A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often – just to save it from drying out completely.
When you choose your friends, don’t be short-changed by choosing personality over character.
W. Somerset Maugham
Wishing to be friends is quick work, but friendship is a slow ripening fruit.
Never have a companion that casts you in the shade.
We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.
Dreams pass into the reality of action. From the actions stems the dream again; and this interdependence produces the highest form of living.
Dreams will get you nowhere, a good kick in the pants will take you a long way.
Each man should frame life so that at some future hour fact and his dreaming meet.
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be.
Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.
Never contend with a man who has nothing to lose.
Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong.
Never go to bed angry, stay up and fight.
Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight.
A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom.
A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.
Be happy. It’s one way of being wise.
Sidonie Gabrielle Colette
Better mad with the rest of the world than wise alone.
Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.
John D. Rockefeller
The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
It's always too early to quit.
Norman Vincent Peale
Know or listen to those who know.
Leap, and the net will appear.
