The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others.
Solomon Ibn Gabriol
Ask yourself this question:
“Will this matter a year from now?”
Richard Carlson, writing in Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff
There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.
Shut out all of your past except that which will help you weather your tomorrows.
It is not work that kills men, it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more on a man than he can bear. But worry is rust upon the blade. It is not movement that destroys the machinery, but friction.
Henry Ward Beecher
