  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

‘Tis time, my friend, ‘tis time!
For rest the heart is aching;
Days follow days in flight, and every day is taking
Fragments of being, while together you and I
Make plans to live. Look, all is dust, and we shall die. ~ Aleksandr Pushkin

  • 2 Zarbon 15:08, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Time cools, time clarifies, no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours. ~ Thomas Mann

Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunderstorm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols. ~ Thomas Mann

  • 3 because without the firing of these pistols, ringing of bells, blaring of trumpets, etc. mankind wouldn't distinguish where in time they stand. It's particularly nice how Mann decides to personify "time" as a character in itself. Zarbon 23:24, 29 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC) with a slight lean toward 4.

If you are possessed by an idea, you find it expressed everywhere, you even smell it. ~ Thomas Mann

  • 2 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Who is all-powerful should fear everything. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 4 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

After having won a scepter, few are so generous as to disdain the pleasures of ruling. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 3 because it is difficult to avoid the intrigues of power when being at the height of power. Zarbon 05:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

To die for one’s country is such a worthy fate that all compete for so beautiful a death. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 4 because this quote brilliantly depicts the epitome of that which I stand for. The gallant march to death. The very beauty of death. Yes, the magnificently charming texture of death, best depicted here in the verbalization of the context of this quote. And yes, the death for one's country is so beautiful, darn...beautiful. Zarbon 05:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)

  • 3 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

He who fears not death fears not a threat. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 2 because the acceptance of death is admirable. Zarbon 05:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

As great as kings may be, they are what we are: they can err like other men. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 2 because kings are human, and they too make mistakes. Zarbon 05:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Reason and love are sworn enemies. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 3 and I love this quote. For those who decide with their heart are those who are "love" oriented. I, on the other hand, prefer the "reason" ascribed people. But regardless of any side, the beautiful image is painted well in this quote, as the characterization of "love" and "reason" is witnessed, neither is "right" and neither is "wrong", but both are different. Zarbon 05:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

  • 2 Zarbon 05:55, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form. ~ William Ralph Inge

  • 2 for being outright. Zarbon 06:00, 18 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3. 1. This quote is unsourced. InvisibleSun 21:54, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

  • 2 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

We are most likely to get angry and excited in our opposition to some idea when we ourselves are not quite certain of our own position, and are inwardly tempted to take the other side. ~ Thomas Mann

  • 3 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
  • 1 Zarbon 22:46, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

The manner of giving is worth more than the gift. ~ Pierre Corneille

  • 3 Kalki 22:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 22:49, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

The greater the effort, the greater the glory. ~ Pierre Corneille
