Quote of the Day

Quote of the Day

“Live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about his religion.
Respect others in their views and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long and of service to your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend,
or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light,
for your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.
When your time comes to die,
be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death,
so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time
to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.”
— Tecumseh

Quote of the Day

“Truth is like the sun.
You can shut it out for a time,
but it ain’t goin’ away.”
— Elvis Presley

Quote of the Day

“By a very conservative estimate, a hundred million people have died at the hands of their own governments in this century.
Given that record, how bad could anarchy be?”
— Joseph Sobran

Quote of the Day

Arrogance is a killer, and wearing ambition on one’s sleeve can have the same effect.
There is a fine line between arrogance and self-confidence.
Legitimate self-confidence is a winner.
The true test of self-confidence is the courage to be open — to welcome change and new ideas regardless of their source.
Self-confident people aren’t afraid to have their views challenged.
They relish the intellectual combat that enriches ideas.

–Jack Welch

Quote of the Day

The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary;
men alone are quite capable of every wickedness
—Joseph Conrad, Under Western Eyes
