Arthur Conan Doyle
I have often wondered how it is that every man loves himself more than all the rest of men, but yet sets less value on his own opinions of himself than on the opinions of others.
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.
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.
You learn far more from negative leadership than from positive leadership. Because you learn how not to do it. And, therefore, you learn how to do it.
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.
A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.
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.
Individually, people are finding that a simpler lifestyle provides greater satisfaction than relentless pursuit of materialism.
I can understand how some people might resent me for having the audacity to continue playing music, but it'd take a lot more than that to stop me from doing it. I started Foo Fighters because I didn't want to retreat.
My portraits are more about me than they are about the people I photograph.
It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.
It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education than to have education without common sense.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.
Henry Ward Beecher
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don't know one child with a full time job and children.
Pleasure without God, without the sacred boundaries, will actually leave you emptier than before. And this is biblical truth, this is experiential truth. The loneliest people in the world are amongst the wealthiest and most famous who found no boundaries within which to live. That is a fact I've seen again and again.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
