Now is the time to understand /
That all your ideas of right and wrong /
Were just a child's training wheels /
To be laid aside /
When you finally live /
With veracity /
And love.

-Hafez, poet (1315-1390)

Languages differ essentially in what they must convey and not in what they may convey.
-Roman Jakobson, linguist (1896-1982)

-----

The world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful.
-E.E. Cummings, poet (1894-1962)

-----

Translation is the art of erasing oneself in order to speak in another's voice.
-David Cole, professor, author, and correspondent (b. 1958)

-----

In all life one should comfort the afflicted, but verily, also, one should afflict the comfortable, and especially when they are comfortably, contentedly, even happily wrong.
-John Kenneth Galbraith, economist (1908-2006)

While fame impedes and constricts, obscurity wraps about a man like a mist; obscurity is dark, ample, and free; obscurity lets the mind take its way unimpeded. Over the obscure man is poured the merciful suffusion of darkness. None knows where he goes or comes. He may seek the truth and speak it; he alone is free; he alone is truthful, he alone is at peace.
-Virginia Woolf, writer (1882-1941)

-----

If any man seeks for greatness, let him forget greatness and ask for truth, and he will find both.
-Horace Mann, educational reformer (1796-1859)

-----

It has always seemed strange to me that in our endless discussions about education so little stress is laid on the pleasure of becoming an educated person, the enormous interest it adds to life. To be able to be caught up into the world of thought -- that is to be educated.
-Edit Hamilton, educator and writer (1867-1963)

Wow... tremendo quote... Una frase lamentablemente los líderes mundiales y políticos locales no han sabido aplicar.

--Si, ah! Y es que nuestros políticos hispanoamericanos (nunca digas "latinoamericanos") casi nunca han estudiado a los grandes pensadores.... ellos tienen la impresión de que se les puede ocurrir es un gran pensamiento!! bp

Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.
-Edmund Burke, statesman and writer (1729-1797)

-----

When I feel inclined to read poetry, I take down my dictionary. The poetry of words is quite as beautiful as the poetry of sentences. The author may arrange the gems effectively, but their shape and lustre have been given by the attrition of ages.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr., writer and physician (1809-1894)

-----

If only I could so live and so serve the world that after me there should never again be birds in cages.
-Isak Dinesen (pen name of Karen Blixen), author (1885-1962)

Earth is here so kind, that just tickle her with a hoe and she laughs with a harvest.
-Douglas William Jerrold, playwright and humorist (1803-1857)

-----

Be good and you will be lonesome.
-Mark Twain, author and humorist (1835-1910)

-----


For all our conceits about being the center of the universe, we live in a routine planet of a humdrum star stuck away in an obscure corner ... on an unexceptional galaxy which is one of about 100 billion galaxies. ... That is the fundamental fact of the universe we inhabit, and it is very good for us to understand that.
-Carl Sagan, astronomer and writer (1934-1996)

Ten Thoughts to Ponder

Number 10
Life is sexually transmitted.

Number 9
Good health is merely the slowest possible
rate at which one can die.

Number 8
Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny.
If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich ..

Number 7
Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day,
teach a person to use the Internet and they will not bother you for weeks.

Number 6
Some people are like a Slinky ...
not really good for anything, but you
still cannot help but smile when
you shove them down the stairs.

Number 5
Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday,
lying in hospitals, dying of nothing.

Number 4
All of us could take a lesson from the weather.
It pays no attention to criticism.

Number 3
Why does a slight tax increase cost you $200.00,
and a substantial tax cut saves you $30.00?

Number 2
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird.
Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

And The Number 1 Thought
Life is like a jar of Jalapeno peppers;
what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.

- - - and as someone recently said to me: "Do not worry about old age; it does not last!

As far as I'm concerned, 'whom' is a word that was invented to make everyone sound like a butler.
-Calvin Trillin, writer (b. 1935)

-----


Gold in its native state is but dull, unornamental stuff, and only lowborn metals excite the admiration of the ignorant with an ostentatious glitter. However, like the rest of the world, I still go on underrating men of gold and glorifying men of mica.
-Mark Twain, author and humorist (1835-1910)

-----

Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind. Absolve you to yourself, and you shall have the suffrage of the world.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer and philosopher (1803-1882)

-----

We are all of us more or less echoes, repeating involuntarily the virtues, the defects, the movements, and the characters of those among whom we live.
-Joseph Joubert, essayist (1754-1824)

-----

They are happy men whose natures sort with their vocations.
-Francis Bacon, essayist, philosopher, and statesman (1561-1626)

-----

I once met a man who had forgiven an injury. I hope some day to meet the man who has forgiven an insult.
-Charles Buxton, brewer, philanthropist, writer, and politician (1823-1871)

-----

The living language is like a cow-path: it is the creation of the cows themselves, who, having created it, follow it or depart from it according to their whims or their needs. From daily use, the path undergoes change. A cow is under no obligation to stay.
-E.B. White, writer (1899-1985)

One man meets an infamous punishment for that crime which confers a diadem upon another.
-Juvenal, poet (c. 60-140)

-----

Some men of a secluded and studious life have sent forth from their closet or their cloister, rays of intellectual light that have agitated courts and revolutionized kingdoms; like the moon which, though far removed from the ocean, and shining upon it with a serene and sober light, is the chief cause of all those ebbings and flowings which incessantly disturb that restless world of waters.
-Charles Caleb Colton, author and clergyman (1780-1832)

-----

I hate with a murderous hatred those men who, having lived their youth, would send into war other youth, not lived, unfulfilled, to fight and die for them; the pride and cowardice of those old men, making their wars that boys must die.
-Mary Roberts Rinehart, novelist (1876-1958)

-----

Morality is the custom of one's country and the current feeling of one's peers. Cannibalism is moral in a cannibal country.
-Samuel Butler, writer (1835-1902)

-----

English usage is sometimes more than mere taste, judgment, and education -- sometimes it's sheer luck, like getting across the street.
-E.B. White, writer (1899-1985)

A man should live with his superiors as he does with his fire: not too near, lest he burn; nor too far off, lest he freeze.
-Diogenes, philosopher (412?-323 BCE)

-----

In youth we feel richer for every new illusion; in maturer years, for every one we lose.
-Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine, mystic (1782-1857)

-----


Poetry, indeed, cannot be translated; and, therefore, it is the poets that preserve the languages; for we would not be at the trouble to learn a language if we could have all that is written in it just as well in a translation. But as the beauties of poetry cannot be preserved in any language except that in which it was originally written, we learn the language.
-Samuel Johnson, lexicographer (1709-1784)

-----

How easy to be amiable in the midst of happiness and success.
-Madame Anne Sophie Swetchine, mystic (1782-1857)

-----

Truth, in matters of religion, is simply the opinion that has survived.
-Oscar Wilde, writer (1854-1900)
