>Life itself is a quotation.


"Quotations help us remember the simple yet profound truths that give life perspective and meaning. When it comes to life's most important lessons, we can all use gentle reminders." Chriswell Freeman

"Quotation is the highest compliment you can pay to an author." Samuel Johnson

"I pick my favourite quotations and store them in my mind as ready armour, offensive or defensive, amid the struggle of this turbulent existence." Robert Burns

"Life itself is a quotation." Jorge Luis Borges

"One must be a wise reader to quote wisely and well." Amos Bronson Alcott

"A fine quotation is a diamond on the finger of a man of wit, and a pebble in the hand of a fool." Joseph Roux

"The wisdom of the wise and the experience of the ages is preserved into perpetuity by a nation's proverbs, fables, folk sayings and quotations." William Feather

"It is a good thing for an uneducated man to read books of quotations. Bartlett's Familiar Quotations is an admirable work, and I studied it intently. The quotations when engraved upon the memory give you good thoughts. They also make you anxious to read the authors and look for more." Sir Winston Churchill

"I love quotations because it is a joy to find thoughts one might have, beautifully expressed with much authority by someone recognized wiser than oneself." Marlene Dietrich

"The next thing to saying a good thing yourself, is to quote one." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"A quote can change the way you think about challenges you face." Catherine Pulsifer

Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is a woman.
A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories.
Who refuses to carry the sins of others within her body and life.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
2 Peter 3:5   

For this they are willingly ignorant of... the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished.
Abraham Lincoln   

You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can not fool all of the people all of the time.
Abraham Lincoln   

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Abraham Lincoln   

I will prepare and some day my chance will come.
Abraham Lincoln   

If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?
Abraham Lincoln   

Whatever you are, be a good one.
Abraham Lincoln   

You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today.
Abraham Lincoln   

When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion.
Abraham Lincoln   

I destroy my enemies when I make them my friends.
Albert Einstein   

No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.
Albert Einstein   

At any rate, I am convinced that He [God] does not play dice.
Albert Einstein   

Try not to become a man of success but rather to become a man of value.
Albert Einstein   

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.
Albert Einstein   

If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts.
Albert Einstein   

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by the individual who can labor in freedom.
Albert Einstein   

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.
Albert Einstein   

As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; and as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality.
Albert Einstein   

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Albert Einstein   

If I were given one hour to save the planet, I would spend 59 minutes defining the problem and one minute resolving it.
Albert Einstein   

It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.
Albert Einstein   

Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.
Albert Einstein   

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment. Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.
Albert Einstein   

Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.
Albert Einstein   

Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Aldous Huxley   

As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends compensatingly to increase. And the dictator will do well to encourage that freedom. In conjunction with the freedom to daydream under the influence of dope and movies and the radio, it will help to reconcile his subjects to the servitude which is their fate.
Aldous Huxley    

The ends cannot justify the means for the simple and obvious reason that the means employed determine the nature of the ends produced
Aldous Huxley   

A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude.
Alec Bourne   

It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.
Angie Fenimore   

Life's supposed to be hard. We can't skip over the hard parts. We must earn what we receive.

Knowledge without work is dangerous

The best slave is the slave who thinks he is free, and the greatest fool is the fool who thinks he is a wise man.

What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.

I have gained this by philosophy: that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law.

It is not always the same thing to be a good man and a good citizen.
Arnold Schwarzenegger   

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.
Ben Schoeffler   

If you are confident in your beliefs then why are you getting upset?
Betty Eadie   

There is a fullness of the gospel, but most people will not attain it here. In order to grasp this truth, we need to listen to the Spirit and let go of our egos.
Betty Eadie   

Whatever we become here in mortality is meaningless unless it is done for the benefit of others.
Betty Eadie   

We are here to have love for every person born on earth. Their earthly form might be black, yellow, brown, handsome, ugly, thin, fat, wealthy, poor, intelligent, or ignorant, but we are not to judge by these appearances. Each spirit has the capacity to be filled with love and eternal energy.
Bill Tytla   

It is too limiting to copy someone else
Bruce Lee   

The man who is really serious, with the urge to find out what truth is, has no style at all.
Bruce Lee   

Take no thought of who is right or wrong or who is better than. Be not for or against.
Bruce Lee   

All fixed set patterns are incapable of adaptability or pliability. The truth is outside of all fixed patterns.
Bruce Lee   

If you love life, don't waste time, for time is what life is made up of.
Clint McGee   

Small minds discuss other people, average minds discuss events, and excellent minds discuss ideas.

Creation does not explain itself; under the Law, it cannot do so; its secrets have to be unraveled by the created.

All things are finite. An unaccomplishable purpose would be eternal frustration, and therefore, the universe being created purposefully it must have an objective.

What you know to be good, seek for and it shall be found.

Without substance, the Spirit of God was awake, but entering substance, it slept.

Had man not been created, who would have known God's wisdom and power?

The principles taught in this book will work only when they come from the heart. I am not advocating a bag of tricks. I am talking about a new way of life.

You can't win an argument

Do not disregard merit, saying, "It will not come nigh unto me"; by the falling of drops even a water-jar is filled, likewise the wise man, gathering little by little, fills himself with good.

Do not disregard evil, saying, "It will not come nigh unto me", by the falling of drops even a water-jar is filled, likewise the fool, gathering little by little, fills himself with evil.

Even if he is fond of quoting appropriate texts, the thoughtless man who does not put them into practice himself is like cowherd counting other people's cows, not a partner in the Holy Life.

Even if he does not quote appropriate texts much, if he follows the principles of the Teaching by getting rid of greed, hatred and delusion, deep of insight and with a mind free from attachment, not clinging to anything in this world or the next - that man is a partner in the Holy Life.

Before long this body will be lying on the ground, discarded and unconscious, like a useless bit of wood.

A fool who recognises his own ignorance is thereby in fact a wise man, but a fool who considers himself wise - that is what one really calls a fool.

Even if a man of intelligence lives with a wise man only for a moment, he will immediately recognise the truth, like one's tongue recognises the flavour of the soup.

Stupid fools go through life as their own enemies, doing evil deeds which have bitter consequences.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
