Ever known anyone to quote themselves? Here are ten of my own sayings.
- If you treat knowledge in your brain like a marriage of convenience, then you are a fool, and fools and facts are quickly parted.
- The biggest disability in the world isn't a lack of limbs, senses or mental ability. It's a lack of empathy for your neighbour.
- Every day ask yourself three questions:
"Did I do good for myself today?"
"Did I do good for someone else today?"
"Did I do good for our world today?"
If you answered yes to:
3 out of 1 = poor
2 out of 3 = good
3 out of 3 = 2 out of 3 is good enough
- History is written by wars, not friendships, so that any "accepted" version of history is always written from the winner's point of view - or whoever can write in English the best.
- War is just a word - like love, anger and commitment....what is so true is that our lives are commanded by such words.
- If constant recalling of the past makes me ignore the future, then I'm ultimately depriving myself. If I had to choose between fighting for what happened or what should happen, I know which I'd pick.
- Do not fear what you do not know, welcome new races and continually look to better yourself - a philosophy that is more relevant today then ever before.
- Beauty isn't arrogant, the most beautiful people are the ones who don't know it.
- Provide for your need, not your greed.*
- If you keep your head in the clouds, your brain will get waterlogged.
* I was driving past a church sign one day in England that read: "God provides for everyone's need, not everyone's greed." It stuck in my mind and during one conversation with a friend, I said the above.
