“ It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err. ”
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
It is not necessary to go through every kind of human experience in order to attain the ultimate wisdom. You should be able to learn by studying the lives of others.
Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.
Don't ever mistake my silence for ignorance, my calmness for acceptance or my kindness for weakness. Compassion and tolerance are not a sign of weakness, but a sign of strength.
