Don't talk about yourself; it will be done when you leave....




I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive.  Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.......






We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.....







Man is harder than rock and more fragile than an egg......





Men!  The only animal in the world to fear.....






Adam ate the apple, and our teeth still ache......






Man uses his intelligence less in the care of his own species than he does in his care of anything else he owns or governs....







Humility does not mean thinking less of yourself than of other people, nor does it mean having a low opinion of your own gifts.  It means freedom from thinking about yourself at all...







Swallow your pride occasionally, it's non-fattening!.........






It is well to remember that the entire population of the universe, with one trifling exception, is composed of others.....






A man wrapped up in himself makes a very small bundle....






It wasn't until late in life that I discovered how easy it is to say "I don't know."   ....







Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are.......






It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles......






Some people are born on third base and go through life thinking they hit a triple.....







Glory is largely a theatrical concept, there is no striving for glory without a vivid awareness of an audience...








When someone sings his own praises, he always gets the tune too high......







None are so empty as those who are full of themselves.......







One learns to ignore criticism by first learning to ignore applause......






Any party which takes credit for the rain must not be surprised if its opponents blame it for the drought....






If every fool wore a crown, we should all be kings....







Nobody stands taller than those willing to stand corrected......






Ideals are like stars:  you will not succeed in touching them with your hands, but like the seafaring man on the desert of waters, you choose them as your guides, and following them you reach your destiny......









When a man forgets his ideals he may hope for happiness, but not till then.....








Idealism increases in direct proportion to one's distance from the problem.....







Keep doing some kind of work, that the devil may always find you employed......







Few women and fewer men have enough character to be idle.....






When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. .....



 



When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.......






Fall seven times, stand up eight......






When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn......






The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning.....









What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us......







Most of us, swimming against the tides of trouble the world knows nothing about, need only a bit of praise or encouragement - and we will make the goal..... 








It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves......







If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.....






Pain is inevitable.  Suffering is optional.....






A bend in the road is not the end of the road... unless you fail to make the turn.....
