May Compilation

I spent the entire month engaged in my studies
Completed my thesis and hung out with my intellectual buddies
I wrote a couple of notes to ease the tension from my stresses
And I thought to compile a few quotes from my famous predecessors

Drink it deep or touch not the Pyrenean springs, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing

- Alexander Pope

Knowledge makes good men better and bad men worse

- Anonymous

Problems cannot be solved with the same level of intelligence that created them

- Albert Einstein

The mark of an immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of a mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one

-William Stekel

I really look with commiseration over the great body of my fellow citizens who, 'reading newspapers', live and die in the belief that they have known something of what has been passing in their times.

- Thomas Jefferson

To avoid all mistake in the conduct of a great enterprise is beyond a man's powers...But, when a mistake has once been made, to use his reverses as lessons for the future is part of a brave and sensible man

- Minicius

Worry is wasting today's time to clutter up tomorrow's opportunity with yesterday's troubles

Every accomplishment great or small starts with a decision

Laziness travels slowly, poverty soon overtakes it

Whenever you fall, pick something up

- Anonymous

A mistake riddled life is more interesting, much more richer and more stimulating than the life that never risks or taken a stand on anything.

Of all the things you where, a smile is the most important one

You'll always have everything you want in life, If you'll help enough other people get what they want

- Zig Zaglar

Utter commotion in the blocks, to make some hay or to sling some rocks. Either way, we must feed our flocks. Time is running out, as the clock tick tocks, to each of mocks!

- El Nnanna

  1. i think my favourite is the one by Thomas Jefferson... its so true... it reminds me of the song "waiting on the world to change"... "when u trust ur television what u get is what u got... cuz when they own the information they can bend it all the want".. i recently was talking about this with a friend but I think William Stekel's quote sums it up nicely.... kudos bra!
