The word 'good' has many meanings. For example, if a man were to shoot his grandmother at a range of five hundred yards, I should call him a good shot, but not necessarily a good man.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.
If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.
I wish I could say I see my little brother more. We used to fight all the time but now that I don't see him very often I cherish the time I have with him.
Reading made Don Quixote a gentleman, but believing what he read made him mad.
George Bernard Shaw
The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.
Happiness is your dentist telling you it won't hurt and then having him catch his hand in the drill.
I'd call him a sadistic, hippophilic necrophile, but that would be beating a dead horse.
Do not just look at your boyfriend as just a boyfriend. Look at him as a friend, too.
My idol is Emile Zola. He was a man of the left, so people expected of him a kind of 'Les Miserables,' in which the underdogs are always noble people. But he went out, and found a lot of ambitious, drunk, slothful and mean people out there. Zola simply could not - and was not interested in - telling a lie.
There is in every madman a misunderstood genius whose idea, shining in his head, frightened people, and for whom delirium was the only solution to the strangulation that life had prepared for him.
Would not the child's heart break in despair when the first cold storm of the world sweeps over it, if the warm sunlight of love from the eyes of mother and father did not shine upon him like the soft reflection of divine light and love?
No matter how corrupt and unjust a convict may be, he loves fairness more than anything else. If the people placed over him are unfair, from year to year he lapses into an embittered state characterized by an extreme lack of faith.
Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him.
The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes 'sight-seeing.'
Daniel J. Boorstin
The funny thing is that my husband couldn't be sweeter. He looks like this bad boy. He's got tattoos and earrings and a mohawk, but when you talk to him and he's around you, he's such a gentleman. He holds doors for ladies. He pulls out chairs. He cooks. He cleans.
Give him enough rope and he will hang himself.
He's just like my father that way-my father just adored my mother and let her do whatever she wanted. John's like that. He's a very rare man, a very good man, and I've had a good life with him. I'm proud to be walking in the wake of Johnny's fame.
June Carter Cash
Everything comes to him who hustles while he waits.
Thomas A. Edison
The end of life is to be like God, and the soul following God will be like Him.
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and he asked for my autograph.
Nobody is forgotten when it is convenient to remember him.
I like Mitt Romney as a person. I think he's a dignified person. But I have no common ground on economics. He doesn't worry about the Federal Reserve. He doesn't worry about foreign policy. He doesn't talk about civil liberties, so I would have a hard time to expect him to ever invite me to campaign with him.
People told me I couldn't kill Nicholson, so I cast him in two roles and killed him off twice.
I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty, and like Him, I love all of humanity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
