But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for He is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil.
[The atheist believes] a world marked by so much injustice, innocent suffering, and cynicism of power cannot be the work of a good God.Benedict XVI
Space has not changed but technology has, in many cases, improved dramatically. A good example is digital technology where today's cell phones are far more powerful than the computers on the Apollo Command Module and Lunar Module that we used to navigate to the moon and operate all the spacecraft control systems.neil armstrong
I want to tell the good people of this state as a judge of the 3rd Judicial Circuit, if I didn’t have what it took to treat a man fair regardless of his color, then I don’t have what it takes to be the governor of your great state.george wallace
The good thing about science is that it's true whether or not you believe in it.neil degrasse tyson
No good water comes from a muddy spring. No sweet fruit comes from a bitter seed.josé rizal
I believe Gandhi is the only person who knew about real democracy — not democracy as the right to go and buy what you want, but democracy as the responsibility to be accountable to everyone around you. Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred. To me, those are the real freedoms on the basis of which good human societies are based.vandana shiva
I am forgetting myself into admiring a mountain which is of no use for sheep. This is wrong. A mountain here is only beautiful if it has good grass on it.1863 Of Mt Cook. A FirstYear in Canterbury Settlement.
I still have a struggle reading (dyslexia, fh) and so I don’t read much... Probably the only reason I’m a painter is because I couldn’t read yet I love to write, but when I write I know what I’m writing, but when I’m reading I can’t see it, because it goes from all sides of the page at once. But that’s very good for printmaking.Robert Rauschenberg
Rainy days should be spent at home with a cup of tea and a good book.bill watterson
To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.Thomas Edison
Content thyself to be obscurely good. When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, The post of honour is a private station.joseph addison
Pilots take no special joy in walking: pilots like flying. Pilots generally take pride in a good landing, not in getting out of the vehicle.neil armstrong
I have ever deemed it more honorable and profitable, too, to set a good example than to follow a bad one.thomas jefferson
A great man quotes bravely, and will not draw on his invention when his memory serves him with a word as good.ralph waldo emerson
Ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life . That is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality , namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil .Albert Schweitzer, in Kulturphilosophie (1923), Vol. 2 : Civilization and Ethics
When I left, Merle was wearing a bungalow apron and rolling pie-crust. She came to the door wiping her hands on the apron and kissed me on the mouth and began to cry and ran back into the house, leaving the doorway empty until her mother came into the space with a broad homely smile on her face to watch me drive away. I had a funny feeling as I saw the house disappear, as though I had written a poem and it was very good and I had lost it and would never remember it again.Raymond Chandler
Rudeness is a sauce to his good wit, Which gives men stomach to digest his words, With better appetite.william shakespeare
Aphorisms, except they should be ridiculous, cannot be made but of the pith and heart of sciences; for discourse of illustration is cut off; recitals of examples are cut off; discourse of connection and order is cut off; descriptions of practice are cut off. So there remaineth nothing to fill the aphorisms but some good quantity of observation; and therefore no man can suffice, nor in reason will attempt, to write aphorisms, but he that is sound and grounded.Francis Bacon (1561–1626), English philosopher, statesman and essayist. The Proficience and Advancement of Learning (1605), Second Book, XI–XX p. 5
Perhaps the most important single characteristic of modern organizational cybernetics is this: That in addition to concern with the deleterious impacts of rigidly-imposed notions of what constitutes the application of good "principles of organization and management" the organization is viewed as a subsystem of a larger system(s), and as comprised itself of functionally interdependent subsystems.Richard F. Ericson (1969) Organizational cybernetics and human values p. 14-15
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.Mother Teresa
