I am a lover of truth, a worshipper of freedom, a celebrant at the altar of language and purity and tolerance.
For we walk by faith, not by sight
Learned we may be with another man's learning: we can only be wise with wisdom of our own.
The lie is a condition of life.
Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.
It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.
Only from the heart can you touch the sky.
The object of the superior man is truth.
Men build too many walls and not enough bridges.
Desire, ignorance, and inequality—this is the trinity of bondage.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
A person who spends more than he earns is a fool
Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.
The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.
Everybody is ignorant, only on different subjects.
The greatest power we have is the power of choice.
In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you.
Attachment is the great fabricator of illusions; reality can be attained only by someone who is detached.
Destiny is not a passive agent that lies in the lap of the Gods, but is an active instrument that lies in your own hands to shape as you will.
Learning and wisdom are superfluities, the surface glitter merely, but it is the heart that is the seat of all power.
Your reputation is in the hands of others. That's what the reputation is. You can't control that. The only thing you can control is your character.
