  • 4. Introduction I love reading quotes and learning from them. Reading quotes, I believe, is a great way to learn about life. Quotes are short but contain a lot wisdom. They can give you useful lessons in a concise way. It doesn’t take much time to read them, but what you read can change your life. I carefully handpicked every quote in this book. I went through thousands of quotes and chose only the best ones to be included here. The quotes I chose are the ones that contain life-changing lessons, not just beautiful play of words. My suggestion is to read these quotes slowly and refer back to them often. Don’t be in a hurry. Take time to absorb the meaning of each quote. When you find something that resonates with you, reflect on how to apply it to your life. These quotes contain the wisdom of the ages. They contain profound lessons that have passed the test of time. Applying them to your life, however, is up to you. 1
  • 5. Action All speech is vain and empty unless it be accompanied by action. Demosthenes The superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions. Confucius To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. Elbert Hubbard Duty is ours, results are God's. John Quincy Adams Do something every day that you don't want to do; this is the golden rule for acquiring the habit of doing your duty without pain. Mark Twain Act as if it were impossible to fail. Dorothea Brande Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still. Chinese Proverb 2
  • 6. What may be done at any time will be done at no time. Scottish Proverb A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Lao Tzu 3
  • 7. Anger When anger rises, think of the consequences. Confucius Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were. Cherie Carter-Scott If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow. Chinese Proverb When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred. Thomas Jefferson Patience is the companion of wisdom. Saint Augustine Patience is the best remedy for every trouble. Titus Maccius Plautus 4
