Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
To be a good loser is to learn how to win.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Always desire to learn something useful.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Only the educated are free.
A man who won't die for something is not fit to live.
To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
The fear of death is the most unjustified of all fears, for there's no risk of accident for someone who's dead.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.
While I thought that I was learning how to live, I have been learning how to die.
