Hugs can do great amounts of good - especially for children.
I scientifically engineer my music to be as accessible as possible.
It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony.
Laws and institutions, like clocks, must occasionally be cleaned, wound up, and set to true time.
Henry Ward Beecher
A library is but the soul's burying ground. It is a land of shadows.
Golf appeals to the idiot in us and the child. Just how childlike golf players become is proven by their frequent inability to count past five.
If a man meets with injustice, it is not required that he shall not be roused to meet it; but if he is angry after he has had time to think upon it, that is sinful. The flame is not wring, but the coals are.
Never forget what a person says to you when they are angry.
In order to go on living one must try to escape the death involved in perfectionism.
The continuance and frequent fits of anger produce in the soul a propensity to be angry; which oftentimes ends in choler, bitterness, and moronity, when the mid becomes ulcerated, peevish, and querulous, and is wounded by the least occurrence.
The dog is the god of frolic.
Clothes and manners do not make the man; but when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance
Interpretation is the revenge of the intellectual upon art.
My nickname for my mom was 'The Compass.'
Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to your own... Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. The immature mind often mistakes one for the other, or assumes that the greater the love, the greater the jealousy.
Robert A. Heinlein
People could rationally decide that prolonged relationships take up too much time and effort and that they'd much rather do other kinds of things. But most people are afraid of rejection.
I think a lot of people, even Christians, are willing to be satisfied with gaining lots and lots of biblical knowledge - and many people go to Bible studies and don't realize it isn't enough to know what's right, it's applying the information and the knowledge that you have.
I believe that his death and resurrection transformed humanity's relationship with God.
I don't believe war is a way to solve problems. I think it's wrong. I don't have respect for the people that made the decisions to go on with war. I don't have that much respect for Bush. He's about war, I'm not about war - a lot of people aren't about war.
Eating when you're not hungry and taking in that amount of food is exhausting.
Take the high road. No matter how much strife, and consternation, frustration and anger you might be confronted with - don't go to that level.
My main concern with the condition of mathematics in high school is that there's a lot of fear involved! Math is not, generally speaking, presented in a fun way. The concepts, as I see them, are fun, and that's the way I'd like to convey them myself.
Jazz is known all over the world as an American musical art form and that's it. No America, no jazz. I've seen people try to connect it to other countries, for instance to Africa, but it doesn't have a damn thing to do with Africa.
Being non-commercial is never an ambition. Movies come together at different points for fortuitous reasons. You do them as you get the opportunity, as opposed to doing them when you choose to or design to.
Once every five hundred years or so, a summary statement about poetry comes along that we can't imagine ourselves living without.
A. R. Ammons
When men speak ill of thee, live so as nobody may believe them.
A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
Plot, rules, nor even poetry, are not half so great beauties in tragedy or comedy as a just imitation of nature, of character, of the passions and their operations in diversified situations.
My mom, Irmelin, taught me the value of life. Her own life was saved by my grandmother during World War II.
Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
The results of political changes are hardly ever those which their friends hope or their foes fear.
Americans try to talk about positive family values, although the actual state of things is disastrous.
The financial costs of family breakdown are incredibly high.
Iain Duncan Smith
I can tell you that too much money is corrupting American politics. Don't blame the American public. The U.S. Supreme Court has a lot to answer for, because it has made it impossible for Congress to reduce the corrupting influence of money on American political life.
We are involved in technology development for, you know, missions that we hope to plan that would take us to an asteroid and eventually to Mars.
It could be fun to sing with Prince or Michael Jackson. Justin Timberlake has an amazing new sound now.
There is the fear, common to all English-only speakers, that the chief purpose of foreign languages is to make fun of us. Otherwise, you know, why not just come out and say it?
To say that I am organized is an understatement, but my car tells a different story.
The Peace Corps is a sort of Howard Johnson's on the main drag into maturity.
Money cannot buy happiness.
And like I say, I think we've got other cases other than Iraq. I do not think the problem of global proliferation of weapons technology of mass destruction is going to go away, and that's why I think it is an urgent issue.
