  •  “The time to relax is when you don't have time for it.”

  • “Our dilemma is that we hate change and love it at the same time; what we really want is for things to remain the same but get better.”

  •  “The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.”

  •  “When I hear somebody say 'Life is hard', I am always tempted to ask 'Compared to what?'”

  •  “Middle Age is that perplexing time of life when we hear two voices calling us, one saying, 'Why not?' and the other, 'Why bother?'”

  •  “An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.”

 “Knowledge fills a large brain; it merely inflates a small one.”

Sydney J. Harris

  •  “The primary purpose of a liberal education is to make one's mind a pleasant place in which to spend one's leisure.”

  •  “Sometimes the best, and only effective, way to kill an idea is to put it into practice.”

  •  “The art of living consists in knowing which impulses to obey and which must be made to obey.”

  •  “The art of living consists in knowing which impulses to obey and which must be made to obey.”

  •  “The beauty of 'spacing' children many years apart lies in the fact that parents have time to learn the mistakes that were made with the older ones - which permits them to make exactly the opposite mistakes with the younger ones.”

  •  “It's surprising how many persons go through life without ever recognizing that their feelings toward other people are largely determined by their feelings toward themselves, and if you're not comfortable within yourself, you can't be comfortable with others.”

  •  “When we have 'second thoughts' about something, our first thoughts don't seem like thoughts at all - just feelings.”

  •  “Democracy is the only system that persists in asking the powers that be whether they are the powers that ought to be.”

  •  “Nobody can be so amusingly arrogant as a young man who has just discovered an old idea and thinks it is his own.”

  •  “There's no point in burying a hatchet if you're going to put up a marker on the site.”

  •  “The most important thing in an argument, next to being right, is to leave an escape hatch for your opponent, so that he can gracefully swing over to your side without too much apparent loss of face.”
