A Quote by Ray Bradbury on business, cynicism, friendship, love, nonsense, and time

If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.

Ray Bradbury (1920 -)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on day, doubt, good, hope, nonsense, and spirit

Finish every day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

The big lie and monotonously repeated nonsense have more emotional appeal in a cold war than logic and reason.
