Humanity ain't always what's pretty. Some of the worst killers are pretty.
Humanity ain't always what sounds nice and falls smooth on the ear, 'cause any pitchman can charm a snake, but some pitchmen ain't too humane.
A person shows humanity when he's there if you need him, when he takes you in, when he has a genuine kind word, when he makes you feel not alone, when he makes your fight his fight.
That's what humanity is, if you want to know. And if we had a little more of it in this world, maybe we could get ourselves out of the handbasket we're in...or at least stop carrying that handbasket straight to Hell, the way we have been for so long. -anonymous carnival pitchman

Love the quotes!

I like this one, it gave me food for thought:

A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket. ~Charles Peguy

Gosh, I have a whole Word file of favorite quotes. I'll limit myself to posting three:

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control, and at times hard to handle, but if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." Marilyn Monroe

"We don't know much about the human conscience, except that it is soluble in alcohol." Sir John Mortimer

"That would be a good thing for them to cut on my tombstone: Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment." Dorothy Parker

Mira, I love quotes, too. Here's just two I don't think have been posted yet.

Never let the fear of striking out get in your way. Babe Ruth (strike out king/home run king)

Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into flame by an encounter with another human being. Each of us owes the deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this inner light. Albert Schweitzer

Look for the ridiculous in everything and you shall find it. - Jules Renard

We look before and after
And pine for what is not;
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.
- P.B. Shelley

Hi Guys,
"In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity." - Sun Tzu. This quote encapsulates the idea that even in the most challenging situations, there is a chance to find something positive or to create something new. It reminds us to stay resilient and open-minded in the face of adversity.
