And no one will listen to us until we listen to ourselves.
If we know exactly where we're going, exactly how to get there, and exactly what we'll see along the way, we won't learn anything.
Learn as though you would never be able to master it; hold it as though you would be in fear of losing it.
It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.
The experience gathered from books, though often valuable,is but the nature of learning whereas the experience gained from actual life is of the nature of wisdom.
Man is not the creature of circumstances, Circumstances are the creatures of men.
Generosity is giving more than you can, and pride is taking less than you need.
In a good bookroom you feel in some mysterious way that you are absorbing the wisdom contained in all the books through your skin, without even opening them.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Tomorrow hopes we have learned something from yesterday.
Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives.
Only idiots refuse to change their minds.
Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach.
The object of the superior man is truth.
Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.
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 good teacher protects his pupils from his own influence.
He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.
Whatever it is you're seeking won't come in the form you're expecting.
The place where you made your stand never mattered. Only that you were there...and still on your feet.
If you buy what you do not need, you will need what you cannot buy.
