The wise Pharoah Moe

None can be an impartial or wise observer of human life but from the vantage ground of what we should call voluntary poverty.

Henry David Thoreau

None has more frequent conversations with a disagreeable self than the man of pleasure; his enthusiasms are but few and transient; his appetites, like angry creditors, are continually making fruitless demands for what he is unable to pay; and the greater his former pleasures, the more strong his regret, the more impatient his expectations. A life of pleasure is, therefore, the most unpleasing life.

James Goldsmith

None meet life honestly and few heroically.

Clarence Darrow

Nonlethal weapons can provide life-conserving, environmentally friendly, and fiscally-responsible options between talking and shooting.

Not only is life a bitch, it has puppies.

Adrienne E. Gusoff

Not so many years ago there was no simpler or more intelligible notion than that of going on a journey. Travel --movement through space --provided the universal metaphor for change. One of the subtle confusions --perhaps one of the secret terrors --of modern life is that we have lost this refuge. No longer do we move through space as we once did.

Daniel J. Boorstin

Not to attend at the door of the wealthy, and not to use the voice of petition?these constitute the best life of a man.

The Hitopadesa

Nothing could be further from the truth. The value of his life is incalculable. The purpose of setting a bond is to validate the presumption of innocence, while assuring the defendant's presence at trial.” -On Trayvon Martin

Kendall Coffey

Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced -- even a proverb is no proverb to you till your life has illustrated it.

John Keats

Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children than the unlived life of the parent.

Carl Jung

Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate systematically and truly all that comes under thy observation in life.

Marcus Aelius Aurelius

Nothing in life is as good as the marriage of true minds between man and woman. As good? It is life itself.

Pearl S. Buck

Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result.

Winston Churchill

Nothing in life is so exhilarating as to be shot at without result. (Quoting Churchill)

Ronald Reagan

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.

Marie Curie

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

Marie Curie

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.

Marie Curie

Nothing is more beautiful than the love that has weathered the storms of life. The love of the young for the young, that is the beginning of life. But the love of the old for the old, that is the beginning of things longer.

Jerome K. Jerome

Nothing of importance is ever achieved without discipline. I feel myself sometimes not wholly in sympathy with some modern educational theorists, because I think that they underestimate the part that discipline plays. But the discipline you have in your life should be one determined by your own desires and your own needs, not put upon you by society or authority.

Bertrand Russell

Novels are longer than life.

Natalie Clifford Barney

Now the alternative to despair is courage. And human life can be viewed as a continuous struggle between these two options. Courage is the capacity to affirm one's life in spite of the elements which threaten it. The fact that courage usually predominates over despair in itself tells us something important about life. It tells you that the forces that affirm life are stronger than those that negate it.

Paul E. Pfuetze
