I decided to aggregate my own list of maxims for a rainy day.

If you're going through Hell, keep going.

When you think you've arrived, you haven't.

All is change, the universe never rests.

If ignorance is your bliss, you I will never miss.

Feel more, think less, but don't regress.

Never trade the uncertainty of emotion for the certainty of thought, or you will certainly get caught.

If your heart can translate thought into emotions, your mind should learn the reverse.
 Quoting: Jenia

...
• Anything that keeps your attention is your master.
• Never complain about what you permit.
• Anything permitted increases.
• Struggle is the proof that you have not been
conquered.
• A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
• Don’t be perfect, be creative.
• Conversation with a like-minded individual will heal
the soul.
• A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
• Actions speak louder than words.
• A watched pot never boils.
• An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure.
• Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
• Doubt is the beginning, not the end, of wisdom.
• United we stand, divided we fall.
• Necessity is the mother of invention.
 Quoting: Mr Z

Better to walk alone in the right direction
Then join the crowd and move against your own soul
 Quoting: Sol-tari

Once the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is no longer your friend.

A sgt. in motion outranks a lt. at rest.
...
 Quoting: InterdimensionalShadowMonster

Better late than never

Count your blessings and then, count them again

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

When you are weak appear strong, when you are strong appear weak

Tradition is not the worship of embers but the preservation of fire

Any time you feel like dancing is a perfect moment

Live like you are going to die tomorrow, farm like you are going to live forever

Fake it til you make it

You are always in the palm of God's hand
 Quoting: Eilonwy

... early bird gets the worm ... BUT the second mouse gets the cheese! ...

 Quoting: wisconsin

- Play stupid games, Win stupid prizes

 Quoting: Eilonwy


“Shallow men believe in luck or in circumstance. Strong men believe in cause and effect.”

Health is the purity of an open mind - anger, fear and greed are at the root of all disease.

 Quoting: Jenia

But it seems as if they missed one...

Earthly love - mans love of the Earth, and Earths love of man.

I mean, if you're going to sub-divide love into words and ideas you can't afford to leave out the strongest and most relevant form of it, perhaps the true reason why their civilization collapsed, because unlike Agape, Earthly love is a conditional one, it loves you only to the extent that it needs you.

The following quotes are by Fyodor Dostoevsky, each one a pearl.

"Beauty will save the world."

"I am alone, I thought, and they are everybody."

"I say let the world go to hell, but I should always have my tea."

"Man only likes to count his troubles, he doesn't calculate his happiness."


"Much unhappiness has come into the world because of bewilderment and things left unsaid."

"Nothing in this world is harder than speaking the truth, nothing easier than flattery."

"To love someone is to see them as God intended them."

"I am a fool with a heart but no brains, and you are a food with brains but no heart and we're both unbhappy, and we both suffer."
