Between saying and doing, many a pair of shoes is worn out.
What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens.
Let us be grateful to the mirror for revealing to us our appearance only.
After all, we make ourselves according to the ideas we have of our possibilities.
V. S. Naipaul
Creation things acquired an evil complexion if phrased, but remained harmless in the mind.
To be able to laugh and to be merciful are the only things that make man better than the beast.
