Wonderful quotes Patti! I'm all out of ovations so here you go x10
Thanks especially for the Corrie Ten Boom quote, she was an amazing, brave woman. If you ever find a copy of it, read her book "The Hiding Place", it's excellent.
Marcus Tullius Cicero
Advice is judged by results, not by intentions.
As the old proverb says "Like readily consorts with like."
Be sure that it is not you that is mortal, but only your body. For that man whom your outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure which and be pointed out by your finger.
Everyone has the obligation to ponder well his own specific traits of character. He must also regulate them adequately and not wonder whether someone else's traits might suit him better. The more definitely his own a man's character is, the better it fits him.
Freedom is a possession of inestimable value.
He only employs his passion who can make no use of his reason.
He removes the greatest ornament of friendship, who takes away from it respect.
Friendship make prosperity more shining and lessens adversity by dividing and sharing it.
What sweetness is left in life, if you take away friendship? Robbing life of friendship is like robbing the world of the sun. A true friend is more to be esteemed than kinsfolk.
If you aspire to the highest place, it is no disgrace to stop at the second, or even the third, place.
Liberty is rendered even more precious by the recollection of servitude.
Our span of life is brief, but is long enough for us to live well and honestly.
To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child.
The man who backbites an absent friend, nay, who does not stand up for him when another blames him, the man who angles for bursts of laughter and for the repute of a wit, who can invent what he never saw, who cannot keep a secret - that man is black at heart: mark and avoid him.
The name of peace is sweet, and the thing itself is beneficial, but there is a great difference between peace and servitude. Peace is freedom in tranquillity, servitude is the worst of all evils, to be resisted not only by war, but even by death.
There is no duty more obligatory than the repayment of kindness.
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living.
The welfare of the people is the ultimate law.
(Salus Populi Suprema Est Lex)
“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
