Quotable Quotes

Here's a few quotes I thought were worth sharing:

"People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of their character."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

"The enemy is anybody who's going to get you killed, no matter which side he's on."
-Joseph Heller (1923 - 1999)

"Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then--we elected them." - Lily Tomlin (1939 - )

"Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power." - Abraham Lincoln (1809 - 1865)

"The shaft of the arrow had been feathered with one of the eagle's own plumes. We often give our enemies the means of our own destruction." - Aesop (620 BC - 560 BC)

"Charity sees the need not the cause." - German Proverb

Great quotes, I seem to like this on: "Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction."
