Our expression and our words never coincide, which is why the animals don't understand us.

James Russell Lowell

Folks never understand the folks they hate.

Set priorities for your goals. A major part of successful living lies in the ability to put first things first. Indeed, the reason most major goals are not achieved is that we spend our time doing second things first.

Earl Nightingale

People are where they are because that is exactly where they really want to be -- whether they will admit that or not.

Henry Ford

When I can't handle events, I let them handle themselves.

Henry David Thoreau

Most men would feel insulted if it were proposed to employ them in throwing stones over a wall, and then in throwing them back, merely that they might earn their wages. But many are no more worthily employed now.

People who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish.

It is a barren kind of criticism which tells you what a thing is not.
