~.~ I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself. ~.~ "The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future." ~ "After I'm dead I'd rather have people ask why I have no monument than why I have one." ~ "A truly great book should be read in youth, again in maturity and once more in old age." ~ "To be amused by what you read--that is the great spring of happy quotations." ~ "Education begins a gentleman, conversation completes him." ~ "I am a part of all that I have met." ~ "I could prove God statistically. Take the human body alone - the chances that all the functions of an individual would just happen is a statistical monstrosity." ~ "I tell you everything that is really nothing, and nothing of what is everything, do not be fooled by what I am saying. Please listen carefully and try to hear what I am not saying." ~ "Do not seek to follow in the footsteps of the wise. Seek what they sought."
