The Nuremberg trials of Nazi leaders, in open court before an international tribunal, had a profound long-term effect in bringing Germans back to democracy and humanity.
Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.
When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before.
First thing every morning before you arise say out loud, 'I believe,' three times.
I've never been to New Zealand before. But one of my role models, Xena, the warrior princess, comes from there.
Women have full equality with men before the Lord. By nature, the roles of women differ from those of men. This knowledge has come to us with the Restoration of the gospel in the fullness of times, with an acknowledgment that women are endowed with the great responsibilities of motherhood and nurturing.
James E. Faust
Cancer is a great wake-up call. A call to take the tag off the new lingerie and wear that black lacy slip. To open the box of pearls and put them on. To crack open the bath oil beads before they shrivel up in a bowl on the toilet tank.
As a Korean War Veteran, I know too well the troubling nature of war. This is why I will always support a diplomatic answer before military intervention.

Antarctica is otherworldly, like nothing I've ever seen before. Stark, cold, beautiful desolation.
What we forget is that African Americans made the largest contribution to America, economically, before the Civil War of any sector of society. I read that the railroads were worth about $2 billion, but slavery was a $3 billion asset.
Any swagger is just defense. When you're reminded so much of who you are by people - not a fame thing, but with my size, constantly, growing up - you just either curl up in a corner in the dark or you wear it proudly, like armor or something. You can turn it on its head and use it yourself before anybody else gets a chance.

Low-cost, high-grade coal, oil and natural gas - the backbone of the Industrial Revolution - will be a distant memory by 2050. Much higher-cost remnants will still be available, but they will not be able to drive our growth, our population and, most critically, our food supply as before.
I meditate and pray before going onstage - it helps me focus.
A realist, in Venice, would become a romantic by mere faithfulness to what he saw before him.
What I absolutely want is to suggest that before it's anything else, redemption is God mending the bicycle of our souls; God bringing out the puncture repair kit, re-inflating the tires, taking off the rust, making us roadworthy once more. Not so that we can take flight into ecstasy, but so that we can do the next needful mile of our lives.
Dessert is probably the most important stage of the meal, since it will be the last thing your guests remember before they pass out all over the table.
Everything has been said before, but since nobody listens we have to keep going back and beginning all over again.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
