„There isn't a text in the Bible better worth keeping always in mind than that one, 'Judge not, that ye be not judged.'“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes
Context: There isn't a text in the Bible better worth keeping always in mind than that one, 'Judge not, that ye be not judged.'.

„Be polite and generous, but don't undervalue yourself.“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes
Context: Be polite and generous, but don't undervalue yourself. You will be useful, at any rate; you may just as well be happy, while you are about it.

„Death only grasps; to live is to pursue, —
Dream on! there 's nothing but illusion true!“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes
Context: Dream on! Though Heaven may woo our open eyes, Through their closed lids we look on fairer skies; Truth is for other worlds, and hope for this; The cheating future lends the present's bliss; Life is a running shade, with fettered hands, That chases phantoms over shifting sands; Death a still spectre on a marble seat, With ever clutching palms and shackled feet; The airy shapes that mock life's slender chain, The flying joys he strives to clasp in vain, Death only grasps; to live is to pursue, — Dream on! there 's nothing but illusion true! "The Old Player" (1861), in Songs in Many Keys (1862).

„It will take you a hundred or two more years to get decently humanized, after so many centuries of de-humanizing celibacy.“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes
Context: You inherit your notions from a set of priests that had no wives and no children, or none to speak of, and so let their humanity die out of them. It didn't seem much to them to condemn a few thousand millions of people to purgatory or worse for a mistake of judgment. They didn't know what it was to have a child look up in their faces and say 'Father!' It will take you a hundred or two more years to get decently humanized, after so many centuries of de-humanizing celibacy.

„We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record may seem superficial, but it is indelible.“

—  Oliver Wendell Holmes
Context: We are all tattooed in our cradles with the beliefs of our tribe; the record may seem superficial, but it is indelible. You cannot educate a man wholly out of the superstitious fears which were early implanted in his imagination; no matter how utterly his reason may reject them, he will still feel as the famous woman did about ghosts, Je n'y crois pas, mais je les crains,—"I don't believe in them, but I am afraid of them, nevertheless".
