A Quote by William G. Simms on duty, exercise, sacrifice, success, and virtue

To be amiable is most certainly a duty but it is not to be exercised at the expense of any virtue. He who seeks to always do the amiable thing can at times be successful only by the sacrifice of his manhood.

William G. Simms (1806 - 1870)

A Quote by William A. Irwin on body, exercise, friendship, learning, life, needs, play, profit, relaxation, time, and value

One of the best lessons that anyone can learn in life is how to use time wisely. Consider what can be done in ten minutes. If you need a little mental relaxation, you can sit down with a friend and play a game of cards. If you need some physical recreation, you can engage in a few exercises that will help tone up your body. Perhaps you have a friend who for weeks or months has been looking for a letter. Then there may be among your acquaintances someone whose friendship you would value highly and whose counsel would be profitable. Learn to use ten minutes intelligently. It will pay you huge dividends.

A Quote by U.S. Supreme Court on books, certainty, exercise, government, internet, liberty, opportunity, speech, and world

The Government first contends that, even though the [Communications Decency Act] effectively censors discourse on many of the Internet's modalities - such as chat groups, newsgroups, and mail exploders - it is nonetheless constitutional because it provides a "reasonable opportunity" for speakers to engage in the restricted speech on the World Wide Web.... The Government's position is equivalent to arguing that a statute could ban leaflets on certain subjects as long as individuals are free to publish books.... One is not to have the exercise of his liberty of expression in appropriate places abridged on the plea that it may be exercised in some other place.

A Quote by Umberto Eco on aim, exercise, inspiration, and reading

Today I realize that many recent exercises in "deconstructive reading" read as if inspired by my parody. This is parody's mission: it must never be afraid of going too far. If its aim is true, it simply heralds what others will later produce, unblushing, with impassive and assertive gravity.

A Quote by Tryon Edwards on exercise, good, and power

To be good, we must do good; and by doing good we take a sure means of being good, as the use and exercise of the muscles increase their power.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on control, discretion, education, exercise, people, remedies, society, and elightenment

I know of no safe repository for the ultimate powers of society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to increase their discretion by education.
