Literature is the noblest of all the arts. Music dies on the air, or at best exists only as a memory; oratory ceases with the effort; the painter's colors fade and the canvas rots; the marble is dragged from its pedestal and is broken into fragments. Elbert Green Hubbard, "The Note Book of Elbert Hubbard"
Logical consequences are the scarecrows of fools and the beacons of wise men. Thomas Henry Huxley, "Science and Culture"
Lots of white people think black people are stupid. They are stupid themselves for thinking so, but regulation will not make them smarter. Stephen Carter, "Reflections of an Affirmative Action Baby"
Love all God's creation, the whole and every grain of sand of it. Love every leaf, every ray of God's light. Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love. Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, "The Brothers Karamazov"
Love begins at the point when a woman enters her first word into our poetic memory. Milan Kundera, "The Unbearable Lightness of Being"
Love hinders death. Love is life. All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love. Everything is, everything exists, only because I love. Everything is united by it alone. Love is God, and to die means that I, a particle of love, shall return to the general and eternal source. Lev Tolstoy, "War and Peace"
