Quotes:

Few influential people involved with the Internet claim that it is a good in and of itself. It is a powerful tool for solving social problems, just as it is a tool for making money, finding lost relatives, receiving medical advice, or, come to that, trading instructions for making bombs.
View quotes by Esther Dyson

No matter how much Bill Gates may claim otherwise, he missed the Internet, like a barreling freight train that he didn't hear or see coming.
View quotes by Jim Clark

View quotes by Uri Geller

Don't aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.
View quotes by David Frost

To follow without halt, one aim; there is the secret of success. And success? What is it? I do not find it in the applause of the theatre. It lies rather in the satisfaction of accomplishment.
View quotes by Anna Pavlova

The optimist proclaims that we live in the best of all possible worlds; and the pessimist fears this is true
View quotes by James Branch Cabell

I don't really trust men who claim they are not interested in porn
View quotes by Moby

Aim at heaven and you get Earth thrown in. Aim at Earth and you get neither.
View quotes by C S Lewis

Was it through his grandfather or his grandmother that he claimed his descent from a monkey? (Addressed to T. H. Huxley)
View quotes by Samuel Wilberforce

A prince should therefore have no other aim or thought, nor take up any other thing for his study but war and it organization and discipline, for that is the only art that is necessary to one who commands.
View quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli

There are two things to aim at in life: first, to get what you want; and, after that, to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind achieve the second. - Life and Human Nature
View quotes by Logan Pearsall Smith

All sorts of computer errors are now turning up. You'd be surprised to know the number of doctors who claim they are treating pregnant men.
View quotes by Isaac Asimov

Most people have never learned that one of the main aims in life is to enjoy it.
View quotes by Samuel Butler

Methods of thought which claim to give the lead to our world in the name of revolution have become, in reality, ideologies of consent and not of rebellion.
View quotes by Albert Camus

For centuries the death penalty, often accompanied by barbarous refinements, has been trying to hold crime in check; yet crime persists. Why? Because the instincts that are warring in man are not, as the law claims, constant forces in a state of equilibrium.

View quotes by Albert Camus

'Tis merely a flesh wound. (Soldier claims when beheaded)
View quotes by Monty Python

There are certain things in which mediocrity is intolerable: poetry, music, painting, public eloquence. What torture it is to hear a frigid speech being pompously declaimed, or second-rate verse spoken with all a bad poet's bombast!
View quotes by Jean De La Bruyere

Evil people you never forget them. And that's the aim of any actress-never to be forgotten.
View quotes by Bette Davis

I've only slept with men I've been married to. How many women can make that claim?
View quotes by Elizabeth Taylor

Aim above morality. Be not simply good, be good for something.
View quotes by Henry David Thoreau

It is a paradoxical but profoundly true and important principle of life that the most likely way to reach a goal is to be aiming not at that goal itself but at some more ambitious goal beyond it.
View quotes by Arnold Toynbee

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
View quotes by Lao Tzu

The aim of all commentary on art now should be to make works of art - and, by analogy, our own experience - more, rather than less, real to us. The function of criticism should be to show how it is what it is, even that it is what it is, rather than to show what it means.
View quotes by Susan Sontag

The aim of flattery is to soothe and encourage us by assuring us of the truth of an opinion we have already formed about ourselves.
View quotes by Dame Edith Sitwell

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
View quotes by Robert Louis Stevenson

Out with stereotypes, feminism proclaims. But stereotypes are the west's stunning sexual personae, the vehicles of art's assault against nature. The moment there is imagination, there is myth.

View quotes by Camille Paglia

When widows exclaim loudly against second marriages, I would always lay a wager than the man, If not the wedding day, is absolutely fixed on.
View quotes by Henry Fielding

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.
View quotes by William Faulkner

It is my aim, and every effort bent, that the sum and history of my life, which in the same sentence is my obit and epitaph too, shall be them both: He made the books and he died.
View quotes by William Faulkner

In Israel, free men and women are every day demonstrating the power of courage and faith. Back in 1948 when Israel was founded, pundits claimed the new country could never survive. Today, no one questions that. Israel is a land of stability and democracy in a region of tryanny and unrest.
View quotes by Ronald Reagan
