Quote of the Day
The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.
Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.
Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.
We must never forget why we have, and why we need our military. Our armed forces exist solely to ensure our nation is safe, so that each and every one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have 'guardians at the gate.'
Real integrity is doing the right thing, knowing that nobody's going to know whether you did it or not.
The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing... not healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares.
On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people.
The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along.
Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.
Challenge is the pathway to engagement and progress in our lives. But not all challenges are created equal. Some challenges make us feel alive, engaged, connected, and fulfilled. Others simply overwhelm us. Knowing the difference as you set bigger and bolder challenges for yourself is critical to your sanity, success, and satisfaction.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
Henry David Thoreau
Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence.
Pope John Paul II
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.
Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do and what is right to do.
What gives me the most hope every day is God's grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God.
Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
It is only in adventure that some people succeed in knowing themselves - in finding themselves.
My childhood, I wouldn't say it was bad. It helped me grow up. I stayed out of trouble. My parents taught me what's wrong and right, and knowing that I had a little brother following me, I had to make sure I was doing the right thing so he knows what's right, too. I was in the house nine days out of 10. There wasn't nothing good outside for me.
A good leader can engage in a debate frankly and thoroughly, knowing that at the end he and the other side must be closer, and thus emerge stronger. You don't have that idea when you are arrogant, superficial, and uninformed.
I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
So many people prefer to live in drama because it's comfortable. It's like someone staying in a bad marriage or relationship - it's actually easier to stay because they know what to expect every day, versus leaving and not knowing what to expect.
John F. Kennedy
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
