*~...words...of..wisdom...~*

i've been coming across so many good quotations recently that i'd like to share.

"as long as one being gets others to bow to him because he has the power to destroy them and all they love, then all of us must be afraid together."

"when you have wisdom that another person knows that he needs, you give it freely. but when the other person doesn't yet know that he needs your wisdom, you keep it to yourself. food only looks good to a hungry man."

"knowledge is just opinion that you trust enough to act upon."

"the only people who ever prize purity of ignorance are those who profit from a monopoly on knowledge."
- han fei-tzu

"Obstacles are those frightful things that appear when you take your mind off your goals." - ummm...don't know who said it

I wish I was a glow worm
cuz a glow worm's never glum
how can you be unhappy
when the sun shine's out yer bum?



- that mind grenades guy

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us to
be careful
be realistic
remember the limitations of being human.

It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,
“Yes.”

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know if you can be alone
with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.

The Invitation - Oriah Mountain Dreamer

As though no one is watching you.

Love
As though you have never been hurt before.

Sing
As though no one can hear you.

Live
As though heaven is on earth.

The Hug

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees;
Inflation proof, nontaxable,
In fact, it’s quite relaxable;
It can’t be stolen, won’t pollute,
One size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy,
But yields results enormously.
Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorate your happiness;
Combats depression, makes you beam,
And elevates your self esteem!
Your circulation it corrects
Without unpleasant side effects
It is, I think, the perfect drug:
May I prescribe, my friend, … the hug!
(and, of course, fully returnable!)


-I kinda like that one.

- Albert Einstein

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.
- Jan L.A. van de Snepscheut

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.
- Oscar Wilde

If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance.
- George Bernard Shaw

The difference between 'involvement' and 'commitment' is like an eggs-and-ham breakfast: the chicken was 'involved' - the pig was 'committed'.
- unknown

I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.
- Thomas Alva Edison

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.
- Will Durant

When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before.

So many good quotes out there!

Although some of the above may not necessarily be "words of wisdom" they are great "words" none the less

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

- E. Hubbard

A banker is a fellow who lends you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins to rain.

- Mark Twain

A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking.

- Arthur Block

A good novel tells us the truth about its hero; but a bad novel tells us the truth about its author.

- G. K. Chesterton

A large brain, like large government, may not be able to do simple things in a simple way.

- Donald O. Hebb

A man is a critic when he cannot be an artist, in the same way that a man becomes an informer when he cannot be a soldier.

- Gustave Flaubert
