I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time. ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

2004
Wave after wave, each mightier than the last,
Till last, a ninth one, gathering half the deep
And full of voices, slowly rose and plunged
Roaring, and all the wave was in a flame:
And down the wave and in the flame was borne
A naked babe...

~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson in Idylls of the King ~

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,

  • 2 Lyle 18:35, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

You study, you learn, but you guard the original naiveté. It has to be within you, as desire for drink is within the drunkard or love is within the lover. ~ Henri Matisse (born December 31, 1869)

  • 2 Lyle 18:35, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

At each stage I reach a balance, a conclusion. At the next sitting, if I find that there is a weakness in the whole, I make my way back into the picture by means of the weakness — I re-enter through the breach — and I reconceive the whole. Thus everything becomes fluid again. ~ Henri Matisse (born December 31, 1869)

  • 3 Kalki 23:42, 30 December 2006 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

War is very uncertain in its results, and often when affairs look most desperate they suddenly assume a more hopeful state. ~ George Meade

The only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it. ~ George Marshall

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:25, 30 December 2008 (UTC)

Military power wins battles, but spiritual power wins wars. ~ George Marshall

  • 3 Zarbon 05:59, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 I'm having a hard time thinking of historic examples where this quote would apply. More like spiritual power starts wars. Lyle 17:15, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
I must disagree strongly: It is not any form of true spiritual power or will that starts wars, but an extreme lack of it, and of any confidence in it or in the ideals of Liberty and Justice, and rather a reliance and confidence in material and military power and strategies, which often have been fostered in ways that create extreme indifference and even hostility to these ideals. Often, but not always, amidst the long trials of war, spiritual strength comes to the fore, despite many defeats, setbacks, and retreats, amidst many battles against those who might be well armed and skilled in the use of military or political weaponry and tactics. ~ Kalki 17:29, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 20:30, 11 December 2008 (UTC) with a very strong lean toward 4.

Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall. ~ Larry Wilde.
