Profanity is the crutch of the inarticulate motherfu**ker.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
Einstein said, "There are only two things in the universe that are infinite - the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."
We must all gain knowledge any way possible and prove Einstein wrong.
Don't worry, be happy!
I always tell my children as they live their lives to the fullest and enjoy what they like to do most.
I have to quote Nietzsche.... "that which does not kill me makes me stronger"
I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8 to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30.
The greatest barrier to success is the fear of failure.

The Lord is My Shepherd I shall not want - Proverbs 23:1
Meaning: My Lord and Savior Is my Shepherd who feeds me, guides me and shields me and I will not lack any good thing because He is my provider.
"Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things."
Have lots I like but here's one: power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely
The hottest place in hell is reserved for those who in times of great moral conflict, remain neutral.
Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a polluted mind, suffering will follow you, as the wheels of the oxcart follow the footsteps of the ox. Everything is based on mind, is led by mind, is fashioned by mind. If you speak and act with a pure mind, happiness will follow you, as a shadow clings to a form.
Just do it. Is the most inspiring one for my every day life.
Nisargadatta Maharaj said:
"Wisdom is knowing I am nothing,
Love is knowing I am everything,
and between the two my life moves."
Do one thing every day that scares you.” (EleanoRoosevelt)“
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” (Mahatma Gandhi) Both of these are my favorite. I have needed these two to help me through some pretty heavy stuff in my life.
No good Deeds can result into evil. Let us take the opportunity to do good even just for a day.
"The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." ~Confucious
My favorite is one that I came up with: Never except a free lunch. It will cost too much.
"...no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should." Desiderata
"It is better to die a lion, than to live a pussy"
-Balls of Fury
That's: The lord is my shepherd, there is nothing that I shall want.
It has been my all time favorite and gives me strength whenever I feel low.
The cost of living has gone up which means the chance of living has gone down. (Flip Wilson)
"Never let go of the horse that caried you through the desert."
"Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right..." -Henry Ford.
It's so true, it's definitely my favourite saying.
my favorite saying is something i initiated and try to live by. it is "if anything exists, i need two of it." the result, unfortunately, is that i have a lot of stuff. garage sale quality, but still stuff.
"Fighting for peace is like f**king for virginity"
Slightly crass way of putting the point across but does encapsulate the world today in it
Mr Roberts your check is in the mail and
"The power is yours" Captain Planet.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway. You'll be damned if you do, and damned if you don't.
Everyone in their heart does know what's right. Just follow ur heart.
"Abscence makes the heart grow fonder" is probably my favorite. I hope so, because my boyfriend will probably be leaving for college next year;(
Help Ever, Hurt Never; Love All, Serve All. All are One, Be alike to everyone. I believe all the above three and try to adhere as far as possible.
"In reality as in dreams, nothing is quite as it seems."
-The Book of Counted Sorrows
Hamlet: "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy."
As writers we are often inspired by other writers. The following quote by George Bernard Shaw sums up my approach to writing quite succinctly:
"When you see something, you say, 'Why?'; but when I dream of things that never were, I say, 'Why not?'."
" Time and tide wait for none." So respect the value of time else time will spoil you.
"When stresses of work stretch your patience to the limit, go home; share a smile with your wife, play games with your children. Share in the childs world of innocence, and the answers to your own difficulties will reveal themselves soon enough." - Spencer Camus
Live and let live. I truly believe that humanity is too caught up in th private lives of others. Think how relaxed you might be if you knew that fewer peeople were in your business night and day. Of course, this is coming from a blogger and self-professed Facebook addict.

Did you know that the expression "A sound mind in a sound body" was incomplete?It was one of my mother's favourite expressions and it was delivered to me on a daily basis when I was a child. In Latin. Maybe because she was a doctor and I was a sickly weakling. Now, my son...

Do you have a favorite saying, or quote?A long time ago a man once told me "Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see". I never did check to see if this was a mainstream quote. I just preferred to keep it the wisdom of the man who said it to me. This phrase has stuck...
