  • Which is the more cowardly, to cringe in fear when others show no fear of a clear and present danger, or to act fearlessly because of the fear of what others may think? The first is a fear of what might harm physically; the second is a fear only of the thoughts of others.


  • Anyone or anything that moves us away from that which is true is a corruption regardless of whether the act was intentional or not, whether performed by a religious leader, a political leader, parent, spouse, friend, or enemy.


  • If we lean too often on others for support, the others become brittle.


  • Donít cry over spilt milk; itís wet enough already, instead, milk the cow again..


  • There are many that seem so opposed to trying to understand themselves that it is easy to assume that they believe that ignorance trumps knowledge every time.


  • We should all hope that no one believes or disbelieves whatever we claim, only that they regard our claims as worthy of consideration.


  • Whenever we hear another say that they know something for certain, or even when we are certain of a fact, we should always realize that what is being expressed is only a feeling. The most certain thing in this situation is that we feel certain that what is being said or thought is the truth. Many times it is.


  • It is up to each generation to create the tools that will be needed for the next generation; it is not up to each generation to try and create a future that wonít require tools.


  • It is surprising how often when a dreaded circumstance occurs, that if we do absolutely nothing in response, nothing at all happens; the dreaded circumstance then becomes impatient and goes elsewhere to torment another.


  • The favorable opinions that we have of others go wasted in our coffins.


  • More of us would be willing to resist temptation if we were certain that it wouldnít go away permanently.


  • As a principle of life,-avoid irreversible acts if reversible acts hold any promise of success.


  • If you are proven wrong in a heated argument, few things will elevate you more in the eye of the winner as freely admitting that error, and nothing will decrease you more than to hang on to the original viewpoint as still being somehow correct.


  • To become what we can be, we must turn loose of what we have been.


  • A great advantage of written interchange with others is the opportunity of studying what the other has written, and then to be able to shape and review a response before its dispatch.


  • The wisest individual isnít the one that receives and recites the wisest thoughts of others, but the one that most retains and employs them.


  • If we would only scrutinize our own opinions as thoroughly as we do the opinions of others, we would not only have fewer opinions but more of those that are soundly based.


  • Alcohol is the irrigation that problems use to grow and multiply.


  • Some travel through life, so focused on the rear-view mirror that they fail to see the danger just before them.


  • Everlasting love would be like everlasting bread; both need to be made often to be of any value.
