Vigen Guroian Quotes

"My son Rafi is enchanted with cyberspace. But we are not disembodied mind or spirit, we are our bodies - cruising the Internet wont teach us that. It may even trick us into thinking that having a body and a place is not important. Gardening teaches us differently. I do not mean industrial mechanized farming, I mean the kind of gardening that any one of us can do with his hands and feet and the simplest tools."

Quotes About Wellington

"The soldier—that is, the great soldier—of to-day is not a romantic animal, dashing at forlorn hopes, animated by frantic sentiment, full of fancies as to a love-lady or a sovereign; but a quiet, grave man, busied in charts, exact in sums, master of the art of tactics, occupied in trivial detail; thinking, as the Duke of Wellington was said to do, most of the shoes of his soldiers; despising all manner of èclat and eloquence; perhaps, like Count Moltke, ‘silent in seven languages." - Author: Walter Bagehot

Quotes About Independence And Self Reliance

"Over the years, Americans in particular have been all too willing to squander their hard-earned independence and freedom for the illusion of feeling safe under someone elses authority. The concept of self-sufficiency has been undermined in value over a scant few generations.

Quotes About Deciding For Yourself

"Friendship is less simple. It is long and hard to obtain but when one has it theres no getting rid of it; one simply has to cope with it. Dont think for a minute that your friends will telephone you every evening, as they ought to, in order to find out if this doesnt happen to be the evening when you are deciding to commit suicide, or simply whether you dont need company, whether you are not in the mood to go out. No, dont worry, theyll ring up the evening you are not alone, when life is beautiful. As for suicide, they would be more likely to push you to it, by virtue of what you owe to yourself, according to them. May heaven protect us, cher Monsieur, from being set upon a pedestal by our friends!" - Author: Albert Camus
