Pearls

Have you ever wondered about these?

1.  See before you leap [lest you fall in a heap]
     Think before you speak [lest you fall in disgrace]

2. Trusting none is to your peril;
    Trusting all is to  your peril, too.

3. Speak to be audible.
    Write to be legible.

4. Honesty and integrity are thy palms;
    Dedication and devotion are thy feet;
    Persistence and perseverance are thy trunk;
    Warmth and passion are thy heart;
    Motivation and meditation are thy mind.

5. Anything in excess chokes.

6. Nip the problem in the bud;
    Otherwise, they’ll lengthen like the evening shadow.

7. Smile not with your lips;
    Smile with your heart.

8. Given human nature, ‘bad’ is more likely to become ‘worse’ than
      ‘good’ to become ‘better’. What do you think?

9. Love thy neighbour; love you he may not.
    Hate thy neighbour; hate you he will.

10. Cheer another if you can, but smear not.

11. Shutting eyes doesn’t disappear problems; solve them with eyes open.

 12. Condescending is a slap,
       indifference, an insult
       ignoring, cruel

13. Think to be alive. Act to be purposeful.

14. Waves never tire; mountains know no joy or sorrow; rocks are impervious to heat or 
      cold.

15. We look for proxies all the time; it’s easy to blame them.

16. See sea with awe; see sky with wonder.

17. What’s the point of triumph if you have no one to share it with.  ¬Maupassant

18 The ultimate tragedy of mankind is not the brutality of the few but
    the silence of the many.  ¬ Martin Luther King

19. Well done is better than well said. ¬ Ben Franklin

20.  Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make
       mistakes but they don’t quit. ¬ Conrad Hilton—Hotel owner

21. There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The
      little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. ¬ W
      Clement Stone

22. Failure is the opportunity to begain again intelligently¬ Henry Ford


23. Every person is an opportunity and every person is a possibility¬ Robert Schuller
