A Quote by Art Buchwald on acceptance, driving, facts, people, and wives

People are broad-minded. They'll accept the fact that a person can be an alcoholic, a dope fiend, a wife beater, and even a newspaperman, but if a man does not drive, there is something wrong with him.

Art Buchwald (1925 -)

A Quote by Antonin Artaud on facts, life, and understanding

When we speak the word "life," it must be understood we are not referring to life as we know it from its surface of fact, but to that fragile, fluctuating center which forms never reach.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on borrowing, desires, facts, grace, harmony, intention, language, life, peace, purity, saints, spirituality, and time

But I want first of all - in fact as an end to these other desires - to be at peace with myself. I want a singleness of eye, a purity of intention, a central core to my life that will enable me to carry out these obligations and activities as well as I can. I want in fact-to borrow from the language of the saints - to live 'in grace' as much of the time as possible. I am not using this term in a strictly theological sense. By grace I mean an inner harmony, essentially spiritual, which can be translated into outward harmony.

A Quote by Anne Morrow Lindbergh on acceptance, existence, facts, freedom, imagination, learning, and life

Total freedom is never what one imagines and, in fact, hardly exists. It comes as a shock in life to learn that we usually only exchange one set of restrictions for another. The second set, however, is self-chosen, and therefore easier to accept.

A Quote by Andrew Linzey on animals, facts, life, opportunity, and people

It is an unfortunate fact that those people who are most eloquent in their demand for the conservation of animals are often those most eager to violate animal life at the first opportunity.

A Quote by Anatol Rapoport on awareness, chess, facts, interest, life, play, and soul

One cannot play chess if one becomes aware of the pieces as living souls and of the fact that the Whites and the Blacks have more in common with each other than with the players. Suddenly one loses all interest in who will be champion.

A Quote by Ambrose Gwinett Bierce on facts, familiarity, giving, god, immortality, and sacred

SCARABAEUS, n. The sacred beetle of the ancient Egyptians, allied to our familiar "tumble-bug." It was supposed to symbolize immortality, the fact that God knew why giving it its peculiar sanctity.
