As long as we are lucky we attribute it to our smartness; our bad luck we give the gods credit for.
Josh Billings quotes
Politics is not the art of the possible. It consists in choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable.
John Kenneth Galbraith quotes
The art of a people is a true mirror to their minds.
Jawaharlal Nehru quotes
Compromise makes a good umbrella, but a poor roof; it is temporary expedient, often wise in party politics, almost sure to be unwise in statesmanship.
James Russell Lowell quotes
Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A Beauty Bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air -- explode softly -- and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth -- boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn't go cheap, either -- not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.
Robert Fulghum quotes
After a while, I sorta start to think there is no such thing as private, people don't like to say things that are too 'personal' but you know, if there's anything I've learned doing this for years, it's that nothing is just personal to me, I'm not that unique.
Ani Difranco quotes
Many people lock a part of themselves away. It's a bit sacred.
Tori Amos quotes
No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars or sailed to an uncharted land or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.
Helen Keller quotes
A leader in the Democratic Party is a boss, in the Republican Party he is a leader.
Harry S Truman quotes
Democracy is the art and science of running the circus from the monkey cage.
Henry Louis Mencken quotes
