  • The whisper of conscience should be more compelling than the shouts of the many.


  • Few things are as unwise as expressing defiance towards those having the power to inflict severe retribution at will.


  • In general, if we want to be understood and accepted, we must keep it short and simple.


  • Many praise the beauty of nature like someone looking at an ice-cream sundae that has to be consumed quickly before it melts.


  • In the U.S., our main instrument of death isn’t the gun; it is the dinnerware.


  • The dreams that we now have need to be enlightened by the autopsies of all those earlier dreams that are now deceased.


  • If we are going to sing our own praises, they sound better when we sing as members of a choir.


  • Bees have no choice, but nothing says that we need to remain drones throughout life.


  • We should not be dragged along by the changing times but rather we should train ourselves to keep up with its pace.


  • A sunny disposition shines brighter than the Sun at noonday.


  • Opportunity never gives its name when entering, but usually leaves its calling card when leaving.


  • Employees are increasingly putting themselves on the auction block to be sold to the highest bidder as though money were the only consideration.


  • In panning for gold, suppose that one made a hundred attempts before finding the first nugget. Does that mean that the first hundred were failures? No, that is just the way life is, we attain success through continued attempting. It would be constructive if we called our nonproductive efforts as numbered attempts instead of using the word “failures”.


  • Those going through life with turned up noses will probably fall over anything that is immediately ahead.


  • It may be that actions speak louder than words, but that doesn’t make the actions more understandable or the words less so.


  • If one tends to take the roads of least resistance, it is near certain that these roads go downhill.


  • Americans seem to be unusually attracted to conspiracy theories, probably because they provide excuses for the individual’s failures and the successes of the assumed conspirators.


  • We each look at life in very much the same way that we look at an ink-blot on a Rorschach test, in that each of us see whatever we’re predisposed to see.


  • None are as dead as those that speak and say nothing, and none are as alive as those that are buried and say everything.


  • The power that is most lacking in the world today, is the power of one over oneself.


  • It is rare to regret our silences, but oh how frequently we regret our words.


  • Why is it that we seek perfection when we find it so intolerable in another?


  • Should you ever lose your temper, don’t try to find it.


  • The best fertilizer for a bountiful tomorrow is the daily application of attention to tomorrow’s needs.


  • The longer we contemplate an act, the greater the likelihood of discovering a reason to not act.


  • One of the saddest things is someone who longs for “the good old days” instead of looking forward to the good new days that are delivered fresh daily.


  • Dying for one’s beliefs is preferable to the many that die for no beliefs at all.
