How to make God laugh. Tell him your future plans.
- Woody Allen
To be glad of life, because it gives you the chance to love and to work and to play and to look up at the stars; to be satisfied with your possessions, but not contented with yourself until you have made the best of them; to despise nothing in the world except falsehood and meanness, and to fear nothing except cowardice; to be governed by your admirations rather than by your disgusts; to covet nothing that is your neighbor's except his kindness of heart and gentleness of manners; to think seldom of your enemies, often of your friends, and every day of Christ; and to spend as much time as you can, with body and with spirit, in God's out-of-doors- these are little guideposts on the footpath to peace.
- Henry Van Dyke
I speak the truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more, as I grow older.
- Michel de Montaigne
They pick a President and then for four years they pick on him.
- Adlai Stevenson
To limit the press is to insult a nation; to prohibit reading of certain books is to declare the inhabitants to be either fools or slaves.
- Claude Adrien Helvetius
