- If I supply you a thought you may remember it and you may not. But if I can make you think a thought for yourself, I have indeed added to your stature.
- This will never be a civilised country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum.
- A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.
- Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.
- Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.
- War is the sure result of the existence of armed men. That country which maintains a large standing army will sooner or later have a war.
- He who influences the thought of his times influences all the times that follow. He has made his impress on eternity.
- He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.
- Self-discipline is the ability to make yourself do what you should do, when you should do it, whether you feel like it or not.
- The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today.
