Louise J. Kaplan

Edgar Allan Poe

I am neither bitter nor cynical but I do wish there was less immaturity in political thinking.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
How I wish we lived in a time when laws were not necessary to safeguard us from discrimination.
We must respect the past, and mistrust the present, if we wish to provide for the safety of the future.
Try to keep your soul always in peace and quiet, always ready for whatever our Lord may wish to work in you. It is certainly a higher virtue of the soul, and a greater grace, to be able to enjoy the Lord in different times and different places than in only one.
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
Always leave something to wish for; otherwise you will be miserable from your very happiness.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
