All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire. I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong. I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. Never give a sword to a man who can’t dance. It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated. I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act. Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared. What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
