This I hold to be the chief office of history, to rescue virtuous actions from the oblivion to which a want of records would consign them, and that men should feel a dread of being considered infamous in the opinions of posterity, from their depraved expressions and base actions.

This I feared was beyond the strength of any one man: however the groom was a man -
Of Atlantean shoulders, fit to bear
The weight of mightiest monarchies;
and had a back as spacious as Salisbury plain.
This I ever held worse that all certitude, To know not what the worst ahead might be.
This I do, being mad:
Gather baubles about me,
Sit in a circle of toys, and all the time
Death beating the door in.
This I do know beyond any reasonable doubt. Regardless of what you are doing, if you pump long enough, hard enough and enthusiastically enough, sooner or later the effort will bring forth the reward.
This I consider to be a valuable principle in life: Do no thing in excess.
This I conceive to be the chemical function of humor: to change the character of our thought.

This I can report from the front lines: life never calms down long enough for us to wait until tomorrow to start living the lives we deserve.
This I believe: I believe there is no God.

This Hillary Clinton scandal has to do with emails. All I get are emails for Canadian Viagra.
This Halloween, the most popular mask is the Arnold Schwarzenegger mask. And the best part? With a mouth full of candy you will sound just like him.
This Halloween, if you see a blue pumpkin, that means the house is handing out allergy-free treats. That's true. Of course, if you see a blue pumpkin, it could also mean the house is using last year's pumpkin.
This Guy (Messi) is the Best Player in the World, no doubt about that. I think we're always nervous about calling people who are currently playing, who are young at 23, to say he's the Best Player ever. But we shouldn't be. We should admit what we are seeing in front of our eyes. This is a special talent, who may be is the Best Player ever been seen.
This Great God, Like a mammy bending over her baby, Kneeled down in the dust Toiling over a lump of clay Till He shaped it in His own image.
This Grave contains all that was Mortal of a Young English Poet Who on his Death Bed in the Bitterness of his Heart at the Malicious Power of his Enemies Desired these words to be engraved on his Tomb Stone Here lies One Whose Name was writ in Water.
