„Tell me which of the righteous of that time claimed an altar for himself?“

—  Aurelius Augustinus early Christian theologian and philosopher 354 - 430
Context: All those of you who rejoice in peace, now it is time to judge the truth.... Undoubtedly in days gone by there were holy men as Scripture tells, For God stated that he left behind seven thousand men in safety, And there are many priests and kings who are righteous under the law, There you find so many of the prophets, and many of the people too. Tell me which of the righteous of that time claimed an altar for himself? That wicked nation perpetrated a very large number of crimes, They sacrificed to idols and may prophets were put to death, Yet not a single one of the righteous withdrew from unity. The righteous endured the unrighteous while waiting for the winnower: They all mingled in one temple but were not mingled in their hearts; They said such things against them yet they had a single altar. Early Christian Latin Poets, 2000, Carolinne White, Routledge, London, p. 55. http://books.google.com/books?id=MoI963yzTisC&pg=PA55

„Our Imperial trade is absolutely essential to our prosperity at the present time“

—  Joseph Chamberlain British businessman, politician, and statesman 1836 - 1914
Context: Our Imperial trade is absolutely essential to our prosperity at the present time. If that trade declines, or if it does not increase in proportion to our population and to the loss of trade with foreign countries, then we sink at once into a fifth-rate nation. Our fate will be the fate of the empires and kingdoms of the past. We have reached our highest point... I do not believe in the setting of the British star; but then I do not believe in the folly of the British people. I trust them, I trust the working classes of this country. I have confidence that they who are our masters, electorally speaking, that they will have intelligence to see that they must wake up. They must modify their policy to suit new conditions. Speech in Glasgow (6 October 1903), quoted in The Times (7 October 1903), p. 4.

„Life is made up of constant calls to action, and we seldom have time for more than hastily contrived answers.“

—  Learned Hand American legal scholar, Court of Appeals judge 1872 - 1961
Speech in New York, New York (27 January 1952). The mid-day sun is too much for most eyes; one is dazzled even with its reflection. Be careful that too broad and high an aim does not paralyze your effort and clog your springs of action. The Spirit of Liberty: Papers and Addresses (1952), p. 9.
