  • Never waste your words on those that have shown that they don’t believe you.


  • The easiest way to prevent a mind from becoming empty is to keep it open to whatever conflicts with what is already believed.


  • One of the least obvious advantages of living in a multicultural society, is that it makes it more difficult to assume that everything we believe is true.

  • Today, every adversity gives birth to a host of those that want to find someone to blame; how blaming anyone benefits anybody will always be one of life’s great mysteries.


  • Saving face is required only if the face is false; if the face is genuine, it will never need saving.


  • What we call progress is less a product of change as it is a product of definition.


  • Let what we discover within ourselves in quiet reflection become what we reveal at other times.


  • Any time we use the word “is” or a derivative word, it should still make sense if replaced by the word “exists”.
