Hvad de siger ...

The battle isn't always to the strong, as we learned in History. The weak have their weapons too. They come and collapse on you, like defeated nations, and you have to take care of them. "Oh! What shall I do now?" they cry. So you tell them what. (...) Then they go and do it, and whatever happens after that is your responsibility. I've had to make myself a rule: never give advice to anyone.

Experience teaches that men are often so much governed by what they are accustomed to see and practice, that the simplest and most obvious improvements, in the most ordinary occupations, are adopted with hesitation, reluctance, and by slow gradations. Men would resist changes, so long as even a bare support could be ensured by an adherence to ancient courses, and perhaps even longer.

Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804)

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.


Jeg har jo intet andet at elske end fædrelandet. Jeg tænker bestandig derpå, og deres dumheder, som hersker i det og som nok vil sørge for, at det en smuk dag ikke eksisterer mere, de piner mig som uret begået mod mig selv. Dette land er i bunden så godt, så tålmodigt, så bravt - hvorfor har det da altid fundet så få, der elskede det og ikke sit parti, sine interesser, sig selv? Hvorfor har de, som arbejdede, altid ladet sig bruge af dem, der kun talte?

Kærlighed er en hård branche
hold dig væk

Man føler sig ikke ensom, når man ikke savner nogen. Ensomheden opstår, når man har en at savne. Det er derfor, man skal være så varsom med at lukke nogen ind. Det gør så helvedes ondt.

Johannes Møllehave
