Nonviolence is fine as long as it works.
I have all the tools and gadgets. I tell my son, who's a producer, 'You never work for the machine; the machine works for you.'
I like globalization; I want to say it works, but it is hard to say that when six hundred million people are slipping backwards.
I am the first one to go to university in my family. I am the first writer as well. My dad is a retired policeman, and my mom works for a glass-processing company. She is health-and-safety manager, and my stepfather is a plumber. I have four half siblings, one from my mom's marriage and three from my dad's marriage, so we are kind of scattered.
Do all things without grumbling. Why? You have a sovereign God who is on your side, who works everything together for your good.
If you want to accomplish something in the world, idealism is not enough - you need to choose a method that works to achieve the goal.
Management by objective works - if you know the objectives. Ninety percent of the time you don't.
It's a poor sort of memory that only works backwards.

Laura Ingalls Wilder
Sanctification is that inward spiritual work which the Lord Jesus Christ works in a man by the Holy Spirit when He calls him to be a true believer. He not only washes him from his sins in His own blood, but He also separates him from his natural love of sin and the world, puts a new principle in his heart and makes him practically godly in life.
J. C. Ryle

What works for men does not always work for women, because success and likability are positively correlated for men and negatively correlated for women. That's what the research shows. As a man gets more successful, everyone is rooting for him. As a woman gets more successful, both men and women like her less.
Lying about anything is the cruelest thing in the world you could ever do. Be who you are. Don't try to be someone you're not. It never works.

For almost all students, a liberal arts education works in subtle ways to create a web of knowledge that will illumine problems and enlighten judgment on innumerable occasions in later life.
I always see the absurdity in most situations. It's my experience of how life works.
The only things in my life that compatibly exists with this grand universe are the creative works of the human spirit.
Works of art, in my opinion, are the only objects in the material universe to possess internal order, and that is why, though I don't believe that only art matters, I do believe in Art for Art's sake.
E. M. Forster
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
