We work to become, not to acquire.
Lots of folks confuse bad management with destiny.
Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
Religions are many and diverse, but reason and goodness are one.
Positive anything is better than negative nothing.
If you work for a man, in heaven's name work for him! If he pays you wages that supply you your bread and butter, work for him -- speak well of him, think well of him, stand by him and stand by the institution he represents. I think if I worked for a man I would work for him. I would not work for him a part of the time, and the rest of the time work against him. I would give an undivided service or none. If put to the pinch, an ounce of loyalty is worth a pound of cleverness.
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing that you will make one.
I would rather be able to appreciate things I can not have than to have things I am not able to appreciate.
Many a man's reputation would not know his character if they met on the street.
Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
Life in abundance comes only through great love.
He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.
Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
Progress comes from the intelligent use of experience.
The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it.
This will never be a civilized country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum.
So long as governments set the example of killing their enemies, private individuals will occasionally kill theirs.
