  1. This is a great resource. It would also be very interesting and informative if you considered adding the context that these quotations existed within.

    Three of my favorites are:

    The beauty of a man bears with composure on heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.   ARISTOTLE

    We are more inclined to hate one another for points on which we differ than to love one another for points on which we agree.  CHARLES CALEB COLTON…

    I often wonder and marvel at why it is that Colton’s observation is so often true. People too often (especially in the “social” online world) fail to or outright refuse to attempt to understand where the common ground exists between people or groups. 

    1. Dbrae, thanks immensely for your excellent feedback. You’re absolutely right that adding the context for each of the quotations will give a better understanding. I wanted to, but was constrained with time. Next time, I will do that. My apologies please!

      Thanks again for commenting, hope you visit
