What is human warfare but just this; an effort to make the laws of God and nature take sides with one party.
But I'm going to be a real good boy and take it day by day and try to concentrate on what's most important to me, and that's offering women a service.
Take risks. Ask big questions. Don't be afraid to make mistakes; if you don't make mistakes, you're not reaching far enough.
Religion was nearly dead because there was no longer real belief in future life; but something was struggling to take its place - service - social service - the ants creed, the bees creed.
Let the tutor not merely require a verbal account of what the boy has been taught but the meaning and the substance of it:let him judge how the child has profited from it not from the evidence of his memory but from that of his life. Let him take what the boy has just learned and make him show him dozens of different aspects of it andthen apply it to just as many different subjects, in order to find out whether he has really grasped it and make it part of himself,judging the boy's progress by what Plato taught about education. Spewing up food exactly as you have swallowed it is evidence of a failureto digest and assimilate it; the stomach has not done its job if, during concoction, it fails to change the substance and the form of what it is given.
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.
The mind of a human being is formed only of comparisons made in order to examine analogies, and therefore cannot precede the existence of memory.
With love, you should go ahead and take the risk of getting hurt... because love is an amazing feeling.

Life has no meaning unless one lives it with a will, at least to the limit of one's will. Virtue, good, evil are nothing but words, unless one takes them apart in order to build something with them; they do not win their true meaning until one knows how to apply them.
Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with deeper meaning.
Everything tells me that I am about to make a wrong decision, but making mistakes is just part of life. What does the world want of me? Does it want me to take no risks, to go back to where I came from because I didn't have the courage to say "yes" to life?
Any time you take a chance you better be sure the rewards are worth the risk because they can put you away just as fast for a ten dollar heist as they can for a million dollar job.
Words mean more than what is set down on paper. It takes the human voice to infuse them with shades of deeper meaning.
One of the signs of passing youth is the birth of a sense of fellowship with other human beings as we take our place among them.
What constitutes a real, live human being is more of a mystery than ever these days, and men each one of whom is a valuable, unique experiment on the part of nature are shot down wholesale.
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Mathematicians have tried in vain to this day to discover some order in the sequence of prime numbers, and we have reason to believe that it is a mystery into which the human mind will never penetrate.
Devout believers are safeguarded in a high degree against the risk of certain neurotic illnesses; their acceptance of the universal neurosis spares them the task of constructing a personal one.
Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one has better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one's ideas, to take a calculated risk - and to act.
I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone - the chances that all the functions of an individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity.
To the real artist in humanity, what are called bad manners are often the most picturesque and significant of all.
I completely take on the risk, the poker game, which being an artist means, and I'm going to try to make a film which honestly reflects what I have in my head.
