Words I read frequently to try to live better

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Dr. Seuss

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great Mark Twain

An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. - Robert A. Heinlein

You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself. - Harry Firestone

Don't worry about people stealing your ideas. If your ideas are any good, you'll have to ram them down people's throats.- Howard Aiken

Everybody wants to be somebody; nobody wants to grow.- Johann von Goethe

Nagging is the repetition of unpalatable truths. -Baroness Edith Summerskill-

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning. -Catherine Aird

An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.- Buddha

True friends stab you in the front. - Oscar Wilde

Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.- Calvin Coolidge
