Words to Live By

"Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."
William Shakespeare

"It is by losing ourselves in inquiry, creation and craft that we become something."
Paul Goodman

"According to Aristotle happiness is not a feeling or sensation but instead is the quality of a whole life. The emphasis is on "whole," a life from beginning to end. Especially the end. The last part, the part you're now approaching, was for Aristotle the most important for happiness. It makes sense, doesn't it?"
Charles Van Doren on Aristotle's Ethics, a selection of passages that describe the idea of happiness.

"I always question everything I read, but for most of us the minute we see something in print we throw it at others as proof positive that the thing exists. We must question who wrote what, how they researched, what their sources were. Me included. It doesn't matter what the truth is; let our motto be to go find it, and print it without bias, and with courage."
Ali Yildirim, on his campaign for truth and the Iraq War (read more quotes)
