The pain of parting is nothing to the joy of meeting again.charles dickens
We have erased segregation in those areas of national life to which Federal authority clearly extends. So doing in this, my friends, we have neither sought nor claimed partisan credit, and all such actions are nothing more -- nothing less than the rendering of justice. And we have always been aware of this great truth: the final battle against intolerance is to be fought -- not in the chambers of any legislature -- but in the hearts of men.Address at the Hollywood Bowl (19 October 1956).
I once spent an hour and a half trying to explain a situation to "Sepp" Dietrich with the aid of a map. It was quite useless. He understood nothing at all.wilhelm bittrich

If every trace of any single religion were wiped out and nothing were passed on, it would never be created exactly that way again.

If all of science were wiped out, it would still be true and someone would find a way to figure it all out again.penn jillette

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

The Proficience and Advancement of Learning (1605), Second Book, XI–XX p. 5
