I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.
Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.
It marks a big step in your development when you come to realize that other people can help you do a better job than you could do alone.
Accept whatever comes to you woven in the pattern of your destiny, for what could more aptly fit your needs?
They alone live, who live for others.
When I'm good, I'm very good, but when I'm bad, I'm better.
I don't care what people think or say about me, I know who I am.
Today I shall behave, as if this is the day I will be remembered.
Life is entrusted to man as a treasure which must not be squandered, as a talent which must be used well.
If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it - then I can achieve it.
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
Neither seek nor avoid, take what comes.
If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free. If our wealth commands us, we are poor indeed.
I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not.
Be happy, but never satisfied.
Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
All wealth is the product of labor.
You have to make the rules, not follow them.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
