Quotes in 1955
C. S. Lewis
When things go wrong, you'll find they usually go on getting worse for some time; but when things once start to go right they often go on getting better and better.
C. S. Lewis (The Magician's Nephew, 1955)
Make your choice, adventurous Stranger;
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.
C. S. Lewis (The Magician's Nephew, 1955)
The trouble about trying to make yourself stupider than you really are is that you very often succeed.
C. S. Lewis (The Magician's Nephew, 1955)

Carl Jung
The wise man who is not heeded is counted a fool, and the fool who proclaims the general folly first and loudest passes for a prophet and Führer, and sometimes it is luckily the other way round as well, or else mankind would long since have perished of stupidity.
Carl Jung (Mysterium Coniunctionis, 1955)
See all quotes by Carl Jung
Dale Carnegie
The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesus. And I put them in a book. If you don't like their rules whose would you use?
Dale Carnegie (Newsweek, 1955)

Dr. Seuss
In the places I go there are things that I see
That I never could spell if I stopped with the Z.
I'm telling you this 'cause you're one of my friends.
My alphabet starts where your alphabet ends!
Dr. Seuss (On Beyond Zebra!, 1955)
Oh the things you can find, if you don't stay behind!
Dr. Seuss (On Beyond Zebra!, 1955)

J. R. R. Tolkien
Deeds will not be less valiant because they are unpraised.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
Still round the corner there may wait, 
A new road or a secret gate.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till. What weather they shall have is not ours to rule.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
The world is full enough of hurts and mischance without wars to multiply them.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
Fair speech may hide a foul heart.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
There is no real going back. Though I may come to the Shire, it will not seem the same; for I shall not be the same.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
I have no help to send, therefore I must go myself.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)
The world has changed.
I see it in the water. 
I feel it in the Earth. 
I smell it in the air. 
Much that onceja was is lost, 
For none now live who remember it.
J. R. R. Tolkien (The Return of the King, 1955)

James Thurber
With sixty staring me in the face, I have developed inflammation of the sentence structure and definite hardening of the paragraphs.
James Thurber (Quoted in the New York Post, 1955)
The dog has got more fun out of Man than Man has got out of the dog, for the clearly demonstrable reason that Man is the more laughable of the two animals.
James Thurber (Thurber's Dogs, 1955)
The dog has seldom been successful in pulling man up to its level of sagacity, but man has frequently dragged the dog down to his.
James Thurber (Thurber's Dogs, 1955)

You know my friends, there comes a time when people get tired of being trampled by the iron feet of oppression.

Tennessee Williams
Life is important. There's nothing else to hold on onto.
Tennessee Williams (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 1955)
Silence about a thing just magnifies it.
Tennessee Williams (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 1955)
A vacuum is a hell of a lot better than some of the stuff that nature replaces it with.
Tennessee Williams (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 1955)
Time goes by so fast. Nothing can outrun it. Death commences too early - almost before you're half acquainted with life - you meet the other...
Tennessee Williams (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, 1955)

Winston Churchill
The day may dawn when fair play, love for one's fellow men, respect for justice and freedom, will enable tormented generations to march forth triumphant from the hideous epoch in which we have to dwell. Meanwhile, never flinch, never weary, never despair.
Winston Churchill (Speech in the House of Commons, 1955)
