Ordinary riches can be stolen; real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you.
I lost my mother when I was 7 and they put her in a mental hospital. My brother and I watched her being taken away in a strait jacket. That's something you never forget.

Life every man holds dear; but the dear man holds honor far more precious dear than life.
Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.
Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. The older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.
A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy.

We need to appreciate how precious life is.
Having lived in the arid deserts of Southern California since the 1970s, my interest in water conservation is a very personal concern. Water! The source of life! Some people are squandering the world's most precious resource while others have too little clean water to drink.
The generous wish to share with all what is precious, to spread broadcast priceless truths, to shut out none from the illumination of true knowledge, has resulted in a zeal without discretion that has vulgarised Christianity, and has presented its teachings in a form that often repels the heart and alienates the intellect.
The fears you run away from run toward you. The fears you don't own will own you. But behind every fear wall lives a precious treasure.
Robin S. Sharma
I'm a lot less precious than I used to be about putting things out, for better or for worse. The result of a public that has a very high consumption rate and turnover rate is people listen to more music but spend less time with individual bits of music.
Touch was important.

There was envy when we saw sacks with more in them than we had.

Life is short. I'm 47 years old. I've got 10 years to go where I can be the best I can be. I want those 10 years to be precious, not like before, cranking two or three movies a year. I've made a ton of movies in my life, but so what?
Jean-Claude Van Damme

W. Clement Stone
