The Christmas presents once opened are Not So Much Fun as they were while we were in the process of examining, lifting, shaking, thinking about, and opening them. Three hundred sixty-five days later, we try again and find that the same thing has happened. Each time the goal is reached, it becomes Not So Much Fun, and we're off to reach the next one, then the next one, then the next.
That doesn't mean that the goals we have don't count. They do, mostly because they cause us to go through the process and it's the process that makes us wise, happy, or whatever. If we do things in the wrong sort of way, it makes us miserable, angry, confused, and things like that. The goal has to be right for us, and it has to be beneficial, in order to ensure a beneficial process. But aside from that, it's really the process that's important.
Benjamin Hoff Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Hoff: The Christmas presents once opened are Not So Much Fun as they were while we
Cleverness, as usual, takes all the credit it possibly can. But it's not the clever mind that's responsible when things work out. It's the mind that sees what's in front of it, and follows the nature of things.Benjamin Hoff Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Hoff: Cleverness, as usual, takes all the credit it possibly can. But it's not the clever
I would love to see music reinstated as an essential part of schooling. The culture that it brings; the knowledge that it brings. Just learning how to read music requires metrics, and I think that helps you with mathematics. A lot of scientists and doctors have a musical background - it's very interesting.Benjamin Carson Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Carson: I would love to see music reinstated as an essential part of schooling. The culture
it's worth repeating that for most investors, selecting individual stocks is unnecessary - if not inadvisable. The fact that most professionals do a poor job of stock picking does not mean that most amateurs can do better. The vast majority of people who try to pick stocks learn that they are not as good at it as they thought; the luckiest ones discover this early on, while the less fortunate take years to learn it. A small percentage of investors can excel at picking their own stocks. Everyone else would be better off getting help, ideally through an index fund.Benjamin Graham Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Graham: it's worth repeating that for most investors, selecting individual stocks is unnecessary - if not
There is a structural difference between the way that Europe views Israel, and America views Israel. The European view is informed by the importance of colonialism in Europe's past. So for Europeans we are like Belgiums in the Congo, or the French in Alger, or the British in India. Strange interlopers in somebody else's land. But in fact, we [Israeli] have been here for 4,000 years. This is our ancestral homeland.Benjamin Netanyahu Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Netanyahu: There is a structural difference between the way that Europe views Israel, and America views

That's Hamas. But Israel

Just when had I become so self-absorbed? I was a form of self-preservation, I realized now; I had resolved that ...

I was a form of self-preservation, I realized
Right. So if the eyes are shining, you know you're doing it. If the eyes are not shining, you get to ask a question. And this is the question: who am I being that my players' eyes are not shining? We can do that with our children, too. Who am I being, that my children's eyes are not shining? That's a totally different world.Benjamin Zander Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Zander: Right.

To lose yourself: a voluptuous surrender, lost in your arms, lost to the world, utterly immersed in what is present so that its surroundings fade away. In Benjamin's terms, to be lost is to be fully present, and to be fully present is to be capable of being in uncertainty and mystery.Rebecca Solnit Benjamin's Sayings By Rebecca Solnit: To lose yourself: a voluptuous surrender, lost in your arms, lost to the world, utterly
Since it all appeared so scientific, and we wanted to hear it, Kinsey's pseudo-science became foundational for the sexual revolution, used both in courts and classrooms to push a limitless sexual revolution that began in the 1960s and through which we are still living. This revolution will not be over until it has overthrown all sexual boundaries, which means that it will not be complete until it extinguishes all opposition, the greatest of which is Christianity. Once again, we see atheism at the root of rebellion.Benjamin Wiker Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Wiker: Since it all appeared so scientific, and we wanted to hear it, Kinsey's pseudo-science became
But Mr. Davy would not become a doctor, for a copy of Lavoisier's Elements of Chemistry fell into his hands.

The urge to grow and develop, present in all forms of life, becomes perverted in the Bisy Backson's mind into a constant struggle to change everything (the Bulldozer Backson) and everyone (the Bigoted Backson) else but himself, and interfere with things he has no business interfering with, including practically every form of life on earth.Benjamin Hoff Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Hoff: The urge to grow and develop, present in all forms of life, becomes perverted in

As he pushed the shopping cart down the narrow aisles [of Whole Foods]he noted two distinct types: the wild-haird bohemians who worked there, and the middle-aged yuppies who shopped there. Organic food was healthy, yes? So how to explain the unsightly appearance of the patrons--their sallow complexions, their thin and frizzled hair, their shuffling gaits. Many looked like recent victims of accident or disease, limping and wheezing, loading their carts with every sort of vitamin known to the natural world. In Benjamin's opinion they would do better getting a steak and some frozen peas at the Stop & Shop down the street. How much granola and broccoli could one tolerate? Hitler was a vegetarian, he'd learned on the History Channel, and a compulsive farter.Dan Pope Benjamin's Sayings By Dan Pope: As he pushed the shopping cart down the narrow aisles [of Whole Foods]he noted two

If people were silent, they could hear the noise of their own lives better. If people were silent, it would make what they did say, whenever they chose to say it, more important. If people were silent, they could read one another's signals, the way underwater creatures flash lights at one another, or turn their skin different colors.Ali Benjamin Benjamin's Sayings By Ali Benjamin: If people were silent, they could hear the noise of their own lives better. If

We don't need to shift our responsibilities onto the shoulders of some deified Spiritual Superman, or sit around and wait for Fate to come knocking at the door. We simply need to believe in the power that's within us, and use it. When we do that, and stop imitating others and competing against them, things begin to work for us.Benjamin Hoff Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Hoff: We don't need to shift our responsibilities onto the shoulders of some deified Spiritual Superman,

Now, as far as monitoring is concerned, what my point is, we need to make sure that any place - I don't care whether it's a mosque, a school, a supermarket, a theater, you know it doesn't matter. If there are a lot of people getting there and engaging in radicalizing activities then we need to be suspicious of it.Benjamin Carson Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Carson: Now, as far as monitoring is concerned, what my point is, we need to make
So I think we should stay focused on the real problem in the Middle East. It's not Israel. It's these dictatorships that are developing nuclear weapons with the specific goal of wiping Israel away.Benjamin Netanyahu Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Netanyahu: So I think we should stay focused on the real problem in the Middle East.
I'm confidently of opinion that we are competent to transact the business which had been entrusted to our care; that we are equal' to every exigence which might occur; and therefore, I had not seen the necessity of foreign aid! [responding to Benjamin Franklin's suggestion to start each day of Congressional session with prayer "to the Creator of the universe, and the Governour of all nations, beseeching Him to preside in our council, enlighten our minds with a portion of heavenly wisdom, influence our hearts with a love of truth and justice, and crown our labours with-complete and abundant success"]Alexander Hamilton Benjamin's Sayings By Alexander Hamilton: I'm confidently of opinion that we are competent to transact the business which had been

Come along." He bent and caught her behind the knees, hoisting her into his arms. "Benjamin!" She looped her arms around his neck. "You'll do yourself an injury." She was substantial, but in the best possible, most womanly way. "I will not - because you so religiously forgo your sweets." "Only when anybody is looking." She let him carry her into the bedroom and lay her down on the bed. Someone had turned down the covers, and a half-dozen pillows were piled on a chair near the window. Ben started throwing more pillows on the floor. "What are you about, my lord?" "You can have done with my lording, or I'll start in with my ladying. I'm making room. You disguise it well, but that bed is big enough for the both of us. Where is the dog?" "He sleeps in my office. There's a bed for him there. Perhaps he might share it with you, because I have no interest in sharing mine." "NotGrace Burrowes Benjamin's Sayings By Grace Burrowes: Come along." He bent and caught her behind the knees, hoisting her into his arms.

American culture really has two souls. And it's not a question of whether the culture becomes secularized. The culture never becomes one thing or the other. The culture is always two. The culture is always William Bradford and Jonathan Edwards. The culture is always Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Edison. America was born just in time to have two mentalities. We're like Jacob and Esau struggling in the womb. Secular people want to believe that we are a nation of the Enlightenment, and because of the Founding Fathers and the Constitution that secularism will supersede religion. Religious people want to believe that through the revival religion will supersede secularism. And both are wrong. "What's going to happen," he said, "is that there will continue to be a constant dynamic and tension between the two, running side by side.And they're going to keep on being about that for as long as there's an American identity worth talking about.Bruce Feiler Benjamin's Sayings By Bruce Feiler: American culture really has two souls.

It should be pointed out that certain correlative concepts retain their meaning, and possibly their foremost significance, if they are referred exclusively to man. One might, for example, speak of an unforgettable life or moment even if all men had forgotten it. If the nature of such a life or moment required that it be unforgotten, that predicate would not imply a falsehood but merely a claim not fulfilled by men, and probably also refer to a realm in which it is fulfilled: God's remembrance.Walter Benjamin Benjamin's Sayings By Walter Benjamin: It should be pointed out that certain correlative concepts retain their meaning, and possibly their
"What's that?" the Unbeliever asked.
"Wisdom from the Western Taoist,"I said.

"Oh, yes it is," I said."

Do you know what gardenias smell like?"
"Yes."
"That's what it's like to be glad. You wake searching for the smell of gardenias. Or the smell of oranges. Or the smell of agaves. Or the smell of rosemary. And you think, God, I can smell. And you walk out and you see the light falling on everything - on the delicate leaves of a mesquite or the brilliant white of an oleander in bloom that almost blinds you or the bougainvillea that explodes pink like a firecracker. And you think, God, I can see.
Benjamin Alire Saenz Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Alire Saenz: Do you know what gardenias smell like?" "Yes." "That's what it's like to be glad.

And every time I did spectacularly well in my classes, and I'm here to tell you that I did spectacularly well, I could always see the look of surprise on my professors' faces. You don't think I noticed? What you saw on Dave's face, I saw every damned day of my academic career. So what, Andres? I wanted to do something, to be something - and I did it. I don't think I deserve a medal, and I don't think I'm particularly special. I wanted to do something, and I figured out a way to do it.Benjamin Alire Saenz Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Alire Saenz: And every time I did spectacularly well in my classes, and I'm here to tell
Healthy people have healthy boundaries. Unhealthy people, well, let's not get into that. It's like this: some people have walls which means they let no one in. This equals unhealthy. Some people let everyone in and let themselves be stepped all over. This equals unhealthy.Benjamin Alire Saenz Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Alire Saenz: Healthy people have healthy boundaries. Unhealthy people, well, let's not get into that. It's like
When I was in law school I was taught that the great writers were people like [Oliver Wendell] Holmes Jr. and [Benjamin N.] Cardozo. But you go back and read their prose and it's sort of perfumed and very ornate and show-offy. And they're constantly striving for these abstractions that seem archaic nowadays.Jeffrey Rosen Benjamin's Sayings By Jeffrey Rosen: When I was in law school I was taught that the great writers were people

What kind of dog do you want?" "I don't know, Ari. One that comes from the shelter. You know, one of those dogs that someone's thrown away." "Yeah," I said. "But how will you know which one to pick? There's a lot of dogs at the shelter. And they all want to be saved." "It's because people are so mean. They throw dogs away like they're trash. I hate that.Benjamin Alire Saenz Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Alire Saenz: What kind of dog do you want?" "I don't know, Ari. One that comes from
It is in general and odd thing to reach some measure of fame and see one's name bandied about in the newspapers. It is quite another to see oneself turned into a chess piece in a political match. I should call myself a pawn, but I feel that does some disservice to the the obliqueness of my movements. I was a bishop, perhaps, sliding at odd angles, or a knight, jumping from one spot to another. I did not much like the feel of unseen fingers pinching me as I was moved from this square to that. - Benjamin WeaverDavid Liss Benjamin's Sayings By David Liss: It is in general and odd thing to reach some measure of fame and see

The Palestinian society is split into two - those who are openly calling for Israel's destruction like Hamas, and those who are not calling openly for Israel's destruction but refuse to confront those who do. They're timid, they're afraid to actually stand up to these killers. They're afraid, maybe for their own sake, for their own political hides, sometimes for their own physical safety. And they don't take that necessary plunge.Benjamin Netanyahu Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Netanyahu: The Palestinian society is split into two - those who are openly calling for Israel's
It's peculiar how no-words can be better than words. Silence can say more than noise, in the same way that a person's absence can occupy even more space than their presence did.Ali Benjamin Benjamin's Sayings By Ali Benjamin: It's peculiar how no-words can be better than words. Silence can say more than noise,

I'M CONFUSED, because I don't know why it's so hard to obey a policeman. You will not win!!! And I don't know why some policeman abuse their power.

[Benjamin Peirce's] lectures were not easy to follow. They were never carefully prepared. The work with which he rapidly covered the blackboard was very illegible, marred with frequent erasures, and not infrequent mistakes (he worked too fast for accuracy). He was always ready to digress from the straight path and explore some sidetrack that had suddenly attracted his attention, but which was likely to have led nowhere when the college bell announced the close of the hour and we filed out, leaving him abstractedly staring at his work, still with chalk and eraser in his hands, entirely oblivious of his departing class.William Elwood Byerly Benjamin's Sayings By William Elwood Byerly: [Benjamin Peirce's] lectures were not easy to follow. They were never carefully prepared. The work

There's a huge difference for taking responsibility for one's actions, and taking credit, and in this scenario I think we need to give credit where credit is due.

True that Benjamin used a communist language in the last years of his life, so he looks different to us now. But that's because he died in 1940. Those last years were the ones in which communist language regained authority--seen as necessary to fight fascism (identified as The Enemy). Had Benjamin lived as long as Adorno he would have become as a-social, as disillusioned with left as Adorno did.Susan Sontag Benjamin's Sayings By Susan Sontag: True that Benjamin used a communist language in the last years of his life, so

The truth is, the liberal policies of the elite class have done little to improve the lot of those who depend so much on them. In America's black communities, where the goodies have been flowing for decades, rather than seeing improvements in terms of upward mobility, we are seeing deteriorating family structure, increases in violent crimes, growing poverty, and growing dependence. Even with such a blatant record of failure, there is slavish devotion to the elite class who continue to promise more goodies in exchange for votes.Benjamin Carson Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Carson: The truth is, the liberal policies of the elite class have done little to improve

Because he said it as if he was the first human being who'd ever noticed. Maybe that's why so many people trusted him, because he had something in his voice, because he was well-spoken and had learned to modulate his speech-just so-and somehow, with that calm and controlled voice, he managed to rearrange the chaos of the world in such a way as to make it appear as if there really were a plan.Benjamin Alire Saenz Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Alire Saenz: Because he said it as if he was the first human being who'd ever noticed.
If I was trying to destroy this country, what I would do is find a way to drive wedges between all the people, drive the debt to an unsustainable level, and then step off the stage as a world leader and let our enemies increase while we decreased our capacity as a military person. And that's what [Hillary Clinton] doing.Benjamin Carson Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Carson: If I was trying to destroy this country, what I would do is find a

All the real money in investment will have to be made as most of it has been in the past not out of buying and selling but out of owning and holding securities, receiving interests and dividends therein, and benefiting from their long-term increases in value. Hence stockholder's major energies and wisdom as investors should be directed toward assuring themselves of the best operating results from their corporations. This in turn means assuring themselves of fully honest and competent managements.Benjamin Graham Benjamin's Sayings By Benjamin Graham: All the real money in investment will have to be made as most of it
