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

5th February

Written in 1935:

The policy of the Government is not to reduce the speed of motor cars (for that would be fantastic and fatal), but to increase the speed of pedestrians. It is hoped to educate the pedestrians to such a degree of alertness and alacrity that he will at last approximate to the hen.

A P Herbert

An honest man nearly always thinks justly.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778)

I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.

Abraham Lincoln

Liberty requires opportunity to make a living - a living decent according to the standard of the time, a living which gives a man not only enough to live by, but something to live for.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

It is worth the while to live respectably unto ourselves. We can possibly get along with a neighbor, even with a bedfellow, whom we respect but very little; but as soon as it comes to this, that we do not respect ourselves, then we do not get along at all...

Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
