often

It took me years to understand that words are often as important as experience, because words make experience last.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Great feelings will often take the aspect of error, and great faith the aspect of illusion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How often have I lain beneath rain on a strange roof, thinking of home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Books constitute capital. A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not, then, an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men, setting out in life, it is their only capital.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Death is as casual-and often as unexpected-as birth. It is as difficult to define grief as joy. Each is finite. Each will fade.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Weak arguments are often thrust before my path; but although they are most insubstantial, it is not easy to destroy them. There is not a more difficult feat known than to cut through a cushion with a sword.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He that knows little often repeats it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

I have often thought that if photography were difficult in the true sense of the term -- meaning that the creation of a simple photograph would entail as much time and effort as the production of a good watercolor or etching -- there would be a vast improvement in total output. The sheer ease with which we can produce a superficial image often leads to creative disaster.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is not any present moment that is unconnected with some future one. The life of every man is a continued chain of incidents, each link of which hangs upon the former. The transition from cause to effect, from event to event, is often carried on by secret steps, which our foresight cannot divine, and our sagacity is unable to trace. Evil may at some future period bring forth good; and good may bring forth evil, both equally unexpected.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The truth is often a terrible weapon of aggression. It is possible to lie, and even to murder, for the truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We often give our enemies the means for our own destruction.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Men often applaud an imitation and hiss the real thing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We climb to heaven most often on the ruins of our cherished plans, finding our failures were successes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A molehill man is a pseudo-busy executive who comes to work at 9 am and finds a molehill on his desk. He has until 5 p.m. to make this molehill into a mountain. An accomplished molehill man will often have his mountain finished before lunch.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We should be lenient in our judgment, because often the mistakes of others would have been ours had we had the opportunity to make them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief, than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Between flattery and admiration there often flows a river of contempt.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Enthusiasms, like stimulants, are often affected by people with small mental ballast.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If experience has established any one thing in this world, it has established this: that it is well for any great class and description of men in society to be able to say for itself what it wants, and not to have other classes, the so-called educated and intelligent classes, acting for it as its proctors, and supposed to understand its wants and to provide for them. A class of men may often itself not either fully understand its wants, or adequately express them; but it has a nearer interest and a more sure diligence in the matter than any of its proctors, and therefore a better chance of success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have often wondered how it is everyone loves himself more than the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than the opinions of others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Quarrels often arise in marriages when the bridal gifts are excessive.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Surprises are foolish things. The pleasure is not enhanced and the inconvenience is often considerable.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is often said that men are ruled by their imaginations; but it would be truer to say they are governed by the weakness of their imaginations.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our law very often reminds one of those outskirts of cities where you cannot for a long time tell how the streets come to wind about in so capricious and serpent-like a manner. At last it strikes you that they grew up, house by house, on the devious tracks of the old green lanes; and if you follow on to the existing fields, you may often find the change half complete.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The worst men often give the best advice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The attainment of an ideal is often the beginning of a disillusion.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Suspicion is far more to be wrong than right; more often unjust than just. It is no friend to virtue, and always an enemy to happiness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have to confess that I had gambled on my soul and lost it with heroic insouciance and lightness of touch. The soul is so impalpable, so often useless, and sometimes such a nuisance, that I felt no more emotion on losing it than if, on a stroll, I had mislaid my visiting card.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Decisiveness is often the art of timely cruelty.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
How many young hearts have revealed the fact that what they had been trained to imagine the highest earthly felicity was but the beginning of care, disappointment, and sorrow, and often led to the extremity of mental and physical suffering.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing dies so hard, or rallies so often as intolerance.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A kind and compassionate act is often its own reward.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We find the most terrible form of atheism, not in the militant and passionate struggle against the idea of God himself, but in the practical atheism of everyday living, in indifference and torpor. We often encounter these forms of atheism among those who are formally Christians.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Post-modernism has cut off the present from all futures. The daily media add to this by cutting off the past. Which means that critical opinion is often orphaned in the present.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In science as in love, too much concentration on technique can often lead to impotence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Success is often the result of taking a misstep in the right direction.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Lack of opportunity is often nothing more than lack of purpose or directionMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no doubt that God has often brought a certain verse to the attention of one of His children in an unusual and almost miraculous manner, for a special need, but the Word was never intended to be consulted in a superstitious manner.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When a man gets talking about himself, he seldom fails to be eloquent and often reaches the sublime.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Reason often makes mistakes, but conscience never does.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Too often the shortcut, the line of least resistance, is responsible for evanescent and unsatisfactory success.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Very often we are our own worst enemy as we foolishly build stumbling blocks on the path that leads to success and happiness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Greatest fools are the most often satisfied.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul. It is not easy. You have to resist the demands of the work-oriented, often defensive, element in your psyche that measures life only in terms of output -- how much you produce -- not in terms of the quality of your life experiences. To be a soulful person means to go against all the pervasive, prove-yourself values of our culture and instead treasure what is unique and internal and valuable in yourself and your own personal evolution.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In our world of big names, curiously, our true heroes tend to be anonymous. In this life of illusion and quasi-illusion, the person of solid virtues who can be admired for something more substantial than his well-knownness often proves to be the unsung hero: the teacher, the nurse, the mother, the honest cop, the hard worker at lonely, underpaid, unglamorous, unpublicized jobs.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A sign of celebrity is often that their name is worth more than their services.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The difference between greatness and mediocrity is often how an individual views a mistake...More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Violence in the voice is often only the death rattle of reason in the throat.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is by a wise economy of nature that those who suffer without change, and whom no one can help, become uninteresting. Yet so it may happen that those who need sympathy the most often attract it the least.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
One said of suicide, As long as one has brains one should not blow them out. And another answered, But when one has ceased to have them, too often one cannot.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Satire is often the reflection of a kind of moral nausea.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
By the worldly standards of public life, all scholars in their work are of course oddly virtuous. They do not make wild claims, they do not cheat, they do not try to persuade at any cost, they appeal neither to prejudice nor to authority, they are often frank about their ignorance, their disputes are fairly decorous, they do not confuse what is being argued with race, politics, sex or age, they listen patiently to the young and to the old who both know everything. These are the general virtues of scholarship, and they are peculiarly the virtues of science.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The wise person often shuns society for fear of being bored.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
