Quote of the Day
I have nowhere claimed nor even implied that unbelief is a guarantee of good conduct or even an indicator of it.
The man of virtuous soul commands not, nor obeys.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Neither a life of anarchy nor one beneath a despot should you praise; to all that lies in the middle a god has given excellence.
What one hides is worth neither more nor less than what one finds. And what one hides from oneself is worth neither more nor less than what one allows others to find.
Money is neither my god nor my devil. It is a form of energy that tends to make us more of who we already are, whether it's greedy or loving.
Being and time determine each other reciprocally, but in such a manner that neither can the former - Being - be addressed as something temporal nor can the latter - time - be addressed as a being.
There are neither good nor bad subjects. From the point of view of pure Art, you could almost establish it as an axiom that the subject is irrelevant, style itself being an absolute manner of seeing things.
Art requires neither complaisance nor politeness; nothing but faith, faith and freedom.
To see nothing is to perceive the Way, and to understand nothing is to know the Dharma, because seeing is neither seeing nor not seeing and because understanding is neither understanding nor not understanding.
Let not a man do what his sense of right bids him not to do, nor desire what it forbids him to desire. This is sufficient. The skillful artist will not alter his measures for the sake of a stupid workman.
Sincerity is not a spontaneous flower nor is modesty either.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
And though thou notest from thy safe recess old friends burn dim, like lamps in noisome air love them for what they are; nor love them less, because to thee they are not what they were.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Deceive not thy physician, confessor, nor lawyer.
Drink moderately, for drunkeness neither keeps a secret, nor observes a promise.
Miguel de Cervantes
There is no such thing as perpetual tranquillity of mind while we live here; because life itself is but motion, and can never be without desire, nor without fear, no more than without sense.
I offer neither pay, nor quarters, nor food; I offer only hunger, thirst, forced marches, battles and death. Let him who loves his country with his heart, and not merely with his lips, follow me.
Libraries are reservoirs of strength, grace and wit, reminders of order, calm and continuity, lakes of mental energy, neither warm nor cold, light nor dark.
I never left France for Hollywood nor stashed my money in Switzerland.
Freedom is not a gift nor does it simply exist for us to have, but rather it is a sacred duty, and its blessed yield of hope is born from none other than the blood of the innocent.
Bryant H. McGill
The right to justice is something that no one can bestow, nor take away, for it is in one's heart.
Bryant H. McGill
Politicians neither love nor hate. Interest, not sentiment, directs them.
Neither the Army nor the Navy is of any protection, or very little protection, against aerial raids.
Alexander Graham Bell
A man should live with his superiors as he does with his fire: not too near, lest he burn; nor too far off, lest he freeze.
Victorious living does not mean freedom from temptation, nor does it mean freedom from mistakes.
E. Stanley Jones
It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell.
William Tecumseh Sherman
Friendship's the wine of life: but friendship new... is neither strong nor pure.

In the rush to become all things to all people, the federal government has lost sight of its core responsibilities. As a result we're stuck in this frustrating paradox where Washington actually neglects things it's clearly supposed to be doing, while interfering in other areas where they are neither welcome nor authorized.
Peace does not include a vendetta; there will be neither winners nor losers.
Ahmed Ben Bella
