The fear of failure is much more stimulating than the reward of success.

The soul is the perceiver and revealer of truth.
We know the truth when we see it, let skeptic and scoffer say what they choose.
( Ralph Waldo Emerson )

Other planets might not be able to support life, but this one isn’t exactly finding it easy.

We can’t always change people, so don’t drive yourself crazy trying.
Instead just change how you deal with them, or just stay away from them.

Never take a step backwards.
Not even to gain momentum.

We should not be ashamed to acknowledge truth and to assimilate it from whatever source it comes to us, even if it is brought to us by former generations and foreign peoples.

The black sheep of the family is often just the one who sees through everyone else’s bullshit.

Fame was once seen as recognition of your accomplishments in the world.
Now it just means being recognised.

Truth is not always a virtue when it is pursued for its own sake or, worse, simply to make its teller feel morally superior.

Why not declare DIY illegal, close all the DIY stores and give work back to joiners, decorators, electricians, plumbers and gardeners etc?
Hospital admissions would tumble, apprenticeships return, and husbands would be able to do what they did when men were men.

From the very depth of my being, I challenge the right of any man or any group of men, in business or in government, to tell a fellow human being he or she is expendable.

It is not even the beginning of the end.
It is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

Always make the most of what you have.

Keep a sense of humour, especially about yourself.
It is a strength beyond all measure.
( Dan Millman )

Obstinacy and heat of opinion are the surest proof of stupidity.

There are two kinds of people in the world.
Givers and takers.
The takers may eat better, but the givers sleep better.

It’s okay to believe yourself better than the rest of the planet, so long as you keep it to yourself.

( Winston Churchill )

Nobody stands taller than those willing to stand corrected.

We can be as honest as we are ignorant.
If we are, then when we are asked how the universe was formed and how life was created, we must say we do not know.

Focus on making yourself better, not on thinking that you are better.
( Bohdi Sanders )

Keep moving if you love life, and keep your troubles well behind you.

If you woke up this morning with more health than illness, you are more blessed than the many who will not even survive this day.

There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve.
That is Love.

All endings are also beginnings.
We just don’t know it at the time.

Be courteous to all but intimate with few and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
