Quotable Quotations

A few of my favorite quotes:

Chesterton, G. K.- “I have little doubt that when St. George had killed the dragon he was heartily afraid of the princess.”

Dawson, Joy- “Intimate friendship with Him totally ruined me for the ordinary.”

Donne, John- “More than kisses, letters mingle souls.”

Edison, Thomas- “There ain’t no rules around here! We’re trying to accomplish something.”

Einstein, Albert-“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the former.”

Eldredge, John- “Life is not a problem to be solved, it is an adventure to be lived.”

Eliot, Charles W.- “Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”

Elliot, Jim- “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.”

Emerson, Ralph Waldo- “I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.”

Fix, Paul- “The only reason some people get lost in thought is because it’s unfamiliar territory.”

Franklin, Benjamin- “Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of.”

—“Remember not only to say the right thing at the right time in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the wrong moment.”

—“Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain, and most fools do.”

Frost, Robert- “In three words, I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life. It goes on.”

Fuller, Buckminster- “Faith is much better than belief. Belief is when someone else does the thinking.”

Johnson, Samuel- “A man ought to read just as his inclination leads him; for what he reads as a task will do him little good.”

Luther, Martin-“Fear the Spirit of God…who is not deceived by stupid speeches.”

MacDonald, George- “The principal part of faith is patience.”

Moody, Dwight L.-“It is a great deal better to live a holy life than to talk about it. Lighthouses do not ring bells and fire cannon to call attention to their sharing-they just shine.”

Westheimer, Frank- “A couple of months in the laboratory can frequently save a couple of hours in the library.”
