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

14th July

Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.

William Jennings Bryan

It is more shameful to distrust one's friends than to be deceived by them.

Francois, Duc de la Rochefoucauld (1613-1680)

Every good act is charity. A man's true wealth hereafter is the good that he does in this world to his fellows.

Mohammed

Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.

Vaclav Havel

Listening to someone talk isn't at all like listening to their words played over on a machine. What you hear when you have a face before you is never what you hear when you have before you a winding tape.

Oriana Fallaci
