“All people know the same truth. Our lives consist of how we chose to distort it.”

Edmund Burke

“Manners, are of more importance than law. . . The law touches us but here and there and now and then. Manners are what vex or soothe, corrupt or purify, exalt or debase, barbarize or refine us, by a constant, steady, uniform and insensible operation like that of the air we breathe in.”

Abraham Lincoln

“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“Man’s most enduring stupidity is forgetting what he is trying to do.”

Ian L. Fleming

“I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.”

Nelson Mandela

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

Niccolò Machiavelli

“It must be remembered there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than the creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institutions and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new ones.”

Bill Murray

“It’s hard to win an argument with a smart person, but it’s damn near impossible to win an argument with a stupid person.”

Harry S. Truman

“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”
