Where there is devotional music, God is always at hand with His gracious presence.
Johann Sebastian Bach

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.
Robert A. Heinlein
A real Christian is a person who can give his pet parrot to the town gossip.
No one is more arrogant toward women, more aggressive or scornful, than the man who is anxious about his virility.
Simone de Beauvoir
It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
The love we have in our youth is superficial compared to the love that an old man has for his old wife.

The true test of a man's style is the haircut. There are some men who look good no matter how their hair is styled, whether it's trendy or not. A man can change his haircut many times, but to pull off any haircut, you have to be very chic. Like Brad Pitt.
In 1953, after the armistice ending the Korean War, South Korea lay in ruins. President Eisenhower was eager to put an end to hostilities that had left his predecessor deeply unpopular, and the war ended in an uneasy stalemate.
I remember opening my dad's closet and there were, like, 40 suits, every color of the rainbow, plaid and winter and summer. He had two jewelry boxes full of watches and lighters and cuff links. And just... he was that guy. He was probably unfulfilled in his life in many ways.
Joe Frazier is so ugly that when he cries, the tears turn around and go down the back of his head.
Poor is the pupil who does not surpass his master.
Leonardo da Vinci
As things are, and as fundamentally they must always be, poetry is not a career, but a mug's game. No honest poet can ever feel quite sure of the permanent value of what he has written: He may have wasted his time and messed up his life for nothing.
T. S. Eliot

Henry B. Eyring

Henry Louis Gates

As the eagle was killed by the arrow winged with his own feather, so the hand of the world is wounded by its own skill.
The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success only comes later.
No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause.
