  • If revenge is sweet, why does it create so much bitterness?


  • All Americans reject tyranny from any source, that is except one, the tyranny that dwells within us, telling us that we canít do what we can do; telling us what we should do even when it is irrational; telling us that we must conform in order to succeed; telling us that our differences should be disguised as similarities, and telling us that our individuality is a vice that should be suppressed.


  • We often find that the loudest heads, like the loudest drums, contain the most air.


  • The injurer seldom remembers; the injured seldom forgets.


  • Some wives in their homes are like queen bees in their hives, in that neither is willing to share their thrones with a king.


  • With many, thinking and speaking are like two ends of a teeter-totter; when one goes up, the other goes down.


  • Each life is a boat without power in a river where we can only steer to avoid shoals and embankments until our river becomes the ocean.


  • The lion and the sheep may lie down together, but only if the lion is willing to wait until hungry again.


  • The most difficult thing for the dying to give up is not their last breath, but their last hope.


  • Those that are older call the wind colder.


  • Time enters a cocoon and emerges as memory; memory enters a cocoon and emerges however we prefer.


  • Deep love is like that star, that rises in the morning that we call the Sun, that causes all others stars to disappear.


  • Many tend to run out of reasons faster than running out of fists.


  • The wealthy worry about losing their assets; the poor worry about losing their asses.


  • A rotting apple is seldom thought of as to what it really is, - the potential mother of a new orchard.


  • Many things that are the tallest are not the highest.


  • A seed must sprout wherever it is planted, just as we did; the main difference between us and a seed is that we can determine where our seeds will be planted.


  • New knives are being sharpened while old knives grow rusty.


  • Every flock contains one black sheep though they all be white.


  • What we regard as original thoughts have the happy consequence of having children that then have children, and so on.


  • Those that hunger listen to their bellies regardless of the wisdom being told to them.


  • The tongues of some are as the fangs of vipers.


  • No matter how cold, no one jumps into a fire for warmth.


  • We should hope to change so much by maturing, that when we look back on our distant pasts, that those memories would seem like the memories of another life.


  • Those that are happy to be who they are, should be thankful for all of those things, both happy and sad, that molded them into being who they are today.


  • When tooting your horn, it will be called noise and invite everyone else to leave your horn alone.


  • The duller the teeth, the louder the bark.


  • We are seldom more vulnerable than when our attention is locked onto the prey


  • Our deep inner needs can only be filled with that that is discovered within, and frustrated by supplying that which is without.


  • When the tongue slips, a truth flees the lips.


  • Those, that are discomforted by their ignorance, will accept any falsehood if presented as truth.


  • Even those with perfect eyesight will never be able to see their futures except second by second.


  • If oneís words are to be valued, they should not be many.


  • Almost all of those, now long forgotten, once believed that they would not be forgotten.


  • Tears are a kind of rain that causes the seeds of hope to sprout.


  • You can put a round peg in a square hole, but you will never make it fit.
