Thought is a key to all treasures; the miser's gains are ours without his cares. Thus I have soared above this world, where my enjoyment have been intellectual joys.
Honore de Balzac
I hope that no more groans of wounded men and women will ever go to the ear of the Great Spirit Chief above, and that all people may be one people.
Be amusing: never tell unkind stories; above all, never tell long ones.
All men are created equal, it is only men themselves who place themselves above equality.
David Allan Coe
The great majority of Baghdad is a slum - a lot of it's new, but it's still slum. It's usually this concrete-block, one-room design with a door and a window, arranged one-up, one-down, often with a shop with nothing in it on the first floor, and then a one-room apartment above it. There's street after street after street of that stuff.
P. J. O'Rourke
Judges ought to be more leaned than witty, more reverent than plausible, and more advised than confident. Above all things, integrity is their portion and proper virtue.
Patriotism is often an arbitrary veneration of real estate above principles.
George Jean Nathan
Peace, above all things, is to be desired, but blood must sometimes be spilled to obtain it on equable and lasting terms.
Truth indeed rather alleviates than hurts, and will always bear up against falsehood, as oil does above water.
Miguel de Cervantes
Above all, this country is our own. Nobody has to get up in the morning and worry what his neighbors think of him. Being a Jew is no problem here.
Men of integrity, by their very existence, rekindle the belief that as a people we can live above the level of moral squalor. We need that belief; a cynical community is a corrupt community.
John W. Gardner
The divine is not something high above us. It is in heaven, it is in earth, it is inside us.
Swing voters are more appropriately known as the 'idiot voters' because they have no set of philosophical principles. By the age of fourteen, you're either a Conservative or a Liberal if you have an IQ above a toaster.
It seems that entertainment is what most excites us and what we value above everything else.
Above everything else I've done, I've always said I've had more guts than I've got talent.
I would cap the amount of federal government can spend at 20 percent of the economy. Bring it back to 20 percent or lower. And say, we are not going to spend above that level. Democrats, they want to raise your taxes and spend more and more and turn us into an economy which is no longer driven by the private sector.
Above all be of single aim; have a legitimate and useful purpose, and devote yourself unreservedly to it.
Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above: For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
Mediocrity is now, as formerly, dangerous, commonly fatal, to the poet; but among even the successful writers of prose, those who rise sensibly above it are the very rarest exceptions.
William E. Gladstone
The French want no-one to be their superior. The English want inferiors. The Frenchman constantly raises his eyes above him with anxiety. The Englishman lowers his beneath him with satisfaction.
Alexis de Tocqueville
Above all else, deep in my soul, I'm a tough Irishwoman.
Saint Patrick's Day
I often lay on that bench looking up into the tree, past the trunk and up into the branches. It was particularly fine at night with the stars above the tree.
Love is, above all, the gift of oneself.
There are moments when a man's imagination, so easily subdued to what it lives in, suddenly rises above its daily level and surveys the long windings of destiny.
Remember above all that mental stability comes by examining the contents of the mind, not by avoidence.
John F. Kennedy
