Quote Left I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. We are for the most part more lonely when we go abroad among men than when we stay in our chambers. A man thinking or working is always alone, let him be where he will. Solitude is not measured by the miles of space that intervene between a man and his fellows. Quote Right
Quote Left A wise man never knows all, only fools know everything Quote Right
Quote Left On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life, nothing can destroy him. Quote Right
Quote Left There is something in the unselfish and self-sacrificing love of a brute, which goes directly to the heart of him who has had frequent occasion to test the paltry friendship and gossamer fidelity of mere Man. Quote Right
Quote Left For Africa to me is more than a glamorous fact. It is a historical truth. No man can know where he is going unless he knows exactly where he has been and exactly how he arrived at his present place. Quote Right
Quote Left Said the little boy, Sometimes I drop my spoon. Said the little old man, I do that too. The little boy whispered, I wet my pants. I do too, laughed the old man. Said the little boy, I often cry. The old man nodded. So do I. But worst of all, said the boy, it seems Grown-ups don't pay attention to me. And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand. I know what you mean, said the little old man. Quote Right
Quote Left That the whole free people of any nation ought to be exercised to arms, not only the example of our ancestors, as appears by the acts of parliament made in both kingdoms to that purpose, and that of the wisest governments among the ancients; but the advantage of choosing out of great numbers, seems clearly to demonstrate. For in countries where husbandry, trade, manufactures, and other mechanical arts are carried on, even in time of war, the impediments of men are so many and so various, that unless the whole people be exercised, no considerable numbers of men can be drawn out, without disturbing those employments, which are the vitals of the political body. Besides, that upon great defeats, and under extreme calamities, from which no government was ever exempted, every nation stands in need of all the people, as the ancients sometimes did of their slaves. And I cannot see why arms should be denied to any man who is not a slave, since they are the only true badges of liberty; and ought never, but in times of utmost necessity, to be put into the hands of mercenaries or slaves: neither can I understand why any man that has arms should not be taught the use of them. Quote Right
Quote Left The election makes me think of a story of a man who was dying. He had only two minutes to live, so he sent for a clergyman and asked him, "Whe... Quote Right

Quote Left Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size But when I start to tell them, They think I'm telling lies. I say, It's in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey bees. I say, It's the fire in my eyes, And the flash of my teeth, The swing in my waist, And the joy in my feet. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. Men themselves have wondered What they see in me. They try so much But they can't touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them They say they still can't see. I say, It's in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile, The ride of my breasts, The grace of my style. I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. Now you understand Just why my head's not bowed. I don't shout or jump about Or have to talk real loud. When you see me passing It ought to make you proud. I say, It's in the click of my heels, The bend of my hair, the palm of my hand, The need of my care, 'Cause I'm a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That's me. Quote Right
Quote Left Were I called on to define, very briefly, the term Art, I should call it the reproduction of what the Senses perceive in Nature through the veil of the soul. The mere imitation, however accurate, of what is in Nature, entitles no man to the sacred name of Artist. Quote Right
Quote Left Man has a fund of emotional energy which is not all occupied with his self-preservation. This surplus seeks its outlet in the creation of art, for man's civilization is built upon his surplus... In everyday life, when we are mostly moved by our habit Quote Right
Quote Left Wisdom and spirit of the Universe Thou soul is the eternity of thought That giv'st to forms and images a breath And everlasting motion Not in vain By day or star-light thus from by first dawn Of childhood didst thou intertwine for me The passions that build up our human soul, Not with the mean and vulgar works of man, But with high objects, with enduring things, With life and nature, purifying thus The elements of feeling and of thought, And sanctifying, by such discipline Both pain and fear, until we recognize A grandeur in the beatings of the heart. Quote Right
Quote Left Bump! Bump! Bump! Did you ever ride a wump? We have a Wump with just one hump. But, we know a man called Mr. Gump. Mr Gump has a seven hump Wump. So... if you Bump! Bump! Just jump on the hump on the Wump of Gump. Quote Right

Quote Left So daddy, I'm finally through. The black telephone's off at the root, The voices just can't worm through. If I've killed one man, I've killed two -- The vampire who said he was you And drank my blood for a year, Seven years, if you want to know. Daddy, you can lie back now. There's a stake in your fat black heart And the villagers never liked you. They are dancing and stamping on you. They always knew it was you. Daddy, daddy, you bastard, I'm through. Quote Right

Quote Left I swear to the LordI still can't seeWhy Democracy meansEverybody but me. Quote Right
Quote Left If then a practical end must be assigned to a University course, I say it is that of training good members of society. Its art is the art of social life, and its end is fitness for the world. It neither confines its views to particular professions on the one hand, nor creates heroes or inspires genius on the other. Works indeed of genius fall under no art; heroic minds come under no rule; a University is not a birthplace of poets or of immortal authors, of founders of schools, leaders of colonies, or conquerors of nations. It does not promise a generation of Aristotles or Newtons, of Napoleons or Washingtons, of Raphaels or Shakespeares, though such miracles of nature it has before now contained within its precincts. Nor is it content on the other hand with forming the critic or the experimentalist, the economist or the engineer, though such too it includes within its scope. But a University training is the great ordinary means to an great but ordinary end; it aims at raising the intellectual tone of society, at cultivating the public mind, at purifying the national taste, at supplying true principles to popular enthusiasm and fixed aims to popular aspiration, at giving enlargement and sobriety to the ideas of the age, at facilitating the exercise of political power, and refining the intercourse of private life. It is the education which gives a man a clear conscious view of his own opinions and judgments, a truth in developing them, an eloquence in expressing them, and a force in urging them. Quote Right
Quote Left What, courage, man! What though care killed a cat, thou hast mettle enough in thee to kill care. Quote Right
Quote Left Depend upon it, after all, Thomas, Literature is the most noble of professions. In fact, it is about the only one fit for a man. For my own part, there is no seducing me from the path. Quote Right
Quote Left To deprive a man of his natural liberty and to deny to him the ordinary amenities of life is worse then starving the body; it is starvation of the soul, the dweller in the body. Quote Right
Quote Left All malice has injustice at it's end, an end achieved by violence or by fraud; while both are sins that earn the hate of heaven, since fraud belongs exclusively to man, God hates it more and, therefore, far below, the fraudulent are placed and suffer most Quote Right
Quote Left Grant us a common faith that man shall know bread and peacethat he shall know justice and righteousness, freedom and security, an equal opportunity and an equal chance to do his best not only in our own lands, but throughout the world. And in that faith let us march toward the clean world our hands can make. Quote Right
Quote Left Well I am certainly wiser than this man. It is only too likely that neither of us has any knowledge to boast of; but he thinks that he knows something which he does not know, whereas I am quite conscious of my ignorance. At any rate it seems that I am wiser than he is to this small extent, that I do not think that I know what I do not know. Quote Right
Quote Left Utdrag ur skadeanmälningar till Skandia: Då det ej fanns något tvistemål om vem som skulle köra, fortsatte undertecknade vilket även herr Rose'n gjorde med sammanstötning som följd. Jag har blifvit öfvererkörd af en atemobil med 90 kilm. i timmen och vill ha pengar för de. Utsikterna på vägen va godt och 8 meter bred. Jag föste mi ko öfver vägen och hålte på att springa tillbaka då biltermoristen var öfver mig. Ett revben vräkte han inåt och tri av tänderna låge kvar. Ä de fasoner de. Nä nä. Srif mej till och lemna 1,000 kr annars blir de laga sak åvet. Jag trodde rutan var nedfälld, men jag märkte när jag stack ut huvudet genom den att den var stängd. En fotgängare kolliderade med mej och for under min bil. Jag tutade, med bilhornet gick inte, för det var stulet. Olyckhändelsen orsakades av att vägen krökte. För att undvika kollisionen körde jag på den andra bilen. Jag kolliderade med en stillastående spårvagn som kom från motsatta hållet. Jag körde över en karl: han erkände att felet var hans, för han hade blivit överkörd förut. Kon gick emot bilen: efteråt fick jag veta att hon inte var riktigt klok! Motorcyklisten avled senare av skador som han tillfogades på Karlstads Lasarett. Jag föll i vägbanan. Min man fortsatte med sin moped och körde sedan i diket. Om jag fick hjälp eller om jag reste mig själv minns jag inte. Men när min man kom tillbaka och fick se att jag överlevt blev chocken för svår för honom så han föll ner avsvimmad. Jag stannade vid övergångstället då motparten körde mej i stjärten utan min tillåtelse. Vittnet kallade sig själv för gentleman, men jag tror det är riktigare att kalla honom för garageföreståndare. Det fanns en mängd åskådare men inga vittnen... Min fru har stortvätt på tisdagarna och när jag återvände hem på kvällen fick jag vindrutan och två tänder utslagna. Den andra vagnen kolliderade med min utan att giva någon som helst varning om sina avsikter. Min man mådde illa, så det gällde att få tag i en annan man... Jag vet inte vems felet var att vi båda fumlade, tvekade och kolliderade... Den kvinnliga föraren fick hela frampartiet intryckt. Olyckan berodde på att vägen svängde och var bevuxen med buskar och träd. Vid kollisionstillfället befann jag mig i sittande ställning på Dr Lindgrens toilett, varför jag icke kunde göra något för att avvärja skadan. Den döde kom cycklande från vänster... Quote Right

Quote Left Why I write is in the same vein as why a fisherman fishes. To have a hobby, an interest and a spot on the pier with all my other peers. To be on the water's edge enjoying the ambience, aesthetics, auxiliaries of nature and humanity. And from time to time to cast a thrill, dip my feet and see my reflection. To me that is enjoyable. And in the frame of my eyes, and hopes that is what I want to take home Quote Right

Quote Left What makes a man or woman, human? What makes a human put thoughts into words into stories? Surely, it is the Soul, the Higher Self that has the wish to convene with other souls. Is LOVE not the truest form of collaboration? When love transports a human out of the story into real life, then souls truly do meet. (Leanne Lovejoy-Burton writing as LadyLabyrinth) Quote Right
