Humility does not mean that you think less of yourself. It means that you think of yourself less. When you are right, you can afford to keep your temper. When you are wrong, you can’t afford to lose it. If we could trace our ancestors back far enough, we would learn that all servants come […]

Habit starts out as a thread. As new threads are added, it becomes a rope we cannot break. Ability is a poor man’s wealth. To teach is to learn twice. Grief often can be fully experienced alone, but to get the full value of joy, one must share it with another. Kind hearts are the […]

Money is the husk of many things, but it is not the kernel. It brings food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; days of joy, but not peace and happiness.

You cannot get rid of a bad temper by losing it. On may lose the good things of this life against his will; but, if he loses the eternal blessings, he does so with his own consent. If you want to make peace, don’t talk with your friends, talk with your enemies. If you look […]

Working Together The power of a waterfall is nothing but a lot of drips working together. Snowflakes are one of nature’s most fragile things, but just look at what they can do when they stick together. The mightiest rivers lost their force when split up into several streams. If everyone swept in front of his […]

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten. We are not at our best when perched upon the summit; we are climbers, at our best when the way is steep. One of the nice things about many of our problems is that most of them do not […]

People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing; that’s why we recommend it daily. Why is it that those with something to say have trouble saying it, while those who have nothing to say at all can’t stop saying it constantly? One of the greatest mistakes one can make is to do nothing because […]

He who rolls up his sleeves seldom loses his shirt. No one can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can begin today and make a new ending. Those who pretend to be more than they are raise an expectation they can’t fulfill and so lose their credibility as soon as they are […]
