more African Proverb quotes

more American Library Association quotes
Truth always originates in a minority of one, and every custom begins as a broken precedent.
more Nancy Astor quotes
Near our vineyard there was a pear tree laden with fruit that was not attractive in either flavor or form. One night, when I [at the age of sixteen] had played until dark on the sandlot with some other juvenile delinquents, we went to shake that tree and carry off its fruit. From it we carried off huge loads, not to feast on, but to throw to the pigs, although we did eat a few ourselves. We did it just because it was forbidden.
more Saint Augustine quotes
I'm a foe of moderation, the champion of excess. If I may lift a line from a die-hard whose identity is lost in the shuffle, "I'd rather be strongly wrong than weakly right."
more Tallulah Bankhead quotes
There are three schoolmasters for everybody that will employ them - the senses, intelligent companions, and books.

more Justice Hugo L. Black quotes

more Alan Bloom quotes
A free man is he who does not fear to go to the end of his thought.
more Leon Blum quotes
Men are wise in proportion, not to their experience, but to their capacity for experience.
more James Boswell quotes
It is proof of a base and low mind for one to wish to think with the masses or majority, merely because the majority is the majority. Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people.
more Giordano Bruno quotes
It is well for people who think to change their minds occasionally in order to keep them clean. For those who do not think, it is best at least to rearrange their prejudices once in a while.
more Luther Burbank quotes
As compared with impulsive commitment to the first idea which dawns, that is, with intuitive action, reasoning is patient, exploratory of other possibilities, and deliberative.
more Edwin Arthur Burtt quotes
An intellectual is someone whose mind watches itself.
more Albert Camus quotes
The theory of free speech, that truth is so much larger and stranger and more many-sided than we know of, that it is very much better at all costs to hear everyone’s account of it, is a theory which has been justified on the whole by experiment, but which remains a very daring and even a very surprising theory. It is really one of the great discoveries of the modern time.
more Gilbert Keith Chesterton quotes
Every reform, however necessary, will by weak minds be carried to an excess, that itself will need reforming.
more Samuel Taylor Coleridge quotes
By nature men are pretty much alike; it is learning and practice that set them apart.
more Confucius quotes
To be nobody but yourself -- in a world which is doing it's best, night and day, to make you like everybody else -- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight, and never stop fighting.
more e. e. cummings quotes
False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often endure long; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, for everyone takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness; and when this is done, one path towards error is closed and the road to truth is often at the same time opened.
more Charles Darwin quotes
If librarianship is the connecting of people to ideas – and I believe that is the truest definition of what we do – it is crucial to remember that we must keep and make available, not just good ideas and noble ideas, but bad ideas, silly ideas, and yes, even dangerous or wicked ideas.
more Graceanne A. Decandido quotes
We cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.
more Max DePree quotes
Mankind likes to think in terms of extreme opposites. It is given to formulating its beliefs in terms of Either/Ors, between which it recognizes no intermediate possibilities.
more John Dewey quotes
Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much, are the three pillars of learning.
more Benjamin Disraeli quotes
I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work.
more Thomas A. Edison quotes
Restless is discontent and discontent is the first necessity of progress.
more Thomas A. Edison quotes
The important thing is never to stop questioning.
more Albert Einstein quotes
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
more Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes
The civilized man has a moral obligation to be skeptical, to demand the credentials of all statements that claim to be facts.
more Bergan Evans quotes
Moderation in all things -- including moderation.
more Benjamin Franklin quotes

more Margaret Fuller quotes
In questions of science the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
more Galileo Galilei quotes
I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with sense, reason, and  intellect has intended us to forgo their use.
more Galileo Galilei quotes
Humanity's most valuable assets have been the non-conformists. Were it not for the non-conformists, he who refuses to be satisfied to go along with the continuance of things as they are, and insists upon attempting to find new ways of bettering things, the world would have known little progress, indeed.
more Josiah William Gitt quotes
A truly great library contains something in it to offend everyone.
more Jo Godwin quotes
Lose this day loitering 'Twill be the same old story, Tomorrow and the next, Even more dilatory. Whatever you would do, Or dream of doing, begin it! Boldness has power, genius, and magic in it. Begin it now.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
All truly wise thoughts have been thought already thousands of times; but to make them truly ours, we must think them over again honestly, till they take root in our personal experience.
more Johann Wolfgang von Goethe quotes
You miss 100% of the shots you never take.
more Wayne Gretzky quotes
Advances are made by answering questions. Discoveries are made by questioning answers.
more Bernhard Haisch quotes
There can be no freedom without freedom to fail.
more Eric Hoffer quotes
I can't stand to sing the same song the same way two nights in succession. If you can, then it ain't music, it's close order drill, or exercise or yodeling or something, not music.

more Horace quotes
It is the great parent of science & of virtue: and that a nation will be great in both, always in proportion as it is free.
more Thomas Jefferson quotes
Where a new invention promises to be useful, it ought to be tried.
more Thomas Jefferson quotes
Among the innumerable mortifications which waylay human arrogance on every side may well be reckoned our ignorance of the most common objects and effects, a defect of which we become more sensible by every attempt to supply it. Vulgar and inactive minds confound familiarity with knowledge and conceive themselves informed of the whole nature of things when they are shown their form or told their use; but the speculatist, who is not content with superficial views, harasses himself with fruitless curiosity, and still, as he inquires more, perceives only that he knows less.
more Dr. Samuel Johnson quotes
In questions of law or of fact conscience is very often confounded with opinion. No man’s conscience can tell him the rights of another man; they must be known by rational investigation or historical inquiry.
more Dr. Samuel Johnson quotes
Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must be first overcome.
more Dr. Samuel Johnson quotes
The skeptic does not mean him who doubts, but him who investigates or researches, as opposed to him who asserts and thinks he has found.
more Miguel Deunamuno Y Jugo quotes
