It's like driving a car at night. You never see further than your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.
E. L. Doctorow
History demonstrates that previous military drawdowns invited aggression by our enemies. After World War I, America drew down forces until the U.S. Army had fewer than 100,000 men in uniform. That weakness invited Nazi aggression in Europe and the imperial Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.
Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion - it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.
Silence is better than unmeaning words.
It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.
Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.
Marian Wright Edelman
We fear violence less than our own feelings. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict.
Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.
Things that I grew up with stay with me. You start a certain way, and then you spend your whole life trying to find a certain simplicity that you had. It's less about staying in childhood than keeping a certain spirit of seeing things in a different way.
Clear thinking requires courage rather than intelligence.
I do not want art for a few any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.
Better a little which is well done, than a great deal imperfectly.
We have the character of an island nation: independent, forthright, passionate in defence of our sovereignty. We can no more change this British sensibility than we can drain the English Channel. And because of this sensibility, we come to the European Union with a frame of mind that is more practical than emotional.
Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.
Sadly, it's much easier to create a desert than a forest.
Concern yourself more with accepting responsibility than with assigning blame. Let the possibilities inspire you more than the obstacles discourage you.
A good team, like a good show, comes into being when the separate individuals working together create, in essence, another separate higher entity - the team - the show - which is better than any of those individuals can ever be on their own.
Gary David Goldberg
When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can only have peace of mind when I forgive rather than judge.
An intellectual is a person who's found one thing that's more interesting than sex.
If you have one true friend you have more than your share.
For prayer is nothing else than being on terms of friendship with God.
Saint Teresa of Avila
I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family - and I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.
I try to keep in my mind the simple question: Am I trying to do good or make myself look good? Too many of our responsibilities get added to our plate when we are trying to please people, impress people, prove ourselves, acquire power, increase our prestige. All those motivations are about looking good more than doing good.
What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
There's nothing worse than being disappointed in somebody.
John F. Kennedy
