In our daily life, we encounter people who are angry, deceitful, intent only on satisfying their own needs. There is so much anger, distrust, greed, and pettiness that we are losing our capacity to work well together.
Margaret J. Wheatley
Nothing gives one person so much advantage over another as to remain always cool and unruffled under all circumstances.
It was the labor movement that helped secure so much of what we take for granted today. The 40-hour work week, the minimum wage, family leave, health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, retirement plans. The cornerstones of the middle-class security all bear the union label.
My girlfriend and I never let each other forget how much we love each other. It's all about reminding the other person how important and special she is to you.
I have no regrets. I don't believe in looking back. What I am proudest of? Working really hard... and achieving as much as I could.
Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.
A friend who is far away is sometimes much nearer than one who is at hand. Is not the mountain far more awe-inspiring and more clearly visible to one passing through the valley than to those who inhabit the mountain?
Nothing strengthens authority so much as silence.
Leonardo da Vinci
Do not give in too much to feelings. A overly sensitive heart is an unhappy possession on this shaky earth.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Freedom isn't free. It shouldn't be a bragging point that 'Oh, I don't get involved in politics,' as if that makes someone cleaner. No, that makes you derelict of duty in a republic. Liars and panderers in government would have a much harder time of it if so many people didn't insist on their right to remain ignorant and blindly agreeable.
Too much of what is called 'education' is little more than an expensive isolation from reality.
Life flies by, and it's easy to get lost in the blur. In adolescence, it's 'How do I fit in?' In your 20s, it's 'What do I want to do?' In your 30s, 'Is this what I'm meant to do?' I think the trick is living the questions. Not worrying so much about what's ahead but rather sitting in the grey area - being OK with where you are.
To expect too much is to have a sentimental view of life and this is a softness that ends in bitterness.
If at first you don't succeed... so much for skydiving.
You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough.
You and I are all as much continuous with the physical universe as a wave is continuous with the ocean.
As a person, I'm pretty much the same except that I've come to terms with who my real friends and supporters are. I don't get particularly friendly with new people at first go.
Medicine really matured me as a person because, as a physician, you're obviously dealing with life and death issues, issues much more serious than what we're talking about in entertainment. You can't get more serious than life and death. And if you can handle that, you can handle anything.
I was bullied by a few people who were much older than me. I went to camp to learn boxing. I was 12, and my coach was 24. I felt like if I could fight him, I could stand up to anyone.
Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid.
The trouble with our Liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so.
There's something about a holiday that isn't all about how much money you spend.
Disappointment is a sort of bankruptcy - the bankruptcy of a soul that expends too much in hope and expectation.
Sadly, it's much easier to create a desert than a forest.
A lovely nook of forest scenery, or a grand rock, like a beautiful woman, depends for much of its attractiveness upon the attendance sense of freedom from whatever is low; upon a sense of purity and of romance.
P. T. Barnum
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
