Food for thought #16

“When a hen crows, it heralds the end of an Empire”             – Chinese Proverb

 

“Everyone has a right to be conceited until he is successful”

 

“Keep strong if possible. In any case keep cool. Have unlimited patience. Never corner an opponent, and always assist him to save his face. Put yourself in his shoes so as to see things through his eyes. Avoid self righteousness like the devil – nothing is so self-blinding”     – Liddell Hart

 

“A great man is one who has not lost the child’s heart”                         – Mencius

 

“Man’s dearest possession is life, and since it is given to him to live but once, he must so live as not to be seared with the shame of a cowardly and trivial past, so live as not to be tortured for years without purpose that dying he can say: ‘All my life and my strength were given to the first cause in the world – the liberation of mankind’.”
