   I have plentyof common sense! I just choose to ignore it.
  ~Author : Bill Watterson Calvin and Hobbes short  Famous Quotes

   And because I am happy and dance and sing, They think they have done me no injury.
  ~Author : William Blake Meaningful Sayings

   For I do not believe God means us thus to divide life into two halves - to wear a grave face on Sunday, and to think it out-of-place to even so much as mention Him on a week-day. Do you think He cares to see only kneeling figures and to hear only tones of prayer - and that He does not also love to see the lambs leaping in the sunlight, and to hear the merry voices of the children, as they roll amoung the hay? Surely their innocent laughter is as sweet in His ears as the grandest anthem that ever rolled up from the "dim religious light" of some solemn cathedral?
  ~Author : Lewis Carroll Popular Sayings

   People in high life are hardened to the wants and distresses of mankind as surgeons are to their bodily pains.
  ~Author : G K Chesterton Wise short Quotes

   When things haven't gone well for you, call in a secretary or a staff man and chew him out. You will sleep better and they will appreciate the attention.
  ~Author : Lyndon B Johnson Witty Sayings

   All Faith is false, all Faith is true:
Truth is the shattered mirror strown
In myriad bits; while each believes
His little bit the whole to own.
  ~Author : Sir Richard Francis Burton Motivational Sayings

   One day our descendants will think it incredible that we paid so much attention to things like the amount of melanin in our skin or the shape of our eyes or our gender instead of the unique identities of each of us as complex human beings.
  ~Author : Franklin Thomas Famous short Quotes

   It is the difference of opinion that makes horse races.
  ~Author : Mark Twain Inspirational Sayings

   The path of repentance, though hard at times, lifts one ever upwards and leads to a perfect forgiveness.
  ~Author : Howard W Hunter Speech given in October 1994 short Nice Quotes

      It seems to me the book has not just aesthetic values-- the charming little clothy box of the thing, the smell of the glue, even the print, which has its own beauty.
