The wise devote themselves to the welfare of all, for they see themselves in all.
Let us be silent that we may hear the whispers of the Gods.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (American Philosopher)
The man who works need never be a problem to anyone. Opportunities multiply as they are seized; they die when neglected. Life is a long line of opportunities. Wealth is not in making money, but in making the man while he is making money. Production, not destruction, leads to success.
Leadership has a harder job to do than just choose sides. It must bring sides together.
—Jesse Jackson (American Baptist Civil Rights Activist)
Neither piety, virtue, nor liberty can long flourish in a community where the education of youth is neglected.
Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Hope springs exulting on triumphant wing.
—Robert Burns (Scottish Poet)
Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day. Wisdom consists in not exceeding that limit.
—Elbert Hubbard (American Writer)
The meaning of life is not an unquestionable answer; it is an unanswerable question.
I sit astride life like a bad rider on a horse. I only owe it to the horse’s good nature that I am not thrown off at this very moment.
—Ludwig Wittgenstein (Austrian Philosopher)
Opportunities multiply as they are seized.
—Sun Tzu (Chinese Military Leader)
Wit is educated insolence.
—Aristotle (Ancient Greek Philosopher)
