Set priorities for your goals. A major part of successful living lies in the ability to put first things first. Indeed, the reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first.

Earl Nightingale

People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.

Henry Ford

When I can't handle events, I let them handle themselves.

Henry David Thoreau

Most men would feel insulted if it were proposed to employ them in throwing stones over a wall, and then in throwing them back, merely that they might earn their wages. But many are no more worthily employed now.

People who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

It is a barren kind of criticism which tells you what a thing is not.

If the world were so organized that everything has to be fair, no living creature could survive for a day. The birds would be forbidden to eat worms, and everyone's self-interest would have to be served.

Ben-Azai

In seeking wisdom thou are wise; in imagining that thou hast attained it thou are a fool.

Hermann Hesse

Knowledge can be communicated, but wisdom cannot. A man can find it, he can live it, he can be filled and sustained by it, but he cannot utter or teach it.
