An optimist is one who makes the best of it when he
gets the worst of it.
An optimist sees an opportunity in every calamity; a
pessimist sees calamity in every opportunity.
Arise, ye prisoners of starvation,
Arise, ye wretched of the earth,
For justice thunders condemnation –
A better world’s in birth.
Be courteous, treat the other fellow as thought he is as
important as he thinks he is.
Better is a poor and wise child, than an old and foolish king.
Birth is suffering;
Old age is suffering;
Disease is suffering;
Death is suffering;
Sorrow and misery are suffering;
All these things, O brethren are suffering.
But the tender grace of a day that is dead
Will never come back to me.
Sweet memories of the past remembered in the sad
present give no joy but pain.
Do not oblige to make debtors.
Do not push forward a wagon, you will only raise the
dust about yourself. Do not think of all your anxieties,
you will only make yourself ill.
Dreams are the children of idle brain.
Empty mind is a devil’s workshop.
Every man is dishonest who lives upon the unpaid
labour of others, no matter if he occupies a throne.
Every revolutionary ends by becoming either an
oppressor or a heretic.
Example is better than percept.
For a self – respecting man, infame is worse than death.
