[Men Fear Thought As They Fear Nothing Else On Earth -- More Than Ruin, More Even Than Death. Thought Is Subversive And Revolutionary, Destructive And Terrible, Thought Is Merciless To Privilege, Established Institutions, And Comfortable Habits; Thought Is Anarchic And Lawless, Indifferent To Authority, Careless Of The Well-tried Wisdom Of The Ages. Thought Looks Into The Pit Of Hell And Is Not Afraid ... Thought Is Great And Swift And Free, The Light Of The World, And The Chief Glory Of Man.]

"All they expect from you is your best effort. These Marines think that they are special. They are very well trained, very close knit, and they dont like outsiders. If you want their respect, you will have to earn it."

Sir Sidney Lee Quotes

"I told you in the course of this paper that Shakespeare had a sister; but do not look for her in Sir Sidney Lees life of the poet. She died young--alas, she never wrote a word. She lies buried where the omnibuses now stop, opposite the Elephant and Castle. Now my belief is that this poet who never wrote a word and was buried at the crossroads still lives. She lives in you and in me, and in many other women who are not here tonight, for they are washing up the dishes and putting the children to bed. But she lives; for great poets do not die; they are continuing presences; they need only the opportunity to walk among us in the flesh."

Quotes About Mothers And Sons

"JANE: What to do when it is that time in your girl childs life:1. Sit down calmly and explain sex to her?2. Buy her a book, video, or CD that gives her the details?3.

Quotes About Building Walls

Quotes About Hereafter

"But the long tunnels of art through which I walked in Rome that day had no ragged edges, cowardly colors, or shades of pastel that didnt know what to do with themselves. The wisdom, perfection, and beauty of the colors and forms I passed were more than enough, in their collectivity, to hint at the principles which govern the hereafter, whatever that may be. Indeed, even a detail of one painting can offer solid direction in this regard if one knows how to look" - Author: Mark Helprin
