As a principle-centered person you try to stand apart from the emotion of the situation and from other factors that would act on you, and evaluate the options. Looking at the balanced whole -- the work needs, the family needs, the other needs that may be involved, and the possible implications of the various alternatives -- you'll try to come up with the best solution taking all factors into consideration.
You can not step twice into the same river, for other waters are continually flowing on.
Freedom requires the capacity to accept, bear and live constructively with anxiety. I refer of course to the normal anxiety all of us experience at every step in our psychological growth as well as in this upset contemporary world.

Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
Nature never deceives us, it is we who deceive ourselves.
The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will, and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can't do.

Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer.

My principal business is giving commercial value to the brilliant - but misdirected - ideas of others.
Nothing endures but change. Heraclitus Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Never close your lips to those whom you have opened your heart.
The heart is wiser than the intellect.
When you drop a pebble into a pool of water, the pebble starts a series of ripples that expand until they encompass the whole pool. This is exactly what will happen when I give my ideas a definite plan of action. Right now I can project my thoughts into the future. I can see ahead of me. I dream, I am not easily discouraged, readily visualize myself as overcoming obstacles, winning out over setbacks, achieving impossible objectives.
The greater the obstacle the more glory.

The miracle is this - the more we share, the more we have.
Do it now !
Talent does you no good unless it's recognized by someone else.
Never trouble another for what you can do for yourself.
The way to find out about your happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you really are happy -- not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy ? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what I call 'following your bliss'. If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are -- if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.

With malice toward none, with charity for all.
I scoured many websites, and consulted my friends, my family and our readers for these pearls of wisdom. Now I want to do that again, except this time, I bring to you,

Chief John Ross
Sex alleviates tension. Love causes it.
Because ideas have to be original only with regard to their adaptation to the problem at hand, I am always extremely interested in how others have used used them.
There is something that is much more scarce, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.
