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

5th December

It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous."

Robert Benchley

So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable.

Christopher Reeve

When two are of one mind, their strength can cut gold.

Chinese proverb

Integrity has no need of rules.

Albert Camus

The moment of truth, the sudden emergence of a new insight, is an act of intuition. Such intuitions give the appearance of miraculous flushes, or short-circuits of reasoning. In fact they may be likened to an immersed chain, of which only the beginning and the end are visible above the surface of consciousness. The diver vanishes at one end of the chain and comes up at the other end, guided by invisible links.

Arthur Koestler
