Truth can never be told so as to be understood and not be believed.
The past is but the beginning of a beginning, and all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn.
Peace begins with a smile..
Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence.

It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you mad.
If someone thinks that peace and love are just a cliche that must have been left behind in the 60s, that's a problem. Peace and love are eternal.
The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple.
Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.
