Beauty is truth’s smile when she beholds her own face in a perfect mirror.

If you have nothing else to do, look at yourself and see if there isn’t something close at hand that you can improve. It may make you wealthy, although it is more likely it will make you happy.
—George Madison Adams (American Politician)
I’d rather have a lot of talent and a little experience than a lot of experience and a little talent.
—John Wooden (American Sportsperson)
Wisdom is the supreme part of happiness.
—Sophocles (Ancient Greek Dramatist)

Every dawn signs a new contract with existence.
—Henri Frederic Amiel (Swiss Philosopher)
The company of the distinguished, fetches respect even to the unworthy. Because of its association with flowers (in a garland), the thread is also worn on head.
It may be possible to forcibly snatch a jewel from the midst of powerful jaws of a crocodile. It may also be possible to cross a raging sea swimming across its high-running violent waves. One may even wear a furious snake around his head as if it is a garland of flowers. But it is impossible to win over a conceited fool.
