Good wise sayings

   Patterning your life around other's opinions is nothing more than slavery.
  ~Author : Lawana Blackwell Good Wise Quotes

   So as a prince is forced to know how to act like a beast, he must learn from the fox and the lion; becouse the lion is defenceless against traps and the fox is defenceless against wolves. Therefore one must be a fox in order to recognise traps and lion to frighten off wolves.
  ~Author : Niccollo Machavelli The Prince Inspirational Wise Sayings

   You're never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.
  ~Author : Lou Holtz Nice Quotes

   Nature is not cruel, pitilessly, indifferent. This is one of the hardest lessons for humans to learn. We cannot admit that things might be neither good nor evil, neither cruel nor kind, but simply callous -- indifferent to all suffering, lacking all purpose.
  ~Author : Richard Dawkins Great Sayings

   It is not really difficult to construct a series of inferences, each dependent upon its predecessor and each simple in itself. If, after doing so, one simply knocks out all the central inferences and presents one's audience with the starting-point and the conclusion, one may produce a startling, though perhaps a meretricious, effect.
  ~Author : Frederick Douglas Famous Quotes

   When you wish to instruct, be brief that men's minds take in quickly what you say, learn its lesson, and retain it faithfully. Every word that is unnecessary only pours over the side of a brimming mind.
  ~Author : Marcus Tullius Cicero Inspirational Sayings

   Even holligans marry, though they know that marriage is but for a little while. It is alimony that is forever.
  ~Author : Quentin Crisp Nice Quotes
