Welcome Quotes

from thousands of famous people

Do Not Think That Your Learning And Genius, Your Wit Or Sprightliness, Are Welcome Everywhere. I Was Once Told That My Company Was Disagreeable Because I Appeared So Uncommonly Happy.

~ Philip Henry Gosse, 1857
My Friends And My Road-fellows, Pity The Nation That Is Full Of Beliefs And Empty Of Religion. Pity The Nation That Wears A Cloth It Does Not Weave, Eats A Bread It Does Not Harvest, And Drinks A Wine That Flows Not From Its Own Winepress. Pity The Nation That Acclaims The Bully As Hero, And That Deems The Glittering Conqueror Bountiful. Pity The Nation That Raises Not Its Voice Save When It Walks In A Funeral, Boasts Not Except Among Its Ruins, And Will Rebel Not Save When Its Neck Is Laid Between The Sword And The Block. Pity The Nation Whose Statesman Is A Fox, Whose Philosopher Is A Juggler, And Whose Art Is The Art Of Patching And Mimicking. Pity The Nation That Welcomes Its New Ruler With Trumpetings, And Farewells Him With Hootings, Only To Welcome Another With Trumpetings Again. Pity The Nation Divided Into Fragments, Each Fragment Deeming Itself A Nation.
~ Kahlil Gibran
God Made Truth With Many Doors To Welcome Every Believer Who Knocks On Them.
~ Kahlil Gibran
All Living Souls Welcome Whatsoever They Are Ready To Cope With All Else They Ignore, Or Pronounce To Be Monstrous And Wrong, Or Deny To Be Possible.
~ George Santayana
Think To Yourself That Every Day Is Your Last The Hour To Which You Do Not Look Forward Will Come As A Welcome Surprise.
~ Horace
We Must Dare To Think Unthinkable Thoughts. We Must Learn To Explore All The Options And Possibilities That Confront Us In A Complex And Rapidly Changing World. We Must Learn To Welcome And Not To Fear The Voices Of Dissent. We Must Dare To Think About Unthinkable Things Because When Things Become Unthinkable, Thinking Stops And Action Becomes Mindless.
~ James W. Fulbright, March 27, 1964
