Words of wisdom!

“If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.”
― Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge.
It brings out all that is best; removes all that is base.
All men are afraid in battle.
The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty.
Duty is the essence of manhood."

-George S. Patton

Some snippets of wisdom that I like.

Niccolo Machiavelli:

"Before all else, be armed."
"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."
"He who wishes to be obeyed must know how to command."

Nietzsche:

"Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies."
"There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy."
"Shared joys make a friend, not shared sufferings."

Marcus Aurelius:
"Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears."
"Adapt yourself to the things among which your lot has been cast and love sincerely the fellow creatures with whom destiny has ordained that you shall live."
"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present."
"The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious."
"Nothing happens to any man that he is not formed by nature to bear."

Some more Ms Carey quotes  (that might fall under the category of wisdom):

“All knowledge is worth having”
“Those that yield are not always weak”
“I wondered if he could ever understand that it was a blessing, not a sin, to be graced with more than one love. It could be complicated; of course it could be complicated. And it opened one up to the possibility of more pain and loss. Still, it was a blessing I would never relinquish. Love, genuine love, was always a cause for joy.”
“To recongnize that the treachery of one member of a house does not taint all born within it”
“For every victory there is a price.”
“I preferred a hard truth to a well-meant lie.”
“How do you want to die, Admiral? We are D'Angeline. At the hand of numbers, or dreams?”
“What does it mean to be good?”

Quotes by Paulo Coelho:

“Joy is sometimes a blessing, but it is often a conquest. Our magic moment help us to change and sends us off in search of our dreams. Yes, we are going to suffer, we will have difficult times, and we will experience many disappointments — but all of this is transitory it leaves no permanent mark. And one day we will look back with pride and faith at the journey we have taken.”

“A fall from the third floor hurts as much as a fall from the hundredth. If I have to fall, may it be from a high place.”

“In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.”

“It takes a huge effort to free yourself from memory.”
