Quote of the Day

Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.
Our souls may lose their peace and even disturb other people's, if we are always criticizing trivial actions - which often are not real defects at all, but we construe them wrongly through our ignorance of their motives.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Tears are often the telescope by which men see far into heaven.
Henry Ward Beecher
The torment of precautions often exceeds the dangers to be avoided. It is sometimes better to abandon one's self to destiny.
Often the difference between a successful man and a failure is not one's better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his ideas, to take a calculated risk, and to act.
The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn't angry enough.
I suppose I've always done my share of crying, especially when there's no other way to contain my feelings. I know that men ain't supposed to cry, but I think that's wrong. Crying's always been a way for me to get things out which are buried deep, deep down. When I sing, I often cry. Crying is feeling, and feeling is being human. Oh yes, I cry.
Speak to Him often of your business, your plans, your troubles, your fears - of everything that concerns you.
I learned that very often the most intolerant and narrow-minded people are the ones who congratulate themselves on their tolerance and open-mindedness.
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.
Vincent Van Gogh
Being defeated is often a temporary condition. Giving up is what makes it permanent.
Marilyn vos Savant
We failed, but in the good providence of God apparent failure often proves a blessing.
Robert E. Lee
Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress.
A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy. Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you. That's why advice is nice but often disappointing when heeded.
Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit.
Virtuous people often revenge themselves for the constraints to which they submit by the boredom which they inspire.
I'll co-host 'TODAY' from Los Angeles Saturday morning and then make my way up to Merced for that evening's graduation ceremony. I'm still touching up my remarks, but my challenge to the Class of 2010 will be to break through the deafening and too often negative echo chamber of the digital era and become critical and independent thinkers.
I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best.
Too often we... enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
John F. Kennedy
An example I often use to illustrate the reality of vanity, is this: look at the peacock; it's beautiful if you look at it from the front. But if you look at it from behind, you discover the truth... Whoever gives in to such self-absorbed vanity has huge misery hiding inside them.
Fear can be good when you're walking past an alley at night or when you need to check the locks on your doors before you go to bed, but it's not good when you have a goal and you're fearful of obstacles. We often get trapped by our fears, but anyone who has had success has failed before.
I guess they often cast me as the bad guy, because I'm not, er, conventional looking. I look sort of violent. I'm the odd one out, the outsider.
No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.
Women often postpone their lives, thinking that if they're not with a partner then it doesn't really count. They're still searching for their prince, in a way. And as much as we don't discuss that, because it's too embarrassing and too sad, I think it really does exist.
People often remark that I'm pretty lucky. Luck is only important in so far as getting the chance to sell yourself at the right moment. After that, you've got to have talent and know how to use it.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
