Golden words

hi there....

these quotes and sayings below are the ones i have long admired and
appreciated .....just read them...give them a little thought and tell
me what you feel...and please do send me some of your fav sayings...!!

-- Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it.
Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held. Believe
nothing just because it is said in ancient books. Believe nothing just
because it is said to be of divine origin. Believe nothing just
because someone else believes it. Believe only what you yourself test
and judge to be true.

-- It is not worth an intelligent man's time to be in the majority. By
definition, there are already enough people to do that.

-- The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of
comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and

-- To repeat what others have said, requires education, to challenge it,
requires brains.

-- silence is the highest form of grace!!

-- Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.

-- The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to
listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give
each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more
power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.

-- The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think,
than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us
to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other

-- Real knowledge and wisdom din't come thro' books or teachers..They
come thro' struggle , effort, and thought!!
