quick quote catch-up

To use bitter words, when kind words are at hand is like picking unripe fruit when the ripe fruit is there.
-Thiruvalluvar, poet (c. 1st century BCE or 6th century CE)



Often the accurate answer to a [word] usage question begins, "It depends." And what it depends on most often is where you are, who you are, who your listeners or readers are, and what your purpose in speaking or writing is.
-Kenneth G. Wilson, usage writer (b. 1923)



Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense.
-Robert A. Heinlein, science-fiction author (1907-1988)



Unless a good deed is voluntary, it has no moral significance.
-Everett Dean Martin, columnist, preacher, and philosopher (1880-1941)



Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd.
-Jalaluddin Rumi, poet and mystic (1207-1273)
