                        The Bible reveals much about this principle. It seems that God always refers back to
                        the beginning of a thing as a point of reference for His will down the road, be it the
                        events of men or nations.

160     Bold          Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always                         6    1960
                      ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one
                      elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that
                      the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of
                      things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of
                      events issues from the decision, raising in one‘s favor all manner of unforeseen
                      incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt
                      would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe‘s
                      couplets: "Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius,
                      power, and magic in it." - W. H. Murray (late mountain climber)


160     Bold          The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the                  6    1960
                      impossible. - Arthur C. Clarke
160     Bold          When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your                  6
                      thoughts break their bounds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness
                      expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world.
                      Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a
                      greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be. – Patanjali

160     Creative      Your imagination is your preview of life‘s coming attractions. - Albert Einstein                   6    1950       Au

160     Doing         No more prizes for predicting rain. Prizes only for building arks. -- Louis Gerstner               6    1990       Au

160     Effort        "Any man's life will be filled with constant and unexpected encouragement if he makes              6    1850       Au
                      up his mind to do his level best each day." --Booker T. Washington
160     Effort        "Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win great triumphs, even though checkered by           6    1910       Au
                      failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much,
                      because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat." --Theodore
                      Roosevelt
160     Initiative    Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to                  6    1600       Ne

                      everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made
                      known to God." (Philippians 4:6)
170     Parents       "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." --Thomas            6    1776       Au

170     Service       This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty          6    1920       Ne
                      one: being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and
                      grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am
                      of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my
                      privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the
                      harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no ‗brief candle‘ to
                      me. It is a sort of splendid torch that I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to
                      make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations. -
                      George Bernard Shaw

                    A state is not a mere society, having a common place, established for the prevention
                    of mutual crime and for the sake of exchange...Political society exists for the sake of

                    Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives

                    One is tempted to define man as a rational animal who always loses his temper when

                    You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean

                    The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come.
                    When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin. When all is
                    orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus his person is not
                    endangered, and his States and all their clans are preserved. -- Confucius

                    To see what is right, and not to do it, is want of courage or of principle. -- Confucius

                    He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north

                    I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of
                    antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                    I have not seen a person who loved virtue, or one who hated what was not virtuous.
                    He who loved virtue would esteem nothing above it. -- Confucius, The Confucian

                    If a man withdraws his mind from the love of beauty, and applies it as sincerely to the
                    love of the virtuous; if, in serving his parents, he can exert his utmost strength; if, in
                    serving his prince, he can devote his life; if in his intercourse with his friends, his words
                    are sincere - although men say that he has not learned, I will certainly say that he has. -
                    - Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                    The man of virtue makes the difficulty to be overcome his first business, and success
                    only a subsequent consideration. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                    The man who in view of gain thinks of righteousness; who in the view of danger is
                    prepared to give up his life; and who does not forget an old agreement however far

                    Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                    The superior man cannot be known in little matters, but he may be entrusted with great
                    concerns. The small man may not be entrusted with great concerns, but he may be
                    known in little matters. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                    The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions. -- Confucius,

                    The superior man is satisfied and composed; the mean man is always full of distress. --
                    Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                    The superior man...does not set his mind either for anything, or against anything; what
                    is right he will follow. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                    There are three things which the superior man guards against. In youth...lust. When he
                    is strong...quarrelsomeness. When he is old...covetousness. -- Confucius, The

                    To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                    Virtue is more to man than either water or fire. I have seen men die from treading on
                    water and fire, but I have never seen a man die from treading the course of virtue. --

                    Confucian Analects
                    When we see men of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see men of a
                    contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves. -- Confucius, The
                    Confucian Analects
                    When you know a thing, to hold that you know it; and when you do not know a thing, to
                    allow that you do not know it - this is knowledge. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                    With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still

                    If a man will begin with certainties, he shall end in doubts; but if he will be content to

                    In taking revenge, a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over, he is

                    Read not to contradict and confute, not to believe and take for granted, not to find talk

                    Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some few to be chewed and
                    digested: that is, some books are to be read only in parts, others to be read, but not
                    curiously, and some few to be read wholly, and with diligence and attention. -- Sir
                    Francis Bacon

                    A happy life consists in tranquillity of mind. -- Cicero 70 BC - Roman
                    A life of peace, purity, and refinement leads to a calm and untroubled old age. --
                    Cicero
                    A mind without instruction can no more bear fruit than can a field, however fertile,
                    without cultivation. -- Cicero
                    Advice is judged by results, not by intentions. -- Cicero
                    All action is of the mind and the mirror of the mind is the face, its index the eyes. --
                    Cicero
                    Art is born of the observation and investigation of nature. -- Cicero
                    As the old proverb says "Like readily consorts with like." -- Cicero
                    Be sure that it is not you that is mortal, but only your body. For that man whom your
                    outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure
                    which and be pointed out by your finger. -- Cicero
                    Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must
                    also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might
                    suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him. --
                    Cicero
                    Force overcome by force. (Vi Victa Vis) -- Cicero

                    He only employs his passion who can make no use of his reason. -- Cicero
                    He removes the greatest ornament of friendship, who takes away from it respect. --
                    Cicero
                    I will go further, and assert that nature without culture can often do more to deserve
                    praise than culture without nature. -- Cicero
                    If you aspire to the highest place, it is no disgrace to stop at the second, or even the
                    third, place. -- Cicero
                    In so far as the mind is stronger than the body, so are the ills contracted by the mind
                    more severe than those contracted by the body. -- Cicero
                    It is a great thing to know our vices. -- Cicero
                    It is a true saying that "One falsehood leads easily to another". -- Cicero
                    Let your desires be ruled by reason. (Appetitus Rationi Pareat) -- Cicero
                    Liberty is rendered even more precious by the recollection of servitude. -- Cicero

                    Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts. – Cicero

                    Men decide far more problems by hate, love, lust, rage, sorrow, joy, hope, fear,
                    illusion, or some other inward emotion, than by reality, authority, any legal standard,
                    judicial precedent, or statute. -- Cicero
                    Natural ability without education has more often attained to glory and virtue than
                    education without natural ability. – Cicero
                    Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide. -- Cicero
                    No one can speak well, unless he thoroughly understands his subject. -- Cicero

                    Not to know what has been transacted in former times is to be always a child. If no use
                    is made of the labors of past ages, the world must remain always in the infancy of
                    knowledge. -- Cicero
                    Our span of life is brief, but is long enough for us to live well and honestly. -- Cicero

                    Our thoughts are free. -- Cicero
                    Reason should direct and appetite obey. -- Cicero

                    Such praise coming from so degraded a source, was degrading to me, its recipient. --
                    Cicero
                    The absolute good is not a matter of opinion but of nature. -- Cicero
                    The evil implanted in man by nature spreads so imperceptibly, when the habit of wrong-
                    doing is unchecked, that he himself can set no limit to his shamelessness. -- Cicero

                    The first duty of a man is the seeking after and the investigation of truth. -- Cicero

                    The man who backbites an absent friend, nay, who does not stand up for him when
                    another blames him, the man who angles for bursts of laughter and for the repute of a
                    wit, who can invent what he never saw, who cannot keep a secret - that man is black at
                    heart: mark and avoid him. -- Cicero
                    The name of peace is sweet, and the thing itself is beneficial, but there is a great
                    difference between peace and servitude. Peace is freedom in tranquillity, servitude is
                    the worst of all evils, to be resisted not only by war, but even by death.-- Cicero

                    The strictest law often causes the most serious wrong. – Cicero
                    The welfare of the people is the ultimate law. (Salus Populi Suprema Est Lex) – Cicero

                    The wise are instructed by reason; ordinary minds by experience; the stupid, by
                    necessity; and brutes by instinct. -- Cicero
                    There are some duties we owe even to those who have wronged us. There is, after all,
                    a limit to retribution and punishment. -- Cicero
                    There is no duty more obligatory than the repayment of kindness. – Cicero
                    To be content with what one has is the greatest and truest of riches. -- Cicero
                    To each his own. (Suum Cuique) -- Cicero
                    We are obliged to respect, defend and maintain the common bonds of union and
                    fellowship that exist among all members of the human race. -- Cicero
                    We do not destroy religion by destroying superstition. -- Cicero
                    We must not say every mistake is a foolish one. -- Cicero
                    When you wish to instruct, be brief; that men's minds take in quickly what you say,
                    learn its lesson, and retain it faithfully. Every word that is unnecessary only pours over
                    the side of a brimming mind. -- Cicero

                    Law stands mute in the midst of arms. -- Cicero, Pro Milone
                    History is the witness that testifies to the passing of time; it illumines reality, vitalizes
                    memory, provides guidance in daily life and brings us tidings of antiquity. -- Cicero, Pro

                    As a general rule the most successful man in life is the man who has the best
                    information. -- Benjamin Disraeli
                    Cleanliness and order are not matters of instinct; they are matters of education, and
                    like most great things, you must cultivate a taste for them. -- Benjamin Disraeli

                    Great services are not canceled by one act or by one single error. -- Benjamin Disraeli

                    Grief is the agony of an instant, the indulgence of grief the blunder of a life. --
                    Benjamin Disraeli
                    I repeat...that all power is a trust; that we are accountable for its exercise; that from the
                    people, and for the people all springs, and all must exist. -- Benjamin Disraeli

                    It is knowledge that influences and equalizes the social condition of man; that gives to
                    all, however different their political position, passions which are in common, and
                    enjoyments which are universal. -- Benjamin Disraeli
                    My idea of an agreeable person is a person who agrees with me. -- Benjamin Disraeli

                    Benjamin Disraeli
                    The difference of race is one of the reasons why I fear war may always exist; because
                    race implies difference, difference implies superiority, and superiority leads to
                    predominance. -- Benjamin Disraeli
                    The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to

                    I have found power in the mysteries of thought, exaltation in the changing of the

                    Say nothing of my religion. It is known to God and myself alone. Its evidence before
                    the world is to be sought in my life: if it has been honest and dutiful to society the
                    religion which has regulated it cannot be a bad one. -- Thomas Jefferson

                    Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely
                    crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every
                    opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one,
                    he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear. --
                    Thomas Jefferson
                    The man who reads nothing at all is better educated than the man who reads nothing
                    but newspapers. -- Thomas Jefferson
                    We confide in our strength, without boasting of it; we respect that of others, without
                    fearing it. -- Thomas Jefferson
                    An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens. --

                    Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and
                    suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved. --
                    Helen Keller
                    College isn't the place to go for ideas. -- Helen Keller
                    Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do
                    the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long
                    run than exposure. -- Helen Keller
                    Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained
                    through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose. -- Helen Keller

                    One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar. -- Helen Keller

                    People do not like to think. If one thinks, one must reach conclusions. Conclusions are
                    not always pleasant. -- Helen Keller
                    Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything good in the
                    world. -- Helen Keller
                    The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They
                    must be felt within the heart. -- Helen Keller 1940
                    We could never learn to be brave and patient, if there were only joy in the world. --
                    Helen Keller
                    When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the
                    closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. -- Helen Keller

                    The highest result of education is tolerance. -- Helen Keller, 'Optimism,' 1903
                    Science may have found a cure for most evils; but it has found no remedy for the worst
                    of them all - the apathy of human beings. -- Helen Keller, My Religion, 1927

                    Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature.... Life is either a daring
                    adventure or nothing. -- Helen Keller, The Open Door (1957)
                    I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and
                    who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of
                    the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law. -
                    - Martin Luther King Jr. 1960
                    In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our
                    friends. -- Martin Luther King Jr.
                    Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity.
                    Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe
                    the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false
                    and the false with the true. -- Martin Luther King Jr.
                    Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. -- Martin
                    Luther King Jr.
                    When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too
                    conservative. -- Martin Luther King Jr.
                    The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are
                    dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood. -- Martin Luther King Jr., "Strength to
                    Love"
                    I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.
                    That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant. -- Martin
                    Luther King Jr., Accepting Nobel Peace Price, Dec. 10, 1964
                    Nonviolence is the answer to the crucial political and moral questions of our time; the
                    need for mankind to overcome oppression and violence without resorting to
                    oppression and violence. Mankind must evolve for all human conflict a method which
                    rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. --
                    Martin Luther King Jr., December 11, 1964
                    Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. -- Martin Luther King Jr., Letter
                    from Birmingham Jail, April 16, 1963
                    I submit to you that if a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to
                    live. -- Martin Luther King Jr., Speech in Detroit, June 23, 1963
                    Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious
                    stupidity. -- Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963
                    Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and
                    misguided men. -- Martin Luther King Jr., Strength to Love, 1963
                    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and
                    convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. -- Martin

                    A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step. -- Lao-tzu, The

                    I have three treasures. Guard and keep them: The first is deep love, The
                    second is frugality, And the third is not to dare to be ahead of the world.
                    Because of deep love, one is courageous. Because of frugality, one is
                    generous. Because of not daring to be ahead of the world, one becomes the
                    leader of the world. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu

                    tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                    The best [man] is like water. Water is good; it benefits all things and does not
                    compete with them. It dwells in [lowly] places that all disdain. This is why it is
                    so near to Tao. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                    The more laws and order are made prominent, The more thieves and robbers
                    there will be. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                    The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.
                    Through this I know the advantage of taking no action. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of
                    Lao-tzu
                    The Way of Heaven is to benefit others and not to injure. The Way of the
                    sage is to act but not to compete. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                    There is no calamity greater than lavish desires. There is no greater guilt than
                    discontentment. And there is not greater disaster than greed. -- Lao-tzu, The

                    To be worn out is to be renewed. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                    To have little is to possess. To have plenty is to be perplexed. -- Lao-tzu, The
                    Way of Lao-tzu
                    To know that you do not know is the best. To pretend to know when you do
                    not know is a disease. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                    To produce things and to rear them, To produce, but not to take possession
                    of them, To act, but not to rely on one's own ability, To lead them, but not to
                    master them - This is called profound and secret virtue. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of

                    When the highest type of men hear Tao, They diligently practice it. When the

                    of men hear Tao, They laugh heartily at it. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu

                    Few are agreeable in conversation, because each thinks more of what he

                    Our repentance is not so much regret for the ill we have done as fear of the ill

                    All art is an imitation of nature. -- Seneca Rome 50
                    Be not too hasty either with praise or blame; speak always as though you

                    judgment. -- Seneca
                    Dangerous is wrath concealed. Hatred proclaimed doth lose its chance of
                    wreaking vengeance. -- Seneca
                    Delay not; swift the flight of fortune's greatest favours. -- Seneca

                    He will live ill who does not know how to die well. -- Seneca

                    It is a denial of justice not to stretch out a helping hand to the fallen; that is the

                    It is a youthful failing to be unable to control one's impulses. -- Seneca
                    It is easier to exclude harmful passions than to rule them, and to deny them
                    admittance than to control them after they have been admitted. -- Seneca

                    It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do

                    Where reason fails, time oft has worked a cure. -- Seneca
                    Where the speech is corrupted, the mind is also. -- Seneca
                    While the fates permit, live happily; life speeds on with hurried step, and with
                    winged days the wheel of the headlong year is turned. -- Seneca
                    Without an adversary prowess shrivels. We see how great and efficient it
                    really is only when it shows by endurance what it is capable of. -- Seneca
                    He who boasts of his ancestry is praising the deeds of another. -- Seneca,

                    - Seneca, Epistles
                    Men do not care how nobly they live, but only how long, although it is within
                    the reach of every man to live nobly, but within no man's power to live long. --

                    The spirit in which a thing is given determines that in which the debt is
                    acknowledged; it's the intention, not the face-value of the gift, that's weighed. --

                    Nothing is as certain as that the vices of leisure are gotten rid of by being
                    busy. -- Seneca, Moral Letters to Lucilius, 64 A.D.
                    And thus I clothe my naked villainy | With old odd ends, stol'n forth of holy writ;
                    | And seem a saint, when most I play the devil. -- William Shakespeare

                    Glory is like a circle in the water, | Which never ceaseth to enlarge itself, | Till

                    A fashion is nothing but an induced epidemic. -- George Bernard Shaw 1940

                    A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art
                    into pedantry. Hence University education. -- George Bernard Shaw
                    A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than
                    a life spent doing nothing. -- George Bernard Shaw

                    You are going to let the fear of poverty govern your life and your reward will be
                    that you will eat, but you will not live. -- George Bernard Shaw
                    People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't
                    believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people
                    who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find
                    them, make them. -- George Bernard Shaw, "Mrs. Warren's Profession"

                    The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be

                    Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by

                    Do not do to others what angers you if done to you by others. -- Socrates
                    Envy is the ulcer of the soul. -- Socrates
                    Remember that there is nothing stable in human affairs; therefore avoid undue
                    elation in prosperity, or undue depression in adversity. -- Socrates
                    Remember what is unbecoming to do is also unbecoming to speak of. --
                    Socrates
                    The shortest and surest way to live with honour in the world, is to be in reality
                    what we would appear to be; and if we observe, we shall find, that all human
                    virtues increase and strengthen themselves by the practice of them. --
                    Socrates
                    Think not those faithful who praise all thy words and actions; but those who
                    kindly reprove thy faults. -- Socrates
                    Thou shouldst eat to live; not live to eat. -- Socrates
                    Having the fewest wants, I am nearest to the gods. -- Socrates, from Diogenes
                    Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers
                    I know nothing except the fact of my ignorance. -- Socrates, from Diogenes
                    Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers
                    There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance. -- Socrates, from
                    Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers
                    I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world. -- Socrates, from
                    Plutarch, Of Banishment
                    I do nothing but go about persuading you all, old and young alike, not to take
                    thought for your persons or your properties, but and chiefly to care about the
                    greatest improvement of the soul. I tell you that virtue is not given by money,
                    but that from virtue comes money and every other good of man, public as well
                    as private. This is my teaching, and if this is the doctrine which corrupts the
                    youth, I am a mischievous person. -- Socrates, quoted by Plato, 'The Death of
                    Socrates'
                    Ignorant men don't know what good they hold in their hands until they've flung
                    it away. -- Sophocles 450 BC
                    Much speech is one thing, well-timed speech is another. -- Sophocles
                    What you cannot enforce, do not command. -- Sophocles
                    No man loves life like him that's growing old. -- Sophocles, Acrisius
                    To him who is in fear everything rustles. -- Sophocles, Acrisius
                    Men of ill judgment oft ignore the good | That lies within their hands, till they
                    have lost it. -- Sophocles, Ajax
                    Of all human ills, greatest is fortune's wayward tyranny. -- Sophocles, Ajax

                    For God hates utterly | The bray of bragging tongues. -- Sophocles, Antigone

                    Grief teaches the steadiest minds to waver. -- Sophocles, Antigone
                    How dreadful it is when the right judge judges wrong! -- Sophocles, Antigone

                    I have nothing but contempt for the kind of governor who is afraid, for
                    whatever reason, to follow the course that he knows is best for the State; and
                    as for the man who sets private friendship above the public welfare - I have no
                    use for him either. -- Sophocles, Antigone

                    Nobody likes the man who brings bad news. -- Sophocles, Antigone

                    Sophocles, Antigone
                    The ideal condition | Would be, I admit, that men should be right by instinct; |
                    But since we are all likely to go astray, | The reasonable thing is to learn from
                    those who can teach. -- Sophocles, Antigone
                    There is no happiness where there is no wisdom; | No wisdom but in
                    submission to the gods.
                    Big words are always punished, | And proud men in old age learn to be wise. --
                    Sophocles, Antigone
                    Wisdom outweighs any wealth. -- Sophocles, Antigone
                    One word | Frees us of all the weight and pain of life: | That word is love. --

                    A prudent mind can see room for misgiving, lest he who prospers would one
                    day suffer reverse. -- Sophocles, Trachiniae
                    Knowledge must come through action; you can have no test which is not
                    fanciful, save by trial. -- Sophocles, Trachiniae
                    Rash indeed is he who reckons on the morrow, or haply on days beyond it; for
                    tomorrow is not, until today is past. -- Sophocles, Trachiniae

                    I bid him look into the lives of men as though into a mirror, and from others to

                    If you do not wish to be prone to anger, do not feed the habit; give it nothing which may
                    tend to its increase. -- Epictetus
                    If you would cure anger, do not feed it. Say to yourself: 'I used to be angry every day;
                    then every other day; now only every third or fourth day.' When you reach thirty days
                    offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the gods. -- Epictetus
                    Know, first, who you are; and then adorn yourself accordingly. -- Epictetus

                    Epictetus
                    The good or ill of a man lies within his own will. -- Epictetus
                    Only the educated are free. -- Epictetus, Discourses
                    What is the first business of one who practices philosophy? To get rid of self-conceit.
                    For it is impossible for anyone to begin to learn that which he thinks he already knows. -
                    - Epictetus, Discourses
                    When you close your doors, and make darkness within, remember never to say that
                    you are alone, for you are not alone; nay, God is within, and your genius is within. And
                    what need have they of light to see what you are doing? -- Epictetus, Discourses

                    Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you
                    now have was once among the things only hoped for. -- Epicurus 300 BC

                    Justice is a contract of expediency, entered upon to prevent men harming or being

                    Epicurus, 300 B.C.
                    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has

                    Better fare hard with good men than feast it with bad. -- Thomas Paine 1770
                    Such is the irresistible nature of truth that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of
                    appearing. -- Thomas Paine
                    The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by

                    When we are planning for posterity, we ought to remember that virtue is not hereditary.
                    -- Thomas Paine
                    A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is
                    always a virtue, but moderation in principle is always a vice. -- Thomas Paine, "The
                    Rights of Man", 1792
                    Clarity of mind means clarity of passion, too; this is why a great and clear mind loves
                    ardently and sees distinctly what it loves. -- Blaise Pascal 1650, Fr

                    Man is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness from which he emerges and the
                    infinity in which he is engulfed. -- Blaise Pascal
                    Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from a religious
                    conviction. -- Blaise Pascal
                    One must know oneself, if this does not serve to discover truth, it at least serves as a
                    rule of life and there is nothing better. -- Blaise Pascal
                    Since we cannot know all that there is to be known about anything, we ought to know a
                    little about everything. -- Blaise Pascal
                    The eternal silence of these infinite spaces fills me with dread. -- Blaise Pascal

                    The heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing of. -- Blaise Pascal
                    We are generally the better persuaded by the reasons we discover ourselves than by
                    those given to us by others. -- Blaise Pascal
                    We arrive at the truth, not by the reason only, but also by the heart. -- Blaise Pascal

                    Plutarch, 'Morals,' 100 A.D.
                    Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be

                    It is better wither to be silent, or to say things of more value than silence. Sooner throw
                    a pearl at hazard than an idle or useless word; and do not say a little in many words,
                    but a great deal in a few. -- Pythagoras

                    An education isn't how much you have committed to memory, or even how much you
                    know. It's being able to differentiate between what you do know and what you don't. --

                    Education... has produced a vast population able to read but unable to distinguish
                    what is worth reading. -- G. M. Trevelyan (1876 - 1962), English Social History (1942)

                    I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to

                    Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your

                    Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the
                    thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first
                    lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is
                    probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. -- Thomas H. Huxley (1825 - 1895)

                    Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance. -- Will Durant (1885 -

                    The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death,
                    a road either to safety or to ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on
                    no account be neglected. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem
                    unable; when using our forces, we must seem inactive; when we are near, we
                    must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make
                    him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder,
                    and crush him. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior
                    strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him.
                    Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give
                    him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject
                    are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared,
                    appear where you are not expected. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    "The art of using troops is this:
                    ......When ten to the enemy's one, surround him;
                    ......When five times his strength, attack him;
                    ......If double his strength, divide him;
                    ......If equally matched you may engage him;
                    ......If weaker numerically, be capable of withdrawing;
                    ......And if in all respects unequal, be capable of eluding him,
                    ..........for a small force is but booty for one more powerful."
                    - Sun Tzu, the Art Of War
                    "Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the
                    deepest valleys.
                    Look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto
                    death!" -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    The general who wins a battle makes many calculations in his temple ere the
                    battle is fought. The general who loses a battle makes but few calculations
                    beforehand. Thus do many calculations lead to victory, and few calculations to
                    defeat: how much more no calculation at all! It is by attention to this point that I
                    can foresee who is likely to w in or lose. --Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    He who wishes to fight must first count the cost. When you engage in actual
                    fighting, if victory is long in coming, then men's weapons will grow dull and
                    their ardor will be dampened. If you lay siege to a town, you will exhaust your
                    strength. Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will
                    not be equal to the strain. Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor
                    dampened, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains
                    will spring up to take advantage of your extremity. Then no man, however
                    wise, will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue... In war, then,
                    let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns. -- -Sun Tzu, the Art of
                    War
                    Though we have heard of stupid haste in war, cleverness has never been
                    seen associated with long delays. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can
                    thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on. -- -Sun Tzu, the Art
                    of War

                    Bring war material with you from home, but forage on the enemy... use the
                    conquered foe to augment one's own strength. -- -Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country
                    whole and intact; to shatter and destroy it is not so good. So, too, it is better to
                    recapture an army entire than to destroy it. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    To fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme
                    excellence consists in breaking the enemy's resistance without fighting. -- Sun
                    Tzu, the Art of War
                    Thus the highest form of generalship is to balk the enemy's plans, the next
                    best is to prevent the junction of the enemy's forces, the next in order is to
                    attack the enemy's army in the field, and the worst policy of all is to besiege
                    walled cities. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    There are three ways in which a ruler can bring misfortune upon his army: By
                    commanding the army to advance or to retreat, being ignorant of the fact that
                    it cannot obey; This is called hobbling the army. By attempting to govern an
                    army in the same way as he administers a kingdom, being ignorant of the
                    conditions which obtain in an army; This causes restlessness in the soldier's
                    minds. By employing the officers of his army without discrimination, through
                    ignorance of the military principle of adaptation to circumstances. This shakes
                    the confidence of the soldiers. -- -Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight. He will win who
                    knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces. He will win whose army
                    is animated by the same spirit throughout all its ranks. He will win who,
                    prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared. He will win who has
                    military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign. --Sun Tzu, the Art
                    of War
                    If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a
                    hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory
                    gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor
                    yourself, you will succumb in every battle. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat,
                    and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy. To secure
                    ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of
                    defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself. Thus the good fighter
                    is able to secure himself against defeat, but cannot make certain of defeating
                    the enemy. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    The victorious strategist only seeks battle after the victory has been won,
                    whereas he who is destined to defeat first fights and afterwards looks for
                    victory. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Fighting with a large army under your command is nowise different from
                    fighting with a small one: it is merely a question of instituting signs and
                    signals. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    In all fighting, the direct method may be used for joining battle, but indirect
                    methods will be needed in order to secure victory. In battle, there are not more
                    than two methods of attack - the direct and the indirect; yet these two in
                    combination give rise to an endless series of maneuvers. The direct and the
                    indirect lead on to each other in turn. It is like moving in a circle - you never
                    come to an end. Who can exhaust the possibilities of their combination? --
                    Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Whoever is first in the field and awaits the coming of the enemy, will be fresh
                    for the fight; whoever is second in the field and has to hasten to battle will
                    arrive exhausted. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    An army may march great distances without distress, if it marches through
                    country where the enemy is not. You can be sure of succeeding in your
                    attacks if you only attack places which are undefended. You can ensure the
                    safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked. --
                    Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    If we wish to fight, the enemy can be forced to an engagement even though
                    he be sheltered behind a high rampart and a deep ditch. All we need do is
                    attack some other place that he will be obliged to relieve. If we do not wish to
                    fight, we can prevent the enemy from engaging us even though the lines of
                    our encampment be merely traced out on the ground. All we need do is to
                    throw something odd and unaccountable in his way. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Should the enemy strengthen his van, he will weaken his rear; should he
                    strengthen his rear, he will weaken his van; should he strengthen his left, he
                    will weaken his right; should he strengthen his right, he will weaken his left. If
                    he sends reinforcements everywhere, he will everywhere be weak. -- Sun Tzu,
                    the Art of War
                    In making tactical dispositions, the highest pitch you can attain is to conceal
                    them. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    Military tactics are like unto water; for water in its natural course runs away
                    from high places and hastens downwards... Water shapes its course
                    according to the nature of the ground over which it flows; the soldier works out
                    his victory in relation to the foe whom he is facing. Therefore, just as water
                    retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions. He
                    who can modify his tactics in relation to his opponent and thereby succeed in
                    winning, may be called a heaven-born captain. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong and to strike at what is weak. --
                    Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    The difficulty of tactical maneuvering consists in turning the devious into the
                    direct, and misfortune into gain. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Maneuvering with an army is advantageous; with an undisciplined multitude,
                    most dangerous. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    We cannot enter into alliances until we are acquainted with the designs of our
                    neighbors. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Do not interfere with an army that is returning home. When you surround an
                    army, leave an outlet free. Do not press a desperate foe too hard. -- Sun Tzu,
                    the Art of War
                    The art of war teaches us to rely not on the likelihood of the enemy's not
                    coming, but on our own readiness to receive him; not on the chance of his not
                    attacking, but rather on the fact that we have made our position unassailable. -
                    - Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    When the common soldiers are too strong and their officers too weak, the
                    result is INSUBORDINATION. When the officers are too strong and the
                    common soldiers too weak, the result is COLLAPSE. When the higher officers
                    are angry and insubordinate, and on meeting the enemy give battle on their
                    own account from a feeling of resentment, before the commander-in-chief can
                    tell whether or no he is in a position to fight, the result is RUIN. -- Sun Tzu, the
                    Art of War

                    The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing
                    disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for
                    his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest
                    valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you
                    even unto death. If, however, you are indulgent, but unable to make your
                    authority felt; kind-hearted, but unable to enforce your commands; and
                    incapable, moreover, of quelling disorder: then your soldiers must be likened
                    to spoilt children; they are useless for any practical purpose. -- Sun Tzu, the

                    If we know that our own men are in a condition to attack, but are unaware that
                    the enemy is not open to attack, we have gone only halfway towards victory. If
                    we know that the enemy is open to attack, but are unaware that our own men
                    are not in a condition to attack, we have gone only halfway towards victory. If
                    we know that the enemy is open to attack, and also know that our men are in
                    a condition to attack, but are unaware that the nature of the ground makes
                    fighting impracticable, we have still gone only halfway towards victory. -- Sun
                    Tzu, the Art of War
                    If you know the enemy and know yourself, your victory will not stand in doubt;
                    if you know Heaven and know Earth, you may make your victory complete. --
                    Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    On dispersive ground, therefore, fight not. On facile ground, halt not. On
                    contentious ground, attack not. On open ground, do not try to block the
                    enemy's way. On the ground of intersecting highways, join hands with your
                    allies. On serious ground, gather in plunder. In difficult ground, keep steadily
                    on the march. On hemmed-in ground, resort to stratagem. On desperate
                    ground, fight. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    If asked how to cope with a great host of the enemy in orderly array and on
                    the point of marching to the attack, I should say: "Begin by seizing something
                    which your opponent holds dear; then he will be amenable to your will."
                    Rapidity is the essence of war: take advantage of the enemy's unreadiness,
                    make your way by unexpected routes, and attack unguarded spots. -- Sun
                    Tzu, the Art of War
                    Throw your soldiers into positions whence there is no escape, and they will
                    prefer death to flight. If they will face death, there is nothing they may not
                    achieve. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Bestow rewards without regard to rule, issue orders without regard to previous
                    arrangements; and you will be able to handle a whole army as though you had
                    to do with but a single man.-- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Unhappy is the fate of one who tries to win his battles and succeed in his
                    attacks without cultivating the spirit of enterprise; for the result is waste of time
                    and general stagnation. Hence the saying: The enlightened ruler lays his
                    plans well ahead; the good general cultivates his resources. -- Sun Tzu, the
                    Art of War
                    Move not unless you see an advantage; use not your troops unless there is
                    something to be gained; fight not unless the position is critical. If it is to your
                    advantage, make a forward move; if not, stay where you are. Anger may in
                    time change to gladness; vexation may be succeeded by content. -- Sun Tzu,
                    the Art of War
                    No leader should put troops into the field merely to gratify his own spleen; no
                    leader should fight a battle simply out of pique. But a kingdom that has once
                    been destroyed can never come again into being; nor can the dead ever be
                    brought back to life. Hence the enlightened leader is heedful, and the good
                    leader full of caution. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    Spies cannot be usefully employed without a certain intuitive sagacity; (2)
                    They cannot be properly managed without benevolence and straight
                    forwardness; (3) Without subtle ingenuity of mind, one cannot make certain of
                    the truth of their reports; (4) Be subtle! be subtle! and use your spies for every
                    kind of warfare; (5) If a secret piece of news is divulged by a spy before the
                    time is ripe, he must be put to death together with the man to whom the secret
                    was told. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War

                    The enemy's spies who have come to spy on us must be sought out, tempted
                    with bribes, led away and comfortably housed. Thus they will become double
                    agents and available for our service. It is through the information brought by
                    the double agent that we are able to acquire and employ local and inward
                    spies. It is owing to his information, again, that we can cause the doomed spy
                    to carry false tidings to the enemy. -- Sun Tzu, the Art of War
                    "To capture the enemy's entire army is better than to destroy it; to take intact a
                    regiment, a company, or a squad is better than to destroy them. For to win one
                    hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the supreme of excellence. To
                    subdue the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence." -- Sun Tzu, the

                    because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded, because

                    People who live and work together share many habits, ideas, skills, traditions,
                    and values. All these habitual ways of thinking and acting make up the
                    societies culture. Culture is the way of life that a group develops and passes
                    on to its children… Culture has been described as "a blueprint for living".
                    From birth to death, most of human life is spent learning, following, and
                    passing on this blueprint. (World History, L. Krieger, D.C Heath & Co. p19.)
                    To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers
                    has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers,
                    have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first
                    principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his
                    industry and the fruits acquired by it." --Thomas Jefferson

                    in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of
                    government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and
                    grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to
                    furnish new pretenses for revenues and taxation. It watches prosperity as its
                    prey and permits none to escape without tribute." --Thomas Paine

                    "A government which lays taxes on the people not required by urgent public
                    necessity and sound public policy is not a protector of liberty, but an
                    instrument of tyranny." --Calvin Coolidge
                    "A nation under a well regulated government, should permit none to remain

                    ignorance for its support." --Thomas Paine

                    "And if we now cast our eyes over the nations of the earth, we shall find that,
                    instead of possessing the pure religion of the Gospel, they may be divided
                    either into infidels, who deny the truth; or politicians who make religion a
                    stalking horse for their ambition; or professors, who walk in the trammels of
                    orthodoxy, and are more attentive to traditions and ordinances of men than to

                    In a completely rational society, the best of us would aspire to be teachers and
                    the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing

                    "When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers,
                    let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers
                    'just men who will rule in the fear of God.' The preservation of a republican
                    government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty; If the citizens
                    neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will
                    soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for
                    the selfish or local purposes; Corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to
                    execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men;
                    and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded. If a Republican
                    government fails to secure public prosperity and happiness, it must be

                    A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another;
                    which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and
                    improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned - This
                    is the sum of good government -- Thomas Jefferson, first inaugural address, 3/4/1801.
