Quote of the Day

I do believe that any successful business starts from the top and works its way down.
I get up at 7:30 and work four hours a day. Nine to twelve in the morning, five to six in the evening. Businessmen would achieve better results if they studied human metabolism. No one works well eight hours a day. No one ought to work more than four hours.
I feel genius in great works of art. I have seen medical cures that science can't explain, some seemingly triggered by faith. The same is true of millions of other people.
I guess that's one of the reasons that you do it - work all the time - because it's sort of a high to find something that really works.
Genius begins great works; labor alone finishes them.
Most works of art, like most wines, ought to be consumed in the district of their fabrication.
In dreams the truth is learned that all good works are done in the absence of a caress.
In science, read, by preference, the newest works; in literature, the oldest. The classic literature is always modern.
Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Love works not for profit nor reward; yet God has ordained that great gain shall be the certain result of every labor of love.
Ellen G. White
I want to tell any young girl out there who's a geek, I was a really serious geek in high school. It works out. Study harder.
All works of art are commissioned in the sense that no artist can create one by a simple act of will but must wait until what he believes to be a good idea for a work comes to him.
W. H. Auden
To write the lives of the great in separating them from their works necessarily ends by above all stressing their pettiness, because it is in their work that they have put the best of themselves.
Until the 20th century it was generally assumed that a writer had said what he had to say in his works.
Satan works through human agents.
Ezra Taft Benson
There's different kinds of laughs. It's like a baseball lineup: this guy's your power hitter, this guy gets on base, this guy works out walks. If everybody does their job, we're gonna win.
I have been told by hospital authorities that more copies of my works are left behind by departing patients than those of any other author.
It's not at all good when your cancer is 'palpable' from the outside. Especially when, as at this stage, they didn't even know where the primary source was. Carcinoma works cunningly from the inside out. Detection and treatment often work more slowly and gropingly, from the outside in.
But if I were to say who influenced me most, then I'd say Franz Kafka. And his works were always anchored in the Central European region.
I think most people are inherently interested in how their brain works, in what makes them tick.
Comedy always works best when it is mean-spirited.
Our works, whatever they may be, derive from our incapacity to kill or to kill ourselves.
Emile M. Cioran
Many works of the ancients have become fragments. Many works of the moderns are fragments at the time of their origin.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
I think half the people who get married now have met online. If I think about all the people in my life who married - they met online, online, online. And it makes sense if you think about it, because you fill out this form of 35 things that really define you and - bam - look, you've got two people who match. It works.
In the future, you won't buy artists' works; you'll buy software that makes original pieces of 'their' works, or that recreates their way of looking at things. You could buy a Shostakovich box, or you could buy a Brahms box. You might want some Shostakovich slow-movement-like music to be generated. So then you use that box.
The state security bodies should not be seen as an institution that works against society and the state; one needs to understand what makes them work against their own people.
C. S. Lewis
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
