It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.....




Act as if what you do makes a difference.  It does....





Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself....





The purpose of life is not to be happy - but to matter, to be productive, to be useful, to have it make some difference that you have lived at all....





It seems to me that any full grown, mature adult would have a desire to be responsible, to help where he can in a world that needs so very much, that threatens us so very much....





I am only one, but I am one.  I cannot do everything, but I can do something.  And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do....





The willingness to share does not make one charitable; it makes one free....





It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can...





Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could only do a little...





If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one....





He who gives when he is asked has waited too long....





While earning your daily bread, be sure you share a slice with those less fortunate...





I wondered why somebody didn't do something.  Then I realized, I am somebody....





What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal...





The day was counting up its birds and never got the answer right. ...


 


Night and morning are making promises to each other which neither will be able to keep....





Silence moves faster when it's going backward....





We are never prepared for what we expect....





It has been said repeatedly that one can never, try as he will, get around to the front of the universe.  Man is destined to see only its far side, to realize nature only in retreat....





Fear is a cloak which old men huddle about their love, as if to keep it warm....





You can owe nothing, if you give back its light to the sun...





Those who gave away their wings are sad not to see them fly.,,,





Invent a past for the present....





A hunter of shadows is himself a shade.....





The only interesting answers are those which destroy the questions....





Everything is a miracle.  It is a miracle that one does not dissolve in one's bath like a lump of sugar....





No matter how fast light travels it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it....





The first step shall be to lose the way....





He who does not fill his world with phantoms remains alone.....





They have stopped deceiving you, not loving you and it seems to you that they have stopped loving you....





He who holds me by a thread is not strong; the thread is strong....





We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered...





You purchase pain with all that joy can give, and die of nothing but a rage to live....





My whole life is waiting for the questions to which I have prepared answers....





Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you.  Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch it to be sure....



 


How is it that our memory is good enough to retain the least triviality that happens to us, and yet not good enough to recollect how often we have told it to the same person...?





As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold....





An unwatched pot boils immediately....





If you wonder where your child left his roller skates, try walking around the house in the dark....





Anything you lose,  automatically doubles in value....




 
When the plane you are on is late, the plane you want to transfer to is on time.....  




The trouble with, "A place for everything and everything in its place" is that there's always more everything than places......




There are men whom you will never dislodge from an opinion, except by taking possession of it yourself...





People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them....





It's annoying to be disapproved of by people who know only half the story - especially when you're not sure which half they know....





Admiration is a very short-lived passion, that immediately decays upon growing familiar with its object; unless it be still fed with fresh discoveries, and kept alive by a perpetual succession of miracles rising into view.....
