Before you can break out of prison,
you must first realize you’re locked up.

What you are afraid to do is a clear indicator of the next thing you need to do.

If you stick your head in the sand, one thing is for sure:
you’ll get your rear kicked.

You are the only teacher you will ever have.

There are three kinds of people:
Those who make things happen,
Those who watch things happen,
and Those who don’t know what on earth is happening!

You get treated in life the way you train people to treat you.

If you don’t make a choice, someone else will choose for you.

One hundred years from now, no one will care!

Anger is one letter short of danger.

Live as though it were your last day on earth.
Someday you will be right!

The best way to predict your future is to create it.

You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.
—John Wooden.

It is better to light one candle than curse the darkness.

All the things I really like to do are either immoral, illegal, fattening, or too expensive.

Never Explain — your Friends do not need it, and your Enemies will not believe you anyway.
—Elbert Hubbard.

The ability to speak several languages is an asset,
but the ability to keep your mouth shut in one language is priceless.

The surest sign of growing old is when you begin to regret the sins you did not commit.

When you grow older, you don’t grow wiser;
you merely learn to hide your ignorance better.
