The wind is at your back
But it won't matter
If you don't raise your sails.

We look forward to the time
When the Power of Love
Will replace the Love of Power.
Then will our world know
The blessings of Peace.

Oliver Wendell Holmes attended a meeting
In which he was the shortest man present.

Dr. Holmes, quipped a friend, I should think you'd feel rather small
Among us big fellows.

I do, retorted Holmes. I feel like a dime among a lot of pennies.

Don't let loneliness make you connect with toxic people. Don't drink poison just because you're thirsty.

Mountain to show others
It. Can. Be. Moved.

Re: "Quotables"

I wasn't born here. But I have a love for this country and its people that knows no bounds. I will forever be grateful to America for going into World War II, when it had nothing to gain, in a country that was far away and rescued my mother from the Nazi German concentration camps. She is alive and I am alive because of America. And, if you have a problem with America, you have a problem with me.

The ultimate mystery of humankind
of this world
and of the universe
is Woman.

The ultimate fate of humankind
of this world
and of the universe
is in the 'Fire of Woman.'

"If you expect the world to be fair
with you because you are fair,
you're fooling yourself. That's like
expecting the lion to not eat you
because you didn't eat him."
