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

7th November

In the arts, the critic is the only independent source of information. The rest is advertising.

Pauline Kael

Now the alternative to despair is courage. And human life can be viewed as a continuous struggle between these two options. Courage is the capacity to affirm one's life in spite of the elements which threaten it. The fact that courage usually predominates over despair in itself tells us something important about life. It tells you that the forces that affirm life are stronger than those that negate it.

Paul E Pfuetze

Fear grows out of the things we think; it lives in our minds. Compassion grows out of the things we are, and lives in our hearts.

Barbara Garrison

The trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit.

Moliere

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

George Bernard Shaw
