Motivational Historical Quotes

May these quotes about Historical inspire and motivate you.

One cannot have wisdom without perspective,
but once gaining perspective, one attains wisdom.
Wisdom is the ability to view every situation
as each person who is in any way affected
by that situation might view it.
Wisdom benefits from having a knowledge of history,
and therefore a historical perspective,
as well from as having the perspective of imagination -
the realm of the what-might-be
inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

begins with the day of their birth.
- Rush Limbaugh

Liar is a strong word, but we are all liars.
Not in the sense of intentionally speaking untruths,
but in the sense of carrying so much historical
and emotional baggage that none of us is believable.
To lie means to speak an untruth,
and virtually everything that comes out of our mouth
is an untruth - an opinion, an assumption,
a point-of-view based on our past.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

After all, science is essentially international,
and it is only through lack of the historical sense

All men and women are born, live, suffer and die;
what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams,
whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things,
and what we do to make them come about.
We do not choose to be born.
We do not choose our parents.
We do not choose our historical epoch,
the country of our birth,
or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.
We do not, most of us, choose to die;
nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death.
But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.
- Joseph Epstein

The very word "secrecy' is repugnant in a free and open society;

I speak. It's done. My realm is fine.
My wand, my tongue. My sword, my voice.

I say happy, or I say mad.
I say angry, or I say glad.

It's not graffiti after all.

Intent is my weapon - a sword from above.
Cruel hate, fear, and anger transmute into love.
This world's my joy. This mouth's my toy.
Reborn -I'm a brand new girl or boy.
I choose. I speak. My will is done.
Come join. Come play. This can be fun.

for which the sheep thanks the shepherd as a liberator,
while the wolf denounces him for the same act

upon a definition of the word liberty;
and precisely the same difference
prevails today among us human creatures

Is a belief a perception of the five senses,
or is it a perception of emotional feeling?

My thinking is that belief/believing is a very missed used word.
