One must not lose desires. They are mighty stimulants to creativeness, to love, and to long life.

Alexander A. Bogomoletz

There is a certain majesty in simplicity which is far above all the quaintness of wit.

Alexander Pope

Love is but the discovery of ourselves in others, and the delight in the recognition.

Men often oppose a thing merely because they have had no agency in planning it, or because it may have been planned by those whom they dislike.

Alexander Hamilton

Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.

Alexander Graham Bell

Fools admire, but men of sense approve.

The saddest thing that befalls a soul Is when it loses faith in God and woman.

Alexander Smith

But Satan now is wiser than of yore, and tempts by making rich, not making poor.

Alexander Pope

There are pauses amidst study, and even pauses of seeming idleness, in which a process goes on which may be likened to the digestion of food. In those seasons of repose, the powers are gathering their strength for new efforts; as land which lies fallow recovers itself for tillage.

J. W. Alexander

Some people will never learn anything because they understand everything too soon.

Alexander Pope

And all who told it added something new, And all who heard it made enlargements too.

Alexander Pope

Detail makes the difference between boring and terrific writing. ItÂ’s the difference between a pencil sketch and a lush oil painting. As a writer, words are your paint. Use all the colors.

The changes in the human condition are uncertain and frequent. Many, on whom fortune has bestowed her favours, may trace their family to a more unprosperous station; and many who are now in obscurity, may look back upon the affluence and exalted rank of their ancestors.

Alexander Hamilton

Our passions are like convulsion fits, which, though they make us stronger for a time, leave us the weaker ever after.

Alexander Pope

Our envy of others devours us most of all.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

To err is human; to forgive, divine.

Alexander Pope

Man is an animal which, alone among the animals, refuses to be satisfied by the fulfilment of animal desires.

What will a child learn sooner than a song?

Alexander Pope

Own only what you can carry with you; know language, know countries, know people. Let your memory be your travel bag.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.

Alexander Hamilton

Hope springs eternal in the human breast; Man never Is, but always To be blest: The soul, uneasy and confin'd from home, Rests and expatiates in a life to come.

Alexander Pope

Justice is the end of government. It is the end of civil society. It ever has been and ever will be pursued until it be obtained, or until liberty be lost in the pursuit. In a society under the forms of which the stronger faction can readily unite and oppress the weaker, anarchy may as truly be said to reign as in a state of nature, where the weaker individual is not secured against the violence of the stronger; and as, in the latter state, even the individuals are prompted, by the uncertainty of their condition, to submit to a government which may protect the weak as well as themselves; so, in the former state, will the more powerful factions or parties be gradually induced, by a like motive to wish for a government which will protect all parties, the weaker as well as the more powerful.

Alexander Hamilton

Pride grows in the human heart like lard on a pig.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn

A state of war only serves as an excuse for domestic tyranny.

Alexander Solzhenitsyn
