Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
A man who is a master of patience is master of everything else.
He who fears being conquered is sure of defeat.
Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted.
Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.
If you don’t know what you want, you end up with a lot you don’t.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
Life is hard. Then you die. Then they throw dirt in your face. Then the worms eat you. Be grateful it happens in that order.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
Pride is not the opposite of shame, but it’s source. True humility is the only antidote to shame.
