Here is a thread where you can post your words of wisdom.

The Acquisition of power is paramount to all other endeavors: pleasure is a tool of the powerful or a master of a fool.

That is a real good quote. The quote I've lived by is "Mind over mater". However when I was about 9 years old, having gone through all the crap with an abusive control freak of a dad, my mom told me that the wounds would heal over time and I might forgive my dad. To which I replied, "When it comes to what I've been through, you can forgive, but you can never forget".
It blew her, my stepdad, and the rest of my family away. I thought little of it, as my innocence only of being a child dealing with problems that I shouldn't have had to deal with, only made me tell the truth and what I felt, and still feel at the time. Now at my age of 22, my mom still quotes me to family and friends and they are astonished when they hear who's mouth these words came from. And when I think about it, I have forgiven, but have not forgotten.
Another quote I love is,
"Life is an adventure in forgiveness".
Norman Cousins
US editor & essayist (1915 - 1990)

If you posses only street smarts, you're undesirable.
If you posses only book smarts, you're unreliable.
If you posess both, you're undeniable.

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

Traditional rules, supply and demand--they're secondary. But to rise above those rules, to know when to break them, requires absolute personal commitment.

I love people. I love my family, my children . . . but inside myself is a place where I live all alone and that's where you renew your springs that never dry up.
