What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?

Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me.
Change is difficult but often essential to survival.
The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.
Nothing is lasting but change; nothing perpetual but death.
To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.
You are everything that is, your thoughts, your life, your dreams come true. You are everything you choose to be. You are as unlimited as the endless universe.
Most men pray for power, the strength to do things. Few people pray for love, the quality to be someone.
Never permit failure to become a habit.
We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.
Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.
Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.
Failure -- The man who can tell others what to do and how to do it, but never does it himself.
Truth is tough. It will not break, like a bubble, at the touch, nay, you may kick it about all day like a football, and it will be round and full at evening.
Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know.
Since Time is not a person we can overtake when he is gone, let us honor him with mirth and cheerfulness of heart while he is passing.
The results you achieve will be in direct proportion to the effort you apply.
Bad times have a scientific value. These are occasions a good learner would not miss.
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.
Happiness is like a kiss. You must share it to enjoy it.
Care is a state in which something does matter; it is the source of human tenderness.
He who has never hoped can never despair.
Security... it's simply the recognition that changes will take place and the knowledge that you're willing to deal with whatever happens.
No man is entitled to the blessings of freedom unless he be vigilant in its preservation.
To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to do.
I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.
He who trims himself to suit everyone will soon whittle himself away.
What makes people happy is activity; changing evil itself into good by power, working in a God like manner.
We must risk going too far to discover just how far we can go.
We gather strength from sadness and from pain Each time we die we learn to live again.
Man could not live if he were entirely impervious to sadness. Many sorrows can be endured only by being embraced, and the pleasure taken in them naturally has a somewhat melancholy character. So, melancholy is morbid only when it occupies too much place in life; but it is equally morbid for it to be wholly excluded from life.
False friendship, like the ivy, decays and ruins the walls it embraces; but true friendship gives new life and animation to the object it supports.
What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.
The worst solitude is to have no real friendships.
Good. There are many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year's course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness.
