📌 Words of Wisdom? Food For Thought? ...I think so...

It takes courage to grow up and turn out to be who you really are.

Life is like a piano… what you get out of it depends on how you play it.

Use the talents you possess — for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best.

To err is human, to blame the next guy even more so.

A library is an arsenal of liberty.

A hunch is creativity trying to tell you something.

A little inaccuracy sometimes saves tons of explanation.

Courage atrophies from lack of use.

Blessed are we who can laugh at ourselves for we shall never cease to be amused.

If you don’t believe in something, you’ll fall for anything.

Experience is the hardest teacher, because she gives the test first, and the lesson after.

It’s hard to be nostalgic when you can’t remember anything.

Practice Random Acts of Kindness and Senseless Beauty.

Failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

If everybody’s thinking alike, somebody isn’t thinking.

God put me on Earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I’m so far behind I will never die!


Enjoy,

Can I add some? I'm no warmonger, but these lessons from The Fog of War are quite good guidelines:
Lesson #1: Empathize with your enemy.
Lesson #2: Rationality alone will not save us.
Lesson #3: There's something beyond one's self.
Lesson #4: Maximize efficiency.
skip 5
Lesson #6: Get the data.
Lesson #7: Belief and seeing, both are often wrong.
Lesson #8: Be prepared to reexamine your reasoning.
Lesson #9: In order to do good, you may have to engage in evil.
Lesson #10: Never say never.
Lesson #11: You can't change human nature.

I like this one, We're not rich enough to buy cheap things
and this one by Oscar Wilde,
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

I love those quotes... narkom12 Dancing Dancing
I’m going to use them, ok?

I have a quote, at the end of my emails, that I change monthly...

Here I’ve added a couple more:
"Care about what other people think, and you will always be their prisoner." ~ Lao Tzu Brick wall

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” ~ Mae West Whistle

"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits." ~ Albert EinsteinApplause

As this is not posted in the correct thread but in the Literature thread instead; it becomes important to note: The purported Einstein "quote" does not appear in any published work by or about Einstein. It's one of those fake quotes such as Marie Antoinette saying "Let them eat cake."

So don't use it in any of your exam/academic papers.

It's simply a mistake some people make.No biggie.
