Quote of the Day
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
The mark of a true crush... is that you fall in love first and grope for reasons afterward.
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
We are raising today's children in sterile, risk-averse and highly structured environments. In so doing, we are failing to cultivate artists, pioneers and entrepreneurs, and instead cultivating a generation of children who can follow the rules in organized sports games, sit for hours in front of screens and mark bubbles on standardized tests.
Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you.
When one makes a Revolution, one cannot mark time; one must always go forward - or go back. He who now talks about the 'freedom of the press' goes backward, and halts our headlong course towards Socialism.
Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg didn't finish college. Too much emphasis is placed on formal education - I told my children not to worry about their grades but to enjoy learning.
Nassim Nicholas Taleb
I didn't want to be greedy. It's a mark of bad character and I always believed that pigs go the slaughterhouse.
It is the mark of a great man that he puts to flight all ordinary calculations. He is at once sublime and touching, childlike and of the race of giants.
Honore de Balzac
Badges mean nothing in themselves, but they mark a certain achievement and they are a link between the rich and the poor. For when one girl sees a badge on a sister Scout's arm, if that girl has won the same badge, it at once awakens an interest and sympathy between them.
Juliette Gordon Low
Each Warrior wants to leave the mark of his will, his signature, on important acts he touches. This is not the voice of ego but of the human spirit, rising up and declaring that it has something to contribute to the solution of the hardest problems, no matter how vexing!
Self-control is one mark of a mature person; it applies to control of language, physical treatment of others, and the appetites of the body.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
You must never be satisfied with losing. You must get angry, terribly angry, about losing. But the mark of the good loser is that he takes his anger out on himself and not his victorious opponents or on his teammates.
Richard M. Nixon
It's a special person - and personality - who can lead a start-up to soaring success and sustain that success for the long term. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg are star examples.
It's joyful to give. But for people who want to take advantage of you, you're kind of an easy mark.
The countenance is the portrait of the soul, and the eyes mark its intentions.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
A large nose is the mark of a witty, courteous, affable, generous and liberal man.
Cyrano de Bergerac
Gratitude is a mark of a noble soul and a refined character. We like to be around those who are grateful.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Time has no divisions to mark its passage, there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets to announce the beginning of a new month or year. Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals who ring bells and fire off pistols.
The mark of a mature programmer is willingness to throw out code you spent time on when you realize it's pointless.
The mark of your ignorance is the depth of your belief in injustice and tragedy. What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the Master calls the butterfly.
Immortality is to live your life doing good things, and leaving your mark behind.
For all my friends in the media who like quotes, mark this quote down. From this day on I'd like to be known as 'The Big Aristotle' because Aristotle once said, 'Excellence is not a singular act; it's a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.'
We aim above the mark to hit the mark.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
