Wisdom Quotes

"........all the missions in the world ,
all the tasks are performed by good speakers rather then
good writers...."
~ADOLF HITLER


It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.
~Theodore Roosevolt


You can have power over people as long as you don't take everything away from them. But when you've robbed a man of everything, he's no longer in your power.
~Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn


When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
~Audre Lorde


Justice without force is powerless; force without justice is tyrannical.
~Blaise Pascal


Winning may not be everything, but losing has little to recommend it.
~Dianne Feinstein


You can stand tall without standing on someone. You can be a victor without having victims.
~Harriet Woods


You're not obligated to win. You're obligated to keep trying to do the best you can every day.
~Marian Wright Edelman


Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it -- but sail we must and not drift, nor lie at anchor.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes


There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.
~Peter F. Drucker


Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
~Abraham Lincoln


Try not to become a man of success but rather try to become a man of value.
~Albert Einstein


Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.
~Albert Schweitzer

You cannot pluck a thistle,
and turn it to a rose.
You cannot cut its thorny spine,
and dress it up with bows.
