You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending.

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

If you're going through hell, keep going.

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

 image quote by C. S. Lewis

We are what we believe we are.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.

Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people's idea of it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.

Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

 image quote by Winston Churchill

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.

The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.

You will never do anything in this world without courage.

It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.

It seems to me that the natural world is the greatest source of excitement;

the greatest source of visual beauty; the greatest source of intellectual interest. It is the greatest source of so much in life that makes life worth living.

Do not be embarrassed by your failures, learn from them and start again.

 image quote by John Lubbock

What we see depends mainly on what we look for.

Grief is the price we pay for love.

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.

In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

 image quote by Winston Churchill

Tact is the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forwad for the trip.

Smell the sea and feel the sky.

It is our choices, Harry, that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.

Don't shine so that others can see you. Shine so that through you, others can see HIM.

Chandeliers are marvels of drop-dead showiness, the jewellery of architecture.

Believe in God like you believe in the sunrise.

Not because you can see it, but because you can see all it touches.

The Christian does not think God will love us because we are good, but that God will make us good because He loves us.

 image quote by George Orwell

The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.

If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.

Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.

She dares me to pour myself out like a living waterfall.

She dares me to enter the soul that is more than my own; she extinguishes fear in mere seconds. She lets light come through.

Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what you think is right and stick to it.

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. What the Good Life Really Means?

Never give up on something that you can’t go a day without thinking about.

 image quote by C. S. Lewis

Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different.

If you want to see the true measure of a man, watch how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.

I'm just the mere shadow of my former selfishness. I crave the silhouette of your kiss.

You cannot warm the hearts of people with God's love if they have an empty stomach and cold feet.

Were women to "unsex" themselves by claiming equality with men, they would become the most hateful, heathen, and disgusting of beings and would surely perish without male protection.

 image quote by Winston Churchill

You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.

We must find new lands from which we can easily obtain raw materials and at the same time exploit the cheap slave labor that is available from the natives of the colonies. The colonies would also provide a dumping ground for the surplus goods produced in our factories.

The truth is: the natural world is changing.

And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.

Most Christians would like to send their recruits to Bible college for five years. I would like to send them to hell for five minutes. That would do more than anything else to prepare them for a lifetime of compassionate ministry.

Diplomacy is the art of telling people to go to hell in such a way that they ask for directions.

The first step in a fascist movement is the combination under an energetic leader of a number of men who possess more than the average share of leisure, brutality, and stupidity. The next step is to fascinate fools and muzzle the intelligent, by emotional excitement on the one hand and terrorism on the other.

 image quote by George Eliot

Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms.

Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.

If you're not a liberal at twenty you have no heart, if you're not a conservative at forty, you have no brain.
