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

27th November

I know I am God because when I pray to Him I find I'm talking to myself.

Peter Barnes

A good cause can become bad if we fight for it with means that are indiscriminatingly murderous. A bad cause can become good if enough people fight for it in a spirit of comradeship and self-sacrifice. In the end it is how you fight, as much as why you fight, that makes your cause good or bad.

Freeman Dyson

Nobody can think straight who does not work. Idleness warps the mind.

Henry Ford (1863-1947)

I think there is choice possible at any moment to us, as long as we live. But there is no sacrifice. There is a choice, and the rest falls away. Second choice does not exist. Beware of those who talk about sacrifice.

Muriel Rukeyser

The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807-1882)
