John Sturart Mill, Defence of Hedonism

No birth certificate is issued when friendship is born. There is nothing tangible. There is just a feeling that your life is different and that your capacity to love and care has miraculously been enlarged with out any effort on your part.

But instead of becoming cramped and crowded, the space expands, and you discover rooms you never knew you had until your friend moved in with you.

No evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.

Plato

No greater love hath a man than he lay down his life for his brother. Not for millions, .. not for glory, not for fame. For one person, .. in the dark .. where no one will ever know .. or see.

J. Michael Straczynski, Babylon 5 (Television Series) "Comes the Inquisitor"

No horse gets anywhere until he is harnessed. No stream or gas drives anything until it is confined. No Niagara is ever turned into light and power until it is tunneled. No life ever grows great until it is focused, dedicated, disciplined.

Has ever truly longed for death.

No man learns to know his inmost nature by introspection, for he rates himself sometimes too low, and often too high, by his own measurement. Man knows himself only by comparing himself with other men; it is life that touches his genuine worth.

Goethe

No man loves life like him that's growing old.

Sophocles

No man receives the full culture of a man in whom the sensibility to the beautiful is not cherished; and there is no condition of life from which it should be excluded. Of all luxuries this is the cheapest, and the most at hand, and most important to those conditions where coarse labor tends to give grossness to the mind.

No matter what we have come through, or how many perils we have safely passed, or how many imperfect and jagged - in some places perhaps irreparably - our life has been, we cannot in our heart of hearts imagine how it could have been different. As we look back on it, it slips in behind us in orderly array, and, with all its mistakes, acquires a sort of eternal fitness, and even, at times, of poetic glamour.

Randolph Silliman Bourne

No matter what you have presently. God still have more in stock for you. But you are expected to be diligent and proactive. Besides, he (God) never expects you to quit growing or expanding in life. Do remember, even the scripture says in (Proverbs 4 : 18) it says, the path of the just is like a shining light that shines more and more and never less unto the perfect day. That's what the scripture says. And that infers evidently, you still have more to achieve or acquire as far as you are still breathing in and out.

Emeasoba George

No matter where you go or what you do, you live your entire life within the confines of your head.

Terry Josephson
