All Quotations / Quotations from Arthur S. Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

I never seek to defeat the man I am fighting, I seek to defeat his confidence. A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory. Two men are equals - true equals - only when they both have equal confidence.

Best Quotations

"Preach the gospel at all times -- If necessary, use words."

Saint Francis of Assisi
"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of the citizens to keep and bear arms. This is not to say that firearms should not be carefully used and that definite safety rules of precaution should not be taught and enforced. But the right of the citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible."

Hubert Humphrey
"Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid."

Heinrich Heine
"What a strange illusion it is to suppose that beauty is goodness."

Leo Tolstoy
"A breeze, a forgotten summer, a smile, all can fit into a storefront window."

Dejan Stojanovic
