Who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image, but thee who destroys a good book, kills reason itself.

There is no great genius without a mixture of madness.
Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Man will do many things to get himself loved; he will do all things to get himself envied.
Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life. The conviction of the rich that the poor are happier is no more foolish than the conviction of the poor that the rich are.
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native American criminal class except Congress.
We always love those who admire us; we do not always love those whom we admire.
Vision is the art of seeing things invisible.
Failure is in a sense the highway to success, as each discovery of what is false leads us to seek earnestly after what is true.
I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for religion --I have shuddered at it. I shudder no more --I could be martyred for my religion --Love is my religion --I could die for that.
Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear.
I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections, and the truth of imagination.
Thank Heaven! the crisis --The danger, is past, and the lingering illness, is over at last --, and the fever called Living is conquered at last.
I have great faith in fools; My friends call it self-confidence.
One approaches the journey's end. But the end is a goal, not a catastrophe.
People of genius whenever they are faced with misfortune find resources within themselves.
Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round heads in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them. Disagree with them. Glorify, or vilify them. But the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world
Are the ones who do.
Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.
Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.
Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right!
There are some people who live in a dream world, and there are some who face reality; and then there are those who turn one into the other.
To sentence a man of true genius, to the drudgery of a school is to put a racehorse on a treadmill.
Ability without honor is useless.
Don't be dismayed at good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
Your friends will know you better in the first minute they meet you than your acquaintances will know you in a thousand years.
Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate. If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich. Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.
True happiness is the full use of your powers along lines of excellence in a life affording scope.
I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit.
Ambition is so powerful a passion in the human breast, that however high we reach we are never satisfied.
Hatred is gained as much by good works as by evil.
There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understands neither for itself nor through others. This first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third kind useless.
Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.
Every man who is high up loves to think that he has done it all himself; and the wife smiles, and lets it go at that.
Judge a person by their questions, rather than their answers.
To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do.
Prejudices are what fools use for reason.
I know of nothing more laughable than a doctor who does not die of old age.
Our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's future. And we are all mortal.
He felt that his whole life was some kind of dream and he sometimes wondered whose it was and whether they were enjoying it.
The universe seems to me infinitely strange and foreign. At such a moment I gaze upon it with a mixture of anguish and euphoria; separate from the universe, as though placed at a certain distance outside it; I look and I see pictures, creatures that move in a kind of timeless time and spaceless space, emitting sounds that are a kind of language I no longer understand or ever register.
What to do if you find yourself stuck in a crack in the ground underneath a giant boulder you can't move, with no hope of rescue. Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your current circumstances seems more likely, consider how lucky you are that it won't be troubling you much longer.
There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.
Flying is learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.
