I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.
William Tecumseh Sherman
I have no faith in human perfectability. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active - not more happy - nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.
Edgar Allan Poe
Service which is rendered without joy helps neither the servant nor the served. But all other pleasures and possessions pale into nothingness before service which is rendered in a spirit of joy.
I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
I call God to witness that as a private person I have done nothing unbeseeming an honest man, nor, as I bear the place of a public man, have I done anything unworthy of my place.
A gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Do not overrate what you have received, nor envy others. He who envies others does not obtain peace of mind.
Success is neither magical nor mysterious. Success is the natural consequence of consistently applying the basic fundamentals.
They wrote in the old days that it is sweet and fitting to die for one's country. But in modern war, there is nothing sweet nor fitting in your dying. You will die like a dog for no good reason.
Marriage is neither heaven nor hell, it is simply purgatory.
It is neither wealth nor splendor; but tranquility and occupation which give you happiness.
The highest and most beautiful things in life are not to be heard about, nor read about, nor seen but, if one will, are to be lived.
Happiness is neither without us nor within us. It is in God, both without us and within us.
I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous - if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Grace is not part of consciousness; it is the amount of light in our souls, not knowledge nor reason.
There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third kind useless.
Gay marriage will be universally accepted in time. But if I may be so bold as to say to gays and lesbians, don't wait for that time to arrive. Just as my father and his generation did not 'wait' for their civil rights, nor should you. The toothpaste ain't going back in the tube. The tide has turned.
True love cannot be found where it does not exist, nor can it be denied where it does.
As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.
Henry David Thoreau
The life of an uneducated man is as useless as the tail of a dog which neither covers its rear end, nor protects it from the bites of insects.
We should not fret for what is past, nor should we be anxious about the future; men of discernment deal only with the present moment.
Love seeketh not itself to please, nor for itself hath any care, but for another gives its ease, and builds a Heaven in Hell's despair.
The will is a beast of burden. If God mounts it, it wishes and goes as God wills; if Satan mounts it, it wishes and goes as Satan wills; Nor can it choose its rider... the riders contend for its possession.
There is no greater glory than love, nor any greater punishment than jealousy.
Lope de Vega
The moving finger writes, and having written moves on. Nor all thy piety nor all thy wit, can cancel half a line of it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
