Say not that honor is the child of boldness, nor believe thou that the hazard of life alone can pay the price of it: it is not to the action that it is due, but to the manner of performing it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The philosopher is like a man fasting in the midst of universal intoxication. He alone perceives the illusion of which all creatures are the willing playthings; he is less duped than his neighbor by his own nature. He judges more sanely, he sees things as they are. It is in this that his liberty consists -- in the ability to see clearly and soberly, in the power of mental record.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We allow our ignorance to prevail upon us and make us think we can survive alone, alone in patches, alone in groups, alone in races, even alone in genders.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd. The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one hasMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For twenty-five centuries, Western knowledge has tried to look upon the world. It has failed to understand that the world is not for the beholding. It is for hearing. It is not legible, but audible. Our science has always desired to monitor, measure, abstract, and castrate meaning, forgetting that life is full of noise and that death alone is silent: work noise, noise of man, and noise of beast. Noise bought, sold, or prohibited. Nothing essential happens in the absence of noise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When one by one our ties are torn, and friend from friend is snatched forlorn; When man is left alone to mourn, oh! then how sweet it is to die!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Laughter on American television has taken the place of the chorus in Greek tragedy. In other countries, the business of laughing is left to the viewers. Here, their laughter is put on the screen, integrated into the show. It is the screen that is laughing and having a good time. You are simply left alone with your consternation.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]
The English Bible -- a book which, if everything else in our language should perish, would alone suffice to show the whole extent of its beauty and power.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To generalize is to be an idiot. To particularize is the alone distinction of merit. General knowledge are those knowledge that idiots possess.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A writer who writes, I am alone... can be considered rather comical. It is comical for a man to recognize his solitude by addressing a reader and by using methods that prevent the individual from being alone. The word alone is just as general as the word bread. To pronounce it is to summon to oneself the presence of everything the word excludes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
To each man is reserved a work which he alone can do.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

To reduce the imagination to a state of slavery --even though it would mean the elimination of what is commonly called happiness --is to betray all sense of absolute justice within oneself. Imagination alone offers me some intimation of what can be.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Love alone could waken love.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that is where I renew my springs that never dry up.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
More and more, when faced with the world of men, the only reaction is one of individualism. Man alone is an end unto himself. Everything one tries to do for the common good ends in failure.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ill-health, of body or of mind, is defeat. Health alone is victory. Let all men, if they can manage it, contrive to be healthy!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Love alone can unite living beings so as to complete and fulfill them... for it alone joins them by what is deepest in themselves. All we need is to imagine our ability to love developing until it embraces the totality of men and the earth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The timidity of the child or the savage is entirely reasonable; they are alarmed at this world, because this world is a very alarming place. They dislike being alone because it is verily and indeed an awful idea to be alone. Barbarians fear the unknown for the same reason that Agnostics worship it --because it is a fact.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Every stage of human life, except the last, is marked out by certain and defined limits; old age alone has no precise and determinate boundary.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We always carry out by committee anything in which any one of us alone would be too reasonable to persist.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A religion, that is, a true religion, must consist of ideas and facts both; not of ideas alone without facts, for then it would be mere Philosophy; -- nor of facts alone without ideas, of which those facts are symbols, or out of which they arise, or upon which they are grounded: for then it would be mere History.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A friend is someone you can be alone with and have nothing to do and not be able to think of anything to say and be comfortable in the silence.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]
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Keeping up with the Joneses was a full-time job with my mother and father. It was not until many years later when I lived alone that I realized how much cheaper it was to drag the Joneses down to my level.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Now, what I want is, facts. Teach these boys and girls nothing but Facts. Facts alone are wanted in life. Plant nothing else, and root out everything else. You can only form the minds of reasoning animals upon Facts: nothing else will ever be of any service to them. This is the principle on which I bring up my own children, and this is the principle on which I bring up these children. Stick to Facts, sir!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The right to be let alone is indeed the beginning of all freedom.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sincerity is the luxury allowed, like diadems and authority, only to the highest rank. Every man alone is sincere. At the entrance of a second person, hypocrisy begins.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We walk alone in the world.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Talent alone cannot make a writer. There must be a man behind the book; a personality which, by birth and quality, is pledged to the doctrines there set forth, and which exists to see and state things so, and not otherwise.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is one thing alone that stands the brunt of life throughout its length: a quite conscience.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The prospect of success in achieving our most cherished dream is not without its terrors. Who is more deprived and alone than the man who has achieved his dream?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sexual love is undoubtedly one of the chief things in life, and the union of mental and bodily satisfaction in the enjoyment of love is one of its culminating peaks. Apart from a few queer fanatics, all the world knows this and conducts its life accordingly; science alone is too delicate to admit it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The methods by which a trade union can alone act, are necessarily destructive; its organization is necessarily tyrannical.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I was never less alone than when by myself.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
That is the true season of love; when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved as much before, and that no one will ever love in the same way again.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This is the highest wisdom that I own; freedom and life are earned by those alone who conquer them each day anew.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I grew up in a very large family in a very small house. I never slept alone until after I was married.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing is so envied as genius, nothing so hopeless of attainment by labor alone. Though labor always accompanies the greatest genius, without the intellectual gift labor alone will do little.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Change alone is unchanging.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For I say unto you in all sadness of conviction that to think great thoughts you must be heroes as well as idealists. Only when you have worked alone -- when you have felt around you are a black gulf of solitude more isolating than that which surrounds the dying man, and in hope and despair have trusted to your own unshaken will -- then only can you gain the secret isolated joy of the thinker, who knows that a hundred years after he is dead and forgotten men who have never heard of him will be moving to the measure of his thought -- the subtle rapture of postponed power, which the world knows not because it has no external trappings, but which to his prophetic vision is more real than that which commands an army. And if this joy should not be yours, still it is only thus you can know that you have done what lay in you to do -- can say that you have lived, and be ready for the end.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A writer and nothing else; a man alone in a room with the English language, trying to get human feelings right.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
