Sharon Stone: Quote for February 29, 2012

For the first half of your life, you get the face that you're born with. And for the second half you get the face you deserve. And it's important to recognize the beauty within you and allow it to grow by being the greater person that you can be.

Albert Pike: Quote for February 28, 2012

Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! It is he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual or selfish souls? Doubt it not!

W. Somerset Maugham: Quote for February 27, 2012

The love that lasts the longest is the love that is never returned.

H. P. Lovecraft: Quote for February 26, 2012

Contrary to what you may assume, I am not a pessimist but an indifferentist — that is, I don't make the mistake of thinking that the... cosmos... gives a damn one way or the the other about the especial wants and ultimate welfare of mosquitoes, rats, lice, dogs, men, horses, pterodactyls, trees, fungi, dodos, or other forms of biological energy.

Richard A. Falk: Quote for February 25, 2012

What may be more distressing than the apparent cover up is the eerie silence of the mainstream media, unwilling to acknowledge the well-evidenced doubts about the official version of the events: an al Qaeda operation with no foreknowledge by government officials. Is this silence a manifestation of fear or co-option, or part of an equally disturbing filter of self-censorship?

Ann Coulter: Quote for February 24, 2012

A word to those of you out there who have yet to be offended by something I have said: Please be patient. I am working as fast as I can.

Albert Schweitzer: Quote for February 23, 2012

I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.

Jimmy Swaggart: Quote for February 22, 2012

The Media is ruled by Satan. But yet I wonder if many Christians fully understand that.

Robert C. Atkins: Quote for February 21, 2012

The War Against Quackery is a carefully orchestrated, heavily endowed campaign sponsored by extremists holding positions of power in the orthodox hierarchy.....The multimillion-dollar campaign against quackery was never meant to root out incompetent doctors; it was, and is, designed specifically to destroy alternative medicine...The millions were raised and spent because orthodox medicine sees alternative, drug-less medicine as a real threat to its economic power. And right they are...the majority of the drug houses will not survive.

Whitney Houston: Quote for February 20, 2012

I decided long ago never to walk in anyone's shadow; if I fail, or if I succeed at least I did as I believe.

Eckhart Tolle: Quote for February 19, 2012

Your mind is an instrument, a tool. It is there to be used for a specific task, and when the task is completed, you lay it down. As it is, I would say about 80 to 90 percent of most people's thinking is not only repetitive and useless, but because of its dysfunctional and often negative nature, much of it is also harmful. Observe your mind and you will find this to be true. It causes a serious leakage of vital energy.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Quote for February 18, 2012

To swallow and follow, whether old doctrine or new propaganda, is a weakness still dominating the human mind.

William O. Douglas: Quote for February 17, 2012

There are only two choices: A police state in which all dissent is suppressed or rigidly controlled; or a society where law is responsive to human needs. If society is to be responsive to human needs, a vast restructuring of our laws is essential.

Robin Williams: Quote for February 16, 2012

Cocaine is God's way of saying you're making too much money.

William E. Simon: Quote for February 15, 2012

The bureaucrat's first objective, of course, is preservation of his job – provided by the big-government system, at the taxpayer’s expense. … Whether real world problems get solved or not is of secondary importance. It doesn't take much cynicism, in fact, to see that the bureaucrats have a vested interest in not having problems solved. If the problems did not exist (or had been invented), there would be no reason for the bureaucrat to have a job.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: Quote for February 14, 2012

He who is in love is wise and is becoming wiser, sees newly every time he looks at the object beloved, drawing from it with his eyes and his mind those virtues which it possesses.

Lord Byron: Quote for February 13, 2012

The poor dog, in life the firmest friend,
The first to welcome, foremost to defend,
Whose honest heart is still his master's own,
Who labours, fights, lives, breathes for him alone,
Unhonour'd falls, unnoticed all his worth,
Denied in heaven the soul he held on earth.
While man, vain insect! hopes to be forgiven,
And claims himself a sole exclusive heaven.

Joyce Carol Oates: Quote for February 12, 2012

And this is the forbidden truth, the unspeakable taboo - that evil is not always repellent but frequently attractive; that it has the power to make of us not simply victims, as nature and accident do, but active accomplices.
Evil has a tendency to attract modern politicians.

Edgar Allan Poe: Quote for February 11, 2012

All religion, my friend, is simply evolved out of fraud, fear, greed, imagination, and poetry.

Shakti Gawain: Quote for February 10, 2012

The people we are in relationship with are always a mirror, reflecting our own beliefs, and simultaneously we are mirrors, reflecting their beliefs. So... relationship is one of the most powerful tools for growth....If we look honestly at our relationships, we can see so much about how we have created them.

George Carlin: Quote for February 9, 2012

The owners of this country know the truth, it's called "The American Dream," because you have to be asleep to believe it.

Hermann J. Muller: Quote for February 8, 2012

There is no permanent status quo in nature; all is the process of adjustment and readjustment, or else eventual failure. But man is the first being yet evolved on earth which has the power to note this changefulness, and, if he will, to turn it to his own advantage, to work out genetic methods, eugenic ideas, yes, to invent new characteristics, organs, and biological systems that will work out to further the interests, the happiness, the glory of the God-like being whose meager foreshadowings we the present ailing creatures are.

Neal Donald Walsch: Quote for February 7, 2012

It is religion which has filled the hearts of men with fear of God, where once man loved that which is in all its splendor. It is religion which has ordered men to bow down before God where once man rose up in joyful outreach. It is religion which has burdened man with worries about God's wrath where once man sought God to lighten his burden. It is religion which told man to be ashamed of his body and its most natural functions where once man celebrated those functions as the greatest gifts of life.

Roy Rogers: Quote for February 6, 2012

If there were no valleys of sadness and death, we could never really appreciate the sunshine of happiness on the mountain top.

Carl Zuckmayer: Quote for February 5, 2012

One-half of life is luck; the other half is discipline – and that's the important half, for without discipline you wouldn't know what to do with luck.
