Abroad by Mark Twain What is it that confers the noblest delight? What is that which swells a man's
breast with pride above that which any other experience can bring to him?
Discovery! To know that you are walking where none others have walked; that you
are beholding what human eye has not seen before; that you are breathing a
virgin atmosphere. To give birth to an idea -- to discover a great thought.
This Entire literary work is a tactful humorous epigram on
mans’ reality from the beginning of time to even Present folly, As if Cavemen were
more Civilized or could do so much more with advancement in civilization
Out Awareness Name: The Perfect Weapon…Pg. 17
Temptation Epigram Speech
To be or not to be is the question:…Whether ‘tis nobler
in mind to suffer…The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,…or to take arms
against a sea of troubles, And by opposing in them? To die: To sleep; no more;
and by a sleep to say we end …The heart-ache and the natural thousand shocks …That
flesh is heir to, ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to wish’d. To die, To sleep: …To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there’s
the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come…
When we have shuffled off
this mortal coil.. ~ William Shakespeare - from Hamlet 3/1, written between 1599 and 1601. Hamlet’s famous ” To be or not to be ” speech.~Always nice to re-visit, especially when
you least expect it.

6.) Great Writing Quotes

-Fred Allen, Co Evolution Quarterly, winter, 1977
2.)Cherish your visions;
cherish your ideals: cherish the music that stirs in your heart, the beauty
that forms in your mind,, the loveliness that drapes your purest thoughts, for
out of them will grow delightful conditions, all heavenly environment; of these
if you but remain true to them, your world will at least be built. –James Allen
3.)There is one kind of laugh
that I always did recommend; it looks out of the eye first with a merry
twinkle, then it creeps down on its hands and knees and plays around the mouth
like a pretty moth around the blaze of a candle, then it steals over into the
dimples of the cheeks and rides around in those whirlpools for a while, then it
lights up the whole face like the mellow bloom on a damask rose, then it swims
up on the air, with a peal as clear and as happy as a dinner-bell, then it goes
back again on gold tiptoes like an angel out for an airing, and it lies down on
its little bed of violets in the heart where it came from. -Josh Billings
4.)The true beloveds of this
world are in their lover’s eyes lilacs opening, ship lights, school bells, a
landscape, remembered conversations, friends, a child’s Sunday, lost voices,
one’s favorite suit, autumn and all seasons, memory, yes, it being the earth
water of existence, memory. -Truman Capote
5.) Most marvelous and
enviable is the fecundity of fancy which can adorn whatever it touches, which
can invest naked fact and dry reasoning with unlooked for beauty, make flowers
bloom even on the brow of the precipice. -Margaret Fuller
6.) To believe in a child is
to believe in the future. Through their aspiration they will save the world.
With their aspirations they will save the world. With their combined knowledge
the turbulent seas of hate and injustice will be calmed. They will champion the
causes of life’s underdogs, forging a society without class discrimination.
They will supply humanity with music and beauty as it has never known. They
will endure. Towards these ends I pledge my life’s work. I will supply the
children with tools and knowledge to overcome the obstacles. I will pass on the
wisdom of my years and temper it with patience. I shall impact in each child
the desire to fulfill his or her dream. I shall teach. -Henry James
7.)He has achieved success who
has lived well, laughed often, and loved much; who has enjoyed the trust of
pure women, the respect of intelligent men, and the love of small children; who
has filled his niche, and accomplished his task; who has left the world better
than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or rescued
soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty, or failed to express
it; who has always looked for the best in others, and given them the best he
had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory a benediction. -Bessoe Anderson Stanley
8.) We grow great by dreams.
All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or
in the red fire of a long winter’s evening. Some of us let these great dreams
die, but others nourish and protect
them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and
light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will
come true. -Woodrow Wilson
9.) There are some people who read
too much: The bibliobibuli. I know some who are constantly drunk on books, as
others are drunk on whiskey or religion. They wander through this most
diverting and stimulating of worlds in a haze, seeing nothing and hearing
nothing. -H. L. Mencken
10.) When power leads man
toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the
areas of man’s concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his
existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses, for art establishes the basic
human truths which must serve as the touchstone of our judgment. -John F. Kennedy
