To be beneficent when we can is a duty; and besides this, there are many minds so sympathetically constituted that, without any other motive of vanity or self-interest, they find a pleasure in spreading joy around them, and can take delight in the satisfaction of others so far as it is their own work. But I maintain that in such a case an action of this kind, however proper, however amiable it may be, has nevertheless no true moral worth, but is on a level with other inclinations. ... For the maxim lacks the moral import, namely, that such actions be done from duty, not from inclination.

To be, or not to be that is the question Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, Or to take arms against a sea of troubles, And by opposing end them To die to sleep No more and by a sleep to say we end The heartache and the thousand natural shocks That flesh is heir to,--'t is a consummation Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep To sleep perchance to dream ay, there's the rub For in that sleep of death what dreams may come, When we have shuffled off this mortal coil, Must give us pause there's the respect That makes calamity of so long life For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely, The pangs of despised love, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the spurns That patient merit of the unworthy takes, When he himself might his quietus make With a bare bodkin who would fardels bear, To grunt and sweat under a weary life, But that the dread of something after death, The undiscover'd country from whose bourn No traveller returns, puzzles the will And makes us rather bear those ills we have Than fly to others that we know not of Thus conscience does make cowards of us all And thus the native hue of resolution Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought, And enterprises of great pith and moment With this regard their currents turn awry, And lose the name of action.

The tangible and the functional expand, while the intangible and the beautiful shrink. Left to wither is the national purpose, national educational needs, literature and theater, and our critical faculties. The national dialogue is gradually being lost in a froth of misleading self-congratulation and cliche. National needs and interests are slowly being submerged by the national preoccupation with the irrelevant.

To reprehend well is the most necessary and the hardest part of friendship. Who is it that does not sometimes merit a check, and yet how few will endure one? Yet wherein can a friend more unfold his love than in preventing dangers before their birth, or in bringing a man to safety who is travelling on the road to ruin? I grant there is a manner of reprehending which turns a benefit into an injury, and then it both strengthens error and wounds the giver. When thou chidest thy wandering friend do it secretly, in season, in love, not in the ear of a popular convention, for oftentimes the presence of a multitude makes a man take up an unjust defence, rather than fall into a just shame.

It is conceivable that a syndicate of Fords, if we could find them, would make Belgium Ltd. or Denmark Inc. pay their way.

If Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he has predicted six more weeks of winter-like weather. If Phil does not see his shadow, he has predicted an “early spring."

todos sabemos que la vida en el mundo real es inherentemente riesgoso. aquellos que no están dispuestos a asumir los riesgos siempre se conforman con lo ordinario, y también la vida les premia con lo que se conforman con - lo común. por otro lado, aquellos que toman los riesgos, y saltar de los acantilados, encontramos que construyen sus alas en el camino hacia abajo. vida premia a estos arriesgados y acantilados y sudaderas con éxito que está más allá de toda medida - el extraordinario. por eso, en mi opinión, la diferencia entre una persona de éxito y un fracaso no es uno que tienen mejores ideas o mejores habilidades, pero el coraje de una muestra mediante la adopción de un riesgo de tomar un riesgo y ganar. la historia recuerda estos tomadores de riesgos y sus extraordinarios logros, y se olvida de los no cumplidores aprensivos. Nunca tengas miedo de tomar los riesgos, y de sumergirse en los océanos desconocidos. después de todo, las perlas no se encuentran en la orilla del mar, y hay que bucear para que en lo profundo del océano si quieres uno. seguir adelante, dar un salto en la incertidumbre, y verás tus alas abrir en su camino hacia abajo. es posible que vea una red que aparece también, pero hay que dar ese salto primero.

Tolerance is prerogative of humanity. In my view, when we think that ours is the only true path to righteousness, we inadvertently force ourselves to judging others with our own yardstick, and walking in the territory of arrogance. Interestingly, the roads that lead to righteousness and arrogance though seem to run in parallel, may intersect each other at several points in our lives. We cannot differentiate between these two roads easily, unless we understand that the road to righteousness is paved with the love of humanity, while the road to arrogance is paved with the love of self. Being tolerant to various beliefs, colors, cultures, races, genders, sexual orientations, and ethnicities etc has become extremely important in the world filled with discrimination, prejudice, and supremacy etc. As the French Philosopher Voltaire said it correctly "La tolérance, c'est l'apanage de l'humanité" - i.e. Tolerance is prerogative of humanity. We believe that Tolerance will surely make our world a better place.

Total loyalty is possible only when fidelity is emptied of all concrete content, from which changes of mind might naturally arise.

Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable, much more so than we allow ourselves to imagine. A beach not only permits such inertia but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does.

Total self-esteem requires total and unconditional acceptance of yourself. You are a unique and worthy individual, regardless of your mistakes, defeats and failures, despite what others may think, say or feel about you or your behavior. If you truly accept and love yourself, you won't have a driving need for attention and approval. Self-esteem is a genuine love of self. Stop all adverse value judging of yourself. Stop accepting the adverse value judgments of others. Purge yourself of all condemnation, shame, blame, guilt & remorse.

Totalitarianism is never content to rule by external means, namely, through the state and a machinery of violence; thanks to its peculiar ideology and the role assigned to it in this apparatus of coercion, totalitarianism has discovered a means of dominating and terrorizing human beings from within.

Tough girls come from New York. Sweet girls, they're from Georgia. But us Kentucky girls, we have fire and ice in our blood.

Tout faire dans la vie avec passion. Artistes incroyables, invent euros brillants et merveilleux écrivains atteignent les plus hauts niveaux dans leurs champs à cause de leur passion. Sans passion, la vie est comme un coquillage vide et creuse couché dans le sable. Ce est la passion qui apporte la vie dans tout ce que vous faites dans la vie. Merci beeaucoup!

Toute personne qui a atteint l'immortalité ne est jamais peur de mourir un jour. Oui! parce que sa renommée et l'héritage vont sûrement lui survivre. Je ai atteint l'immortalité partout sur l'internet via ma pensée-citations de provocation, les motivations et inspirations. Oh! oui, mes citations et des mots qui suscitent la réflexion de sagesse vont sûrement et finalement survivre moi ou plutôt vivre après ma mort. Et devinez quoi? Je suis encore pour atteindre plus de lui (l'immortalité) même au-delà de la mise internet à travers mes livres à venir, mon écriture et cadeau parler et potentiel.

toutes les fois que nous entendons «l'amour est aveugle." mais ce n'est pas vrai. aveugle est l'engouement, tandis que l'amour voit tout et tout accepter aspect étonnant de la vie. l'amour est fort et permanent engouement vis-à-vis qui est fragile et éphémère. à mon avis, l'amour est comme de la soie, qui est délicat, doux, éclairage et doux - et pourtant si forte qu'aucune force au monde ne peut le déchirer facilement. l'amour est d'accepter l'autre pour de bonnes qualités ainsi que des défauts, et de forces autant que les faiblesses. l'amour est de travailler ensemble à travers les défis de la vie, et surmonter les obstacles avec synergie. Je voudrais résumer l'amour dans trois T: la confiance, la transparence et le travail d'équipe.
