Some Thoughts

We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.
What's money? A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.
It's not the hours you put in your work that counts, it's the work you put in the hours.
Natural ability without education has more often attained to glory and virtue than education without natural ability.
Let us watch well our beginnings, and results will manage themselves.
I cannot expect to perform the task with equal ability and success.
What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us
Anything that has real and lasting value is always a gift from within.
History, although sometimes made up of the few acts of the great, is more often shaped by the many acts of the small.
Happiness is different from pleasure. Happiness has something to do with struggling and enduring and accomplishing.
The nice thing about egotists is that they don't talk about other people.
We are born with a brain concealed in a skull that no matter how poor we are, we're still rich, for no one can steal what our brain contains.
We are born to have two ears, one on the left, and one on the right so we can hear both sides, collect both the compliments and criticisms, to understand which are right.
We are born with two eyes in front so that we must not always look behind, but see what lies ahead beyond ourselves.
People need to understand that children with special needs don't have an illness, so there is no cure & it's not contagious. They only want what we all want, to be accepted.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
We should not spend all our time asking why a particular person doesn't like us. Rather, should enjoy happiness that a thousand others do love us.
Don't be ashamed if you don't know something... what's embarrassing is that you cannot do anything... by all means knowledge can be obtained thru learning..
There is no such thing as destruction... you just changed something in a different form...
In prosperity, our friends know us; in adversity, we know our friends.
To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.
The reason why great men meet with so little pity or attachment in adversity, would seem to be this: the friends of a great man were made by his fortune, his enemies by himself, and revenge is a much more punctual paymaster than gratitude.
The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.
Confidence in nonsense is a requirement for the creative process.
A human being must have an occupation, so he or she will not become a nuisance to the world.
