Always desire to learn something useful.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
Know or listen to those who know.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple the philosophy is kindness.
I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.
Aim at heaven and you will get earth thrown in. Aim at earth and you get neither.
I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there isn't and die to find out there is.
There is no need for temples, no need for complicated philosophies. My brain and my heart are my temples my philosophy is kindness.
Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.
You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.
It is wonderful how much time good people spend fighting the devil. If they would only expend the same amount of energy loving their fellow men, the devil would die in his own tracks of ennui.
I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit.
