The contemplative life is often miserable. One must act more, think less, and not watch oneself live.
On vacation, you can wear all the colorful and casual clothing that you like, but you must always be elegant.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.
The people must know before they can act, and there is no educator to compare with the press.
Ida B. Wells
The mystery of the beginning of all things is insoluble by us; and I for one must be content to remain an agnostic.
True leaders don't invest in buildings. Jesus never built a building. They invest in people. Why? Because success without a successor is failure. So your legacy should not be in buildings, programs, or projects; your legacy must be in people.

Every mind must make its choice between truth and repose. It cannot have both.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
To understand how black projects began, and how they continue to function today, one must start with the creation of the atomic bomb.

They are spoken with clarity and not with confusion. They may be tender or they may be tough, but they must always be tempered.
L. Lionel Kendrick
That's one of the nice things. I mean, part of the beauty of me is that I'm very rich. So if I need $600 million, I can put $600 million myself. That's a huge advantage. I must tell you, that's a huge advantage over the other candidates.
