Readers send their Best Quotes

by Administrator7. November 2012 21:37

A while ago my blog concerned itself with great quotations. Here are some sent in by readers:

Dear fellow lovers of great quotes and pronouncements. We filled two blogs with pithy mental bursts of interesting people. Yet so great is the liking for a truthful phrase well-turned that in my perusal of reader notes I found a new plethora of great sayings. Some of the quotes made me laugh, some made me think, and in the process of checking correct spelling I came to learn more history of famous minds. Thank you readers for enriching my life! We had comments and quotes from Poland, France, Germany, India and some unidentified places. However, if people comment in their native languages, unless it is German, Russian or Spanish, I eradicate the message because I have no clue what to do with their quotes.

Having said that, we shall proceed with more mind-enriching offerings.

“Meetings are indispensable when you don’t want to do anything.” by John Kenneth Galbraith, offered by Pecinansky984

“Time discovers truth.” By Lucius Annanaeus Seneca, sent by Colarossi 1928

“Washington is the only place where sound travels faster than light.” by CVR Thompson, sent by Kammer 1351

“The capacity to care is what gives life its most deepest significance.” by Pablo Casals, sent by Lawver 202

“Solitude is fine, but you need someone to tell you that solitude is fine.” by Honore` de Balzac, sent by Winterholler 638

“Talent does what it can, genius does what it must.” by Edward George Bulwer-Litton, sent by Tridel 1934

Here is a German quote, which I will translate after quoting. “Wer nur um Gewinn kaempft, erntet nichts wofuer es sich lohnt zu leben.” No author, sent by Fatora 81.  “He, who fights only for material gain, reaps nothing that makes life worth living.”

“Never take the advice of someone who has not had your kind of trouble.” by Sydney J. Harris, sent by Hrbacek1690

“Experience—a comb life gives you after you lose your hair.” by Judith Stern, sent by Bulland 1094. This one cracked me up. Guess I belong to the gang that is losing hair.

“That is true wisdom, to know when to alter one’s mind when occasion demands it.” by Terrence, sent by Shiminsky 882

“I have to be myself, I can’t be no one else…” by Noah Gallagher, sent by Kapsalis1430

“No man is wise enough by himself.” By Titus Maccius Plautus, sent by Durick 1785   While we are speaking of Plautus, we might as well gather knowledge about him: Plautus was an esteemed dramatist (circa 254 – 184 B.C.). He is still known among lovers of comedic writing to this day. Compare him to Lukian, or Lucian (circa 125 – 180 A. D.), who claimed to be a Syrian, a satirist, whose work I adore.

“If you have both feet planted on level ground, then the university has failed you.” by Robert F. Groheen, sent by Hillegas 485

“It is a very hard undertaking to seek to please everybody.” by Publilius Syrus sent by Sago 1105  Publilius, for your edification, was a writer of maxims in the first century B. C. A Syrian brought as a slave to Italy he amazed with his wit and talent. For that he was freed by his master and educated. Which goes to show a good mind is appreciated, unless it shows up a superior’s short-comings.

 “Never contend with a man who has nothing to lose.” Baltasar Gracian y Morales, sent by Waide 428   Morales was a Spanish Jesuit (1601- 1658) and a writer of prose. He also was the author of a plethora of great quotes.

 And with that, I thank all of you for sending quotes and enriching our lives with these thoughtful morsels of wisdom and experience. May we all take away in our minds the essence of their offerings.

Of one thing you can be certain, whoever Obama appoints will be bad for the USA, bad for the West, bad for the world. Between Susan Rice and Kerry, Rice would be a lesser evil as Secretary of State. On the other hand, that would mean Kerry would land up in Defence. Both of them would be appointed. How awful would that be!

About the author

Born in Germany in 1941, Sigrid Weidenweber remembers the horrific aftermath of Fascism. At the end of the war, she found herself living under Communism. Both of these totalitarian regimes left indelible marks on her psyche and a healthy distrust of government’s, usurping too many powers to control people, supposedly for their own good. After the Berlin Wall was built, she managed to escape the repressive environment with the help of friends and a French passport. To this day she does not speak French.

She holds degrees in medical technology, psychology and an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Concordia University of Portland, Oregon for her trilogy "The Volga Flows Forever."

 Her first published book, “Escaping the Twilight,” deals with aspects of medical anthropology in an Islamic culture. In her trilogy the Volga Flows Forever, she brings to life Catherine the Great in her multiple roles as monarch, woman--lover, mother, grandmother and head of the general staff of the army, in volume one. The following two historical volumes deal with the Volga Germans brought to Russia by Catherine's edict.  The last book, “From Gulag to Freedom,” describes the lives of Russian-Germans and minority populations under Stalin’s regime and the systematic eradication of these minorities. The last part of the book is a comparison of communism, Russia, versus free enterprise in the USA. The heroin of the book settles in Fresno, California.

Three years ago she moved to Santa Rosa Valley, California from Portland Oregon. She has passionately embraced California together with her family that also resides here.

Always active, lecturing on historical and anthropological subjects and being a part of arts and culture in Portland, Oregon, she bestrode the same path when she came to California and is active on the Northwest Symphony League Board.

At present she is writing a memoir of her early childhood during WW I and later young adulthood under Communism.
