So I was playing on the internet and came across a website: Handbook of wisdom for those in transtion

It just has a alot of quotes from different people and there were some that I liked so I thought I would put the in a post and share them.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Draw from others the lesson that may profit yourself.

We cannot live other people's lives or bear their burdens, no matter how much we love them.

Dependency is slavery by mutual agreement, It is degrading for both the person who is dependent and the person who is being depended upon. Both parties are equally lacking in self-reliance for such a relationship flourishes on mutual exploitation.

Once a person believes that something is true, whether or not it is, he then acts as if it were. He will instinctively seek to collect facts to support the belief no matter how false it may be.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of ones ignorance.

Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.

I never think of the future. It comes soon enough.

I want to know God's thoughts ... the rest are details.

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted

A "No" uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a "Yes" merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.

My imperfections and failures are as much a blessing from God as my successes and my talents, and I lay them both at his feet.

When you have to make a choice and don't make it, that in itself is a choice.

Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes

The harder you work, the harder it is for you to surrender.

Nothing on earth consumes a man more quickly than the passion of resentment.

You are greater than anything that can happen to you.

Don't let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Friendship with oneself is all-important, because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else in the world.

What I can do is what I can do, and what I can do is enough.

A bad habit never goes away by itself. It's always an undo-it-yourself project.

It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not.

Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

Never let what you cannot do interfer with what you can do.

In your hands you hold the seeds of failure - or the potential for greatness.

The most practical, beautiful, workable philosophy in the world won't work - if you won't.
