More From Samuel Butler
- "The dons of Oxford and Cambridge are too busy educating the young men to be able to teach them anything."
- "The worst thing that can happen to a man is to lose his money, the next worst his health, the next worst his reputation."
- "Man is the only animal that can remain on friendly terms with the victims he intends to eat until he eats them."
More In Strength
- "President Obama stands ready to work with everyone, because that’s what the American people expect and deserve – not for the short term political advantages, but the long term health of our country. We don’t spend time trying to figure out what’s in the minds of Republicans, we try to keep our focus on the American people."― Valerie Jarrett
- "Only actions give life strength; only moderation gives it charm."― Jean Paul
- "There are many countries where you can only believe more or you can believe less. But in the United States we have this incredible smorgasbord, and it really interests me why people are drawn to one faith rather than another, especially to a system of belief that to an outsider seems absurd or dangerous."― Lawrence Wright
