Smart Quotes

I have discovered, in 20 years of moving around a ballpark, that the knowledge of the game is usually in inverse proportion to the price of the seats.
Bill Veeck
Who knows why we live, and struggle, and die... Wise men write many books, in words too hard to understand. But this, the purpose of our lives, the end of all our struggle, is beyond all human wisdom.
Alan Stewart Paton
Power operates only destructively, bent always on forcing every manifestation of life into the straitjacket of its laws. Its intellectual form of expression is dead dogma, its physical form brute force. And this unintelligence of its objectives sets its stamp on its supporters also and renders them stupid and brutal, even when they were originally endowed with the best of talents. One who is constantly striving to force everything into a mechanical order at last becomes a machine himself and loses all human feeling.
Rudolph Rocker
Modern Man is the victim of the very instruments he values most. Every gain in power, every mastery of natural forces, every scientific addition to knowledge, has proved potentially dangerous, because it has not been accompanied by equal gains in self-understanding and self-discipline.
Lewis Mumford
Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart. The really great men must, I think, have great sadness on Earth.
Feodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky
High office teaches decision making, not substance. It consumes intellectual capital it does not create it. Most high officials leave office with the perceptions and insights with which they entered they learn how to make decisions but not what decisions to make.
Robert Francis Kennedy
I don't mind what language an opera is sung in so long as it is a language I don't understand.
Sir Edward Appleton
The world cannot continue to wage war like physical giants and to seek peace like intellectual pygmies.
Basil O'Connor
What each must seek in his own life never was on land or sea. It is something that never has been and never could have been experienced by anyone else.
Joseph Campbell
I happen to feel that the degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic.
Lisa Alther
No matter how smart you are, you spend much of your day being an idiot.
Scott Adams
Where all is but dream, reasoning and arguments are of no use, truth and knowledge nothing.
Michel Leiris
Today's family is built like a pyramid with all the intrafamilial rivalries, tensions, jealousies, angers, hatreds, loves and needs focused on the untrained, vulnerable, insecure, young, inexperienced and incompetent parental apex ... about whose incompetence our vaunted educational system does nothing.
Lawrence Kubie
The ability to focus attention on important things is a defining characteristic of intelligence.
Robert J. Shiller
An understanding heart is everything is a teacher, and cannot be esteemed highly enough. One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feeling. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child.
Carl Gustav Jung
Our bombs are smarter than the average high school student. At least they can find Kuwait.
A. Whitney Brown
