IT’S A MATTER OF RESPECT
I have great respect for the past. If you don’t know where you’ve come from, you don’t know where you’re going. I have respect for the past, but I’m a person of the moment. I’m here, and I do my best to be completely centered at the place I’m at, then I go forward to the next place.
CHARACTER AND REPUTATION
Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
HOW TO TURN A LIFE AROUND
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
STANDING UP FOR SOMETHING
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him.
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.
Never ascribe to malice that which is adequately explained by incompetence.
