Late Night In Zion

The best friend is the man who, in wishing me well, wishes it for my sake.
– Aristotle (384-322 BC)

We need to find the courage to say no to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
– Barbara De Angelis

If you love someone you say it. You say it right then, out loud, or the moment just passes you by.
– “My Best Friend’s Wedding”

Those who never retract their opinions love themselves more than they love truth.
– Joseph Joubert

Do not hover always on the surface of things, nor take up suddenly with mere appearances; but penetrate into the depth of matters, as far as your time and circumstances allow, especially in those things which relate to your profession.
– Isaac Watts

Only in America do people order a double cheese burger, large fries, and a DIET coke.

The slovenliness of our language makes it easier for us to have foolish thoughts.
– George Orwell

You don’t write because you want to say something; you write because you’ve got something to say.
– F. Scott Fitzgerald

I don’t want people who want to dance. I want people who have to dance.
– George Balanchine

I like living.  I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing.
– Agatha Christie

Regret is an appalling waste of energy; you can’t build on it; it is good only for wallowing.
– Katherine Mansfield

Analogies are like undergraduates. They can’t all be clever.
– Mike Slackernerny

Courage is imperial.  It underlies true achievement. Unless we have moral nerve to live out our convictions, they are of small account.

The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.
