A Quote by unknown on justice and quiet

So I tried to be invisible. It's surprisingly possible. You just sit in the back and keep quiet and let the boys shout out the answers, which they will, even if they're wrong. Boys are less afraid of being wrong.

A Quote by unknown on ideas, judgment, justice, learning, life, listening, losing, people, problems, quiet, and soul

We spent all night learning an important lesson. You can't judge a sewer by its manhole cover. No sir. People can be very different under the surface than they might seem. Quiet, mild- mannered souls might just turn out to be roaring lions of two-fisted cool. And roaring lions of two-fisted cool just might have some crippling lobster problems! Listen man, it's all crazy down there under the surface. A lost wallet could bite you in half. A bar of soap could save your life. Egad, a disgusting mound of muck just might have some very compelling ideas.

A Quote by unknown on awareness, day, dreams, earth, future, gifts, god, happiness, laughter, love, music, opportunity, play, power, quiet, selfishness, soul, success, time, wisdom, work, and youth

Take Time Take time to think- It is the source of all power. Take time to read- It is the fountain of wisdom. Take time to play- It is the source of perpetual youth. Take time to be quiet- It is the opportunity to seek God. Take time to be aware- It is the opportunity to help others. Take time to love and be loved- It is God's greatest gift. Take time to laugh- It is the music of the soul. Take time to be friendly- It is the road to happiness. Take time to dream- It is what the future is made of. Take time to pray- It is the greatest power on earth. Take time to give- It is too short a day to be selfish. Take time to work- It is the price of success. There is a time for everything. . . .

A Quote by Tim Freeman on drugs, innocence, quiet, and silence

When they took the fourth amendment, I was silent because I don't deal drugs. When they took the sixth amendment, I kept quiet because I know I'm innocent. When they took the second amendment, I said nothing because I don't own a gun. Now they've come for the first amendment, and I can't say anything at all.

A Quote by Studs Terkel on anger, babies, delay, efficiency, hope, humanity, humor, losing, motherhood, people, quiet, sense of humor, and time

Once I was at the Atlanta airport. I was taking the train between terminals. Its a smooth, quiet train, and it was jammed when I walked in. But it was absolutely quiet except for a mechanical voice calling out the stops. The doors were about to close, a couple rushes in and the mechanical voice says, Because of late entry, the train will be delayed for 30 seconds. People were staring at the couple, they were angry, and I yelled out, George Orwell, your time has come and gone, things are so efficient we're losing our humanity and our sense of humor. Now there are three miscreants: The crowd is staring at me and at the young couple. Sitting nearby was a baby on a mothers lap. I asked the baby, What do you think about this? She laughs, and I say, A human voice at last! There's still hope!

A Quote by Sri Ramakrishna on faith, peace, and quiet

So long as the bee is outside the petals of the lily, and has not tasted the sweetness of its honey, it hovers around the flower emitting the buzzing sound; but when it is inside the flower, it noiselessly drinks the nectar. So long as a man quarrels and disputes about doctrines and dogmas, he has not tasted the nectar of true faith; when he has tasted it, he becomes quiet and full of peace.

Sri Ramakrishna (1836 - 1886)
