The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
If you’re trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I’ve had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Ignorant men raise questions that wise men answered a thousand years ago.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
George S. Patton
Nine-tenths of wisdom is being wise in time.
