Actions, they say, speak louder than words. That is quite true as far as judging people by what they do rather than by what they say, is concerned. But the power of words can’t be over-emphasized. Words can save lives, erase doubts, and alter perspectives. Here are some words of wisdom to live by.
“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
“It is possible to store the mind with a million facts & still be entirely uneducated”
- Alec Bourne
“I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it...”
- Harper Lee
“If you are depressed, you are living in the past.
If you are anxious, you are living in the future.
If you are at peace, you are living in the present.”
- Lao Tzu
“The pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
“We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out.”
An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.
- Bill Bernbach
