“There is no such thing as a great talent without great will power.”
“Be humble in your confidence yet courageous in your character.”
“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
“These are the few ways we can practice humility:
To speak as little as possible of one’s self.
To mind one’s own business.
Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.
To avoid curiosity.
To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.
To pass over the mistakes of others.
To accept insults and injuries.
To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.
To be kind and gentle even under provocation.
Never to stand on one’s dignity.
To choose always the hardest.”
“Knowledge without justice ought to be called cunning rather than wisdom.”
“Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
A man asked Lord Buddha “I Want Happiness”.
Lord Buddha said, “First remove ‘I’, that’s ego. Then remove ‘Want’, that’s desire. See now you are left with only ‘Happiness’.”
The best revenge is massive success.
