  • If someone tells you that they will journey by a route that you know will fail, your silence will be a lie.


  • Half-hearted efforts are about as useful as half of a heart.


  • Those that defy death daily are rare. Those that defy life daily are common.


  • If you "get left holding the bag" you'll have what is needed to collect the future.


  • A muckrake collects a lot of muck for the muckraker.


  • If a window of opportunity is discovered, one still must be sure that it's open before going through.


  • Bravery is never demonstrated by saying that which is known to be believed by others.


  • To strengthen your enemy, harm him lightly. To eliminate your enemy you must either understand or destroy him.


  • Cause others to believe that they are valued, and you will be sought. Cause others to believe that they are of no value and you will be fought. Cause neither belief to occur and you will be naught.


  • Regardless of the price, the most expensive things we ever buy are those that fail. Something that may be twice the price but succeeds may be considered cheap.


  • You not only can't teach old dogs new tricks, you often can't teach them any old tricks either.


  • Nothing should be more suspect than those groups that claim worthy goals.


  • Focusing on the possibility of failure virtually guarantees failure, as the fear that failure arouses will distract destructively from what one would otherwise accomplish.


  • Adding anger to a conversation is like adding a flame to gasoline.


  • In searching for truth, be sure and take along a pocketful of doubts.


  • To knowingly seek to know the unknowable is the pursuit that never ends, and will never quench one's curiosity.


  • Those that believe that they are being held back by events in the past, will be. Those that feel that they are being propelled forward by the possibilities of tomorrow, will be.


  • Conformists as well nonconformists obsess about what others think about him; a well adjusted person isn’t interested.


  • Those that succeed are those that are willing to go the extra mile, but those that excel don’t stop.


  • If one deeply loves their mate, the very best thing that can be done for that person is to be the very best mate that one can be. Everything else is window dressing.


  • An expression of envy is a declaration of a deficiency.


  • The person that refuses to act until the path ahead is perfectly understood only moves forward during delusions.


  • Forethought is just one word that says that we should cross bridges before we come to them.


  • Though we may struggle to show that what is unknowable is known, we should never believe that it actually is known.


  • A man only sees what he wants to see until he wants to find something that his wife has put away.


  • It will forever be a mystery why those that claim to believe in predestination choose to do anything.


  • Of course a person always knows what he is doing; the problem is that he doesn’t usually know all that he is doing and seldom knows all of the results of what he is doing.


  • Most of us believe that we know what’s best for ourselves, but this is another of our many delusions; all we can know is what we want; to know what is best for us is beyond the limits of human understanding, and always will be.


  • Most often when one believes that they’ve fooled another, they’ve only succeeded in fooling themselves.


  • There are those that despise their neighbors yet proclaim their love of humanity, but perhaps they still love humanity only because they haven’t seen it yet.


  • When individuals turn their backs on reality, reality refuses to reciprocate.


  • To exert the maximum control over one’s life, one should assume total responsibility for everything that happens to oneself, even when one’s influence is minimal.


  • One of the reasons that so many marriages fail is because couples look at sexual compatibility as a sufficient cause to marry when it is only at most a necessary cause.


  • You should never permit another, or even a culture, to provide you with the yardstick that you use to measure your worth; it is up to you to hew your own.


  • The word “hobby” is very often just a word to disguise what is really an obsessive-compulsive-disorder.
