- Each of us will find that what we made from the ore of our experience is character, and that character, unlike so many other earthly things acquired, is portable.
N. A. Maxwell

From Einstein Feb 3, 2004

- Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

- Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the opposite direction.

- Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.

- I want to know God's thoughts; the rest are details.

From C. S. Lewis Feb 3, 2004

- When humans should have become as perfect in voluntary obedience as the inanimate creation is in its lifeless obedience, then they will put on its glory, or rather that greater glory of which Nature is only the first sketch."
The Weight of Glory

- It still remains true that no justification of virtue will enable a man to be virtuous.
The Abolition of Man

- Surely what a man does when he is taken off his guard is the best evidence for what sort of man he is...
Mere Christianity

- Morality, like numinous awe, is a jump; in it, man goes beyond anything that can be 'given' in the facts of experience.
The Problem of Pain

- The Moral Law tells us the tune we have to play: our instincts are merely the keys...
Mere Christianity

Darkness vs. Light Feb 3, 2004

- Misery may crave company, but darkness detests light.
(N.A. Maxwell)


- Men's and nations' finest hours consist of those moments when extraordinary challenge is met by extraordinary response. Hence, in those darkest hours, we must light our individual candles rather than vying with others to call attention to the enveloping darkness. Our indignation about injustice should lead to illumination, for if it does not, we are only adding to the dispair--and the moment of gravest danger is when there is so little light that darkness seems normal!
(N.A. Maxwell)

Mark Twain on achievement Feb 5, 2004

When we do not know a person--and also when we do--we have to judge his size by the size and nature of his achievements, as compared with the achievements of others in his special line of business--there is no other way.
- Christian Science

Mark Twain on jealousy Feb 5, 2004

...among human beings jealousy ranks distinctly as a weakness; a trademark of small minds; a property of all small minds, yet a property which even the smallest is ashamed of; and when accused of its possession will lyingly deny it and resent the accusation as an insult.
- Letters from the Earth

--Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great.
