Quote of the Day
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government.
Unconditional love really exists in each of us. It is part of our deep inner being. It is not so much an active emotion as a state of being. It's not 'I love you' for this or that reason, not 'I love you if you love me.' It's love for no reason, love without an object.
The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
George S. Patton
The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
Being busy does not always mean real work. The object of all work is production or accomplishment and to either of these ends there must be forethought, system, planning, intelligence, and honest purpose, as well as perspiration. Seeming to do is not doing.
Thomas A. Edison
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
Robert M. Hutchins
The human brain has 100 billion neurons, each neuron connected to 10 thousand other neurons. Sitting on your shoulders is the most complicated object in the known universe.
The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.
I say to mankind, Be not curious about God. For I, who am curious about each, am not curious about God - I hear and behold God in every object, yet understand God not in the least.
Every decently-made object, from a house to a lamp post to a bridge, spoon or egg cup, is not just a piece of 'stuff' but a physical embodiment of human energy, testimony to the magical ability of our species to take raw materials and turn them into things of use, value and beauty.
False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.
I discovered that the horse is life itself, a metaphor but also an example of life's mystery and unpredictability, of life's generosity and beauty, a worthy object of repeated and ever changing contemplation.
Painting from nature is not copying the object; it is realizing one's sensations.
I will far rather see the race of man extinct than that we should become less than beasts by making the noblest of God's creation, woman, the object of our lust.
No object is mysterious. The mystery is your eye.
Every beloved object is the center point of a paradise.
Mental illness, of course, is not literally a 'thing' - or physical object - and hence it can 'exist' only in the same sort of way in which other theoretical concepts exist.
Joy can only be real if people look upon their life as a service and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness.
Once an object has been incorporated in a picture it accepts a new destiny.
Simplicity is not the absence of clutter, that's a consequence of simplicity. Simplicity is somehow essentially describing the purpose and place of an object and product. The absence of clutter is just a clutter-free product. That's not simple.
The great object is that every man be armed.
Happiness in this world, when it comes, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us a wild-goose chase, and is never attained. Follow some other object, and very possibly we may find that we have caught happiness without dreaming of it.
For me an object is something living. This cigarette or this box of matches contains a secret life much more intense than that of certain human beings.
Never fight an inanimate object.
P. J. O'Rourke
C. S. Lewis
