  • My wisdom collection! Does anyone here have any good quotes I could add to it?

    Whatever is received is received according to the mode of the receiver.

    Principiis obsta - resist the beginnings

    Finem respice - consider the end

    Cum negante principia nequit disputar
    "It is impossible to discuss with anyone who denies principles"

    Saint Thomas Aquinas said once and for all: "Let the knowledgeable man teach. Let the holy man pray. Let the prudent man rule."

    Timeo Danaos et dona ferentes
    I fear the Greeks even when they are bearing gifts.

    Verbum sat sapienti
    A word to the wise is sufficient

    Nil disputandum de gustibus
    No disputing about tastes

    Quod Sum Eris
    What I am, you will be (on a gravestone!)

    Ex nihilo nihil fit
    Nothing comes from nothing (Scholastic Axiom)

    Ab inimice disce
    Learn from your enemy

    Bonum est ex integra causa, malum ex quocumque defectu
    A good thing must be completely so, evil if it has any defect.

    The American inventor Thomas Edison described this colossal scam, which the New World Order is designed to perpetuate, as follows:
    "It is absurd to say our country can issue bonds and cannot issue currency. Both are promises to pay, but one fattens the usurer and the other helps the people."

    In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.

    "The pure and simple truth is rarely pure and never simple."
    Oscar Wilde

    "Speaking the truth in times of universal deceit is a revolutionary act." -George Orwell

    Whom the gods would destroy they first make mad. -Euripedes

  • "In this difficult time, to be victorious, we must be steadfast using all of our strength and capabilities like brave soldiers fully armed in the battlefield ... Whatever happens, behave in such a way that God will be glorified."

    -Saint Andrew Kim
