It is astonishing how little one feels alone when one loves. ~John Bulwer

Hey yogurt, if you're so cultured, how come I never see you at the opera? ~Attributed to Stephen Colbert

Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers. ~Author Unknown

If you pick 'em up, O Lord, I'll put 'em down. ~Author Unknown, "Prayer of the Tired Walker"

Rock bottom is good solid ground, and a dead end street is just a place to turn around. ~Buddy Buie and J.R. Cobb, "Rock Bottom"

Come live in my heart and pay no rent. ~Samuel Lover

"Every minute dies a man, Every minute one is born;" I need hardly point out to you that this calculation would tend to keep the sum total of the world's population in a state of perpetual equipoise, whereas it is a well-known fact that the said sum total is constantly on the increase. I would therefore take the liberty of suggesting that in the next edition of your excellent poem the erroneous calculation to which I refer should be corrected as follows: "Every moment dies a man, And one and a sixteenth is born." I may add that the exact figures are 1.067, but something must, of course, be conceded to the laws of metre. ~Charles Babbage, letter to Alfred, Lord Tennyson, about a couplet in his "The Vision of Sin"

Quote A: �Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping tom to install your window blinds.� ~John Perry Barlow

We seldom enjoy leisure we haven't earned. ~Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. We semaphore from ship to ship, but they're sinking, too. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966

People must have renounced, it seems to me, all natural intelligence to dare to advance that animals are but animated machines.... It appears to me, besides, that such people can never have observed with attention the character of animals, not to have distinguished among them the different voices of need, of suffering, of joy, of pain, of love, of anger, and of all their affections. It would be very strange that they should express so well what they could not feel. ~Voltaire, Traite sur la tolerance

The finish line is sometimes merely the symbol of victory. All sorts of personal triumphs take place before that point, and the outcome of the race may actually be decided long before the end. ~Laurence Malone, about bicycle racing

There is no one who does not exaggerate. In conversation, men are encumbered with personality, and talk too much. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I've got a theory that if you give 100 percent all of the time, somehow things will work out in the end. ~Larry Bird

You can out-distance that which is running after you, but not what is running inside you. ~Rwandan Proverb

The question for each man is not what he would do if he had the means, time, influence, and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has. ~Hamilton

After two days in the hospital, I took a turn for the nurse. ~W.C. Fields

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. ~Charles Dickens
