Reason and action are congeneric and homogenous, two aspects of the same phenomenon. (Quote by - Ludwig Von Mises)

Let us face ourselves bravely as we are. For only a philosophy that recognizes reality can lead us into true happiness, and only that kind of philosophy is sound and healthy. (Quote by - Lin Yutang)

Ideas have a tendency to live lives of their own, and having become a part of tradition, they are very difficult to root out. When summarized in a few neat words or phrases, these gems of wisdom become substitutes for thought, and gradually take on much of the status of revealed truth. Occasionally, some iconoclast sees fit to challenge one of them, and a brief flurry ensues, after which things go on about as before. It is easy to think of plenty of ideas that are passing, if they have not already passed, beyond the stage of effective discussion. (Quote by - Richard V. Clemence)

The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbors as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant of others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

A line runs from the meditations of the heart to the words of the mouth. The meditations are not clear to us until the mouth utters its words. If what the mouth utters is unclear or foolish or mendacious, it must be that the meditations are the same. But the line runs both ways. The words of the mouth will become the meditations of the heart, and the habit of loose talk loosens the fastenings of our understanding. (Quote by - Richard Mitchell)

You can tell the man who rings true from the man who rings false, not by his deeds alone, but also his desires. (Quote by - Democritus)

To the excessively fearful the chief characteristic of power is its arbitrariness. Man had to gain enormously in confidence before he could conceive an all-powerful God who obeys his own laws. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Learning is not compulsory. Neither is survival. (Quote by - W.edwards Deming)

Fanaticism obliterates the feelings of humanity. (Quote by - Edward Gibbon)

The main fuel to speed the world's progress is our stock of knowledge, and the brake is our lack of imagination. (Quote by - Julian Simon)

We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe. (Quote by - Johann Von Goethe)

The evils of mankind are caused, not by the primary aggressiveness of individuals, but by their self-transcending identification with groups whose common denominator is low intelligence and high emotionality. (Quote by - Arthur Koestler)

The less satisfaction we derive from being ourselves, the greater is our desire to be like others. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important. (Quote by - Schopenhauer)

The hardest part of gaining any new idea is sweeping out the false idea occupying that niche. (Quote by - Robert Heinlein)

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. (Quote by - Leo Tolstoy)

Habits the only reason they persist is that they are offering some satisfaction. You allow them to persist by not seeking any other, better form of satisfying the same needs. Every habit, good or bad, is acquired and learned in the same way -- by finding that it is a means of satisfaction. (Quote by - Juliene Berk)

Every man is as Heaven made him, and sometimes a great deal worse. (Quote by - Cervantes)

Seek ye first the good things of the mind, and the rest will either be supplied or its loss will not be felt. (Quote by - Francis Bacon)

It has often been said that power corrupts. But it is perhaps equally important to realize that weakness, too, corrupts. Power corrupts the few, while weakness corrupts the many. Hatred, malice, rudeness, intolerance, and suspicion are the faults of weakness. The resentment of the weak does not spring from any injustice done to them but from their sense of inadequacy and impotence. We cannot win the weak by sharing our wealth with them. They feel our generosity as oppression. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Don't be afraid to take a big step when one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small steps. (Quote by - David Lloyd George)

Who speaks reason to his fellow man bestows it upon them. (Quote by - Richard Mitchell)

Whence come these hatreds? They are an expression of a desperate effort to suppress an awareness of our inadequacy, worthlessness, guilt and other shortcomings of the self. Self-contempt is here transmuted into hatred of others- and there is a most determined and persistent effort to mask this switch. (Quote by - Eric Hoffer)

Thinking to get at once all the gold the Goose could give, he killed it and opened it only to find,- nothing. (Quote by - Aesop)

We keep, in science, getting a more and more sophisticated view of our essential ignorance. (Quote by - Warren Weaver)
