I do not think much of a man who does not know more today than he did yesterday.
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 cannot live without dying. You cannot live if you do not die psychologically every minute. This is not an intellectual paradox. To live completely, wholly, every day as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is.
If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, the excitement, and the mystery of the world we live in.
If you don't quit, and don't cheat, and don't run home when trouble arrives, you can only win.
A teacher, a really good teacher, is never a giver of truth; he is a guide, a pointer to truth. Therefore, a good teacher, or, more appropriately, a guide, studies each student individually and helps to awaken the student to explore himself, both internally and externally, and ultimately to integrate himself with his being. All in all, a teacher acts as a catalyst, and not only must he have a tremendous understanding; he must also possess a sensitive mind with great flexibility and adaptability.

Where is there dignity unless there is honesty ?
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Spoken about by, radio announcer and good friend : never let a day go by that he didn't learn something new and, in turn pass it on to others. It was his consuming passion.

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.
Charles A. Beard
I have seen too much of the vanity of human affairs, to expect felicity from the splendid scenes of public life.
But because I am mad, I hate you. Because I am mad, I have betrayed you. And because I'm mad, I'm rejoicing in my heart, without a shred of pity, without a shred of regret, watching you go with glory in my heart !
Paula, Gaslight (1940)
Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.

H. H. Vreeland
If thou must love me, let it be for nought, except for love's sake only.

For these things in themselves, beloved, may be changed, or change for thee, and love so wrought, may be unwrought so.

Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.

The best portion of a good man's life, his little, nameless, unremembered acts, of kindness and of love.
