And Then Some

The future holds a key to your past. The less your future will suck, the more likely you are to safely and surely lock the past where it belongs, behind you. If in the future there is a lot of misery too, it will be like that and you will not be able to let go of your past.

The important thing about science is, it does start with an assumption, but it battles it's own assumptions and tries to disprove them. The thing with religion is, it also starts with assumptions, but does not allow any kind of question about the assumptions. That is the big difference.

Just like you can't tell the denomination of a currency note just by feeling it, you can't tell the worth of anything just by feeling it.

You don't love till you may, you love till you can.

We break our own hearts.

How much people find something to be something defines to what extent said something is something. For example how much people find something to be funny defines how funny it is.

Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.

The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.

When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.

The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.

Death doesn't kill a proud person; his pride does.

Being loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

You cannot help someone who doesn't want help and it's people who most need help that don't get helped because they don't recognise it and so reject any motion to help and are unreasonable about it. The first step unfortunately to fixing a problem is recognising you have that problem. So meanwhile you are dealing with such a person all you can do is ignore them as much as you can. The best reaction is no reaction. And you do more harm and it's very counterproductive if you do react because that could lead to you losing your patience and doing something you will regret.
