~MOo0re wise th0ughts~

-Gerald W. Kelley, math teacher, Harrison (Ark.) High School-
Opportunity + Ability = Responsibility

There is nothing noble about being superior to some other man.
The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.
-Hindu proverb-

~If two people agree on everything,
only one person is doing the thinking.

~If you can't have what you want,
change your mind.

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean;
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty,
the ocean itself does not become dirty.
-Mohandas Gandhi-

~Love makes burdens lighter, because you divide them.
It makes joys more intense, because you share them.

~The happiest people are those who are
too busy to wonder whether they are or not.

~People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.

~Happiness is only found by those who are
striving to make others happy.

~All the flowers
of all the tomorrows
are in the seeds of today.

~Optimism is man's passport to a better tomorrow.

Four things do not come back:
the Spoken Word,
the Sped Arrow,
the Past Life,
and the Neglected Opportunity.
-Arabian proverb-

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.
-Franz Kafka-

One must have a dream if one
is to have a dream come true.
-musical "South Pacific"-

~A man can go to Hell a thousand different ways . . .
but he can only go to Heaven just one way.

~The only person who got all his work
done by Friday was Robinson Crusoe.

~You have to pay twice for cigarettes --
once when you get them,
and again when they get you.

~Good judgment comes from experience and, unfortunately,
experience often comes from bad judgment.

~Life is full of surprises.
Don't insist on everything being predictable.

~Anyone can count the seeds in an apple,
but only God can count the apples in a seed.

~Don't do anything that one day you will want to forget.
God can forgive you, but He can't make you forget.

~Understand what the will of the Lord is.
People will forget what you said.
People will forget what you did.
But people will never forget how you made them feel.

~The seven states of man:

~If your partner dumps you, that is absolute proof they were not the one no matter how attached you feel, no matter how much you believe you could never love another, no matter how great it used to be, no matter if the heartbreak is the worst pain you ever felt.

~Do it now! Nearly all the great mathematicians and physicists did their best work in their twenties. If you have grand dreams, realise them now. You may well not have the energy later. Time seems to stretch endlessly ahead of you, but your life is over in an eyeblink.

~Understating your case is more persuasive than overstating it. You supply the facts. Let others supply the emotion. If you supply the emotion, others will take no action, believing you must have already handled the problem.

~If it sounds to good to be true, it nearly always is. Don’t waste time looking for zero-effort ways to do things. You just set yourself up to be conned. Find out what methods the people who actually succeeded have used.

~Think globally; act locally. Saving the world is a huge job. Yours is just a small part. However, it is a necessary part.

~The things you worry most about almost never happen. If you don’t believe me, start tracking them.

~If you are not making any progress on your big dreams, the very bigness of the dreams may be paralysing you. Think instead, "What could I do today that would marginally improve my lot." Focus not so much on where you want to go, but where you could go immediately from here.

-Lao Tsu, "Tao Te Ching"-
The world is sacred. You cannot improve it.
If you try to change it, you will ruin it.
If you try to hold it, you will lose it.

We do not own the earth, we are borrowing it from our children
- Amerind proverb-

The nice thing about egotists is that they don't talk about other people.

If women didn't exist, all the money in the world would have no meaning.
- Aristotle Onassis (1906-1975)-

Happiness is good health and a bad memory.
- Ingrid Bergman (1917-1982)-

Silence is argument carried out by other means.
- Ernesto"Che"Guevara (1928-1967)-

The universe appears to me like an immense, inexorable torture-garden... Passions, greed, hatred, and lies; law, social institutions, justice, love, glory, heroism, and religion: these are its monstrous flowers and its hideous instruments of eternal human suffering. -Octave Mirbeau (1850-1917)-

In default of inexhaustible happiness, eternal suffering would at least give us a destiny. But we do not even have that consolation, and our worst agonies come to an end one day.
-Albert Camus (1913-60)-

Rock and roll is the Esperanto of the Global Village

Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing.
- Wernher Von Braun (1912-1977)-

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
- Albert Einstein (1879-1955)-

In Germany they first came for the Communists, and I didn't speak because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak because I wasn't a trade unionist... Then they came for me--and by that time no one was left to speak up.

~He who knows not, and knows not that he knows not,
is a fool, shun him.

is asleep, wake him.
He who knows, and knows that he knows,
is a wise man, follow him.

Judgement is swift; the punishment harsh.
