Reader, suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
I suppose society is wonderfully delightful. To be in it is merely a bore. But to be out of it is simply a tragedy.
There is in general good reason to suppose that in several respects the gods could all benefit from instruction by us human beings. We humans are - more humane.
Genteel women suppose that those things do not really exist about which it is impossible to talk in polite company.
But suppose God is black? What if we go to Heaven and we, all our lives, have treated the Negro as an inferior, and God is there, and we look up and He is not white? What then is our response?
We dance round in a ring and suppose, but the secret sits in the middle and knows.
I suppose that's one of the ironies of life doing the wrong thing at the right moment.
My main point here is that if you are the child of God and God is a part of you, the in your imagination God suppose to look like you. And when you accept a picture of the deity assigned to you by another people, you become the spiritual prisoners of that other people.
John Henrik Clarke
My manner of thinking, so you say, cannot be approved. Do you suppose I care? A poor fool indeed is he who adopts a manner of thinking for others!
Marquis de Sade
Suppose you could gain everything in the whole world, and lost your soul. Was it worth it?
Heaven and hell suppose two distinct species of men, the good and the bad. But the greatest part of mankind float betwixt vice and virtue.
Call it loyalty, call it what you want, but I suppose I've got people up here who I'm really tight with, we've made a lot of great bonds over the last few years and I've got people in my corner I can trust.

I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas.
I do not suppose I shall be remembered for anything. But I don't think about my work in those terms. It is just as vulgar to work for the sake of posterity as to work for the sake of money.
No man really knows about other human beings. The best he can do is to suppose that they are like himself.

I suppose, in a way, this has become part of my soul. It is a symbol of my life. Whatever I have done that really matters, I've done wearing it. When the time comes, it will be in this that I journey forth. What greater honor could come to an American, and a soldier?

James A. Baldwin

F. Scott Fitzgerald
What's an expert? I read somewhere, that the more a man knows, the more he knows, he doesn't know. So I suppose one definition of an expert would be someone who doesn't admit out loud that he knows enough about a subject to know he doesn't really know how much.
To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea.
