General Thoughts-1

Small worries are worst when we are idle and are often dispersed by motion like a flock of gnats.
--Charles Horton Cooley

When the heart dares to speak it needs no preparations.

Its no use complaining of boredom when you don't do anything about it.
--Godfrey Winn

If we treat people too long with that pretended liking is called politeness

One may go wrong in many different ways, but right only in one, which is why it is easy to fail and difficult to succeed - easy to miss the target and difficult to hit it.

Better to write of laughter than of tears. Because to laugh is proper to the man.

Some people fall for everything and stand for nothing.

Failure is instructive. The person who really thinks, learns quite as much from his failures as from his successes.
--John Dewey

Never break four things in life - Trust, Promise, Relation and Heart. These break without noise, but pain a lot

Thoughts lead on to purposes; purposes go forth in action; actions form habits; habits decide character; and character fixes our destiny."
--Tyron Edwards

Humblest we must be, if to heaven we go,
High is the roof there, but the gate is low;
Whenever thou speak'st, look with a lowly eye
Grace is increased by humility.
--Robert Herric

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high,
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary sound of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever widening thought and action--
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
--Rabindra Nath Tagore, "Suffering and Hope"

England has two books, the Bible and the Shakespeare. England made Shakespeare, but the Bible made England.
--Victor Hugo
You have to discuss it with somebody or read yourself because it relates to England's history and the explanation is long.

The Cross is "I" crossed out.

Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.
--Elbert Hubbard

"Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal."
--Arthur Schopennauer

Nothing can be worse than that moment during an argument, when you realize that you're wrong.

Pompous fools drive me up the wall. Ordinary fools are alright; you can talk to them and try to help them out. But pompous fools who are fools and are covering it all over and impressing people as to how wonderful they are with all this hocus-pocus THAT I CANNOT STAND! An ordinary fool is not a faker. An honest fool is alright. But a dishonest fool is terrible!
--Richard P Feynman (1918-1988) Professor of theoretical physics.
(In: "Surely, you are joking, Mr. Feynman!" WW Norton and Co, NY, 1985, page 284)

There are two kinds of fool - One says, "This is old, and therefore good." And one says, "This is new, and therefore better."
John Brunner, Science fiction writer (1934-1995)
