Best Quotations

"Honor does not have to be defended."

Robert J. Sawyer
"I cannot believe that the purpose of life is (merely) to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate. I think it is above all to matter, to count, to stand for something. To have it make some difference that you lived at all."

Leo Rosten
"He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature."

Socrates
"It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends."

J. K. Rowling
"There is no more miserable human being than one in whom nothing is habitual but indecision."

William James
