My most helpful one is something a mentor once told me regarding stress:
"Whatever you do, don't do nothing."
This helps me when I have a big stack of things to do and I feel paralyzed and overwhelmed. This advice helps me to slowly eliminate my stack or at worst, keep it from piling up even more. By keeping this consistency, I am active until I can eliminate it.
Simply put, "Knowledge is power". Then on the flip side of the coin, "Ignorance is bliss", if you don't know what this means, here you go, if you're ignorant of something, say how to use the dictionary, this is easy for you to stay away from, and thus you can remain ignorant of all of the information it contains.
But once you open the dictionary, and start to learn from it, you are less and less ignorant, and are learning how to use the dictionary. Once you have all that information collected, you aren't ignorant of things like you once were, so now there is a whole wealth of information, and you know things aren't so easy out there in the world or universe. There are indeed things out there that require attention, things that need to be done to make things better or easier, problem solving. After learning this, you can then sit back for a second, and wish that you didn't know what you know, because it was easier then, life was blissful.
"two sorts of people have never enough, one who thurst for knowledgle and one who lust after riches." I like this quotation very much and it is a fact, we all are here to gain and give the knowlege and we are all not satisfied wd our present status. We all want more money, am I right?
When you eliminate the impossible, however improbable, whatever remains must be the truth.
I love this quote, because basically it tells you to trust your instincts, if you suspect something no matter how small it is it must be what you fear the most. It's a smarter way of saying if you just trust your own judgement, you won't go wrong.
Thank God for dirty dishes they have a tale to tell while others may go hungry we're eating very well with food and health and happiness I wouldn't want to fuss for by this stack of evidence, God's been good to us.
Not a direct quote-- the reasonable man adapts to the world around him, the unreasonable man forces the world around him to adapt, so all progress for humanity was made by unreasonable man--George Bernard Shaw.
I think life is a continues struggle for happiness and discarding misery and whenever I find myself in difficulty and fail to cope with circumstances, I repeat the following quotation "I will fight against life till success!"
"We have never made an effort to understand what is greatness in men and how to recognize it. We have come to hold, in a kind of mawkish stupor, that greatness is to be gauged by self-sacrifice. Self-sacrifice, we drool, is the ultimate virtue. Let's stop and think for a moment. Is sacrifice a virtue? Can a man sacrifice his integrity? His honor? His freedom? His ideal? His conviction? The honesty of his feelings? The independence of his thought? But these are a man's supreme possessions. Anything he gives up for them is not a sacrifice but an easy bargain. They, however, are above sacrifice to any cause or consideration whatsoever. Should we not, then, stop preaching dangerous and vicious nonsense? Self sacrifice? But it is precisely the self that cannot and must not be sacrificed It is the unsacrified self that we must respect in man above all." Ayn Rand The Fountainhead
They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, Historical Review of Pennsylvania, 1759
"Never frown, you never know when someone is falling in love with your smile" it makes me happy to know that!^^ I like it! I don't know why, but I have ever since I first heard it, and, "It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you're not" it is me.... All the way, I will change for no one!^^
My favourite mantra is "dare to dream".it makes me optimistic and gives me power in my loneliness as I find my dreams as my road shower in dark.when I think that I have a beautiful power of dreaming which many people have not,then I feel a holly strength in my heart which helps me to work.
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed – and hence clamorous to be led to safety – by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. – H.L. Mencken
The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. – Herbert Spencer
When you subsidize poverty and failure, you get more of both. – James Dale Davidson
The welfare state reduces a citizen to a client, subordinates them to a bureaucrat, and subjects them to rules that are anti-work, anti-family, anti-opportunity and anti-property … Humans forced to suffer under such anti-human rules naturally develop pathologies. The evening news is the natural result of the welfare state. – Unknown
I have looked through all the posts and i found some really good ones. I have no idea who said the motto I like, but it is ' everything what is done has its own reason' It is really true. Have you ever thought about 'what if..." and different was it now?
