I hope you find great value in these Quotes about Author from my large collection of inspirational quotes and motivational sayings.

If I am happy in spite of my deprivations,
if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith,
so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life.
If, in short, I am an optimist,
my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.

Quotations are slippery things, really.
A brief sentence or phrase, often repeated -

It is a greater joy to see the author's author, than himself.

through all time, or die by suicide.

It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations...
The quotations, when engraved upon the memory, give you good thoughts.
They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more.
- Winston Churchill

Football is like life - it requires perseverance,
self-denial, hard work, sacrifice,
dedication and respect for authority.
- Vince Lombardi

Anyone who conducts an argument by appealing to authority
is not using his intelligence; he is just using his memory.

with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

any attempt to hold on to it.
It comes without seeking and

For those men who, sooner or later, are lucky enough
to break away from the pack, the most intoxicating moment
comes when they cease being bodies in other men's command
and find that they control their own time,
when they learn their own voice and authority.
- Theodore H. White

NO ONE has been granted the authority to tell me
how my life should be lived.
I answer only to myself and to Spirit.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.
- Leonardo da Vinci

Authority has every reason to fear the skeptic,
for authority can rarely survive in the face of doubt.
- Robert Lindner

I do not believe in immortality of the individual,
and I consider ethics to be an exclusively human concern
with no superhuman authority behind it.
- Albert Einstein

The faith that stands on authority is not faith.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge,
never fearing to follow truth and reason
to whatever results they led,

To say that authority, whether secular or religious,
supplies no ground for morality
is not to deny the obvious fact that it supplies a sanction.

The people are hungry:
It is because those in authority
eat up too much in taxes.
- Lao Tzu

Many of us have been conditioned to trust others' opinions
more than our own, and I believe that sort of trust is excessive.
This is especially true with regard to authority figures -
doctors, lawyers, priests. I trust my doctor's intentions toward me,
but I don't blindly follow his suggestions
without checking other sources also.
He was trained to prescribe a pill for everything,
and does it with the best of intentions,
but I often choose to trust God's quiet voice inside me
rather than my doctor's medical advice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

People who work together will win,

Without it, no real success is possible,
no matter whether it is on a section gang,
a football field, in an army, or in an office.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Men kick friendship around like a football,
but it doesn't seem to crack.
Women treat it like glass and it goes to pieces.
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

A great gift requires two people,
the giver and the receiver.
Think of a football pass -
skillfully catching the pass, the gift,
is fully as important, and difficult, as throwing it.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Politics is like football; if you see daylight, go through the hole.
- John F. Kennedy

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

To go against the dominant thinking of your friends,
of most of the people you see every day,
is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform.

People only see what they are prepared to see.

people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget
how you made them feel.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children,
to leave the world a better place,
to know even one life has breathed easier
because you have lived,
this is to have succeeded.

I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

- Mother Teresa

Fear defeats more people than
any other one thing in the world.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go,
things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right,
you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself,
and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
- Marilyn Monroe

Never believe that a few caring people can't change the world.
For, indeed, that's all who ever have.

Imagine all the people living life in peace.
You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one.
I hope someday you'll join us,
and the world will be as one.
- John Lennon

People that seem so glorious are all show;
underneath they are like everyone else.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Some people come into our lives and quickly go.
Some people stay for awhile,
and move our souls to dance.
They awaken us to a new understanding,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.

they sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when darkness sets in their true beauty
is revealed only if there is a light from within.

they have the power to bring out the best and the worst in people.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is a waste of time to be angry about my disability.
One has to get on with life and I haven't done badly.
People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining.
- Stephen Hawking

The most common way people give up their power
is by thinking they don't have any.

Forgive them anyway.

Taking good care of YOU means the people in your life
will receive the best of you rather than what is left of you.
- Lorraine Cohen

Forgiveness of all people and all acts -
is a sure path to happiness.

like the contact of two chemical substances:
if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
