An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





The human spirit is your specifically human dimension and contains abilities other creatures do not have. Every human is spiritual; in fact, spirit is the essence of being human. You have a body that may become ill; you have a psyche that may become disturbed. But the spirit is what you are. It is your healthy core.


Joseph Fabry (1909-1999, Austrian born American professor, lecturer, author)


There are incalculable resources in the human spirit, once it has been set free.


Hubert H. Humphrey (1911-1978, American Vice President)

John F. Kennedy (1917-1963, American President (35th))


The human spirit is so great a thing that no man can express it; could we rightly comprehend the mind of man nothing would be impossible to us upon the earth.


Philippus A. Paracelsus (1493-1541, German physician and chemist)


A human being is happiest and most successful when dedicated to a cause outside his own individual, selfish satisfaction.


Benjamin Spock (1903-1998, American pediatrician)


Never underestimate the potential and power of the human spirit.
