Some of my favorite quotations:

  • A nation trying to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to pull himself up by the handles. -- Winston Churchill
  • Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms—to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way. -- Viktor Frankl
  • The weakness of a soul is proportionate to the number of truths that must be kept from it. -- Eric Hoffer
  • To achieve the impossible, it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought. -- Tom Robbins
  • It is not because the truth is too difficult to see that we make mistakes. It may even lie on the surface; but we make mistakes because the easiest and most comfortable course for us is to seek insight where it accords with our emotions — especially selfish ones. -- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
  • If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. -- Henry David Thoreau
  • In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination. -- Mark Twain
  • Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation. -— Oscar Wilde
  • It is our responsibilities, not ourselves, that we should take seriously. - Peter Ustinov
