Unless you are prepared yourself to profit by your chance, the opportunity will only make you ridiculous. A great occasion is valuable to you in proportion as you have educated yourself to make use of it.
We are a spectacular, splendid manifestation of life. We have language. . . . We have affection We have genes for usefulness, and usefulness is about as close to a 'common goal' of nature as I can guess at. And finally, and perhaps best of all, we have music.
We are dealing with the best-educated generation in history. But they've got a brain dressed up with nowhere to go.
We are educated in the grossest ignorance, and no art omitted to stifle our natural reason; if some few get above their nurses instructions, our knowledge must rest concealed and be as useless to the world as gold in the mine.
We have entered an age in which education is not just a luxury permitting some men an advantage over others. It has become a necessity without which a person is defenseless in this complex, industrialized society. ... We have truly entered the century of the educated man.
We must not believe the many, who say that only free people ought to be educated, but we should rather believe the philosophers who say that only the educated are free.
Weather is a great bluffer. I guess the same is true of our human society -- things can look dark, then a break shows in the clouds, and all is changed.
Well, spring sprang. We've had our state of grace and our little gift of sanctioned madness, courtesy of Mother Nature. Thanks, Gaia. Much obliged. I guess it's time to get back to that daily routine of living we like to call normal.
When this girl at the museum asked me who I liked better, Monet or Manet, I said, 'I like mayonnaise.' She just stared at me, so I said it again, louder. Then she left. I guess she went to try to find some mayonnaise for me.
Where I have been before now and where I am presently is/will be nothing to be compared to where God is gradually taking me to. Guess what? I'm not skeptical about that. For, I'm a potential success. Oh! Yes, I have what it takes to emerge a success story and I will surely/eventually become a big time success story.
Whoever has the courage/passion to begin anything definitely will have the courage/passion to succeed. Yes, everything begins one day, be it a dream, a vision, or aspiration. But guess what drives them all? Nothing but courage/passion. Besides, that's the spirit of winners/champions. Anyway, are you courageous/passionate or not?
Whoever put Christmas (sorry..Doug would never spell it like that...come ON)"Whoever put Xmas in the middle of Hunting Season oughta be crucified."He stated while opening a can of Miller Lite on the way home from (can you guess?) --> duck Hunting.
Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.
You are just a mortal i.e. you are subject to death. But guess what? You can achieve immortality i.e. you can live perpetually even after your demise just by succeeding in achieving an enduring fame via living for others now that you're still alive. Yes of course, you can achieve immortality. For, many mortals like you have already achieved immortality, just because they lived for others throughout their lifetimes e.g. Zig Ziglar/William Shakespeare/Chinua Achebe/Nelson Mandela/Mother Theresa/Martin Luther King Jnr./Mahatma Gandhi/Andrew Carnegie among others.

Your beginning in life doesn't really matter. Yes, rather the bottom line is how and where you will end up. For, surely there is an end to every human/matter. And guess what? The end of every human or matter is better off than the beginning (Ecclesiates 7 : 8). Now, that's why, I'm more concerned with what and how my end will be/become. And you too ought to be more concerned with what will be your end rather than your beginning. Lest you forget. The end justifies the means . And I strongly do believe in that in toto.
