We get to make a living; we give to make a life.
There are men in the world who derive an exaltation from the proximity of disaster and ruin, as other from success.

"Mr. Churchill, you're drunk!" Yes, I am; and you are ugly. But tomorrow, I shall be sober.
When the eagles are silent the parrots begin to jabber.
Eating words has never given me indigestion.
The empires of the future are empires of the mind.
If the Almighty were to rebuild the world and asked me for advice, I would have English Channels round every country. And the atmosphere would be such that anything which attempted to fly would be set on fire.
We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.
We owe something to extravagance, for thrift and adventure seldom go hand in hand.
