This is where you will win the battle -- in the playhouse of your mind.
A wise man will make haste to forgive, because he knows the full value of time and will not suffer it to pass away in unnecessary pain.
Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting.
People who are out to find fault seldom find anything else. It is a waste of time, no matter how much you find fault, it is not going to change anything. It's better to find a remedy.
Sometimes I lie awake at night and ask why me? Then a voice answers nothing personal, your name just happened to come up.
He who strikes first, strikes twice.

Many an inherited sorrow that has marred a life has been breathed into no human ear.
