I have never heard anything about the resolutions of the apostles, but a good deal about their acts.

Praying without ceasing is not ritualized, nor are there even words. It is a constant state of awareness of oneness with God.
The other day I got out my can-opener and was opening a can of worms when I thought, What am I doing?!
Always forgive your enemies -- nothing annoys them so much.
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
Society often forgives the criminal; it never forgives the dreamer.
A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.
Discontent is the first step in the progress of a man or a nation.
The only thing to do with good advice is to pass it on. It is never of any use to oneself.

America had often been discovered before Columbus, but it had always been hushed up.
To be good, according to the vulgar standard of goodness, is obviously quite easy. It merely requires a certain amount of sordid terror, a certain lack of imaginative thought, and a certain low passion for middle-class respectability.
Whenever a man does a thoroughly stupid thing, it is always from the noblest motives.

The only thing that one really knows about human nature is that it changes. Change is the one quality we can predicate of it. The systems that fail are those that rely on the permanency of human nature, and not on its growth and development. The error of Louis XIV was that he thought human nature would always be the same. The result of his error was the French Revolution. It was an admirable result.
Man is made for something better than disturbing dirt.
Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.
There is only one thing in the world worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.
To lose one parent may be regarded as a misfortune... to lose both seems like carelessness.
