Josh Billings: Quote for September 28, 2012

Bruce Lee: Quote for September 27, 2012

Ever since I was a child I have had this instinctive urge for expansion and growth. To me, the function and duty of a quality human being is the sincere and honest development of one's potential.

Harry Houdini: Quote for September 26, 2012

Agatha Christie: Quote for September 24, 2012

I suppose it is because nearly all children go to school nowadays and have things arranged for them that they seem so forlornly unable to produce their own ideas.

Mark Twain: Quote for September 23, 2012

In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.

Albert Einstein: Quote for September 22, 2012

A human being is a part of a whole, called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.

Louis Pasteur: Quote for September 21, 2012

Blessed is he who carries within himself a God, an ideal, and who obeys it: ideal of art, ideal of science, ideal of the gospel virtues, therein lie the springs of great thoughts and great actions; they all reflect light from the Infinite.

Libba Bray: Quote for September 20, 2012

What if evil doesn't really exist? What if evil is something dreamed up by man, and there is nothing to struggle against except out own limitations? The constant battle between our will, our desires, and our choices?
from: Rebel Angels (Book 2007)

D. H. Lawrence: Quote for September 19, 2012

The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.

Rabindranath Tagore: Quote for September 18, 2012

Most people believe the mind to be a mirror, more or less accurately reflecting the world outside them, not realizing on the contrary that the mind is itself the principal element of creation.

Stephen Hawking: Quote for September 17, 2012

Laws will be passed against genetic engineering with humans. But some people won’t be able to resist the temptation, to improve human characteristics, such as size of memory, resistance to disease, and length of life. Once such super humans appear, there are going to be major political problems, with the unimproved humans, who won’t be able to compete. Presumably, they will die out, or become unimportant. Instead, there will be a race of self-designing beings, who are improving themselves at an ever-increasing rate.

Hillary Rodham Clinton: Quote for September 16, 2012

Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, ‘How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate? In a city we helped save from destruction? (After she was informed that the American Embassy in Libya was attacked and the Ambassador was killed.)

We came, we saw, he died. (She joked after she heard of Muammar Gaddafi's death.)

Rita Hayworth: Quote for September 15, 2012

When you're in love, you're living; you matter.

James Cameron: Quote for September 14, 2012

With digital 3D projection, we will be entering a new age of cinema. Audiences will be seeing something which was never technically possible before the age of digital cinema - a stunning visual experience which `turbocharges` the viewing of the biggest, must-see movies. The biggest action, visual effects and fantasy movies will soon be shot in 3D. And all-CG animated films can easily be converted to 3D, without additional cost if it is done as they are made. Soon audiences will associate 3D with the highest level of visual content in the market, and seek out that premium experience.

Andy Rooney: Quote for September 13, 2012

Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don't need to be done.

Jim Carrey: Quote for September 12, 2012

Desperation is a necessary ingredient to learning anything, or creating anything. Period. If you ain't desperate at some point, you ain't interesting.

Samuel Adams: Quote for September 11, 2012

It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds.
A tireless minority is asking the authorities to truly investigate the events of September 11, 2001.

Gina Rinehart: Quote for September 8, 2011

There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire. If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself - spend less time drinking, or smoking and socializing and more time working.
Ms. Rinehart is one of the richest women in the world ($18 billion USD in 2012). She doesn't realize that our society naturally rewards the work of the rich and tries to keep the poor and middle class from getting rich no matter how hard they work.

Michael Clarke Duncan: Quote for September 7, 2012

The person that's always talkin', you don't have to worry about that person. The person that while you're in his face, he's just lookin' at you with a smile on his face, that's the guy you worry about.

Anne Rice: Quote for September 6, 2012

A perfectly evil Devil makes even less sense than a perfect God.
