  • Those with convictions about that which is false produces far more harm to mankind than do those that intentionally lie, because a lie is pursued weakly and for a short period while a falsely held conviction may last a lifetime and be pursued with vigor.


  • The very best gift that can be given to a loved one is to be the very best loved one that. one can be. Anything that diminishes oneself tends to diminish that which another loves.


  • It is said that “we see things the way we are” instead of the way things are, but actually we do see things as they are, for what else could the eye do? What happens is that once we see things as they are, the mind lies to itself and declares it to be something different. The eye is innocent; the mind is guilty.


  • Were it not for fear of the truth, none would lie.


  • The claim that “All the world’s a stage.” fits well with the observation that so many perform roles throughout life instead of being themselves.


  • The more prepared we are for the future, the luckier we become.


  • Happiness in finding a life-long soul mate is to find someone that looks at you as a finished product instead of raw materials ready for processing.


  • It is such a mystery that we mourn over the things left undone for one now dead, yet leave things undone for those that still live.


  • It takes care to harvest the raspberry without getting pricked.


  • Those that tarry too long in deciding what to do in life will discover that life has done them


  • We should wonder why in general things are more attractive while being pursued than they are while being possessed.


  • Only the person, apparently acting courageously, can tell you whether an act was done because of ignorance of the danger, whether done to impress others, whether for fear of what others might say if the act were not done, or whether the act was done because that was the right thing to do in spite of one’s fear.


  • We may undeservedly praise another to encourage what they do. We may undeservedly praise another in the hope that they will praise us whether we deserve praise or not. The first is praiseworthy; the second is not.


  • The only logical thing that you can conclude about someone that knows many words that you don’t is that they know many words that you don’t know.


  • Some drink at the fountain of knowledge while others that are there just wash their feet.


  • Growing up is when we do something well and we no longer expect someone to put a gold star on it.
