Women and foxes, being weak, are distinguished by superior tact.

~~~~~~~

Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is mystery, Today is yours.

~~~~~~~

You are not in the body you are in. You are not in the mind you are in. You are not the possessions you have. Stay in a constant state of gratitude. You cannot solve a problem by condemning it. When you use shame you are using the lowest energy in the universe. Play the match game. Am I matched up with the field of intention. Meditate. You cannot divide God. You cannot divide silence. Everything else comes in dichotomy.

~~~~~~~

You are only as strong as your purpose, therefore let us choose reasons to act that are big bold righteous and eternal.

~~~~~~~

You can come to understand your purpose in life by slowing down and feeling your heart’s desires.

~~~~~~~

You can secularize a state but you can’t necessarily take religious intolerance out of its people.

~~~~~~~

You cannot describe it or draw it. You cannot praise it enough or perceive it. No place can be found in which to put the Original Face; it will not disappear even when the universe is destroyed.

~~~~~~~

You can’t get spoiled if you do your own ironing.

~~~~~~~

You can’t lead a cavalry if you think that you look funny riding a horse.

~~~~~~~

Where annual elections end, there slavery begins.

~~~~~~~

Where is it written in the Constitution, in what article or section is it contained, that you may take children from their parents and parents from their children, and compel them to fight the battles of any war in which the folly and wickedness of the government may engage itself? Under what concealment has this power lain hidden, which now for the first time comes forth, with a tremendous and baleful aspect, to trample down and destroy the dearest right of personal liberty? Who will show me any Constitutional injunction which makes it the duty of the American people to surrender everything valuable in life, and even life, itself, whenever the purposes of an ambitious and mischievous government may require it? … A free government with an uncontrolled power of military conscription is the most ridiculous and abominable contradiction and nonsense that ever entered into the heads of men.

~~~~~~~

Whether it was work, marriage, or family, I’ve always been a late bloomer.

~~~~~~~

While one should always study the method of a great artist, one should never imitate his manner. The manner of an artist is essentially individual, the method of an artist is absolutely universal.

Who lined himself with hope, Eating the air on promise of supply. King Henry IV. Part II. Act i. Sc. 2.

~~~~~~~

Willful waste brings woeful want.

~~~~~~~

Winning tastes good.

~~~~~~~

Wishing somebody success is not what makes the person succeed; but when the person knows what to do and does what he knows.

~~~~~~~

Wit and Humor — if any difference, it is in duration — lightning and electric light. Same material, apparently; but one is vivid, and can do damage — the other fools along and enjoys elaboration.

~~~~~~~

Wit is brushwood; judgment timber; the one gives the greatest flame, and the other yields the most durable heat; and both meeting make the best fire.

~~~~~~~

Wit is the only wall between us and the dark.

~~~~~~~

With bag and baggage. As You Like It. Act iii. Sc. 2.

~~~~~~~

With his tactics in the House, Tom Delay is now Lord of the Flies (this quote has 2 parents.. 1 of whom was anonymously cited in a New York paper today).

~~~~~~~

Woman is a scorpion whose grip is sweet.- Hazrat Ali

We have to look at our own inertia, insecurities, selfhate, fear that, in truth, we have nothing valuable to say. When your writing blooms out of the back of this garbage compost, it is very stable. You are not running from anything. You can have a sense of artistic security. If you are not afraid of the voices inside you, you will not fear the critics outside you.

~~~~~~~

We honour the illustrious dead best by following their example.

~~~~~~~

We must not discriminate between things. Where things are concerned there are no class distinctions. We must pick out what is good for us where we can find it.

~~~~~~~

We waste our lights in vain, like lamps by day.

~~~~~~~

We were that generation called silent, but we were silent neither, as some thought, because we shared the period’s official optimism nor, as others thought, because we feared its official repression. We were silent because the exhilaration of social action seemed to many of us just one more way of escaping the personal, of masking for a while that dread of the meaningless which was man’s fate.

~~~~~~~

We will answer all things faithfully. The Merchant of Venice. Act. v. Sc. 1.

~~~~~~~

Wealth converts a strange land into homeland and poverty turns a native place into a strange land.- Hazrat Ali

~~~~~~~

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from. T.S. Eliot quotes

~~~~~~~

When some one is least interested to listen ‘u”its because dat person is least interested to tell u..

~~~~~~~

When some other comes close to ‘u’..Some closest to ‘u’ goes away’. from ‘u’

~~~~~~~

When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.

~~~~~~~

When you start thinking your true identity is what people think about you, you loose your true sense of value.

~~~~~~~

Undesirable circumstances are the consequences of bad mistakes but life is full of change and decisions. Do not forget it only takes one person to make a decision to change the world. Living life in undesirable situations is the result of regretting life itself and time never stops to fix our mistakes. Do not give up time for mistakes; instead make a change for you to prepare for the right decisions.

~~~~~~~

Union may be strength, but it is mere blind brute strength unless wisely directed.

~~~~~~~

‘Tis not the many oaths that make the truth; But the plain single vow, that is vow’d true.

~~~~~~~

To gild refined gold, to paint the lily, To throw a perfume on the violet, To smooth the ice, or add another hue Unto the rainbow, or with taper-light To seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, Is wasteful and ridiculous excess. King John. Act iv. Sc. 2.

~~~~~~~

To me a book is a message from the gods to mankind; or, if not, should never be published at all. A message from the gods should be delivered at once. It is damnably blasphemous to talk about the autumn season and so on. How dare the author or publisher demand a price for doing his duty, the highest and most honorable to which a man can be called?

~~~~~~~

To me the worst thing seems to be a school principally to work with methods of fear, force and artificial authority. Such treatment destroys the sound sentiments, the sincerity and the self-confidence of pupils and produces a subservient subject. Albert Einstein quotes

Tongue is a beast, if it is let loose, it devours.- Hazrat Ali

~~~~~~~

Train everyone lavishly, you can’t overspend on training.

Twenty or thirty years ago, in the army, we had a lot of obscure adventures, and years later we tell them at parties, and suddenly we realize that those two very difficult years of our lives have become lumped together into a few episodes that have lodged in our memory in a standardized form, and are always told in a standardized way, in the same words. But in fact that lump of memories has nothing whatsoever to do with our experience of those two years in the army and what it has made of us.

They have always taught and trained you to believe it to be your patriotic duty to go to war and to have yourselves slaughtered at their command.

When people, just people, stop thinking of the United Nations as a weird Picasso abstraction, and see it as a drawing they made themselves.

~~~~~~~

The Vain Jackdaw Jupiter determined, it is said, to create a sovereign over the birds, and made proclamation that on a certain day they should all present themselves before him, when he would himself choose the most beautiful among them to be king. The Jackdaw, knowing his own ugliness, searched through the woods and fields, and collected the feathers which had fallen from the wings of his companions, and stuck them in all parts of his body, hoping thereby to make himself the most beautiful of all. When the appointed day arrived, and the birds had assembled before Jupiter, the Jackdaw also made his appearance in his many feathered finery. But when Jupiter proposed to make him king because of the beauty of his plumage, the birds indignantly protested, and each plucked from him his own feathers, leaving the Jackdaw nothing but a Jackdaw.

~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~

The white youth of today have begun to react to the fact that the American Way of Life is a fossil of history. What do they care if their old baldheaded and crew-cut elders don’t dig their caveman mops? They couldn’t care less about the old, stiff-assed honkies who don’t like their new dances: Frog, Monkey, Jerk, Swim, Watusi. All they know is that it feels good to swing to way-out body-rhythms instead of dragging across the dance floor like zombies to the dead beat of mind-smothered Mickey Mouse music.

~~~~~~~

The winner has always a plan but the loser has always an excuse.

~~~~~~~

The wiser a man is, the less talkative will he be.- Hazrat Ali

~~~~~~~

The Wolf and the Crane A WOLF who had a bone stuck in his throat hired a Crane, for a large sum, to put her head into his mouth and draw out the bone. When the Crane had extracted the bone and demanded the promised payment, the Wolf, grinning and grinding his teeth, exclaimed: Why, you have surely already had a sufficient recompense, in having been permitted to draw out your head in safety from the mouth and jaws of a wolf. In serving the wicked, expect no reward, and be thankful if you escape injury for your pains.

~~~~~~~

The Wolf and the Lamb WOLF, meeting with a Lamb astray from the fold, resolved not to lay violent hands on him, but to find some plea to justify to the Lamb the Wolf’s right to eat him. He thus addressed him: Sirrah, last year you grossly insulted me. Indeed, bleated the Lamb in a mournful tone of voice, I was not then born. Then said the Wolf, You feed in my pasture. No, good sir, replied the Lamb, I have not yet tasted grass. Again said the Wolf, You drink of my well. No, exclaimed the Lamb, I never yet drank water, for as yet my mother’s milk is both food and drink to me. Upon which the Wolf seized him and ate him up, saying, Well! I won’t remain supperless, even though you refute every one of my imputations. The tyrant will always find a pretext for his tyranny.

~~~~~~~

The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing Once upon a time a Wolf resolved to disguise his appearance in order to secure food more easily. Encased in the skin of a sheep, he pastured with the flock deceiving the shepherd by his costume. In the evening he was shut up by the shepherd in the fold; the gate was closed, and the entrance made thoroughly secure. But the shepherd, returning to the fold during the night to obtain meat for the next day, mistakenly caught up the Wolf instead of a sheep, and killed him instantly. Harm seek. Harm find.

~~~~~~~

The Wolves and the Sheep Why should there always be this fear and slaughter between us? said the Wolves to the Sheep. Those evil-disposed Dogs have much to answer for. They always bark whenever we approach you and attack us before we have done any harm. If you would only dismiss them from your heels, there might soon be treaties of peace and reconciliation between us. The Sheep, poor silly creatures, were easily beguiled and dismissed the Dogs, whereupon the Wolves destroyed the unguarded flock at their own pleasure.

The Mischievous Dog A dog used to run up quietly to the heels of everyone he met, and to bite them without notice. His master suspended a bell about his neck so that the Dog might give notice of his presence wherever he went. Thinking it a mark of distinction, the Dog grew proud of his bell and went tinkling it all over the marketplace. One day an old hound said to him: Why do you make such an exhibition of yourself? That bell that you carry is not, believe me, any order of merit, but on the contrary a mark of disgrace, a public notice to all men to avoid you as an ill mannered dog. Notoriety is often mistaken for fame.

The Miser A miser sold all that he had and bought a lump of gold, which he buried in a hole in the ground by the side of an old wall and went to look at daily. One of his workmen observed his frequent visits to the spot and decided to watch his movements. He soon discovered the secret of the hidden treasure, and digging down, came to the lump of gold, and stole it. The Miser, on his next visit, found the hole empty and began to tear his hair and to make loud lamentations. A neighbor, seeing him overcome with grief and learning the cause, said, Pray do not grieve so; but go and take a stone, and place it in the hole, and fancy that the gold is still lying there. It will do you quite the same service; for when the gold was there, you had it not, as you did not make the slightest use of it.

The pure, mere love of God is that alone from which sinners are justly to expect that no sin will pass unpunished, but that His love will visit them with every calamity and distress that can help to break and purify the bestial heart of man and awaken in him true repentance and conversion to God. It is love alone in the holy Deity that will allow no peace to the wicked, nor ever cease its judgments till every sinner is forced to confess that it is good for him that he has been in trouble, and thankfully own that not the wrath but the love of God has plucked out that right eye, cut off that right band, which he ought to have done but would not do for himself and his own salvation.

The Salt Merchant and His Ass A peddler drove his Ass to the seashore to buy salt. His road home lay across a stream into which his Ass, making a false step, fell by accident and rose up again with his load considerably lighter, as the water melted the sack. The Peddler retraced his steps and refilled his panniers with a larger quantity of salt than before. When he came again to the stream, the Ass fell down on purpose in the same spot, and, regaining his feet with the weight of his load much diminished, brayed triumphantly as if he had obtained what he desired. The Peddler saw through his trick and drove him for the third time to the coast, where he bought a cargo of sponges instead of salt. The Ass, again playing the fool, fell down on purpose when he reached the stream, but the sponges became swollen with water, greatly increasing his load. And thus his trick recoiled on him, for he now carried on his back a double burden.
