When freedom does not have a purpose, when it does not wish to know anything about the rule of law engraved in the hearts of men and women, when it does not listen to the voice of conscience, it turns against humanity and society.
Pope John Paul II
The wish to acquire more is admittedly a very natural and common thing; and when men succeed in this they are always praised rather than condemned. But when they lack the ability to do so and yet want to acquire more at all costs, they deserve condemnation for their mistakes.
Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish, but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.
I wish I had played team sports. I think every kid should. Teamwork builds character - teaches people about leadership and cooperation.
We have a long way to go before we are able to hear the voices of everyone on earth, but I believe that providing voices and building bridges is essential for the World Peace we all wish for.
I'm not resigned, but I'm realistic too. The statistics in my case are very poor. Not many people come through esophageal cancer and live to talk about it, or not for long. And the other wager is, the part of the wager, it's a certainty you'll have a terrible time and you may wish you were dying because it's an awful process.
My weaknesses... I wish I could come up with something. I'd probably have the same pause if you asked me what my strengths are. Maybe they're the same thing.

Let us act on what we have, since we have not what we wish.
John Henry Newman
If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.
Edgar Allan Poe
I wish all teenagers can filter through songs instead of turning to drugs and alcohol.
The Bible tells us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Surely part of loving in this way is trying to understand what another person wants us to understand. I may not understand perfectly and I may not agree, but if I love you I should try to know what it is you wish I could know.
I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm's way.
John Paul Jones
I do not know what the spirit of a philosopher could more wish to be than a good dancer. For the dance is his ideal, also his fine art, finally also the only kind of piety he knows, his 'divine service.'

Sometimes I wish my first word was 'quote,' so that on my death bed, my last words could be 'end quote.'
The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.

William R. Alger
We all wish to live. We all seek a world in which men are freed of the burdens of ignorance, poverty, hunger and disease. And we shall all be hard-pressed to escape the deadly rain of nuclear fall-out should catastrophe overtake us.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
