Quote of the Day
- Page 9
It's so important to keep a marriage alive with small treats and doing little things for each other. Just remembering to say nice things and to have listening time is vital. That ghastly phrase 'quality time' means taking three minutes to sit down and be still with someone rather than yelling over your shoulder as you rush out.
When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?
When you have vision it affects your attitude. Your attitude is optimistic rather than pessimistic.
Charles R. Swindoll
I would rather discover one true cause than gain the kingdom of Persia.
Nothing is work unless you'd rather be doing something else.
If I go on a diet and work out, I'm always in a bad mood. I'd rather be a little heavier but nice.
When you slip on a banana peel, people laugh at you; but when you tell people you slipped on a banana peel, it's your laugh. So you become the hero rather than the victim of the joke.
I've been married twice. Most women would rather not be married to a traveling blues singer.
B. B. King
The greatness of America lies not in being more enlightened than any other nation, but rather in her ability to repair her faults.
Alexis de Tocqueville
The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.
It's not that the Irish are cynical. It's rather that they have a wonderful lack of respect for everything and everybody.
I would rather lose in a cause that will some day win, than win in a cause that will some day lose.
The truth is I love being alive. And I love feeling free. So if I can't have those things then I feel like a caged animal and I'd rather not be in a cage. I'd rather be dead. And it's real simple. And I think it's not that uncommon.
Honest good humor is the oil and wine of a merry meeting, and there is no jovial companionship equal to that where the jokes are rather small and laughter abundant.
We have no reason to think that climate change is harmful if you look at the world as a whole. Most places, in fact, are better off being warmer than being colder. And historically, the really bad times for the environment and for people have been the cold periods rather than the warm periods.
Most of the mistakes in thinking are inadequacies of perception rather than mistakes of logic.
Edward de Bono
I would rather be adorned by beauty of character than jewels. Jewels are the gift of fortune, while character comes from within.
Life flies by, and it's easy to get lost in the blur. In adolescence, it's 'How do I fit in?' In your 20s, it's 'What do I want to do?' In your 30s, 'Is this what I'm meant to do?' I think the trick is living the questions. Not worrying so much about what's ahead but rather sitting in the grey area - being OK with where you are.
I would rather be beaten, and be a man, than to be elected and be a little puppy dog.
The Vietnam War required us to emphasize the national interest rather than abstract principles. What President Nixon and I tried to do was unnatural. And that is why we didn't make it.
Henry A. Kissinger
If I hold back, I'm no good. I'm no good. I'd rather be good sometimes, than holding back all the time.
I had rather excel others in the knowledge of what is excellent, than in the extent of my power and dominion.
Alexander the Great
Friendships are discovered rather than made.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
I don't think of myself as unbreakable. Perhaps I'm just rather flexible and adaptable.
Aung San Suu Kyi
We too often bind ourselves by authorities rather than by the truth.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
