drink for eight hours; he can't make love for eight hours. The only thing a man can do for eight hours is work."

William Faulkner

Whatever we possess becomes of double value when we have the opportunity of sharing it with others.

Jean-Nicolas Bouilly

The fact is we can only love what we know personally. And we cannot know much. In public affairs, in the rebuilding of civilization, something less dramatic and emotional is needed, namely tolerance.

E. M. Forster

If you wish, wish for more.

Arabic proverb

God's promises are like the stars; the darker the night the brighter they shine.
