William Norman Ewer Quote
As quoted in: The Week-End Book (1924). Cecil Browne responded in 1924 as follows: But not so odd / As those who choose / A Jewish God / Yet spurn the Jews.
“Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!”
Wake Up and Live! on Survival (1979) - Song Lyrics
“Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.”
Said to his nephew, Willie James, in 1902; quoted in Leon Edel, Henry James: A Life, vol V: The Master 1901-1916 (1972)
“If the request is wrong, God says, No. If the timing is wrong, God says, Slow. If you are wrong, God says, Grow. But if the request is right, the timing is right and you are right, God says, Go!”
