The graveyards are full of people the world could not do without.

If you suffer, thank God! It is a sure sign that you are alive.

The love we give away is the only love we keep.

A man is as good as he has to be, and a woman is as bad as she dares.

Do not take life too seriously - you will never get out of it alive.

Every man is a damn fool for at least five minutes every day; wisdom consists in not exceeding the limit.

No one ever gets far unless he accomplishes the impossible at least once a day.

The line between failure and success is so fine that we scarcely know when we pass it.

The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

Never explain - your friends don`t need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.

Do your work with your whole heart, and you will succeed - there`s so little competition.

What people need and what they want may be very different.

God will not look you over for medals degrees and diplomas, but for scars.

Your friend is the man who knows all about you, and still likes you.

Polygamy: An endeavor to get more out of life than there is in it.
