Margaret Sanger: Quote for March 31, 2012

The most serious evil of our times is that of encouraging the bringing into the world of large families. The most immoral practice of the day is breeding too many children. These statements may startle those who have never made a thorough investigation of the problem. They are, nevertheless, well considered, and the truth of them is abundantly borne out by an examination of facts and conditions which are part of everyday experience or observation.

Dr. Margaret Hamburg: Quote for March 29, 2012

When I started medical school, I was told that — with the advent of drugs and vaccines — the era of infectious diseases was basically over, and that the future of medicine was chronic disease. That was in the late 70s. Then we began to see the emergence of these strange cases of immune deficiency, mainly in previously healthy young men; nobody knew what the cause was and nobody even knew what to call it. I remember it was called GRID and 4H Syndrome…and then it was AIDS.

Harrison Ford: Quote for March 28, 2012

All I would tell people is to hold onto what was individual about themselves, not to allow their ambition for success to cause them to try to imitate the success of others. You've got to find it on your own terms.

Charles Bronson: Quote for March 27, 2012

Part of the problem is how little we understand about the ultimate betrayal of the body when it rebels against itself. You always worry about charlatans. We found that specialists did not know as much as we thought.

Ann Wigmore: Quote for March 25, 2012

In this fast-paced world it is too frequently the case that people accept what society, family members, and the authorities whom nobody ever seems to question, believe regarding how to live their lives. And yet, the happiest people I know have been those who have accepted the primary responsibility for their own spiritual and physical well-being those who have inner strength, courage, determination, common sense, and faith in the process of creating more balanced and satisfying lives for themselves.

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

Benjamin Franklin: Quote for March 23, 2012

Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.
The main reason our world today needs such cruel masters is because it has become so corrupt and vicious.

Dorothy Rowe: Quote for March 21, 2012

We would like to believe that we are not in the business of surviving but in being good, and we do not like to admit to ourselves that we are good in order to survive.

Richard Feynman: Quote for March 20, 2012

When I see a congressman giving his opinion on something, I always wonder if it represents his real opinion or if it represents an opinion that he's designed in order to be elected. It seems to be a central problem for politicians. So I often wonder: what is the relation of integrity to working in the government?

George Bernard Shaw: Quote for March 19, 2012

The greatest evils and the worst of crimes is poverty; our first duty, a duty to which every other consideration should be sacrificed, is not to be poor.

Jane Fonda: Quote for March 18, 2012

I would think that, if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would become communist.

Angelina Jolie: Quote for March 16, 2012

I don't believe in guilt, I believe in living on impulse as long as you never intentionally hurt another person, and don't judge people in your life. I think you should live completely free.

Thomas B. Reed: Quote for March 15, 2012

Grey Owl: Quote for March 11, 2012

Man's general reaction to his contacts with the animal world...are contempt or condensation towards the smaller and more harmless species, and a rather unreasonable fear of those more able to protect themselves.... Whole species of valuable and intelligent animals have been exterminated for temporary gain.

Niccolo Machiavelli: Quote for March 10, 2012

For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearance, as though they were realities and are often more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.

Helen Keller: Quote for March 9, 2012

The few own the many because they possess the means of livelihood of all ... The country is governed for the richest, for the corporations, the bankers, the land speculators, and for the exploiters of labor. The majority of mankind are working people. So long as their fair demands - the ownership and control of their livelihoods - are set at naught, we can have neither men's rights nor women's rights. The majority of mankind is ground down by industrial oppression in order that the small remnant may live in ease.
Ms. Keller delivered the above quote in 1911. Isn't it amazing that her sentiments are even more valid today, in 2012?

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle: Quote for March 8, 2012

My mind rebels at stagnation. Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram, or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere. But I abhor the dull routine of existence. I crave for mental exaltation.

Jack London: Quote for March 7, 2012

I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums. All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me. Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born.
