  • The dreams that we left behind have left their footprints in our future.


  • We should always remember that promises do not describe the future; rather promises only describe today’s intentions.


  • Many of life’s gifts should be regarded as wages for performances well done.


  • It is said that before we can understand another that we need to walk a mile in his shoes; but actually, we also need to walk the very same mile, a requirement that can seldom be met.


  • Flattery is sweet to swallow but is nothing that sustains.


  • Love, which is expressed to us only after we have first expressed it to another, resembles an echo in that we receive only that which we first sent.


  • An agreement by two, broken by one, is an agreement to none.


  • In a long-life, we will be deceived by many; but the deceiver that is most common and harmful will be ourselves.


  • Sometimes if you give a man enough rope, he’ll hang you.


  • Many of our pains are only stimuli that have been magnified by our fears.


  • Many of our pleasures are only stimuli that have been magnified by our desires.


  • We shouldn’t find fault with what we don’t understand; but further consideration reveals that we don’t understand anything, not even ourselves.


  • The doorway to intellectual growth is labeled “doubt”.


  • When one is in need, but doesn’t transgress, then virtue is present; however, there is no virtue in not transgressing when there is no need to do so.


  • “Fair” was created for games, not for life.


  • Many lies are like mimes in that close examination reveals that they are both fakes.


  • For some, having enough money would be impossible, even on their deathbeds.


  • Never expect to dip pure water from a fouled stream.


  • Since many say that “It’s not the gift but the thought that counts.” next time try just giving a thought and see what happens.


  • It is easy to mistake determination as being genius.


  • We are little less free when we are chained than if we feel the need to carry the untethered chain with us.


  • Our greatest wealth is not found in our possessions but in the satisfaction that we have with what we already possess.


  • When at sea, the North Star is useful for navigation; when living life, the “Desire Star” and the “Fear Star” are both poor navigational aids; this is because much of what we desire we don’t need and is often very harmful, and much of what we need we don’t desire; and much of what we fear poses no danger and much of what poses a danger we don’t fear.


  • A pat on a friend’s back is an encouragement; a pat on an enemy’s back is an assault.


  • Coins and arguments always have two sides.


  • The enemy without is less to be feared than the enemy within.
