People who treat other people as less than human must not be surprised when the bread they have cast on the waters comes floating back to them, poisoned.
James A. Baldwin
I would like to be remembered as a man who had a wonderful time living life, a man who had good friends, fine family - and I don't think I could ask for anything more than that, actually.
In less than a hundred years, we have found a new way to think of ourselves. From sitting at the center of the universe, we now find ourselves orbiting an average-sized sun, which is just one of millions of stars in our own Milky Way galaxy.
Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.
Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good ones.
A harmful truth is better than a useful lie.
It is better to learn late than never.
He who reigns within himself and rules passions, desires, and fears is more than a king.
I say I am stronger than fear.
It's so important to keep a marriage alive with small treats and doing little things for each other. Just remembering to say nice things and to have listening time is vital. That ghastly phrase 'quality time' means taking three minutes to sit down and be still with someone rather than yelling over your shoulder as you rush out.
I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.
Live one day at a time emphasizing ethics rather than rules.
Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.
Money is better than poverty, if only for financial reasons.
It is better for you to be free of fear lying upon a pallet, than to have a golden couch and a rich table and be full of trouble.
By striving to do the impossible, man has always achieved what is possible. Those who have cautiously done no more than they believed possible have never taken a single step forward.
People became more interested in my love life than in me, and that has a certain effect. You start to feel very empty and worth nothing, you start to become a piece in a board game you never wanted to play.
Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.
Never continue in a job you don't enjoy. If you're happy in what you're doing, you'll like yourself, you'll have inner peace. And if you have that, along with physical health, you will have had more success than you could possibly have imagined.
They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice... that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.
We all learn lessons in life. Some stick, some don't. I have always learned more from rejection and failure than from acceptance and success.
I liberate minds with my music. That's more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or whatever.
I live a very dull life here... indeed I think I am more like a state prisoner than anything else.
There's a bond among a kitchen staff, I think. You spend more time with your chef in the kitchen than you do with your own family.
When it comes to idiots, America's got more than its fair share. If idiots were energy, it would be a source that would never run out.
