History proves that all dictatorships, all authoritarian forms of government are transient. Only democratic systems are not transient. Whatever the shortcomings, mankind has not devised anything superior.

Vladimir Putin


I thought this was interesting coming from Putler.

You can map out a light plan or a life plan, but when the action starts, it may not go the way you planned, and you're down
to the reflexes you developed in training. That's where roadwork shows - the training you did in the dark of the mornin' will show when you're under the bright lights.

For every true statement there is an opposite one that is also true; that language and the confines of time lead people to adhere to one fixed belief that does not account for the fullness of the truth.

Nature holds the beautiful for the artist who has the insight to extract it. Thus, beauty lies even in humble, perhaps ugly things, and the ideal, which bypasses or improves on nature, may not be truly beautiful in the end.

There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and truly become philosophers, and political power and philosophy thus come into the same hands.

Plato

Not a favorite but a cautionary trail...

Let us have a dagger between our teeth, a bomb in our hands, and an infinite scorn in our hearts.

While the laughter of joy is in full harmony with our deeper life, the laughter of amusement should be kept apart from it. The danger is too great of thus learning to look at solemn things in a spirit of mockery, and to seek in them opportunities for exercising wit.

For decades I recalled how the middle east countries told their citizens that all their problems were from the fact Israel existed.

Seems we always gotta have a some reason we simply don't have any time to house the homeless, plant trees, build bike lanes.


Hmm, not sure you got the same thing out of that quote, as i did.

Among many other attributions, Goethe also had these...
 

Few people have the imagination for reality.
 
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
 
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
 
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.
 
Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
 
The soul that sees beauty may sometimes walk alone.
 
Love does not dominate; it cultivates.
 
Doubt can only be removed by action.
 
Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.
