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

28th February

People wish their enemies dead - but I do not; I say give them the gout, give them the stone!

Lady Mary Wortley Montagu

Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.

Marcel Morin

Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

J C Watts

If I had permitted my failures, or what seemed to me at the time a lack of success, to discourage me I cannot see any way in which I would ever have made progress.

Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933), 30th US President

The grand principles of virtue and honor, however they may be distorted by arbitrary codes, are the same the world over: and where these principles are concerned, the right or wrong of any action appears the same to the uncultivated as to the enlightened mind.

Herman Melville (1819-1891)
