    “There may be a great fire in our hearts, yet no one ever comes to warm himself at it, and the passers-by see only a wisp of smoke.”
    “I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.”
     

    “For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.”
     

    “Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”
    “I often think that the night is more alive and more richly coloured than the day.’
    <h1>I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle.”</h1>
     

    Vincent Van Gogh

    “From one viewpoint, religion can be seen as sort of a luxury. If you have religion, that’s good, but even without it you can manage and survive – but we can’t survive without human affection. While anger and hatred, like compassion and love, are part of our mind, I still believe the dominant forces are compassion and affection. Therefore, usually I refer to these human qualities as spirituality.”

     

    “In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve their problems. Each one of us has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not sufficient; we must become actively engaged.”

    Dalai Lama

    A member of Parliament to Disraeli: “Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of some unspeakable disease.
    “That depends Sir,” said Disraeli, “whether I embrace your policies or your mistress.”

     

    “He is a self-made man and worships his creator.”  John Bright

     

    “I’ve just learned about his illness. Let’s hope it’s nothing trivial.” Irvin S. Cobb

     

    “An autobiography is an obituary in serial form with the last installment missing.”

    Quentin Crisp
