Rarely do great beauty and great virtue dwell together.- Petrarch

That is the saving grace of humor, if you fail no one is laughing at you.- A. Whitney Brown

I find nothing more depressing than optimism.- Paul Fussell

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.- Albert Einstein

To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost.- Gustave Flaubert

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.- Martin Luther King Jr.

I am free of all prejudice. I hate everyone equally.- W. C. Fields

To love deeply in one direction makes us more loving in all others.- Anne-Sophie Swetchine

Whatever you can do or dream
you can, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power
and magic in it....(Goethe)

It is delightful to fall in love with
one person, just imagine what it is
like to fall in love with everyone.
(Eknath Easwaran)

I intend to feel good.......Dr Wayne W.Dyer

When you think thoughts that are in-spirit, they relfect
a vibrational alignement
that moves you in the right direction.
But if you begin observing
your thoughts and realize
that you're going in the wrong direction,
you can make a U-turn with New thoughts......Dr Wayne W.Dyer

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

Some of my favorite Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes:

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. ... Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

"On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' And Vanity comes along and asks the question, 'Is it popular?' But Conscience asks the question 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right."

"It is no longer a choice between violence and nonviolence in this world; it's nonviolence or nonexistence."

I love these, especially the second one. I had been thinking about this very issue early this morning in relation to the idea that war is nobel.
