Lucretius Quotes

"Pleasant it is, when over a great sea the winds trouble the waters, to gaze from shore upon anothers great tribulation; not because any mans troubles are a delectable joy, but because to perceive you are free of them yourself is pleasant."

Gustav Kafka Quotes

"Its entirely conceivable that lifes splendor surrounds us all, and always in its complete fullness, accessible but veiled, beneath the surface, invisible, far away. But there it lies—not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If we call it by the right word, by the right name, then it comes. This is the essence of magic, which doesnt create but calls."

Eha Quotes

"Must the interest of life wane for us all as the progress of knowledge curtails the playground of imagination? No doubt it must in some measure, but there is another cause.I believe that in these days we have too many occupations, too many interests; we know too many things, and, if you will, have too many advantages and facilities. Our faculty of taking an interest is dissipated and frittered away."

Quotes About Forced Happiness

"Her experience had been of a kind to teach her, rightly or wrongly, that the doubtful honor of a brief transit through a sorry world hardly called for effusiveness, even when the path was suddenly irradiated at some half-way point by daybeams rich as hers. But her strong sense that neither she nor any human being deserved less than was given, did not blind her to the fact that there were others receiving less who had deserved much more. And in being forced to class herself among the fortunate she did not cease to wonder at the persistence of the unforeseen, when the one to whom such unbroken tranquility had been accorded in the adult stage was she whose youth had seemed to teach that happiness was but the occasional episode in a general drama of pain." - Author: Thomas Hardy

Quotes About Unalienable Rights

"Either ‘the group is superior or the individual is superior. Marxism, socialism, fascism, and pure democracy are all forms that give power to ‘the group and then use violence to force individuals to obey the dictates of ‘the group. The concept of liberty is one in which the individual - in the exercise of his unalienable rights - is superior to every and all powers. That is what the Founders intended. That is what we are supposed to have under the ‘contracts of the Declaration of Independence and the state and federal constitutions. That is what I am entitled to as an American. That is what I insist upon. And that is what I will kill for." - Author: Dave Champion
