quotes
1 the purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
2 great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
3 no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
4 one thing life has taught me: if you are interested, you never have to look for new interests. they come to you. when you are genuinely interested in one thing, it will always lead to something else.
5 learn from the mistakes of others. you can’t live long enough to make them all yourself.
6 justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both.
7 it is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself.
8 if someone betrays you once, it’s their fault; if they betray you twice, it’s your fault.
9 do one thing every day that scares you.
10 a woman is like a tea bag- you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water.
