Quote of the Day
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
It isn't until you come to a spiritual understanding of who you are - not necessarily a religious feeling, but deep down, the spirit within - that you can begin to take control.
But the person who scored well on an SAT will not necessarily be the best doctor or the best lawyer or the best businessman. These tests do not measure character, leadership, creativity, perseverance.
William Julius Wilson
The figure a poem makes. It begins in delight and ends in wisdom... in a clarification of life - not necessarily a great clarification, such as sects and cults are founded on, but in a momentary stay against confusion.
A democracy which makes or even effectively prepares for modern, scientific war must necessarily cease to be democratic. No country can be really well prepared for modern war unless it is governed by a tyrant, at the head of a highly trained and perfectly obedient bureaucracy.
The over-all point is that new technology will not necessarily replace old technology, but it will date it. By definition. Eventually, it will replace it. But it's like people who had black-and-white TVs when color came out. They eventually decided whether or not the new technology was worth the investment.
I don't necessarily believe in organized religion.
Conservatives are not necessarily stupid, but most stupid people are conservatives.
John Stuart Mill
Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.
Robert A. Heinlein

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Rules are not necessarily sacred, principles are.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Every great architect is - necessarily - a great poet. He must be a great original interpreter of his time, his day, his age.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The man who does not know other languages, unless he is a man of genius, necessarily has deficiencies in his ideas.
A toothache, or a violent passion, is not necessarily diminished by our knowledge of its causes, its character, its importance or insignificance.
T. S. Eliot
I always try to put a seed of hope into people's hearts. I'm not there to teach them doctrine necessarily, but to let them know that God is a good God, and has a plan for their lives. Hopefully, that will restore their faith, or draw them into faith.
The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labor.
Our program necessarily includes the propaganda of atheism.
A thing is not necessarily true because badly uttered, nor false because spoken magnificently.
Capitalism knows only one color: that color is green; all else is necessarily subservient to it, hence, race, gender and ethnicity cannot be considered within it.
Like the physical, the psychical is not necessarily in reality what it appears to us to be.

Men are so necessarily mad, that not to be mad would amount to another form of madness.
There is no need to worry about mere size. We do not necessarily respect a fat man more than a thin man. Sir Isaac Newton was very much smaller than a hippopotamus, but we do not on that account value him less.
I don't think Christmas is necessarily about things. It's about being good to one another, it's about the Christian ethic, it's about kindness.
What is grand is necessarily obscure to weak men. That which can be made explicit to the idiot is not worth my care.
Though silence is not necessarily an admission, it is not a denial, either.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
