Man, alone, has the power to transform his thoughts into physical reality; man, alone, can dream and make his dreams come true.
If you're suddenly doing something you don't want to do for four years, just so you've got something to fall back on, by the time you come out you don't have that 16-year-old drive any more and you'll spend your life doing something you never wanted to do in the first place.
You that would judge me, do not judge alone this book or that, come to this hallowed place where my friends' portraits hang and look thereon; Ireland's history in their lineaments trace; think where man's glory most begins and ends and say my glory was I had such friends.
No duty the Executive had to perform was so trying as to put the right man in the right place.
How does it become a man to behave towards the American government today? I answer, that he cannot without disgrace be associated with it.
A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference.
That government is the strongest of which every man feels himself a part.
Without love a man is just a body, an empty temple without the deity. With love the deity arrives, the temple is no more empty.
You must understand that love never keeps a man from pursuing his Personal Legend. If he abandons that pursuit, it's because it wasn't a true love.. the love that speaks the language of the world.
If a man aspires to the highest place, it is no dishonor to him to halt at the second, or even at the third.
It is a waste of energy to be angry with a man who behaves badly, just as it is to be angry with a car that won't go.
Words impress me. If a man can speak eloquently and beautifully to me, I just melt on the floor.
There are two contrary impulses which govern this man's brain-the one sane, and the other eccentric. They alternate at regular intervals.
When man becomes reconciled to nature, when space becomes his true background, these words and concepts will have lost their meaning, and we will no longer have to use them.
The true measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he would never be caught.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one's family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one's own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him.
Why one man rather than another? It was odd. You find yourself involved with a fellow for life just because he was the one that you met when you were nineteen.
I feel as though the camera is almost a kind of voyeur in Mr. Bean's life, and you just watch this bizarre man going about his life in the way that he wants to.
When I'm ready to make a photograph, I think I quite obviously see in my minds eye something that is not literally there in the true meaning of the word. I'm interested in something which is built up from within, rather than just extracted from without.
There's place and means for every man alive.
There is no true love save in suffering, and in this world we have to choose either love, which is suffering, or happiness. Man is the more man - that is, the more divine - the greater his capacity for suffering, or rather, for anguish.
A man may imagine things that are false, but he can only understand things that are true, for if the things be false, the apprehension of them is not understanding.
The man who occupies the first place seldom plays the principal part.
I'm just a true Irish boy at heart.
