There is only one success--to be able to spend your life in your own way.
-- Christopher Morley
We are the music-makers,And we are the dreamers of dreams, Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams; World-losers and world-foresakers, On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers Of the world for ever, it seems.
With wonderful deathless ditties We build up the world's cities, And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire's glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure, Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song's measure Can trample an empire down.
We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth, Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o'erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world's worth; For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.
-- Arthur O'Shaughnessy
Learning is finding out what you already know.
Doing is demonstrating that you know it.
Teaching is reminding others that they know just as well as you.
You are all learners, doers, teachers.
-- Richard Bach
I expect to pass through this world but once, any good thing, therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this away again.
-- Stephen Grellet
A man profits more by the sight of an idiot than by the orations of the learned.
-- Saudi Arabian Proverb
A little government and a little luck are necessary in life, but only a fool trusts either of them.
-- P. J. O'Rourke
Make faithfulness and truth thy masters; have no friends unlike thyself; be not ashamed to mend thy faults.
God wants nothing of you but the gift of a peaceful heart.
-- Meister Eckhart
You cannot step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
Common sense is perhaps the most equally divided, but surely the most underemployed, talent in the world.
-- Christiane Callange
