Henry Ward Beecher

I do not like these cold, precise, perfect people, who, in order not to speak wrong, never speak at all, and in order not to do wrong, never do anything.

The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.

A "No" uttered from deepest conviction is better and greater than a "Yes"merely uttered to please, or what is worse, to avoid trouble.

Nothing astonishes people so much as common sense and plain dealing.

Calamities are of two kinds: misfortune to ourselves, and good fortune to others.

The successful people are the ones who can think up things for the rest of the world to keep busy at.

What we hope ever to do with ease, we must learn first to do with diligence.

J. Ogden Armour

Whoever admits that he is too busy to improve his methods has acknowledged himself to be at the end of his rope. And that is always the saddest predicament which anyone can get into.
