The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing.
Stars can’t shine without darkness.
Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo.
Embrace what you don’t know.
Only strength can cooperate. Weakness can only beg.
Somewhere something incredible is waiting to be known.
If you can do it, it ain't bragging.
If you haven’t found it yet keep looking. Don’t settle as with all matters of the heart. You’ll know when you find it and, like any great relationship it just gets better and better as the years roll on.
Decide what you want, decide what you are willing to exchange for it. Establish your priorities and go to work.
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
True education begins with physical abuse.
The test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function.
If anyone can show me, and prove to me, that I am wrong in thought or deed, I will gladly change. I seek the truth, which never yet hurt anybody. It is only persistence in self-delusion and ignorance which does harm.
We must expect reverses, even defeats. They are sent to teach us wisdom and prudence, to call forth greater energies and to prevent our falling into greater disasters.
Surround yourself with people that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel, energies are contagious.
