have a strong opinion and point-of-view,
and are sure that we know how everything is supposed to be.

merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.

Training - training is everything; training is all there is to a person.
We speak of nature; it is folly; there is no such thing as nature;
what we call by that misleading name is merely heredity and training.
We have no thoughts of our own, no opinions of our own;
they are transmitted to us, trained into us.
All that is original in us, and therefore fairly creditable
or discreditable to us, can be covered up and hidden
by the point of a cambric needle, all the rest being atoms
contributed by, and inherited from, a procession of ancestors
that stretches back a billion years to the Adam-clam
or grasshopper or monkey from whom our race has been
so tediously and ostentatiously and unprofitably developed.
And as for me, all that I think about in this plodding sad pilgrimage,
this pathetic drift between the eternities,
is to look out and humbly live a pure and high and blameless life,
and save that one microscopic atom in me that is truly me:
the rest may land in Sheol and welcome for all I care.
- Mark Twain in A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Love is the ultimate truth at the heart of creation.

- Helen Keller

A system of morality which is based
on relative emotional values
is a mere illusion, a thoroughly vulgar conception
which has nothing sound in it and nothing true.

Cleverness is mere opinion, bewilderment is intuition.

The heresy of one age becomes the orthodoxy of the next.
Mere tolerance has given place to a sentiment of brotherhood
between sincere men of all denominations.

Find ecstasy in life;
the mere sense of living is joy enough.

Taoists understand that both the mind and the body
are mere tools of the Spirit,

As far as we can discern,
the sole purpose of human existence

All compromise is based on give and take,

Any compromise on mere fundamentals is a surrender.

When virtue is lost, benevolence appears,
when benevolence is lost right conduct appears,
when right conduct is lost, expedience appears.

it is the beginning of disorder.

But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy

a mere heart of stone.

Books constitute capital.
A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years.
It is not, then, an article of mere consumption
but fairly of capital, and often in the case of professional men,
setting out in life, it is their only capital.
- Thomas Jefferson

If (s)he's an apple and you're an orange,
