Aldous Huxley The ends cannot justify the means for the simple and obvious reason that the means employed determine the nature of the ends produced
Aldous Huxley As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends compensatingly to increase. And the dictator will do well to encourage that freedom.

Aldous Huxley A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude.
Alec Bourne It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.

Anton Chekhov Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice
Aristotle It is not always the same thing to be a good man and a good citizen.
Aristotle I have gained this by philosophy: that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law.
Aristotle What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies.
Aristotle It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
Aristotle Before some audiences not even the possession of the exactest knowledge will make it easy for what we say to produce conviction. For argument based on knowledge implies instruction, and there are people whom one cannot instruct. Here, then, we must use, as our modes of persuasion and argument, notions possessed by everybody, as we observed in the Topics when dealing with the way to handle a popular audience.
Arnold Schwarzenegger The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That's what most people lack, having the guts to go on and just say they'll go through the pain no matter what happens.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength.

Their earthly form might be black, yellow, brown, handsome, ugly, thin, fat, wealthy, poor, intelligent, or ignorant, but we are not to judge by these appearances. Each spirit has the capacity to be filled with love and eternal energy.

Dhammapada 19 Even if he is fond of quoting appropriate texts, the thoughtless man who does not put them into practice himself is like cowherd counting other people's cows, not a partner in the Holy Life.
Dhammapada 20 Even if he does not quote appropriate texts much, if he follows the principles of the Teaching by getting rid of greed, hatred and delusion, deep of insight and with a mind free from attachment, not clinging to anything in this world or the next - that man is a partner in the Holy Life.
Dhammapada 41 Before long this body will be lying on the ground, discarded and unconscious, like a useless bit of wood.
Dhammapada 63 A fool who recognises his own ignorance is thereby in fact a wise man, but a fool who considers himself wise - that is what one really calls a fool.
Dhammapada 65 Even if a man of intelligence lives with a wise man only for a moment, he will immediately recognise the truth, like one's tongue recognises the flavour of the soup.
Dhammapada 66 Stupid fools go through life as their own enemies, doing evil deeds which have bitter consequences.
Dhammapada 77 If a man disciplines, instructs and restrains them from what is not right, he will be dear to the good, and disliked by the bad.

Donald Trump As long as you're going to be thinking anyway, think big.
Donald Trump Everything in life is luck.
Donald Trump Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you're generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don't make.
Donald Trump Part of being a winner is knowing when enough is enough. Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away, and move on to something that's more productive.
Eckhart Tolle To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself into a victim. When you speak out, you are in your power. So change the situation by taking action or by speaking out if necessary or possible; leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness.
Eckhart Tolle Wherever you are, be there totally. If you find your here and now intolerable and it makes you unhappy, you have three options: remove yourself from the situation, change it, or accept it totally. If you want to take responsibility for your life, you must choose one of those three options, and you must choose now. Then accept the consequences.
Eli If You Wait For Results There Won't Be Any
Eric Jordan What is taught in schools has already been done a thousand times over, and it is regurgitated on a daily basis. In order to create something truly unique, you must look within yourself, as that is only where unique ideas can come from. None of us are the same, and so what you create can never be the same as anyone else's.
Eric Jordan Let the world be as it is

Holyoak 1990 If you would like to excel at a profession or a mental skill, plan on adding to your knowledge every day
Howard Storm God wants us to do what we want to do. That means making choices - and there isn't necessarily any right choice. There is a spectrum of possibilities, and we should make the best choice from those possibilities. If we do that, we will receive help from the Other Side.

Jesus - Gospel of Thomas 28 I took my stand in the midst of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found them all drunk, and I did not find any of them thirsty. My soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their hearts and do not see, for they came into the world empty, and they also seek to depart from the world empty. But meanwhile they are drunk. When they shake off their wine, then they will change their ways.

Jim Buckmaster Get something out there. Do it, even if it isn't perfect.
Jim Buckmaster We are not so much anti-capitalist (...) We're fortunate enough to have built a very healthy business, even though we haven't attempted to.

Niels Bohr Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.
Nikola Tesla Today's scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality.
Nikola Tesla The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.
Nikola Tesla My method is different. I do not rush into actual work. When I get a new idea, I start at once building it up in my imagination, and make improvements and operate the device in my mind. When I have gone so far as to embody everything in my invention, every possible improvement I can think of, and when I see no fault anywhere, I put into concrete form the final product of my brain.
Nikola Tesla I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
Nikola Tesla The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.

Plato Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
