Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
To be upset over what you don't have, is to waste what you do have...

Re: TRUE WISDOM # Great Quotes To Remember
Here are some of my personal favorites.....

==========================================================

-Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

-The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.

-Well done is better than well said.

-After all is said and done, a lot more will have been said than done.

-Small deeds done are better than great deeds planned.

-Nothing diminishes anxiety faster than action.

-All know the way; few actually walk it.

-Ironically, making a statement with words is the least effective method.

-We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts.

-Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.

-All problems become smaller if you don't dodge them but confront them.

-I believe half the unhappiness in life comes from people being afraid to go straight at things.

-If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience.

-Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

-The robbed that smiles, steals something from the thief.

-If you don't like something change it; if you can't change it, change the way you think about it.

-The difficulties of life are intended to make us better, not bitter.

-Damaged people are dangerous. They know they can survive.

-Nothing prevents happiness like the memory of happiness.

-People don't ever seem to relate that doing what's right is no guarantee against misfortune.

-The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

-Men grow tired of sleep, love, singing and dancing sooner than of war.

-To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.

-You never know what you've got until it's gone.

-Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

-The best way to succeed in life is to act on the advice we give to others.

-It is more easy to be wise for others than for ourselves.

-In giving advice seek to help, not to please, your friend.

-For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.

-The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn't angry enough.

-Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.

-Sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

-Temper tantrums, however fun they may be to throw, rarely solve whatever problem is causing them.

-It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

-Never ruin an apology with an excuse.

-Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.

-Every creator painfully experiences the chasm between his inner vision and its ultimate expression.

-An artist never really finishes his work; he merely abandons it.

-Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul - and you answer.

-Hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: that each protects the solitude of the other.

-I owe my solitude to other people.

-Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.

-Never be afraid to sit awhile and think.

-What a commentary on civilization, when being alone is being suspect; when one has to apologize for it, make excuses, hide the fact that one practices it - like a secret vice.

-The happiest of all lives is a busy solitude.

-We visit others as a matter of social obligation. How long has it been since we have visited with ourselves?

-It's so hard when I have to, and so easy when I want to.

-Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

-Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day.

-Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.

-Think big thoughts but relish small pleasures.

-To be upset over what you don't have is to waste what you do have.

-A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.

-The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless and yet be determined to make them otherwise.

-Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.

-Nothing is interesting if you're not interested.

-That which is striking and beautiful is not always good, but that which is good is always beautiful.

-A woman who cannot be ugly is not beautiful.

-Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.

-Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for the truth.

-The most exhausting thing in life is being insincere.

-Originality is... a by-product of sincerity.

-Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

-Be open. And then the truth follows.

-It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not.

-Generally the theories we believe we call facts, and the facts we disbelieve we call theories.

-Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.

-The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart.

-When man invented the bicycle he reached the peak of his attainments. Here was a machine of precision and balance for the convenience of man. And (unlike subsequent inventions for man's convenience) the more he used it, the fitter his body became. Here, for once, was a product of man's brain that was entirely beneficial to those who used it, and of no harm or irritation to others. Progress should have stopped when man invented the bicycle.

-Life is like riding a bicycle - in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.

-It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.

-The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity.

-Bore: A man who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company.

-Some people can stay longer in an hour than others can in a week.

-The most valuable of all talents is that of never using two words when one will do.

-A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts.

-In order to keep a true perspective of one's importance, everyone should have a dog that will worship him and a cat that will ignore him.

-There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat.

-There are two means of refuge from the misery of life - music and cats.

-A catless writer is almost inconceivable. It's a perverse taste, really, since it would be easier to write with a herd of buffalo in the room than even one cat; they make nests in the notes and bite the end of the pen and walk on the typewriter keys.

-Cats can work out mathematically the exact place to sit that will cause most inconvenience.

-One is never sure, watching two cats washing each other, whether it's affection, the taste, or a trial run for the jugular.

-I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.

-There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.

-No heaven will not ever Heaven be
Unless my cats are there to welcome me.

-Way down deep, we're all motivated by the same urges. Cats have the courage to live by them.

-You cannot look at a sleeping cat and feel tense.

-The domestic cat seems to have greater confidence in itself than in anyone else.

-The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion.

-The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen.

-We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

-Just because everything is different doesn't mean anything has changed

-When leaders act contrary to conscience, we must act contrary to leaders.

-You're not supposed to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who says it

-It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.

-Nothing reduces the odds against you like ignoring them.

-If you are going to doubt something, doubt your limits.

-The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do.

-Not all those who wander are lost.

-You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need.

-Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow.

-Courage is being scared to death... and saddling up anyway.

-There are no foolish questions, and no man becomes a fool until he has stopped asking questions.

-Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.

-To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring - these are some of the rewards of the simple life.

-Men for the sake of getting a living forget to live.

-Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.

-People gather bundles of sticks to build bridges they never cross.

-Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

-Worry is a misuse of imagination.

-If you can't sleep, then get up and do something instead of lying there worrying. It's the worry that gets you, not the lack of sleep.

-People gather bundles of sticks to build bridges they never cross.

-People become attached to their burdens sometimes more than the burdens are attached to them.

-You can never worry your way to enlightenment.

-Put your heart, mind, intellect and soul even to your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.

-It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do little - do what you can.
