Every beauty which is seen here by persons of perception resembles more than anything else that celestial source from which we all are come.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ah! How neatly tied, in these people, is the umbilical cord of morality! Since they left their mothers they have never sinned, have they? They are apostles, they are the descendants of priests; one can only wonder from what source they draw their indignation, and above all how much they have pocketed to do this, and in any case what it has done for them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The earth seemed to move with me. I found a new source of power and beauty, a source I never knew existed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For the perfect idler, for the passionate observer it becomes an immense source of enjoyment to establish his dwelling in the throng, in the ebb and flow, the bustle, the fleeting and the infinite. To be away from home and yet to feel at home anywhere; to see the world, to be at the very center of the world, and yet to be unseen of the world, such are some of the minor pleasures of those independent, intense and impartial spirits, who do not lend themselves easily to linguistic definitions. The observer is a prince enjoying his incognito wherever he goes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The being who, for most men, is the source of the most lively, and even, be it said, to the shame of philosophical delights, the most lasting joys; the being towards or for whom all their efforts tend for whom and by whom fortunes are made and lost; for whom, but especially by whom, artists and poets compose their most delicate jewels; from whom flow the most enervating pleasures and the most enriching sufferings -- woman, in a word, is not, for the artist in general... only the female of the human species. She is rather a divinity, a star.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The art and science of asking questions is the source of all knowledge.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Well, Fitz, I looked all through that bible, it was in very fine print and stumbling on that great book Ecclesiastics, read it aloud to all who would listen. Soon I was alone and began cursing the bloody bible because there were no titles in it -- although I found the source of practically every good title you ever heard of. But the boys, principally Kipling, had been there before me and swiped all the good ones so I called the book Men Without Women hoping it would have a large sale among the fairies and old Vassar Girls.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thought is the original source of all wealth, all success, all material gain, all great discoveries and inventions, and of all achievement.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Gluttony is the source of all our infirmities and the fountain of all our diseases. As fire extinguished by an excess of fuel, so is the natural health of the body destroyed by an intemperate diet.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no such source of error as the pursuit of truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Egotism is the source and summary of all faults and miseries.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The source of our actions resides in an unconscious propensity to regard ourselves as the center, the cause, and the conclusion of time. Our reflexes and our pride transform into a planet the parcel of flesh and consciousness we are.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is very difficult to be wholly joyous or wholly sad on this earth. The comic, when it is human, soon takes upon itself a face of pain; and some of our grieves... have their source in weaknesses which must be recognized with smiling compassion as the common inheritance of us all.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary; men alone are quite capable of every wickedness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By recognizing a favorable opinion of yourself, and taking pleasure in it, you in a measure give yourself and your peace of mind into the keeping of another, of whose attitude you can never be certain. You have a new source of doubt and apprehension.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only source of knowledge is experience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be unselfish. That is the first and final commandment for those who would be useful and happy in their usefulness. If you think of yourself only, you cannot develop because you are choking the source of development, which is spiritual expansion through thought for others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We are threatened with suffering from three directions: from our own body, which is doomed to decay and dissolution and which cannot even do without pain and anxiety as warning signals; from the external world, which may rage against us with overwhelming and merciless forces of destruction; and finally from our relations to other men. The suffering which comes from this last source is perhaps more painful than any other.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The true source of cheerfulness is benevolence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

As soon as man began considering himself the source of the highest meaning in the world and the measure of everything, the world began to lose its human dimension, and man began to lose control of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Youth, abundant wealth, high birth, and inexperience, are, each of them a source of ruin. What then must be the fate of those in whom all four are combined.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There often seems to be a playfulness to wise people, as if either their equanimity has as its source this playfulness or the playfulness flows from the equanimity; and they can persuade other people who are in a state of agitation to calm down and manage a smile.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Fear comes from uncertainty. When we are absolutely certain, whether of our worth or worthlessness, we are almost impervious to fear. Thus a feeling of utter unworthiness can be a source of courage.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the child in man that is the source of his uniqueness and creativeness, and the playground is the optimal milieu for the unfolding of his capacities and talents.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Good sense is both the first principal and the parent source of good writing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The sensual and spiritual are linked together by a mysterious bond, sensed by our emotions, though hidden from our eyes. To this double nature of the visible and invisible world -- to the profound longing for the latter, coupled with the feeling of the sweet necessity for the former, we owe all sound and logical systems of philosophy, truly based on the immutable principles of our nature, just as from the same source arise the most senseless enthusiasms.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The separation of church and state is a source of strength, but the conscience of our nation does not call for separation between men of state and faith in the Supreme Being.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The men who have guided the destiny of the United States have found the strength for their tasks by going to their knees. This private unity of public men and their God is an enduring source of reassurance for the people of America.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The source of all life and knowledge is in man and woman, and the source of all living is in the interchange and the meeting and mingling of these two: man-life and woman-life, man-knowledge and woman-knowledge, man-being and woman-being.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Private property was the original source of freedom. It still is its main ballpark.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The dream of reason produces monsters. Imagination deserted by reason creates impossible, useless thoughts. United with reason, imagination is the mother of all art and the source of all its beauty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Anti-Semitism is a horrible disease from which nobody is immune, and it has a kind of evil fascination that makes an enlightened person draw near the source of infection, supposedly in a scientific spirit, but really to sniff the vapors and dally with the possibility.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Life moves on, whether we act as cowards or heroes. Life has no other discipline to impose, if we would but realize it, than to accept life unquestioningly. Everything we shut our eyes to, everything we run away from, everything we deny, denigrate or despise, serves to defeat us in the end. What seems nasty, painful, evil, can become a source of beauty, joy, and strength, if faced with an open mind. Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The main source of our wealth is goodness. The affections and the generous qualities that God admires in a world full of greed.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Thoughts give birth to a creative force that is neither elemental nor sidereal. Thoughts create a new heaven, a new firmament, a new source of energy, from which new arts flow. When a man undertakes to create something, he establishes a new heaven.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For light I go directly to the Source of light, not to any of the reflections.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the world of knowledge, the essential Form of Good is the limit of our inquiries, and can barely be perceived; but, when perceived, we cannot help concluding that it is in every case the source of all that is bright and beautiful --in the visible world giving birth to light and its master, and in the intellectual world dispensing, immediately and with full authority, truth and reason --and that whosoever would act wisely, either in private or in public, must set this Form of Good before his eyes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Success by the laws of competition signifies a victory over others by obtaining the direction and profits of their work. This is the real source of all great riches.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The creative person, the person who moves from an irrational source of power, has to face the fact that this power antagonizes. Under all the superficial praise of the creative is the desire to kill. It is the old war between the mystic and the nonmystic, a war to the death.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no such thing as chance; and what seem to us merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Knowledge is the most democratic source of power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In quiet and untroubled times it seems to every administrator that it is only by his efforts that the whole population under his rule is kept going, and in this consciousness of being indispensable every administrator finds the chief reward of his labor and efforts. While the sea of history remains calm the ruler-administrator in his frail bark, holding on with a boat hook to the ship of the people and himself moving, naturally imagines that his efforts move the ship he is holding on to. But as soon as a storm arises and the sea begins to heave and the ship to move, such a delusion is no longer possible. The ship moves independently with its own enormous motion, the boat hook no longer reaches the moving vessel, and suddenly the administrator, instead of appearing a ruler and a source of power, becomes an insignificant, useless, feeble man.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

As Plato sometimes speaks of the divine love, it arises not out of indigency, as created love does, but out of fullness and redundancy; it is an overflowing fountain, and that love which descends upon created being is a free efflux from the almighty source of love; and it is well pleasing to him that those creatures which he hath made should partake of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Have a deep respect for the source of life and also for the ocean, for the forest, for the stars and for the truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Technology is the drug of choice for most Americans. Source unknown Theory: when you have ideas. Ideology: when ideas have you.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
