A Quote by Paramahansa Yogananda on god, insincerity, life, opportunity, religion, time, and work

If you are posing as religious and are not living the life as stressed by God, you should wake up. It is wrong to be insincere. The best time to begin a religious life is when you are youthful and well. If you have a short time to live, you must work harder at it. And if you have along time to live, you should not waste that precious opportunity.

Paramahansa Yogananda (1893 - 1952)

A Quote by Heywood Campbell Broun on insincerity and mortality

"Trees" maddens me, because it contains the most insincere line ever written by mortal man. Surely the Kilmer tongue must have been not far from the Kilmer cheek when he wrote, "Poems are made by fools like me.''

Heywood Broun (1888 - 1939)

A Quote by George Orwell on clarity, enemies, insincerity, language, and words

The great enemy of clear language is insincerity. When there is a gap between one's real and one's declared aims, one turns, as it were, instinctively to long words and exhausted idioms, like a cuttlefish squirting out ink.

George Orwell (1903 - 1950)
