You cannot truly listen to anyone and do anything else at the same time.
M. Scott Peck
Our government is founded upon the intelligence of the people. I for one do not despair of the republic. I have great confidence in the virtue of the great majority of the people, and I cannot fear the result.
There is no person that love cannot heal; there is no soul that love cannot save.
Sin cannot be conceived in a natural state, but only in a civil state, where it is decreed by common consent what is good or bad.
If you insist upon fighting to protect me, or 'our' country, let it be understood soberly and rationally between us that you are fighting to gratify a sex instinct which I cannot share; to procure benefits where I have not shared and probably will not share.
We cannot say that if a child is badly nourished he will become a criminal. We must see what conclusion the child has drawn.
No one will do for you what you need to do for yourself. We cannot afford to be separate. We have to see that all of us are in the same boat.
There is only one valuable thing in art: the thing you cannot explain.

Men, women, and children who cannot live on gravity alone need something to satisfy their gayer, lighter moods and hours, and he who ministers to this want is, in my opinion, in a business established by the Creator of our nature. If he worthily fulfills his mission and amuses without corrupting, he need never feel that he has lived in vain.
P. T. Barnum
Experiences are savings which a miser puts aside. Wisdom is an inheritance which a wastrel cannot exhaust.

It is not just a sentiment. It cannot be manifested merely by a shift in mental disposition. It can only come from inner cleaning, an inner awakening.
Chastity is the cement of civilization and progress. Without it there is no stability in society, and without it one cannot attain the Science of Life.
Mary Baker Eddy
