I love reading famous quotes. Here are two that could be construed as being relevant to our time and place...

'An election is coming. Universal peace is declared and the foxes have a sincere interest in prolonging the lives of the poultry.' 
      T. S. Eliot 

'No poet or novelist wishes he were the only one who ever lived, but most of them wish they were the only one alive, and quite a number fondly believe their wish has been granted.' 
      W. H. Auden

'Some of the worst things imaginable have been done with the best intentions.' - Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill) Jurassic Park II

My current favourite is:

'One day I would like to show by my work what this nobody, this non-entity, has in his heart' - Vincent Van Gogh

Shy I love Gandhi's quotes, here are two more classics...

'To give pleasure to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer.'

'There is a higher court than courts of justice and that is the court of conscience.
It supersedes all other courts.'
