Quotations for Today

 

“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters can’t be trusted with important matters.” – Albert Einstein

"There was another life that I might have had, but I am having this one."–  a character in Kazuo Ishiguro's novel *The Unconsoled*

“For the great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived, and dishonest – but the myth – persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic. Too often we hold fast to the clichés of our forbears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” – John F. Kennedy

“I do not want to talk about what you understand about this world. I want to know what you will do about it. I do not want to know what you hope. I want to know what you will work for. I do not want your sympathy for the needs of humanity. I want your muscle.” ~ Robert Fulghum

“Once you know the difference between right and wrong, you have lots fewer decisions to make.” – Joseph Campbell, quoted in the biography A Fire in the Mind – The Life of Joseph Campbell by Stephen and Robin Larsen

“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning of life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re really seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” – Joseph Campbell in The Power of Myth (more JC quotes)

“Hoard each joyous moment that comes to you. No one knows how it will all end.” – Háfiz
