My Life Sayings And Quotes

For verily it is not deep words that make a man holy and upright; it is a good life which maketh a man dear to God. I had rather feel contrition than be skilful in the definition thereof. If thou knewest the whole Bible, and the sayings of all the philosophers, what should all this profit thee without the love and grace of God? Vanity of vanities, all is vanity, save to love God, and Him only to serve. That is the highest wisdom, to cast the world behind us, and to reach forward to the heavenly kingdom.
— Thomas à Kempis —

Someone said: ""Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are"
or "tell me who is your friend and I'll tell you who you are" ... etc..
My life experience oppose the above mentioned sayings.
I would say, "Tell me how do you respond to gossip and I will tell you who you are"
"Tell me how do you solve your problems and I'll tell you who you are

— Mahsati Abdul

In the earliest times of the discovery of the faculty of judgment, every new judgment was a find. The worth of this find rose, the more practical and fertile the judgment was. Verdicts which now seem to us very common then still demanded an unusual level of intellectual life. One had to bring genius and acuity together in order to find new relations using the new tool. Its application to the most characteristic, interesting, and general aspects of humanity necessarily aroused exceptional admiration and drew the attention of all good minds to itself. In this way those bodies of proverbial sayings came into being that have been valued so highly at all times and among all peoples. It would easily be possible for the discoveries of genius we make today to meet with a similar fate in the course of time. There could easily come a time when all that would be as common as moral precepts are now, and new, more sublime discoveries would occupy the restless spirit of men.

— Novalis

My advice is really this: what we hear the philosophers saying and what we find in their writings should be applied in our pursuit of the happy life. We should hunt out the helpful pieces of teaching, and the spirited and noble-minded sayings which are capable of immediate practical application-not far-fetched or archaic expressions or extravagant metaphors and figures of speech-and learn them so well that words become works. No one to my mind lets humanity down quite so much as those who study philosophy as if it were a sort of commercial skill and then proceed to live in a quite different manner from the way they tell other people to live.

— Seneca

Tsukuru nodded. Coming up with witty sayings about life seemed, after all, to be a trait shared by all Finns. The long winters might have something to do with it.

— Haruki Murakami

Future generations will probably be able to enlighten us on this very interesting subject, and then science itself-with all due respect-may reach conclusions that are more or less in keeping with Christ's sayings about the other half of our life.

— Vincent Van Gogh

The "sayings" of a community, its proverbs, are its characteristic comment upon life; they imply its history, suggest its attitude toward the world and its way of accepting life. Such an idiom makes the finest language any writer can have; and he can never get it with a notebook. He himself must be able to think and feel in that speech - it is a gift from heart to heart.

— Willa Cather

I have enjoyed life a lot more by saying "yes" than by sayings "no".

— Richard Branson
