Why do they always teach us that it's easy and evil to do what we want and that we need discipline to restrain ourselves? It's the hardest thing in the world--to do what we want. And it takes the greatest kind of courage. I mean, what we really want.
Ayn Rand quotes
I think God leaves me alone to let me find my own strength because no one else can give it to me. Sometimes it is very lonely. But I know the lonely times teach me the most. I must let go in order to let anything in. No one can love me, for me. Take a big walk protected in the trees. I miss the time before today.
Sabrina Ward Harrison quotes
Teach your child to hold his tongue, he'll learn fast enough to speak.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
In teaching others we teach ourselves.
Anglo-Saxon civilization has taught the individual to protect his own rights; American civilization will teach him to respect the rights of others.
William Jennings Bryan quotes
Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.
Ernest Hemingway quotes
The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!
Maria Montessori quotes
Those who enter to buy, support me. Those who come to flatter, please me. Those who complain, teach me how I may please others so that more will come. Only those hurt me who are displeased but do not complain.
Martha Graham quotes
America must be the teacher of democracy, not the advertiser of the consumer society. It is unrealistic for the rest of the world to reach the American living standard.
Mikhail Gorbachev quotes
A wise teacher makes learning a joy.
