A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.
Just as treasures are uncovered from the earth, so virtue appears from good deeds, and wisdom appears from a pure and peaceful mind. To walk safely through the maze of human life, one needs the light of wisdom and the guidance of virtue.
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
Work like you don't need the money. Love like you've never been hurt. Dance like nobody's watching.
The way you see people is the way you treat them, and the way you treat them is what they become.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
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.
We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
