Significant Sayings (Part 3)

Fortune does not change men; it unmasks them.

The godly give good advice to their friends; the wicked leads them astray.

He who believes is strong; he who doubts is weak.

Fear of the Lord teaches a person to be wise; humility precedes honor.

From our ancestors come our names; from our virtues, our honors.

It is human to stand with the crowd; it is divine to stand alone.

Between tomorrow’s dream and yesterday’s regret is today’s opportunity.

No dream comes true until you wake up and go to work.

Doubt grows with knowledge.

Sometimes the best way to convince someone he is wrong is to let him have his way.

He that falls by himself never cries.

What we anticipate seldom occurs; what we least expected generally happens.

The wise man questions himself, the fool others.

The time is always right to do what is right.

It is an easy matter for a stingy to get rich ─ but what’s the use?

Discovery consists of seeing what everybody has seen and thinking what nobody has thought.

Ought is a word of duty.

Won’t is a word of retreat.

It is always the secure who are humble.

No man is rich enough to buy back his past.

The mind’s direction is more important than its progress.

Knowledge can be communicated but not wisdom.
