    Never sink to the level of stupidity, you will be beaten by experience every time.

      That would explain it some times!

      Very true.  I do sometimes sink to that over little things.  Thanks.

    "Be careful, not afraid". I actually wrote a blog post on my personal blog about this saying. And in all reality, I'm only writing this because HubPages told me that the quote itself was too short. I apologize for this useless rambling!

      Thank you ShaydeShaffer.  You don't owe anyone any apology.  Thanks for sharing and I'd be interested in reading more about life's wisdom in your blog.

    Know the truth and the truth will set you free.

    This applies to every problem. If the problem persists, you have not yet found the truth of it. In every case I've found, you are deeply involved in creating the problem. Taking 100% responsibility with humility, love and faith will help you see the truth.

    Thank you, Yehoshua, Lord of Lords, for such profound wisdom.

    Forgive, but never forget what it has taught you.

      Yes, so true.  Sometimes people say 'forgive and forget' but it is wise never to forget what it has taught us.  Thank you.

    Quite simply, I would have to conclude it would constitute to...
    "Never be in a hurry."

      Thank you ConnorJ.  I myself have made some bad decisions when I am in a hurry.  Speaking hastily without slowing down and assessing the situation is sometime my weakness and the pictures above correctly depicts that.

    My answer for this comes from the wise words of Emerson:
    Success Is...

    To laugh often and much,
    To win the respect of intelligent people
    and the affection of children,
    To earn the appreciation of honest critics
    And endure the betrayal of false friends,
    To appreciate beauty,
    To find the best in others,
    To leave the world a bit better whether
    by a healthy child, a garden patch,
    or a redeemed social condition,
    To know even one life has breathed easier
    because you lived...
    This is to have succeeded.


    Those right there are some wise, wise words!! smile

      Great choice.  Emerson is amazing and enduring. "to know even one life has breated easier because you lived..."  Stunningly beautiful.

    "Religion is a necessity, without the fear of god many people are too weak minded to do the right thing."

    Best line I ever heard, good ol' professor Sivil

    The world that you believe exists is only a set of concepts floating in your mind. Everybody collects a different set of concepts that they believe is the real world. The ultimate truth is, without any of those concepts, there is no world. It has no true existence.
