It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It is not time or opportunity that is to determine intimacy;-- it is disposition alone. Seven years would be insufficient to make some people acquainted with each other, and seven days are more than enough for others.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The California crunch really is the result of not enough power-generating plants and then not enough power to power the power of generating plants. (Jan. 2001)More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and by not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful; yourself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible -- it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I believe we are still so innocent. The species are still so innocent that a person who is apt to be murdered believes that the murderer, just before he puts the final wrench on his throat, will have enough compassion to give him one sweet cup of water.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Tragedy on the stage is no longer enough for me, I shall bring it into my own life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Suppose that we are wise enough to learn and know -- and yet not wise enough to control our learning and knowledge, so that we use it to destroy ourselves? Even if that is so, knowledge remains better than ignorance. It is better to know -- even if the knowledge endures only for the moment that comes before destruction -- than to gain eternal life at the price of a dull and swinish lack of comprehension of a universe that swirls unseen before us in all its wonder. That was the choice of Achilles, and it is mine, too.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Rhymes, meters, stanza forms, etc., are like servants. If the master is fair enough to win their affection and firm enough to command their respect, the result is an orderly happy household. If he is too tyrannical, they give notice; if he lacks authority, they become slovenly, impertinent, drunk and dishonest.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Laugh and the world laughs with you, be prompt and you dine alone. For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, but has trouble enough of its own.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Who among us has not, in moments of ambition, dreamt of the miracle of a form of poetic prose, musical but without rhythm and rhyme, both supple and staccato enough to adapt itself to the lyrical movements of our souls, the undulating movements of our reveries, and the convulsive movements of our consciences? This obsessive ideal springs above all from frequent contact with enormous cities, from the junction of their innumerable connections.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not enough for theory to describe and analyze, it must itself be an event in the universe it describes. In order to do this theory must partake of and become the acceleration of this logic. It must tear itself from all referents and take pride only in the future. Theory must operate on time at the cost of a deliberate distortion of present reality.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Civilization exists precisely so that there may be no masses but rather men alert enough never to constitute masses.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For eighteen hundred years, though perchance I have no right to say it, the New Testament has been written; yet where is the legislator who has wisdom and practical talent enough to avail himself of the light which it sheds on the science of legislation?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

It would be enough for me to have the system of a jury of twelve versus the system of one judge as a basis for preferring the U.S. to the Soviet Union. I would prefer the country you can leave to the country you cannot.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Satire is tragedy plus time. You give it enough time, the public, the reviewers will allow you to satirize it. Which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
She just wore enough for modesty; no more!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you attack the establishment long enough and hard enough, they will make you a member of it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The young do not know enough to be prudent, and therefore they attempt the impossible -- and achieve it, generation after generation.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A fresh mind keeps the body fresh. Take in the ideas of the day, drain off those of yesterday. As to the morrow, time enough to consider it when it becomes today.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only thing that holds a marriage together is the husband being big enough to keep his mouth shut, to step back and see where his wife is wrong.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our lives as we lead them as passed on to others, whether in physical or mental forms, tingeing all future lives together. This should be enough for one who lives for truth and service to his fellow passengers on the way.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The aura of the theocratic death penalty for adultery still clings to America, even outside New England, and multiple divorce, which looks to the European like serial polygamy, is the moral solution to the problem of the itch. Love comes into it too, of course, but in Europe we tend to see marital love as an eternity which encompasses hate and also indifference: when we promise to love we really mean that we promise to honor a contract. Americans, seeming to take marriage with not enough seriousness, are really taking love and sex with too much.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A man should be just cultured enough to be able to look with suspicion upon culture at first, not second hand.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The public do not know enough to be experts, but know enough to decide between them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are more fools than knaves in the world, else the knaves would not have enough to live upon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If you follow reason far enough it always leads to conclusions that are contrary to reason.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have lived long enough to satisfy both nature and glory.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sometimes in politics one must duel with skunks, but no one should be fool enough to allow skunks to choose the weapons.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The only happiness a brave person ever troubles themselves in asking about, is happiness enough to get their work done.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is not all bad, this getting old, ripening. After the fruit has got its growth it should juice up and mellow. God forbid I should live long enough to ferment and rot and fall to the ground in a squash.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Midnight, and the clock strikes. It is Christmas Day, the werewolves birthday, the door of the solstice still wide enough open to let them all slink through.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No person is important enough to make me angry.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Old age has deformities enough of its own. It should never add to them the deformity of vice.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
If American politics does not look to you like a joke, a tragic dance; if you have enough blindness left in you, on any plea, on any excuse, to vote for the Democratic Party or the Republican Party (for at present machine and party are one), or for any candidate who does not stand for a new era, -- then you yourself pass into the slide of the magic-lantern; you are an exhibit, a quaint product, a curiosity of the American soil. You are part of the problem.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The old idea that the joke was not good enough for the company has been superseded by the new aristocratic idea that the company was not worthy of the joke. They have introduced an almost insane individualism into that one form of intercourse which is specially and uproariously communal. They have made even levities into secrets. They have made laughter lonelier than tears.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You do not have to suffer to be a poet. Adolescence is enough suffering for anyone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Any thought that is passed on to the subconscious often enough and convincingly enough is finally accepted.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The soup is never hot enough if the waiter can keep his thumb in it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Power will intoxicate the best hearts, as wine the strongest heads. No man is wise enough, nor good enough to be trusted with unlimited power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is no pain equal to that which two lovers can inflict on one another. This should be made clear to all who contemplate such a union. The avoidance of this pain is the beginning of wisdom, for it is strong enough to contaminate the rest of our lives.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
