To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards of men.

Fear less, hope more; eat less, chew more; whine less breathe more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more; and all good things are yours.
If you always do what interests you, at least one person is pleased.
The closed mind, if closed long enough, can be opened by nothing short of dynamite.
It's not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.
How things look on the outside of us depends on how things are on the inside of us.
I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.
Kindness and intelligence don't always deliver us from the pitfalls and traps: there are always failures of love, of will, of imagination. There is no way to take the danger out of human relationships.
The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.
I didn't find my friends; the good Lord gave them to me.
It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.
One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others.
If we want to be loved, we must disclose ourselves. If we want to love someone, he must permit us to know him. This would seem to be obvious. Yet most of us spend a great part of our lives thinking up ways to avoid becoming known. Indeed, much of human life is best described as impersonation. We are role players, every one of us. We say that we feel things we do not feel. We say things we did not do. We say that we believe things we do not believe. We pretend that we are loving when we are full of hostility. We pretend that we are calm and indifferent when we are actually trembling with anxiety and fear. Of course we cannot tell even the people we know and love everything we think or feel. But our mistakes are nearly always in the other direction. Even in families -- good families -- people wear masks a great deal of the time.
Two may talk together under the same roof for many years, yet never really meet; and two others at first speech are old friends.
It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, bit it is the little differences that make them interesting.
The quality of your life is the quality of your relationships.
The ultimate test of a relationship is to disagree but to hold hands.
If we are a metaphor of the universe, the human couple is the metaphor par excellence, the point of intersection of all forces and the seed of all forms. The couple is time recaptured, the return to the time before time.
You will always move toward anyone who increases you and away from anyone who makes you less.
We are never more discontented with others than when we are discontented with ourselves.
Some of the biggest challenges in relationships come from the fact that most people enter a relationship in order to get something: they're trying to find someone who's going to make them feel good. In reality, the only way a relationship will last is if you see your relationship as a place that you go to give, and not a place that you go to take.
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
If A equals success, then the formula is A equals X plus Y and Z, with X being work, Y play, and Z keeping your mouth shut.
I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism have brought me to my ideas.
A relationship, I think, is like a shark, you know? It has to constantly move forward or it dies. And I think what we got on our hands is a dead shark.
Constant togetherness is fine -- but only for Siamese twins.
The drama of life begins with a wail and ends with a sigh.
The less routine the more life.
I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I have just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.
I can elect to change all thoughts that hurt.
We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
The need for change bulldozed road down the center of my mind.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
The energy of the mind is the essence of life.
When we speak the word life, it must be understood we are not referring to life as we know it from its surface of fact, but to that fragile, fluctuating center which forms never reach.
For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. [James 4:14]
Life is raw material. We are artisans. We can sculpt our existence into something beautiful, or debase it into ugliness. It's in our hands.
Life is not lost by dying; life is lost minute by minute, day by dragging day, in all the thousand small uncaring ways.
You have to do what you love to do, not get stuck in that comfort zone of a regular job. Life is not a dress rehearsal. This is it.
The art of living lies not in eliminating but in growing with troubles.
Life marches by, I suggest you get on with it.
You don't get to choose how you're going to die, or when. You can decide how you're going to live now.
Your life is what your thoughts make it.
Don't worry about your life; what you shall eat, or drink, or the clothing for your body. [Matthew 6:31]
