Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience.

George Santayana, The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905

Prosperity in the form of wealth works exactly the same as everything else. You will see it coming into your life when you are unattached to needing it.

Wayne Dyer

Publicity is the life of this culture. Without publicity capitalism could not survive and at the same time publicity is its dream.

John Berger

Pursuing and acquiring the best of everything is most likely not capable to make you happy in life. Yes! what will really make you happy is your ability to make the best of everything that you come across.

Emeasoba George

Quantum fiction is any story that witnesses life and the human experience on a subatomic level.

Vanna Bonta

Que sera, sera (whatever will be, will be) i.e. if something is destined to happen, no one can stop it from happening. Yes! it's a matter of time and no matter how unimaginable, unrealizable or unattainable it seems to you or anyone else. For instance, Goodluck Jonathan of Nigeria and Barack Obama of Kenya/U.S.A became presidents against the expectation and imagination of the world. Just because, God is too faithful and well able to begin and actualize whatever he has predestined to do or be. And so, he (God) will surely and eventually bring to pass whatever he has predestined to happen in your life or lifetime. I mean, he will surely make you the person you are destined to be or become. You (can) bet your bottom dollar i.e. it is bound to happpen.

Emeasoba George

Real life is, to most men, a long second-best, a perpetual compromise between the ideal and the possible but the world of pure reason knows no compromise, no practical limitations, no barrier to the creative activity.

Bertrand Russell

Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the real world since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

Giacomo Leopardi

Real, constructive mental power lies in the creative thought that shapes your destiny, and your hour-by-hour mental conduct produces power for change in your life. Develop a train of thought on which to ride. The nobility of your life as well as your happiness depends upon the direction in which that train of thought is going.

Laurence J. Peter

Reality continues to ruin my life.

Bill Watterson, Calvin and Hobbes

Referring to writer and publisher T.R. Threston (Tina Threston): In life there are those who talk, talk, talk and nothing gets done. Then there are the ones that do and look for glory because of what they did. Then there are the true good hearts in the world and Tina is one them! I curse and spit on anyone that ever doubts Tina's words, generosity or intentions! If they do, clearly they do not know her and they do not deserve to know her!

Contessa Bianca Bertolli

Regular and simple life is the life of God; the chaotic and the complex one is the Devil's!

Remember the rights of the savage, as we call him. Remember that the happiness of his humble home, remember that the sanctity of life in the hill villages of Afghanistan, among the winter snows, is as inviolable in the eye of Almighty God, as can be your own.

William Ewart Gladstone

Remember Things in life will not always run smoothly. Sometimes we will be rising toward the heights - then all will seem to reverse itself and start downward. The great fact to remember is that the trend of civilization itself is forever upward, that a line drawn through the middle of the peaks and the valleys of the centuries always has an upward trend.

Endicott Peabody

Remember this practical piece of advice: Never come into the theatre with mud on your feet. Leave your dust and dirt outside. Check your little worries, squabbles, petty difficulties with your outside clothing -- all the things that ruin your life and draw your attention away from your art -- at the door.

Constantin Stanislavski

Remember this, very little is needed to make a happy life.

Marcus Aelius Aurelius
