A Quote by Richard David Bach on beginning, curiosity, giving, imagination, learning, love, music, thought, time, and women

We're different, we're the same. You thought you'd never find a word to say to a woman who didn't fly airplanes. I couldn't imagine myself spending time with a man who didn't love music. Could it be it's not as important to be alike as it is to be curious? Because we're different, we can have the fun of exchanging worlds, giving our loves and excitements to each other. You can learn music, I can learn flying. And that's only the beginning. I think it would go on for us as long as we live.

Richard Bach (1936 -)

A Quote by Reginald Horace Blyth on country, death, drinking, giving, life, losing, and winning

Thus we see that the all important thing is not killing or giving life, drinking or not drinking, living in the town or the country, being unlucky or lucky, winning or losing. It is how we win, how we lose, how we live or die, finally, how we choose.

Reginald Horace Blyth (1898 - 1964)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on comedy, giving, honesty, jokes, performance, and time

The essence of all jokes, of all comedy, seems to be an honest or well intended halfness; a non performance of that which is pretended to be performed, at the same time that one is giving loud pledges of performance. The balking of the intellect, is comedy and it announces itself in the pleasant spasms we call laugther.

A Quote by Ralph W. Sockman, D.D. on conflict, faith, giving, needs, power, time, and truth

As long as we can keep our international relations in the realm of conference rather than open conflict, we are giving truth more time to vindicate itself. And what we ourselves need is more faith in the power of truth.
