You know how advice is. You only want it if it agrees with what you wanted to do anyway.
Life is like a landscape. You live in the midst of it but can describe it only from the vantage point of distance.
Even today we raise our hand against our brother... We have perfected our weapons, our conscience has fallen asleep, and we have sharpened our ideas to justify ourselves as if it were normal we continue to sow destruction, pain, death. Violence and war lead only to death.
Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.
Pope Paul VI
There is only one difference between a madman and me. The madman thinks he is sane. I know I am mad.
There are only three things women need in life: food, water, and compliments.
There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
Surround yourself with only people who are going to lift you higher.
The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success.
It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be.
As a surgeon you have to have a controlled arrogance. If it's uncontrolled, you kill people, but you have to be pretty arrogant to saw through a person's chest, take out their heart and believe you can fix it. Then, when you succeed and the patient survives, you pray, because it's only by the grace of God that you get there.
We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another.
Luciano De Crescenzo

Harold S. Geneen
Society exists only as a mental concept; in the real world there are only individuals.
Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.
During the Cold War, America undertook serious military cuts only once: after the election of Richard Nixon, during the Vietnam War. The result: Vietnam fell to the Communists, the Russians moved into Afghanistan, and American influence around the globe waned dramatically.
When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and you argue about what to do about it only after you have had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
The military might of a country represents its national strength. Only when it builds up its military might in every way can it develop into a thriving country.
Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.
I think we judge talent wrong. What do we see as talent? I think I have made the same mistake myself. We judge talent by people's ability to strike a cricket ball. The sweetness, the timing. That's the only thing we see as talent. Things like determination, courage, discipline, temperament, these are also talent.
Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.
Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect.
A miracle is really the only way to describe motherhood and giving birth. It's unbelievable how God has made us women and babies to endure and be able to do so much. A miracle, indeed. Such an incredible blessing.
Dealing with backstabbers, there was one thing I learned. They're only powerful when you got your back turned.
The only real security is not in owning or possessing, not in demanding or expecting, not in hoping, even. Security in a relationship lies neither in looking back to what it was, nor forward to what it might be, but living in the present and accepting it as it is now.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
