The cynics are right nine times out of ten.

Henry Louis Mencken

I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they`re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Marilyn Monroe

Right actions in the future are the best apologies for bad actions in the past.

Tryon Edwards

Learn what is true in order to do what is right.

Thomas Henry Huxley

Conceiving God to be the fountain of wisdom, I thought it right and necessary to solicit his assistance for obtaining it; to this end I formed the following little prayer, which was prefix`d to my tables of examination, for daily use: "O powerful Goodness! bountiful Father! merciful Guide! Increase in me that wisdom which discovers my truest interest. Strengthen my resolutions to perform what that wisdom dictates. Accept my kind offices to thy other children as the only return in my power for thy continual favours to me."

Benjamin Franklin

War does not determine who is right. Only who is left.

Bertrand Russell

It is dangerous to be right in matters on which the established authorities are wrong.

Voltaire

Keep true, never be ashamed of doing right; decide on what you think is right and stick to it.

George Eliot

It`s the action, not the fruit of the action, that`s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there will be any fruit. But that doesn`t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no results.

Mahatma Gandhi

The way you solve things is by making it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing.

Milton Friedman

If you always make the right decision, the safe decision, the one most people make, you will be the same as everyone else. Always wishing life was different.

Paul Arden

If you show somebody a piece of your work and you ask them ‘What do you think? ’, they will probably say it’s okay because they don’t want to offend you. Next time, instead of asking if it’s right, ask them what’s wrong. They may not say what you want to hear, but the chances are they will give you a truthful criticism. Truth hurts, but in the long run it’s better than a pat on the back.

Paul Arden

There is a conventional or popular point of view. There is a personal point of view. There is a large point of view which the majority share. There is a small point of view which just a few share. But there is no right point of view. You are always right. You are always wrong. It just depends from which pole you are looked at. Advances in any field are built upon people with the small or personal point of view.

Paul Arden

A book can be as dangerous as a sword in the right hands.

George R. R. Martin

No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.

Albert Einstein
