  • Those that talk aloud to themselves should first let those within earshot know that they should ignore everything that is to be said.


  • Often someone says, "cheer up, things could have been worse." There would be more logical grounds for cheer if one had said, "things couldn’t get worse."


  • Being abused verbally is painful. Being abused with silence is excruciating.


  • It is better to use crutches than self-pity.


  • One of the most certain ways to lose the esteem of others is to gossip and slander another.


  • Overwhelming problems can often be divided into many small problems and then eliminated singly until all gone.


  • Some things can be improved so well and so often that they will never work again.


  • It is always tasteless to disparage the tastes of others.


  • Planning is only a mind-game unless acted upon.


  • If one were so masochistic as to want to create personal unhappiness for oneself, there probably would be no surer way than to develop unrealistic expectations.


  • To work only for wages is slavery of a different sort.


  • Life should be lived like a snowplow, always pushing aside impediments while constantly moving forward.


  • No matter how hard we may try, we will never turn two half-wits into one whole wit.


  • Live your life in such a way that you can have compassion for those looking down on you.


  • Marrying another only because of their appearance is about as smart as buying a car without looking under the hood to see if it has a working motor.


  • In killing time, we give it motive to reciprocate.


  • The best place to start on the path to success is wherever you are now.


  • It is strange how we don’t feel lost when we are in a group when everyone is lost; however when we aren’t lost but alone, we feel lost only because we are alone.


  • To establish expectations of life and of others is to create an emotional minefield and then to walk through it blindfolded.


  • Unrequited love is common; unrequited hate isn’t.


  • If everyone rises to their own level of incompetence, then when a wise person realizes, on reaching this level, he should ask to be demoted.


  • We only censor that for which we fear.


  • In many ways whatever we hold to be true was arrived at in much the same way that we choose a winner in a swimsuit contest-on the basis of appearance only.


  • How much better the world would be if we never accused and therefore never had anything to forgive.


  • It Is more enriching to look at life as a very long experiment than as a very long script to be followed.


  • It is always a disappointment to find that after giving a gift that the recipient felt so obligated that they reciprocated immediately.


  • Many will assume that they are on their own path when it is the negative image of most other’s; however one’s own path bears no similarity to other’s, but only to the unique way found deep within each of us.


  • Our fears act like an electric fence that confines us with a crowd sharing the same fears, even though we all suspect that the discomfort of the fence will be a small price to pay for the freedom lying just on the other side; yet most will still hesitate throughout life to become free.


  • Trying to “think outside of the box” is like trying to think outside of life, as all of our life is the box. To think otherwise is a delusion of being something other than what we are. All we can do is enlarge the box.


  • Most fear sprouts from within and attaches to that which is without. Because of this, ignoring the “without” destroys that which is growing within.


  • Any age can become a “Dark Age”; all that is required is that most shut their eyes to the rays of enlightenment.


  • Each hatred is a dagger that we first test on ourselves.
