If you have no critics you'll likely have no success.
Love truth, but pardon error.
Inside every cynical person, there is a disappointed idealist
The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know internal peace can give it to others.
If you're gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.
