Thoughts for the Day

I keep six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who
~ Rudyard Kipling

Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket but into your own.

Good days give you happiness; bad days give you experience. Both are essential to life.

Have the determination of a mirror, which never loses its ability to reflect, in spite of it being broken to pieces.

We have a tendency to exalt ourselves and to dwell on the weaknesses and mistakes of others. ~ Jimmy Carter

In most cases, strengths and weaknesses are two sides of the same coin. A strength in one situation is a weakness in another, yet often the person can't switch gears. It's a very subtle thing to talk about strengths and weaknesses because almost always they're the same thing. ~ Steve Jobs

A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. ~ Oscar Wilde

When you have decided that a thing ought to be done, and are doing it, never shun being seen doing it, even though the multitude should be likely to judge the matter amiss. For if you are not acting rightly, shun the act itself; if rightly, however, why fear misplaced censure? ~ Epictetus
