“I know [Umbridge] by reputation and I’m sure she’s no Death Eater-” “She’s foul enough to be one…” “Yes, but the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Hai ! Hai ! has not suffered the hawk to grow big.

N.B. — ” Hai,” is an interjection used in frightening off birds of prey. The proverb means, if the hawk had been allowed to eat his fill of fowl and chicken, he would have become stronger and more dangerous: if evil were left unrestrained we should soon be over- powered by it.

Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral.” – Frank Lloyd Wright

“Is it a small thing to quench the flames of hell with the holy tears of pity — to unbind the martyr from the stake — break all the chains — put out the fires of civil war — stay the sword of the fanatic, and tear the bloody hands of the Church from the white throat of Science?
Is it a small thing to make men truly free — to destroy the dogmas of ignorance, prejudice and power — the poisoned fables of superstition, and drive from the beautiful face of the earth the fiend of fear?”

― Robert G. Ingersoll

A sense of humour is the only divine quality of man”

“I think it’s perfectly possible to explain how the universe came about without bringing God into it, but I don’t know everything, and there may well be a God somewhere, hiding away. Actually, if he is keeping out of sight, it’s because he’s ashamed of his followers and all the cruelty and ignorance they’re responsible for promoting in his name. If I were him, I’d want nothing to do with them.”

― Philip Pullman

Once you’ve chosen a man, don’t try to change him’, I wrote with more confidence. ‘It can’t be done. More important-don’t let him try to change you.”

― Diana Gabaldon, Voyager

“With the palms zipping past and the big sun burning down on the road ahead, I had a flash of something I hadn’t felt since my first months in Europe – a mixture of ignorance and a loose, “what the hell” kind of confidence that comes on a man when the wind picks up and he begins to move in a hard straight line toward an unknown horizon.”

― Hunter S. Thompson, The Rum Diary

“Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.” Robert A. Heinlein

“I wash my hands of those who imagine chattering to be knowledge, silence to be ignorance, and affection to be art.”
