    Quote 2113by Anonymous on 22/01/2011

    Everything that is new or uncommon raises a pleasure in the imagination, because it fills the soul with an agreeable surprise, gratifies its curiosity, and gives it an idea of which it was not before possessed.

      To be an atheist requires an infinitely greater measure of faith than to receive all the great truths which atheism would deny.

            What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.

                  If men would consider not so much wherein they differ, as wherein they agree, there would be far less of uncharitableness and angry feeling.

                      What an absurd thing it is to pass over all the valuable parts of a man, and fix our attention on his infirmities.

                        Quote 7033by Anonymous on 17/10/2011

                        It is folly for an eminent person to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected by it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age, have passed through this fiery persecution. There is no defense against reproach but obscurity; it is a kind of concomitant to greatness, as satires and invectives were an essential part of a Roman triumph.

                          How beautiful is death, when earn'd by virtue! Who would not be that youth? What pity is it That we can die but once to serve our country!

                            Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
