The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.
We should not moor a ship with one anchor, or our life with one hope.
It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish? Nothing else.
First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.
When you are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.
Make the best use of what is in your power, and take the rest as it happens.
There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.
Be careful to leave your sons well instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant.
Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.
No greater thing is created suddenly, any more than a bunch of grapes or a fig. If you tell me that you desire a fig, I answer you that there must be time. Let it first blossom, then bear fruit, then ripen.
We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
Men are disturbed not by things, but by the view which they take of them.
If evil be spoken of you and it be true, correct yourself, if it be a lie, laugh at it.
