It is better to correct your own faults than those of another. (Quote by - Democritus)

The revolutions of thought which shape the basic outlook of an age are not disseminated through text-books- they spread like epidemics, through contamination by invisible agents and innocent germ carriers, by the most varied forms of contact, or simply by breathing the common air. (Quote by - Arthur Koestler)

It is loneliness that makes the loudest noise. This is true of men as of dogs. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Being intelligent is not a felony. But most societies evaluate it as at least a misdemeanor. (Quote by - Robert Heinlein)

The power of habit and the charm of novelty are the two adverse forces which explain the follies of mankind. (Quote by - Maria De Beausacq)

Thought control, like birth control, is best undertaken as long as possible before the fact. Many grown-ups will obstinately persist, if only now and then, in composing small strings of sentences in their heads and achieving at least momentary logic. This probably cannot be prevented, but we have learned how to minimize the consequences by arranging that such grown-ups will be unable to pursue that logic very far. If they were at home in the technology of writing, there's no telling how much social disorder they would cause by thinking things out at length.Our schools have chosen to cut this danger off as close to the root as possible, thus taking measures to preclude not only the birth of thought but its conception. They give the pill to even the youngest children, but just to be on the safe side, they give it to everybody else, too, especially all would-be schoolteachers. (Quote by - Richard Mitchell)

Fear comes from uncertainty. When we are absolutely certain, whether of our worth or our worthlessness, we are almost impervious to fear. Thus a feeling of utter worthlessness can be a source of courage. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Consciously or unconsciously, every one of us does render some service or other. If we cultivate the habit of doing this service deliberately, our desire for service will steadily grow stronger, and will make, not only our own happiness, but that of the world at large. (Quote by - Roy Goodman)

By annihilating the desires, you annihilate the mind. Every man without passions has within him no principle of action, nor motive to act. (Quote by - Claud-adrian Helvetius)

Anyone can escape into sleep, we are all geniuses when we dream, the butcher's the poet's equal there. (Quote by - E. M. Cioran)

It is curiosity, initiative, originality, and the ruthless application of honesty that count in research- much more than feats of logic and memory alone. (Quote by - Julian Huxley)

Good means not merely not to do wrong, but rather not to desire to do wrong. (Quote by - Democritus)

The human understanding, from its peculiar nature, easily supposes a greater degree of order and regularity in things than it really finds. (Quote by - Francis Bacon)

There is nothing so awkward as courting a woman whilst she is making sausages. (Quote by - Laurence Sterne)

Of all the judgments we pass in life, none is more important than the judgment we pass on ourselves. (Quote by - Nathaniel Branden)

The hatred and cruelty which have their source in selfishness are ineffectual things compared with the venom and ruthlessness born of selflessness. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

To dream anything that you want to dream, that is the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do, that is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself, to test your limits, that is the courage to succeed. (Quote by - Bernard Edmonds)

In a free country it is the duty of writers to pay no attention to duty. (Quote by - E.b. White)

Habits are to the soul what the veins and arteries are to the blood, the courses in which it moves. (Quote by - Horace Bushnell)

The short-lived self, teetering on the edge of extinction, is the only thing that can ever really matter. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

I have heard it said that the first ingredient of success -- the earliest spark in the dreaming youth -- if this; dream a great dream. (Quote by - John A. Appleman)

I keep the telephone of my mind open to peace, harmony, health, love, and abundance. Then, whenever doubt, anxiety, or fear try to call me, they will keep getting a busy signal and soon they'll forget my number. (Quote by - Edith Armstrong)

Insanity -- a perfectly rational adjustment to an insane world. (Quote by - R. D. Lang)

Dogma does not mean the absence of thought, but the end of thought. (Quote by - Gilbert Keith Chesterton)

Lack of sensitivity is perhaps basically an unawareness of ourselves. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)
