                         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

                         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

                         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

                         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

                   A state is not a mere society, having a common place, established for the prevention of

                   Sane and intelligent human beings are like all other human beings, and carefully and

                   The fact that man knows right from wrong proves his intellectual superiority to other
                   creatures; but the fact that he can do wrong proves his moral inferiority to any creature

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

                   Men's natures are alike, it is their habits that carry them far apart. -- Confucius
                   Respect yourself and others will respect you. -- Confucius
                   Study the past if you would define the future. -- Confucius
                   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

                   What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others. --

                   When anger rises, think of the consequences. – Confucius
                   When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine

                   Analects
                   Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue. --
                   Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar
                   star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it. -- Confucius, The Confucian
                   Analects

                   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 Analects

                   If a man takes no thought about what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand. --
                   Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   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

                   Is virtue a thing remote? I wish to be virtuous, and lo! Virtue is at hand. -- Confucius, The

                   Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous. -- Confucius,

                   Recompense injury with justice, and recompense kindness with kindness. -- Confucius,

                   The cautious seldom err. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   The firm, the enduring, the simple, and the modest are near to virtue. -- 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 back it
                   extends - such a man may be reckoned a complete man. -- Confucius, The Confucian
                   Analects
                   The people may be made to follow a path of action, but they may not be made to
                   understand it. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   The scholar who cherishes the love of comfort is not fit to be deemed a scholar. --
                   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
                   Confucian Analects
                   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 Confucian
                   Analects
                   Things that are done, it is needless to speak about...things that are past, it is needless to
                   blame. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   To be able to practice five things everywhere under heaven constitutes perfect
                   virtue...[They are] gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness. --
                   Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   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. --
                   Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors. -- Confucius, The
                   Confucian Analects
                   What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others. -- Confucius, The Confucian
                   Analects
                   When a man's knowledge is sufficient to attain, and his virtue is not sufficient to enable
                   him to hold, whatever he may have gained, he will lose again. -- Confucius, The
                   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
                   joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to
                   me as a floating cloud. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects

                   Without an acquaintance with the rules of propriety, it is impossible for the character to
                   be established. -- Confucius, The Confucian Analects
                   [The superior man] acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his

                   Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and
                   evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to

                   Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to
                   leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment. -- Benjamin Franklin

                   Search others for their virtues, thyself for thy vices. -- Benjamin Franklin
                   There is no kind of dishonesty into which otherwise good people more easily and
                   frequently fall than that of defrauding the government. -- Benjamin Franklin

                   They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither
                   liberty nor safety. -- Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759

                   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
                   Strain every nerve to gain your point. -- 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
                   Where is there dignity unless there is honesty? -- Cicero
                   Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others. -- Cicero, 'Pro
                   Plancio,' 54 B.C.
                   While there's life, there's hope. -- Cicero, Ad Atticum
                   The shifts of Fortune test the reliability of friends. -- Cicero, De Amicitia
                   There is nothing so ridiculous but some philosopher has said it. -- Cicero, De Divinatione

                   Let the punishment match the offense. -- Cicero, De Legibus
                   The people's good is the highest law. -- Cicero, De Legibus
                   Friendship make prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it.
                   -- Cicero, On Friendship, 44 B.C.
                   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
                   Publio Sestio
                   A precedent embalms a principle. -- Benjamin Disraeli 1850 England
                   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

                   Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth. -- Benjamin

                   No government can be long secure without formidable opposition. -- Benjamin Disraeli

                   The best way to become acquainted with a subject is to write a book about it. -- 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
                   him his own. -- Benjamin Disraeli
                   The magic of first love is our ignorance that it can never end. -- Benjamin Disraeli

                   The more extensive a man's knowledge of what has been done, the greater will be his
                   power of knowing what to do. -- Benjamin Disraeli
                   The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation. --

                   Change is inevitable. In a progressive country change is constant. -- Benjamin Disraeli,

                   The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers
                   around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man. --
                   Euripides
                   Waste not fresh tears over old griefs. -- Euripides
                   A bad beginning makes a bad ending. -- Euripides, Aegeus
                   The company of just and righteous men is better than wealth and a rich estate. --
                   Euripides, Aegeus
                   Dishonor will not trouble me, once I am dead. -- Euripides, Alcestis, 438 B.C.
                   I have found power in the mysteries of thought, exaltation in the changing of the Muses; I
                   have been versed in the reasonings of men; but Fate is stronger than anything I have
                   known. -- Euripides, Alcestis, 438 B.C.
                   Never say that marriage has more of joy than pain. -- Euripides, Alcestis, 438 B.C.

                   Time cancels young pain. -- Euripides, Alcestis, 438 B.C.
                   Man's best possession is a sympathetic wife. -- Euripides, Antigone

                   Tauris, circa 412 B.C.
                   There is no benefit in the gifts of a bad man. -- Euripides, Medea, 431 B.C.
                   Whoso neglects learning in his youth, Loses the past and is dead for the future. --
                   Euripides, Phrixus
                   Slight not what's near through aiming at what's far. -- Euripides, Rhesus, circa 435 B.C.

                   When good men die their goodness does not perish, But lives though they are gone. As
                   for the bad, All that was theirs dies and is buried with them. -- Euripides, Temenidae

                   Against criticism a man can neither protest nor defend himself; he must act in spite of it,
                   and then it will gradually yield to him. -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 1800

                   Divide and rule, a sound motto. Unite and lead, a better one. -- Johann Wolfgang von
                   Goethe
                   Enjoy when you can, and endure when you must. -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

                   How can you come to know yourself? Never by thinking, always by doing. Try to do your
                   duty, and you'll know right away what you amount to. -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

                   If any man wish to write in a clear style, let him be first clear in his thoughts; and if any
                   would write in a noble style, let him first possess a noble soul. -- Johann Wolfgang von
                   Goethe
                   Just trust yourself, then you will know how to live. -- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust

                   Never fear the want of business. A man who qualifies himself well for his calling, never
                   fails of employment. -- Thomas Jefferson
                   Never spend your money before you have it. -- Thomas Jefferson

                   Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and
                   unruffled under all circumstances. -- Thomas Jefferson
                   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. --

                   Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it. -- Helen Keller

                   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

                   The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and

                   tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu
                   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
                   Manifest plainness, Embrace simplicity, Reduce selfishness, Have few

                   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 Way of Lao-tzu
                   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 Lao-tzu
                   When armies are mobilized and issues are joined, The man who is sorry over
                   the fact will win. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu

                   When the highest type of men hear Tao, They diligently practice it. When the
                   average type of men hear Tao, They half believe in it. When the lowest type
                   of men hear Tao, They laugh heartily at it. -- Lao-tzu, The Way of Lao-tzu

                   Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what

                   Man...is a tame or civilized animal; never the less, he requires proper

                   If we had no faults of our own, we would not take so much pleasure in
                   noticing those of others. -- Francois de La Rochefoucauld
                   It is a great ability to be able to conceal one's ability. -- Francois de La
                   Rochefoucauld
                   Our repentance is not so much regret for the ill we have done as fear of the ill
                   that may happen to us in consequence. -- Francois de La Rochefoucauld

                   The pleasure of love is in loving. -- Francois de La Rochefoucauld
                   We confess our little faults to persuade people that we have no large ones. --
                   Francois de La Rochefoucauld
                   We should often be ashamed of our finest actions if the world understood our
                   motives. -- Francois de La Rochefoucauld
                   When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it
                   elsewhere. -- Francois de La Rochefoucauld
                   We rarely think people have good sense unless they agree with us. --
                   Francois de La Rochefoucauld, Maximes (1678)
                   All art is an imitation of nature. -- Seneca Rome 50
                   Be not too hasty either with praise or blame; speak always as though you
                   were giving evidence before the judgement-seat of the Gods. -- Seneca

                   Be silent as to services you have rendered, but speak of favours you have
                   received. -- Seneca
                   Consult your friend on all things, especially on those which respect yourself.
                   His counsel may then be useful where your own self-love might impair your
                   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
                   Difficulties strengthen the mind, as labor does the body. -- Seneca
                   Enjoy present pleasures in such a way as not to injure future ones. -- Seneca

                   He who spares the wicked injures the good. -- Seneca

                   He will live ill who does not know how to die well. -- Seneca
                   I do not distinguish by the eye, but by the mind, which is the proper judge. --
                   Seneca
                   I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad author if the line is good. -- Seneca

                   If a man does not know to what port he is steering, no wind is favourable to
                   him. -- Seneca
                   If virtue precede us every step will be safe. -- Seneca
                   It is a denial of justice not to stretch out a helping hand to the fallen; that is
                   the common right of humanity. -- Seneca
                   It is a great thing to know the season for speech and the season for silence. --
                   Seneca
                   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
                   not dare that they are difficult. -- Seneca
                   It is pleasant at times to play the madman. -- Seneca
                   It is rash to condemn where you are ignorant. -- Seneca
                   It should be our care not so much to live a long life as a satisfactory one. --
                   Seneca
                   Let tears flow of their own accord: their flowing is not inconsistent with inward
                   peace and harmony. -- Seneca
                   Life without the courage for death is slavery. -- Seneca
                   Many things have fallen only to rise higher. -- Seneca
                   Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power. -- Seneca
                   No one can wear a mask for very long. -- Seneca
                   Not to feel one's misfortunes is not human, not to bear them in not manly. --
                   Seneca
                   Nothing deters a good man from doing what is honourable. -- Seneca
                   One hand washes the other. (Manus Manum Lavet) -- Seneca
                   One should count each day a separate life. -- Seneca
                   Speech is the mirror of the mind. (Imago Animi Sermo Est) -- Seneca
                   The arts are the servant; wisdom its master. -- Seneca
                   The first step towards amendment is the recognition of error. -- Seneca
                   Wealth is the slave of a wise man. The master of a fool. -- Seneca
                   What does reason demand of a man? A very easy thing--to live in accord
                   with his nature. -- Seneca
                   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,
                   'Hercules Furens,' 100 A.D.
                   Fire is the test of gold; adversity, of strong men. -- Seneca, Epistles
                   It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is
                   poor. -- Seneca, Epistles
                   It is quality rather than quantity that matters. -- Seneca, Epistles
                   Live among men as if God beheld you; speak to God as if men were
                   listening. -- 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. --
                   Seneca, Epistles
                   The best ideas are common property. -- Seneca, Epistles
                   There is no great genius without some touch of madness. -- Seneca, Epistles

                   You can tell the character of every man when you see how he receives
                   praise. -- Seneca, Epistles
                   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.
                   -- Seneca, Letters to Lucilius, 100 A.D.
                   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
                   by broad spreading it disperses to naught. -- William Shakespeare
                   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
                   Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we
                   deserve. -- George Bernard Shaw
                   Hegel was right when he said that we learn from history that man can never
                   learn anything from history. -- George Bernard Shaw
                   Lack of money is the root of all evil. -- George Bernard Shaw
                   Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all other countries
                   because you were born in it. -- George Bernard Shaw
                   When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth. -- 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"
                   (1893) act II
                   The worst sin toward our fellow creatures is not to hate them, but to be
                   indifferent to them: that's the essence of inhumanity. -- George Bernard
                   Shaw, "The Devil's Disciple" (1901), act II
                   "Do you know what a pessimist is?" "A man who thinks everybody is as nasty
                   as himself, and hates them for it." -- George Bernard Shaw, An Unsocial
                   Socialist (1887) ch. 5
                   All great truths begin as blasphemies. -- George Bernard Shaw, Annajanska
                   (1919)
                   We have no more right to consume happiness without producing it than to
                   consume wealth without producing it. -- George Bernard Shaw, Candida
                   (1898) act 1
                   A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always depend on the support
                   of Paul. -- George Bernard Shaw, Everybody's Political What's What? (1944)
                   ch. 30
                   He knows nothing; and he thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to
                   a political career. -- George Bernard Shaw, Major Barbara (1907) act 3
                   Democracy substitutes election by the incompetent many for appointment by
                   the corrupt few. -- George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman (1903)
                   "Maxims for Revolutionists"
                   Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it. -- George

                   By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad
                   one, you'll become a philosopher. -- Socrates 420 BC
                   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
                   Money: There's nothing in the world so demoralizing as money. -- Sophocles,
                   Antigone
                   Nobody likes the man who brings bad news. -- Sophocles, Antigone
                   Numberless are the world's wonders, but none |More wonderful than man. --
                   Sophocles, Antigone
                   Reason is God's crowning gift to man. -- Sophocles, Antigone
                   Show me the man who keeps his house in hand, | He's fit for public authority.
                   -- 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. --

                   Time eases all things. -- Sophocles, Oedipus Rex
                   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
                   Look with favour upon a bold beginning. -- Virgil rome – 30 BC
                   O tyrant love, to what do you not drive the hearts of men. -- Virgil

                   I am a man: I hold that nothing human is alien to me. -- Terence
                   I bid him look into the lives of men as though into a mirror, and from others to
                   take an example for himself. -- Terence

                   I have everything, yet have nothing; and although I possess nothing, still of nothing am I
                   in want. -- Terence, Eunuchus
                   In fact, nothing is said that has not been said before. -- Terence, Eunuchus

                   First learn the meaning of what you say, and then speak. -- Epictetus
                   First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do. -- Epictetus

                   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
                   Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens. -- 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
                   harmed. -- Epicurus
                   The man least dependent upon the morrow goes to meet the morrow most cheerfully. --
                   Epicurus, 300 B.C.
                   Death is nothing to us, since when we are, death has not come, and when death has
                   come, we are not. -- Epicurus, from Diogenes Laertius, Lives of Eminent Philosophers

                   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

                   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

                   Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be

                   In anger we should refrain both from speech and action. -- Pythagoras
                   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

                   Bourne
                   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

                   I prefer the company of peasants because they have not been educated sufficiently to
                   reason incorrectly. -- Michel de Montaigne (1533 - 1592)
                   Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self
                   confidence. -- Robert Frost (1874 - 1963)
                   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 - 1981)

                   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 Art of War
                   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

                   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

                   To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his

                   fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the

                   and the rest of us would have to settle for something less, because passing
                   civilization along from one generation to the next ought to be the highest
                   honor and the highest responsibility anyone could have." Lee Iacocca
                   "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 (6th century B.C.
                   Chinese general) in "The Art of War"
                   "The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook." --William
                   James
                   "Thou hast commanded that an ill-regulated mind should be its own
                   punishment." --Saint Augustine
                   The devil's boots don't creak." --Scottish Proverb
                   "The streets of hell are paved with good intentions." --Mark Twain

                   "Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some
                   blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can.
                   Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit
                   to be cumbered with your old nonsense." --Ralph Waldo Emerson

                   "The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the
                   republican model of government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as
                   finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American
                   People." -- George Washington First Inaugural Address, April 30, 1789

                         "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 because the citizens neglect the divine commands, and elect bad
                         men to make and administer the laws." --Noah Webster

                         "Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion
                         and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the
                         tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human
                         happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of Men and citizens." George
                         Washington Farewell Address, September 19, 1796:
                         Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical. -- Yogi Berra – 1963,
                         baseball mgr
                         I didn't really say everything I said. -- Yogi Berra
                         It ain't over till it's over. -- Yogi Berra
                         No one goes there nowadays, it's too crowded. -- Yogi Berra
                         Nothing is like it seems, but everything is exactly like it is -- Yogi Berra
                         The future ain't what it used to be. -- Yogi Berra
                         This is like deja vu all over again. -- Yogi Berra
                         When you come to a fork in the road, take it. -- Yogi Berra

                         If the fans don't wanna come out to the ballpark, no one can stop 'em. -- Yogi
                         Berra, as quoted by Joe Garagiola on the Jack Paar show, NBC 1963
                         You can observe a lot just by watching. -- Yogi Berra, Berra's Law
                         Men willingly believe what they wish. -- Julius Caesar, De Bello Gallico 50
                         BC
                         Veni, vidi, vici. [I came, I saw, I conquered] -- Julius Caesar, from Suetonius,
                         Lives of the Caesars
                         Have patience awhile; slanders are not long-lived. Truth is the child of time;
                         erelong she shall appear to vindicate thee. -- Immanuel Kant

                         Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life. -- Immanuel Kant
                         "The centralization of power in Washington, which nearly all members of
                         Congress deplore in their speech and then support by their votes, steadily
                         increases." --Calvin Coolidge
                         "The point to remember is that what the government gives it must first take
                         away." --John Strider Coleman

                         Observation more than books, experience rather than persons, are the prime
                         educators. -- Alcott, Amos Bronson – American philosopher - (1799 - 1888)
                         The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet -- Aristotle

                         Education is an ornament in prosperity and a refuge in adversity. -- Aristotle

                         The proof that you know something is that you are able to teach it. -- Aristotle
                         All men by nature desire to know. -- Aristotle
                         The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.
                         -- Astaire, Fred
                         Sometimes when learning comes before experience it doesn't make sense
                         right away. -- Bach, Richard
                         Universities incline wits to sophistry and affectation -- Bacon, Sir Francis
                         If a man is a fool, you don't train him out of being a fool by sending him to
                         university. You merely turn him into a trained fool, ten times more dangerous.
                         -- Bagley, Desmond

                         An educated person is one who has learned that information almost always
                         turns out to be at best incomplete and very often false, misleading, fictitious,
                         mendacious - just dead wrong. -- Baker, Russell Wayne
                         Teaching is not a lost art, but the regard for it is a lost tradition. -- Barzun,
                         Jacques

                         The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to
                         think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves,
                         than to load the memory with thoughts of other men. -- Beattie, Bill
                         A good education is not so much one which prepares a man to succeed in
                         the world, as one which enables him to sustain a failure. -- Bell, Bernard
                         Iddings
                         To bring up a child in the way he should go, travel that way yourself once in a
                         while. -- Billings, Josh
                         Knowledge is like money: the more he gets, the more he craves. -- Billings,
                         Josh
                         It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely
                         uneducated -- Bourne, Alec
                         It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot, irreverence
                         to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it.
                         -- Bronowski, Jacob
                         Education makes a people easy to lead, but difficult to drive; easy to govern
                         but impossible to enslave. -- Brougham, Baron Henry Peter
                         The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes, and
                         inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself. -- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward
                         Robert

                         If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure
                         peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity; it must
                         be known that we are at all times ready for war." --George Washington
                         "Never exceed your rights, and they will soon become unlimited." --Jean
                         Jacques Rousseau
                         "None can love freedom heartily, but good men; the rest love not freedom,
                         but license." --John Milton
                         "The worst lesson that can be taught to a man is to rely upon others and to
                         whine over his sufferings." --Theodore Roosevelt
                         "We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office."
                         –Aesop
                         "Politics sure is a great character builder. You have to take a referendum to
                         see what your convictions are for that day." --Will Rogers
                         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.
