1:37a - On Abortion ∼ Hillary Rodham Clinton
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/381090.html

I have met thousands and thousands of pro-choice men and women.  I have never met anyone who is pro-abortion.  Being pro-choice is not being pro-abortion.  Being pro-choice is trusting the individual to make the right decision for herself and her family, and not entrusting that decision to anyone wearing the authority of government in any regard.
                                                                            Hillary Rodham Clinton

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/265126.html

No matter who says what, you should accept it with a smile and do your own work.
                                                                          Mother Teresa

2:15a - On the Dangers of Reading ∼ Mark Twain via Forsling's Quote for the Day
http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/492144.html

Be careful of reading health books. You may die of a misprint.

2:54a - On Accomplishments ∼ Maya Angelo
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/381853.html

You can only become truly accomplished at something you love.  Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing.  And do them so well that people can't take their eyes off you.
                                                                          Maya Angelou

7:45a - On Achievement ∼ J. Harold Wilkins
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/248173.html

The world of achievement has always belonged to the optimist.

7:52a - On Acknowledgment ∼ David Starr Jordan
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/391928.html

The world stands aside to let anyone pass who knows where he is going.

'Tis not what man does which exalts him, but what a man would do!

11:00a - On Adulthood ∼ Sydney J. Harris
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/305400.html

We have not passed that subtle line between childhood and adulthood until we move from the passive voice to the active voice -- that is, until we stop saying "It got lost," and say "I lost it."
                                                                        Sydney J. Harris

11:02a - On Adversity ∼ James Buckham
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/115566.html

Trials, temptations, disappointments -- all these are helps instead of hindrances, if one uses them rightly.  They not only test the fiber of a character, but strengthen it.  Every conquered temptation represents a new fund of moral energy.  Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
                                                                        James Buckham

11:03a - On Adversity ∼ Arthur Golden
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/335292.html

Adversity is like a strong wind.  I don't mean just that it holds us back from places we might otherwise go.  It also tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that afterward we see ourselves as we really are, and not merely as we might like to be.
                                                                          Arthur Golden, from Memories of a Geisha

11:05a - On Advertising ∼ Mark Twain
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/268295.html

Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.

11:08a - On Advice ∼ Erica Jong
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/652325.html

Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

11:10a - On Age -- Unknown
http://www.livejournal.com/users/pandemo/466387.html

Don't let aging get you down; it's too hard to get back up.

11:11a - On Ambitions -- Mark Twain
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/279274.html

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions.  Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
                                                                          Mark Twain

11:12a - On America ∼ Adlai Stevenson
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/304543.html

America is much more than a geographical fact.  It is a political and moral fact – the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality.
                                                                        Adlai Stevenson

11:15a - On Americanism ∼ Theodore Roosevelt
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/178423.html

Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood – the virtues that made America.
                                                                          Theodore Roosevelt, 1917

11:18a - On Anger ∼ Anonymous
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/310902.html

Never lay an angry hand on a kid or an animal, it just ain't helpful.

11:54a - On Anger ∼ Aristotle
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/237213.html

Anyone can become angry—that is easy.  But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way—this is not easy.
                                                                          Aristotle, The Nicomachean Ethics

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/285810.html

I like pigs.  Dogs look up to us.  Cats look down on us.  Pigs treat us as equals.

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/381650.html

If you can't annoy someone, there is little point in writing.

12:40p - On Anxiety ∼ Marshall McLuhan
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/340412.html

Our Age of Anxiety is, in great part, the result of trying to do today's jobs with yesterday's tools.

1:11p - On Appreciation ∼ Julian Simon
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/348790.html

People call me an optimist, but I'm really an appreciator...  When I was six years old and had scarlet fever, the first of the miracle drugs, sulfanilamide, saved my life.  I'm grateful for computers and photocopiers...  I appreciate where we've come from.
                                                                   Julian Simon

2:13p - On the Arabian Mare ∼ Yazid
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/245414.html

She is one of those steeds of race
That stretch themselves fully in their gallop,
Springing and light of foot,
Pressing on in her eagerness:
Her longing is the far extended desert,
                                  Yazid

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.

Aspire, break bounds.  Endeavor to be good, and better still, best.

Unfortunately, Katrina took his advice.  She broke records...  Is that the same thing, but from a different viewpoint?

We are fallible.  We certainly haven't attained perfection.  But we can strive for it, and the virtue is in the striving.

4:45p - On Attitude ∼ William James
http://pandemo.livejournal.com/242253.html

Seek out that particular mental attribute which makes you feel most deeply and vitally alive, along with which comes the inner voice which says, "This is the real me," and when you have found that attitude, follow it.
