I really know nothing more criminal, more mean, and more ridiculous than lying. It is the production either of malice, cowardice, or vanity; and generally misses of its aim in every one of these views; for lies are always detected, sooner or later.stanhope, philip, 4th earl of chesterfield
Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted.Martin Luther King Jr.

There's nothing you can do to stop it.william least heat-moon

A dim consciousness of infinite mystery and grandeur lies beneath all the commonplace of life. There is an awfulness and a majesty around us, in all our little worldliness.albert pike
