A Quote by William B.‘Bill' Watterson II on curiosity, friendship, imagination, interest, justice, leadership, life, logic, nature, personality, personality, philosophy, reality, trouble, wisdom, and world

Calvin is named after John Calvin (1509-1564), a leader of the Reformation. John Calvin was well-known for expressing his opinions in a most lucid, logical and convincing manner. Six-year old Calvin is similarly eloquent in the expression of his opinions and attitudes, though his opinions differ greatly. Although Calvin is a six-year old, his contemplations and observations of the world around him are often extremely insightful. Calvin's curiosity and imagination often get him into trouble. He's not really a brat, just an interesting mixture of immaturity and innate wisdom. Hobbes is named after Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), a philosopher who had a low opinion of human nature. Hobbes, Calvin's tiger friend, is a bit more upbeat but seems to possess an opinion of humans similar to his namesake. It seems that one of the only things Hobbes does which bother Calvin (beside frequent pouncings) is the enjoyment he derives from gloating about being a tiger. Bill Watterson on Hobbes' "split personality": "The so-called gimmick of my strip - the two versions of Hobbes - is sometimes misunderstood. I don't think of Hobbes as a doll that miraculously comes to life when Calvin's around. Neither do I think of Hobbes as the product of Calvin's imagination. The nature of Hobbes's reality doesn't interest me, and each story goes out of its way to avoid resolving the issue. Calvin sees Hobbes one way, and everyone else sees Hobbes another way. I show two versions of reality and each make complete sense to the participant who sees it. I think that's how life works."

Bill Watterson (1958 -)

A Quote by Beverly Weaver on husbands, intelligence, jobs, personality, personality, and questions

My husband gave a battery of intelligence and personality tests to a job applicant. One question was, "If you were given a million dollars, what would be the first thing you would buy?' The young man replied, "A thank-you card."

A Quote by Bertrand Arthur William Russell on cricket, death, personality, personality, and survival

To expect a personality to survive the disintegration of the brain is like expecting a cricket club to survive when all of its members are dead.

A Quote by Barbara Cartland on destruction, idealism, personality, personality, sleep, and women

To sleep around is absolutely wrong for a woman; it's degrading and it completely ruins her personality. Sooner or later it will destroy all that is feminine and beautiful and idealistic in her.

Barbara Cartland (1901 -)

No theory of the universe can be satisfactory which does not adequately account for the phenomena of life, especially in that richest form which finds expression in human personality.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on compassion, god, personality, personality, and power

We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality. We should not make intellect our God. It has great power but very little compassion.

Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself. We continue to shape our personality all our life. To know oneself, one should assert oneself.

A Quote by A. W. Tozer on body, life, mind, personality, personality, prayer, and spirituality

A satisfying prayer life elevates and purifies every act of body and mind and integrates the entire personality into a single spiritual unit. In the long pull we pray only as well as we live.
