Words are alive; cut them and they bleed.

Quotations are useful in periods of ignorance or obscurantist beliefs.
Be careful -- with quotations, you can damn anything.
A facility for quotation covers the absence of original thought.
The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation.
The only way we'll get freedom for ourselves is to identify ourselves with every oppressed people in the world. We are blood brothers to the people of Brazil, Venezuela, Haiti, Cuba -- yes Cuba too.
That one I love who is incapable of ill will, and returns love for hatred. Living beyond the reach of I and mind, and of pain and pleasure, full of mercy, contented, self-controlled, with all his heart and all his mind given to Me -- with such a one I am in love.
Beyond the reach of common man; is that one elusive thing...Trust!
Nothing is worth more than this day. You cannot relive yesterday. Tomorrow is still beyond your reach

No monster vibration, no snake universe hallucinations. Many tiny jeweled violet flowers along the path of a living brook that looked like Blake's illustration for a canal in grassy Eden: huge Pacific watery shore, Orlovsky dancing naked like Shiva long-haired before giant green waves, titanic cliffs that Wordsworth mentioned in his own Sublime, great yellow sun veiled with mist hanging over the planet's oceanic horizon. No harm.
Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says: I need you because I love you.
Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrations and revolutionists.
