Learn as though you would never be able to master it; hold it as though you would be in fear of losing it.

Rarely do members of the same family grow up under the same roof.
Our relatives are ours by chance, but we can choose our friends.
All people are your relatives, therefore expect only trouble from them.
Policies are many, Principles are few, Policies will change, Principles never do.
There is no time of life past learning something.
The man who graduates today and stops learning tomorrow is uneducated the day after.
Get over the idea that only children should spend their time in study. Be a student so long as you still have something to learn, and this will mean all your life.
Only as you do know yourself can your brain serve you as a sharp and efficient tool. Know your failings, passions, and prejudices so you can separate them from what you see. Know also when you actually have thought through to the nature of the thing with which you are dealing and when you are not thinking at all.
In addition to self-awareness, imagination and conscience, it is the fourth human endowment-independent will-that really makes effective self-management possible. It is the ability to make decisions and choices and to act in accordance with them. It is the ability to act rather than to be acted upon, to proactively carry out the program we have developed through the other three endowments. Empowerment comes from learning how to use this great endowment in the decisions we make every day.
Human beings are so made that the ones who do the crushing feel nothing; it is the person crushed who feels what is happening. Unless one has placed oneself on the side of the oppressed, to feel with them, one cannot understand.
Social advance depends as much upon the process through which it is secured as upon the result itself.
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
No culture can live if it attempts to be exclusive.
A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.
What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow: Our life is the creation of our mind.
The character ethic, which I believe to be the foundation of success, teaches that there are basic principles of effective living, and that people can only experience true success and enduring happiness as they learn and integrate these principles into their basic character.
Ethics and equity and the principles of justice do not change with the calendar.
Every man's ability may be strengthened or increased by culture.
That is true culture which helps us to work for the social betterment of all.
In the room the women come and go talking of Michelangelo.
I cannot walk through the suburbs in the solitude of the night without thinking that the night pleases us because it suppresses idle details, just as our memory does.
Just as a small fire is extinguished by the storm whereas a large fire is enhanced by it-likewise a weak faith is weakened by predicament and catastrophes whereas a strong faith is strengthened by them.
Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.
Cure yourself of the affliction of caring how you appear to others. Concern yourself only with how you appear before God, concern yourself only with the idea that God may have of you.
Do not wait for extraordinary circumstances to do good action; try to use ordinary situations.
