Better to fight for something than live for nothing.
George S. Patton
Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish? Nothing else.
Start with what is right rather than what is acceptable.
I remain just one thing, and one thing only, and that is a clown. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician.
No amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.
You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The only thing better than singing is more singing.
When you give yourself, you receive more than you give.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Friendship marks a life even more deeply than love. Love risks degenerating into obsession, friendship is never anything but sharing.
It's better to hang out with people better than you. Pick out associates whose behavior is better than yours and you'll drift in that direction.
Rather be dead than cool.
The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
John Stuart Mill
There is no lonelier man in death, except the suicide, than that man who has lived many years with a good wife and then outlived her. If two people love each other there can be no happy end to it.
Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which afflicts most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives.
I think long-lasting, healthy relationships are more important than the idea of marriage. At the root of every successful marriage is a strong partnership.
Here's a news flash: No soldier gives his life. That's not the way it works. Most soldiers who make a conscious decision to place themselves in harm's way do it to protect their buddies. They do it because of the bonds of friendship - and it goes so much deeper than friendship.
There's nothing more important than our good health - that's our principal capital asset.
The leading cause of death for girls 15 to 19 worldwide is not accident or violence or disease; it is complications from pregnancy. Girls under 15 are up to five times as likely to die while having children than are women in their 20s, and their babies are more likely to die as well.
Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.
Management is nothing more than motivating other people.
Perhaps nothing helps us make the movement from our little selves to a larger world than remembering God in gratitude. Such a perspective puts God in view in all of life, not just in the moments we set aside for worship or spiritual disciplines. Not just in the moments when life seems easy.
Concern yourself more with accepting responsibility than with assigning blame. Let the possibilities inspire you more than the obstacles discourage you.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
