The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
Samuel Johnson
Something that is popular is not always right; something that is right is not always popular
No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.
John Donne
You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about the future.
Progress is not made by the cynics or doubters. It is made by those who believe everything is possible.
Carly Fiorina (Fortune Magazine Nov 18 / 02)
Begin the morning by saying to yourself, I shall meet with the busybody, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, unsocial. All of these things happen to them by reason of their ignorance of what is good and evil. But I who have seen the nature of the good that it is beautiful, and of the bad that it is ugly, and the nature of him who does wrong, that it is akin to me, not only of the same blood or seed, but that it participates in the same intelligence and the same portion of the divinity. I can neither be injured by any of them, for no one can fix on me what is ugly, nor can I be angry with my kinsman, nor hate him. For we are made for cooperation, like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of upper and lower teeth. To act against one another then is contrary to nature: and it is acting against one another to be vexed and to turn away.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Don't seek for things to happen as you wish, but wish for things to happen as they do, and you will get on well.
No mortal man comes through life unscathed or knows real happiness. An unbruised human being has never yet been raised.
Nostalgia is possibly the greatest of the lies that we tell ourselves. It is the glossing of the past to fit the sensibilities of the present. For some, it brings a measure of comfort, a sense of self and of source, but others, I fear, take these altered memories too far, and because of that, paralyze themselves to the realities about them.

The girls that are always easy on the eyes are never easy on the heart.
If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude about it.
The Tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way...
William Blake - 1799
Some people cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.
Oscar Wilde
The strength of the pack is the wolf,
the strength of the wolf is the pack.
Those who smile when no one is around, mean it.
There is no glory in practice; without practice there is no glory.
