If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a movable feast.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to strengthen each other in all labor, to rest on each other in all sorrow, to minister to each other in all pain, to be one with each other in silent, unspe.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Who ordained that the few should have the land (of Britain) as a prerequisite; who made 10,000 people owners of the soil and the rest of us trespassers in the land of our birth?More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We work in the dark, We do what we can, We give what we have, Our doubt is our passion, And our passion is our task, The rest is the madness of art.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The creative individual has the capacity to free himself from the web of social pressures in which the rest of us are caught. He is capable of questioning the assumptions that the rest of us accept.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The rest is silence.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is so much good in the worst of us, and so much bad in the best of us, that it ill behaves any of us to find fault with the rest of us.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the mark of an instructed mind to rest satisfied with the degree of precision which the nature of the subject admits and not to seek exactness when only an approximation of the truth is possible.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There are souls that are incurable and lost to the rest of society. Deprive them of one means of folly, they will invent ten thousand others. They will create subtler, wilder methods, methods that are absolutely DESPERATE. Nature herself is fundamentally antisocial, it is only by a usurpation of powers that the organized body of society opposes the natural inclination of humanity.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For the past 15 years or so, British governments have tried to persuade the rest of us that the best judges of the national interest are...businessmen. This may be a ridiculous statement, but -- ominously -- fewer and fewer people laugh at it.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]
Marriage is low down, but you spend the rest of your life paying for it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
When we suffer anguish we return to early childhood because that is the period in which we first learnt to suffer the experience of total loss. It was more than that. It was the period in which we suffered more total losses than in all the rest of our life put together.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The media network has its idols, but its principal idol is its own style which generates an aura of winning and leaves the rest in darkness. It recognizes neither pity nor pitilessness.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied but written off as trash. The twentieth-century consumer economy has produced the first culture for which a beggar is a reminder of nothing.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
An absolute can only be given in an intuition, while all the rest has to do with analysis. We call intuition here the sympathy by which one is transported into the interior of an object in order to coincide with what there is unique and consequently inexpressible in it. Analysis, on the contrary, is the operation which reduces the object to elements already known.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
We must live for the few who know and appreciate us, who judge and absolve us, and for whom we have the same affection and indulgence.

The aim, if reached or not, makes great the life: try to be Shakespeare, leave the rest to fate!More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A promising young man should go into politics so that he can go on promising for the rest of his life.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy. All the rest -- whether or not the world has three dimensions, whether the mind has nine or twelve categories -- comes afterwards. These are games; one must first answer.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A person who is gifted sees the essential point and leaves the rest as surplus.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The miracles of the church seem to me to rest not so much upon faces or voices or healing power coming suddenly near to us from afar off, but upon our perceptions being made finer, so that for a moment our eyes can see and our ears can hear what is there about us always.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The magistrates are the ministers for the laws, the judges their interpreters, the rest of us are servants of the law, that we all may be free.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]

Friendship is the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person having neither to weigh thoughts or measure words, but pouring all right out just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful friendly hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping and, with a breath of comfort, blow the rest away.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In great cities men are brought together by the desire of gain. They are not in a state of co-operation, but of isolation, as to the making of fortunes; and for all the rest they are careless of neighbors. Christianity teaches us to love our neighbor as ourselves; modern society acknowledges no neighbor.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
You are told a lot about your education, but some beautiful, sacred memory, preserved since childhood, is perhaps the best education of all. If a man carries many such memories into life with him, he is saved for the rest of his days. And even if only one good memory is left in our hearts, it may also be the instrument of our salvation one day.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Harold, like the rest of us, had many impressions which saved him the trouble of distinct ideas.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistorical acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The world is full of willing people, some willing to work, the rest willing to let them.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I understand by this passion the union of desire, friendship, and tenderness, which is inflamed by a single female, which prefers her to the rest of her sex, and which seeks her possession as the supreme or the sole happiness of our being.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Better mad with the rest of the world than wise alone.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is fatally easy for Western folk, who have discarded chastity as a value for themselves, to suppose that it can have no value for anyone else. At the same time as Californians try to re-invent celibacy, by which they seem to mean perverse restraint, the rest of us call societies which place a high value on chastity backward.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Mind and spirit together make up that which separates us from the rest of the animal world, that which enables a man to know the truth and that which enables him to die for the truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Sometimes the most important thing in a whole day is the rest we take between two deep breaths, or the turning inwards in prayer for five short minutes.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For too much rest becomes a pain.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Once your physically capable of winning a gold medal, the rest is ninety percent mental.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
No man is much regarded by the rest of the world. He that considers how little he dwells upon the condition of others, will learn how little the attention of others is attracted by himself. While we see multitudes passing before us, of whom perhaps not one appears to deserve our notice or excites our sympathy, we should remember, that we likewise are lost in the same throng, that the eye which happens to glance upon us is turned in a moment on him that follows us, and that the utmost which we can reasonably hope or fear is to fill a vacant hour with prattle, and be forgotten.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
