A Quote by Steven Wright on neighbors, power, and thought

The power in my apartment went out the other night. I had to use the flash on my camera to find my way around. I took twenty seven pictures of my kitchen while I was making a sandwich. The neighbors thought there was lightning in my house.

A Quote by Lucius Annaeus Seneca on god, life, neighbors, secrets, and world

I will govern my life and thoughts as if the whole world were to see the one and to read the other, for what does it signify to make anything a secret to my neighbor, when to God, who is the searcher of our hearts, all our privacies are open?

Seneca (4 BC - 65 AD)

A Quote by Robin Lane Fox on expectation, good, idealism, improvement, neighbors, perfection, and work

Gardeners work with an ever-receding ideal of perfection; no sooner is something growing well than they see how to place it better or give it a better neighbor. To other's eyes, all may look as well as could be expected, but a good gardener's eye sees more to be improved.

A Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson on duty, good, happiness, ideas, neighbors, and people

There is an idea abroad among moral people that they should make their neighbors good. One person I have to make good: Myself. But my duty to my neighbor is much more nearly expressed by saying that I have to make him happy if I may.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 - 1894)

A Quote by Rex C. Reeve, Sr. on brothers, desires, destruction, god, heart, life, love, men, nations, neighbors, and war

If men and nations did reach up to God with all their hearts, war would cease. If love of God were in the heart of man, a man would have no desire to destroy his brother. There would be no dishonesty if the love of God were in the heart. If God came first in his life, a man would love his neighbor as himself, and instead of taking from him, he would feel to give.

A Quote by Raymond B. Fosdick, D.D. on books, conscience, life, neighbors, people, and worth

The only life worth living is the adventurous life. Of such a life the dominant characteristic is that it is unafraid. If is unafraid of what other people think . . . It does not adapt either its pace or its objectives to the pace and objectives of its neighbors. It thinks its own thoughts, it reads its own books, it developed its own hobbies, and it is governed by its own conscience. The herd may graze where it pleases or stampede where it pleases, but he who lives the adventurous life will remain unafraid when he finds himself alone.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on argument, good, life, and neighbors

Nor knowest thou what argument Thy life to thy neighbor's creed has lent. All are needed by each one; Nothing is fair or good alone.
