  • One of the strangest things about people is that they spend so munch money for the things that money canít buy.


  • The willingness to die for a cause is only a proof of a personís sincerity.


  • Let the blunders of yesterday serve as tutors for today.


  • If you canít find a way to move forward, itís time to manufacture one.


  • If we believe that achievements speak for themselves, why do so many chose to be their ventriloquists.


  • One of the great tests of life is to adapt oneself to the tasks ahead without adapting oneís conscience to fit the task.


  • The greatest opportunity to improve the world lies just under our nose when our mouth gives encouragement to the next generation.


  • The integrity of an individual is revealed by the willingness to say something that could have produced a much more favorable impression by telling an untruth.


  • The time to ask "Where did I go wrong?" is when you find yourself thinking and behaving like those around you.


  • Often we find ourselves accepting an appealing lie while rejecting a discomforting truth.


  • By taking the law into oneís hands, places the law in its most precarious situation.


  • The world would be greatly benefited if we used our freedom of thought more and our freedom of speech less.


  • The disadvantaged can rise if we provide them a ladder, but they still must do the climbing.


  • If you are to successfully pursue happiness, you need to be sure that you move faster than it does.


  • Appealing to authority in a disagreement is a sign that the path of reason needed a detour.


  • We should only ask of others that they be honest and well-intended, not that they agree with us. From a combination of two that are like minded and that disagree, only good things will issue.


  • Heated arguments never have winners, only truces.


  • Our fantasies are like pajamas, comfortable in bed but unsuited for daily life.


  • When we stretch a truth, it can fill a lie.


  • Misery no longer is satisfied with merely loving company; today misery demands and creates more misery.


  • The singular pursuit of wealth most often leads to the wealthiest impoverishment.


  • More Americans would try to get to know themselves if there were any money in it.


  • In many situations, oneís silence speaks volumes and is more forceful than words.


  • Power is one of the most addictive drugs; the more that is taken, the more that is sought.


  • In a sense, we are all test-tube babies since each child is an experiment with unknown results.


  • Violence is very often the response of those that canít reason and for this reason alone, we should instruct reasoning as soon a possible to our young.


  • Ambition is like a forest fire; the more it consumes, the more it seems to want to consume until there is nothing more to consume.


  • No matter how many times that weíve tried something and failed, we have only discovered what we havenít done, not what we canít do.


  • Although the first and last steps may require no more energy, the first is usually the most difficult and the last the easiest.
