Event Quotations

Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul. - Thomas Merton
Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul.
Thomas Merton

When people endure a traumatic event, they are either defeated or made stronger. On Sept. 11, I told New Yorkers, 'I want you to emerge stronger from this.' My words were partially a hope and partially an observation that people in New York City handle big things better than little things. I could not be more proud of the way my city responded.
Rudy Giuliani

Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.
Brian Tracy

Our lives are structured by our memories of events. Event X happened just before the big Paris vacation. I was doing Y in the first summer after I learned to drive. Z happened the weekend after I landed my first job. We remember events by positioning them in time relative to other events.
Joshua Foer

No event in American history is more misunderstood than the Vietnam War. It was misreported then, and it is misremembered now.
Richard M. Nixon
