The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers and cities; but to know someone who thinks and feels with us, and who, though distant is close to us in spirit,
this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.

The moral duty to be expected in different ages is not a unity of standard, or of acts, but a unity of tendency. At one time the benevolent affections embrace merely the
family, soon the circle expanding includes first a class, then a nation, then a coalition of nations, then all humanity and finally, its influence is felt in the dealings of
man with the animal world.
Source Unknown

The law of sacrifice is uniform throughout the world. To be effective it demands the sacrifice of the bravest and the most spotless.

There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
Winston Churchill

What kind of people do they think we are? Is it possible they do not realize that we shall never cease to persevere against them until they have been taught a lesson which
they and the world will never forget?
Winston Churchill

If the world comes to an end, I want to be in Cincinnati. Everything comes there ten years later.
Mark Twain

It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
Mark Twain

We Americans... bear the ark of liberties of the world.

A dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.

The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.
Oscar Wilde

If there was less sympathy in the world, there would be less trouble in the world.

The world is divided into two classes, those who believe the incredible, and those who do the improbable.
Oscar Wilde

The world has grown suspicious of anything that looks like a happily married life.
Oscar Wilde

There's nothing in the world like the devotion of a married woman. It's a thing no married man knows anything about.
Oscar Wilde

There is nothing in the world like the devotion of a married woman. It is a thing no married man knows anything about.
Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde

When you can whip any man in the world, you never know peace.
Muhammad Ali

I figured that if I said it enough, I would convince the world that I really was the greatest.

At home I am a nice guy: but I don't want the world to know. Humble people, I've found, don't get very far.

The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.
Muhammad Ali

I am the astronaut of boxing. Joe Louis and Dempsey were just jet pilots. I'm in a world of my own.
Muhammad Ali

If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my
miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough.
Audrey Hepburn

Since the world has existed, there has been injustice. But it is one world, the more so as it becomes smaller, more accessible. There is just no question that there is more
obligation that those who have should give to those who have nothing.
Audrey Hepburn

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Nelson Mandela

Bruce Lee

So let's not use a stylus. We're going to use the best pointing device in the world. We're going to use a pointing device that we're all born with - born with ten of them.
We're going to use our fingers. We're going to touch this with our fingers. And we have invented a new technology called multi-touch, which is phenomenal. It works like magic.
Steve Jobs

As individuals, people are inherently good. I have a somewhat more pessimistic view of people in groups. And I remain extremely concerned when I see what's happening in our
country, which is in many ways the luckiest place in the world. We don't seem to be excited about making our country a better place for our kids.
Steve Jobs

I think it's brought the world a lot closer together, and will continue to do that. There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The
most corrosive piece of technology that I've ever seen is called television - but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent.
Steve Jobs

The desktop metaphor was invented because one, you were a stand-alone device, and two, you had to manage your own storage. That's a very big thing in a desktop world. And that
may go away. You may not have to manage your own storage. You may not store much before too long.
Steve Jobs

Our goal is to make the best devices in the world, not to be the biggest.
Steve Jobs

In the 20th century, the United States endured two world wars and other traumatic and expensive military conflicts; the Depression; a dozen or so recessions and financial

Warren Buffett

We've used up a lot of bullets. And we talk about stimulus. But the truth is, we're running a federal deficit that's 9 percent of GDP. That is stimulative as all get out. It's
more stimulative than any policy we've followed since World War II.
Warren Buffett

In the business world, the rearview mirror is always clearer than the windshield.
Warren Buffett

We always live in an uncertain world. What is certain is that the United States will go forward over time.

In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it.
Lao Tzu

The career of a sage is of two kinds: He is either honored by all in the world, Like a flower waving its head, Or else he disappears into the silent forest.
Lao Tzu

The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.
Lao Tzu

make us uncomfortable.

wish to go below now.
Henry David Thoreau

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.

bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.
Ron Paul

How did we win the election in the year 2000? We talked about a humble foreign policy: No nation-building; don't police the world. That's conservative, it's Republican, it's
pro-American - it follows the founding fathers. And, besides, it follows the Constitution.
Ron Paul

The obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic
turmoil to our people.
Ron Paul

If you like small government you need to work hard at having a strong national defense that is not so militant. Personal liberty is the purpose of government, to protect
liberty - not to run your personal life, not to run the economy, and not to pretend that we can tell the world how they ought to live.
Ron Paul

Just think of what Woodrow Wilson stood for: he stood for world government. He wanted an early United Nations, League of Nations. But it was the conservatives, Republicans,
that stood up against him.
Ron Paul

As recent as the year 2000 we won elections by saying we shouldn't be the policemen of the world, and that we should not be nation building. And its time we got those values
back into this country.
Ron Paul

True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.

You can't learn in school what the world is going to do next year.

Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must
learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward.
Henry Ford

You will find men who want to be carried on the shoulders of others, who think that the world owes them a living. They don't seem to see that we must all lift together and
pull together.
Henry Ford

If money is your hope for independence you will never have it. The only real security that a man will have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience, and ability.
Henry Ford

The only real security that a man can have in this world is a reserve of knowledge, experience and ability.
Henry Ford

Oprah Winfrey

It's a funny old world.

If you lead a country like Britain, a strong country, a country which has taken a lead in world affairs in good times and in bad, a country that is always reliable, then you
have to have a touch of iron about you.
Margaret Thatcher

There will be no end to the troubles of states, or of humanity itself, till philosophers become kings in this world, or till those we now call kings and rulers really and

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

The hope of a secure and livable world lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Mahatma Gandhi

ages.

There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.

children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today.
Barack Obama

I know my country has not perfected itself. At times, we've struggled to keep the promise of liberty and equality for all of our people. We've made our share of mistakes, and
there are times when our actions around the world have not lived up to our best intentions.
Barack Obama

This is the moment when we must come together to save this planet. Let us resolve that we will not leave our children a world where the oceans rise and famine spreads and

Barack Obama

In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world.
Barack Obama

The day I'm inaugurated, this country looks at itself differently and the world looks at America differently. If you believe that we've got to heal America and we've got to
repair our standing in the world, then I think my supporters believe that I am a messenger who can deliver that message around the world in a way that no other candidate can
do.
Barack Obama

We didn't become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. We didn't come this far by letting the special interests run wild. We
didn't do it just by gambling and chasing paper profits on Wall Street. We built this country by making things, by producing goods we could sell.
Barack Obama

Of course, there is no question that Libya - and the world - will be better off with Gaddafi out of power. I, along with many other world leaders, have embraced that goal, and
will actively pursue it through non-military means. But broadening our military mission to include regime change would be a mistake.
Barack Obama

For more than four decades, the Libyan people have been ruled by a tyrant - Moammar Gaddafi. He has denied his people freedom, exploited their wealth, murdered opponents at
home and abroad, and terrorized innocent people around the world - including Americans who were killed by Libyan agents.

Thomas Paine

If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships - the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.

The point in history at which we stand is full of promise and danger. The world will either move forward toward unity and widely shared prosperity - or it will move apart.

I'm not the smartest fellow in the world, but I can sure pick smart colleagues.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

A man should not strive to eliminate his complexes but to get into accord with them: they are legitimately what directs his conduct in the world.

Karl Marx

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

to get the work done.

There are four ways, and only four ways, in which we have contact with the world. We are evaluated and classified by these four contacts: what we do, how we look, what we say,
and how we say it.

Albert Pike

This is a fantastic time to be entering the business world, because business is going to change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 50.
Bill Gates

Since when has the world of computer software design been about what people want? This is a simple question of evolution. The day is quickly coming when every knee will bow
down to a silicon fist, and you will all beg your binary gods for mercy.
Bill Gates

I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists - proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no
denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision.
Thomas A. Edison

One might think that the money value of an invention constitutes its reward to the man who loves his work. But... I continue to find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in
the work that precedes what the world calls success.
Thomas A. Edison

I find my greatest pleasure, and so my reward, in the work that precedes what the world calls success.
Thomas A. Edison


Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.
Martin Luther

Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution. The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win. Workingmen of all countries, unite!

Albert Camus

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
Albert Camus

The world is never quiet, even its silence eternally resounds with the same notes, in vibrations which escape our ears. As for those that we perceive, they carry sounds to us,
occasionally a chord, never a melody.
Albert Camus

The evil that is in the world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.

thing in the world for you.
