  • Perhaps the greatest danger in becoming a leader is that it makes it so easy to be stabbed in the back.


  • A side-effect is an unintended effect caused by something intended to produce a different effect. Happiness can be regarded as a side-effect that results from trying to produce a different result. This explains why those that seek happiness directly rarely find it while those that seek other things so often do.


  • Women tend to focus on what a woman is wearing; men tend to focus on what they arenít.


  • The shelf life of satisfactions it disappointingly short.


  • One of the most, and perhaps the most, amazing things about humans is that they can learn to believe anything, even those things that are directly contradicted by observations; as far as we know, no other creature has acquired this remarkable ability.


  • The rationality of a mob is far less than the sum of its parts.


  • In nature, our deaths are no more than the falling of autumn leaves.


  • One should feel lucky if life is only unfair; for many life is a torture, and for others death is far preferable.


  • It is said that love is blind; if so, then hate should be regarded as blind and deaf as well.


  • It would seem that those that call themselves naturalists regard mankind as somehow not part of nature unless he reverts back to some primitive state that characterized mankindís evolution for hundreds of thousands of years. If this is what natural means to the naturalist, it is unlikely that any can be found even among the naturalists.


  • Judging others instead of understanding them will continue to be more common if only for the reason that judging requires so little thinking while understanding requires so much.


  • The is a vast difference between becoming an adult male and a man.


  • Trust exists as a fragile film that is easily broken by the smallest suspicion.


  • A word to the wise is usually sufficient, but a word to the unwise is almost always deficient.


  • The flattery that we are most susceptible to is our own.


  • Perhaps only in death have each of us reached our own level of competence.


  • Words are the tools of our thoughts that we use to lay a track, one word after another, that leads us to the most exquisite expressions of our existence.


  • It is true that variety is the spice of life, but like adding too much of any spice, you can reach a point where lack of palatability becomes a problem.


  • Today is not only the first day of the rest of our lives, but also the last day of what were our lives.
