Knowledge talks, wisdom listens.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me !

Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.

Don’t let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart.

Those who criticize our generation forget who raised it. [How true!!]

Criticizing is easy, art is difficult.

Violence won’t solve a thing. It makes it more challenging to solve, though.

I don’t know what the key to success is, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

The mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work unless it’s open.

You only live once, but if you work it right, once is enough.
