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

12th July

When I tell the truth, it is not for the sake of convincing those who do not know it, but for the sake of defending those that do.

William Blake

We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another.

Jonathan Swift (1667-1745), satirist

I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not on our circumstances.

Martha Washington (1731-1802), US First Lady

A leaf that is supposed to grow is full of wrinkles and creases before it develops; if one doesn't have the patience and wants the leaf to be as smooth as a willow leaf from the start, then there is a problem.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832)

Never be afraid to try something new. Remember: An amateur built the Ark--professionals built the Titanic.
