November 10th Birthday Quotes
“In a musty old hall in Detroit, they prayed,
“We are always living in the final days. What have you got? A hundred years or much, much less until the end of your world.”
“Before I was six years old, my grandparents and my mother had taught me that if all the green things that grow were taken from the earth, there could be no life. If all the four-legged creatures were taken from the earth, there could be no life. If all the winged creatures were taken from the earth, there could be no life. If all our relatives who crawl and swim and live within the earth were taken away, there could be no life. But if all the human beings were taken away, life on earth would flourish. That is how insignificant we are.”
“You are not only responsible for what you say, but also for what you do not say.”
“I think for me, any great art is art which communicates human emotion.”
“It’s astonishing how much trouble one can get oneself into if one works at it. And astonishing how much trouble one can get oneself out of, if one simply assumes that everything will, somehow or other, work out for the best.”
