Quotes Above Compiled From The Daily Cougar"
We do not count a man's years until he has nothing else to count -Ralph Waldo Emerson- The same wind snuffs candles yet kindles fires; so, where absence kills a little love, it fans a great one. -Francois De La Rochefoucauld- In all pointed sentences, some degree of accuracy must be sacrificed to conciseness -Dr. Samuel Johnson- A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one would find fault with what he has done. -Cardinal Newman To live is not merely to breathe: it is to act; it is to make use of our organs, senses, faculties-of all those parts of ourselves which give us the feeling of existence -Jean Jacques Rousseau Advertising is the modern substitute for argument; its function is to make the worse appear the better. -George Santayana I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today -William Allen White When you say that you agree to a thing in principle you mean that you have not the slightest intention of carrying it out. -Prince Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck Schonhausen Beware of him that is slow to anger; for when it is long coming, it is the stronger when it comes, and the longer kept. Abused patience turns to fury. -Francis Quarles It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle it without debate -Joseph Joubert The best way to keep one's word is not to give it -Napeleon Bonaparte Just as you are unconsciously influenced by outside advertisement, announcement, and appeal, so you can vitally influence your life from within by auto-suggestion. The first thing each morning, and the last thing each night, suggest to yourself specific ideas that you wish to embody in your character and personality. Address such suggestions to yourself, silently or aloud, until they are deeply impressed upon your mind. -Grenville Kleiser Never stand begging for that which you have to power to earn -Miguel De Cervantes One of the curious things about censorship is that no one seems to want it for himself. We want censorship to protect someone else-the young, the unstable, the suggestible, the stupid. I have never heard of anyone who wanted a film banned because otherwise he might see it and be harmed. To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must cultivate our personal life; and to cultivate our personal life, we must first set our hearts right. -Confucius Individuals who always insist upon having the last word in an argument should remember that sometimes the last word is "ouch!" A vacation should be just long enough for the boss to miss you, and not long enough for him to discover how well he can get along without you. A man's burden can be made a bridge for his progress. We should direct our actions and energy toward what we are for. By doing so, we automatically let others know what we are against. It is not merely saving time that makes for progress, but how we utilize the time saved.

"Study without reflection is a waste of time; reflection without study is dangerous" -Confucius- "A lawyer commits a mistake everytime he argues a case; each case he argues, he unintentionally breaks a rule. Several times after breaking it, the rule disappears forever." -The Rainmaker- "In the consciousness of the truth he has perceived, man now sees everywhere only the awfulness or the absurdity of existence...and loathing seizes him." -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche- "Madness is something rare in individuals- but in groups, parties, peoples, ages it is a rule." -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche- "The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently." -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche- "A person behaves with unintentional nobleness when he has accustomed himself to seek naught from others and always to give to them." -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche- "The thinker, as likewise the artist, who has put his best self into his works, feels an almost malicious joy when he sees how mind and body are being slowly damaged and destroyed by time, as if from a dark corner he sere spying a thief at his money-chest, knowing all the time that it was empty and his treasures in safety." -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche- "When anyone thinks much and to good purpose, not only his face but also his body acquires a sage look." -Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche- "When you sit in front of a computer, there is good and evil competing for your mind; ask God to be on your side." -Touched by An Angel- "Whoever created the universe in the beginning must had a good reason for not allowing living things to see their future, preventing humans from going at a speed faster than light, and block them from going back in time. Whatever the reason may be, we must respect it." -Khanh Le Bui- "The world is an inferno full of darkness and evil, and there are only two ways of dealing it. The first is easy and wrong, to accept it and become part of it. The second is harder and right. You fight it and recognize those who aren't evil and help them endure." -Sherherazard- "I don't know if it was wrong doing it; But I know that the reasons for doing it were wrong." -Touched by an Angel- "If all life is a play, where does the audiance sit?" -Erich Backlus- "There are drawings that you can contemplate; There are some that you can stroll through; and then, there are those that you want to stay forever. Those, by far, are the best. -King-Su- "Looking back at my village, I sometimes think how tiny life is." -Me- "Why do people rebuild things they know are going to be destroyed? Why do people cling to life when they know they can't live forever." -Kefka- "I imagine the reason that people hold on to hatred so stubbornly is because if the hate is removed, the pain will set it." -James Baldwin- "If you stop and think about it, each day passed by is a day nearer to your death." -Khanh Le Bui- "Growing old is kinda like the onion rings. When you're eleven, you would think you're an entirely new person, but no. Those times when you cry running toward you mom is still very alive. When you're eleven, you're 10, 9,8,7.... -Eleven- "As to the Prescidency, the two happiest days of my life were those of my entrance upon the office and m surrender of it." -Martin Van Buren- "May God save the country, for it is obvious the people will not." -Millard Fillmore- "Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." -Abraham Lincoln- "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." -Franklin D. Roosevelt- "Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country." -John F. Kennedy- What is the meaning of life? Such a foolish question, is this. Why must we have meaning for everything? Is it the fact that we are such an inquisitive species, or is it the fact that if no meaning is found for a question such as this, then our lives would be totally pointless? We are taught that if something does not have meaning it is a pointless thing, but this is not true with life. Life is all we know, therefore, we think it is all we have. -Dothan Frost- It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives. _btiv1_ GREAT people talk about ideas.....

	You can only go as far as you push.

	stop crying is the person who made you cry?

	Nobody is perfect until you fall in love with them.

	Everything is okay in the end.  If it's not okay, then

	He, who loses a friend, loses much more;
	He, who loses faith, loses all.

	Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, But
	beautiful old people are works of art.

	Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live
	long enough to make them all yourself.

	Yesterday is history
	Tomorrow is mystery.
	Today is a gift, and that is why they call it the
	present.

	The toughest thing in business is minding your own.

	"It is not so much where we are in life, but in which direction we are headed."
	
	Life's a dance you learn as you go, sometimes you lead sometimes you follow.

	To be prepared for a speech and not be asked to speak is even worse than 
	being asked when unprepared.

	A political speech pleases all. Those who agree think it over, and those 
	who don't are glad it is over.

	"I always like speaking to ladies. When I talk to men I know that what I 
	say goes in one ear and out the other. But what I tell ladies goes in both 
	ears and comes out the mouth.
								-Kent Leavitt-

	If a thing goes without saying, let it.

	The more you say, the less people remember. 
							      -Francois Fenelon-


	An after-dinner speech is like a love letter. Ideally, you should begin by 
	not knowing what you are going to say, and end by not knowing what 
	you have said.      -Jowitt-
	
	Speak when you're angry and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.
	
	It is better to leave your audience before your audience leaves you.
	
	Sometimes the difference between a good speaker and a poor speaker is 
	a comfortable nap.
	
	"Each of us here," the speaker began, "has a job to do in this hour. 
	Mine is to talk and yours is to listen. My hope is that you will not 
	finish your job before I finish mine."

	The strength of a speech IS depth, not length.

	Some people speak from experience. Others-from experience-don't speak.
