“You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.” While often attributed to Churchill, a search of over 2.5 million words by and about Churchill in The Churchill Centre’s research database fails to show that Churchill ever spoke or wrote those words.
Everything can change at any moment, suddenly and forever.
巧言令色鮮し仁とは、言葉巧みで、人から好かれようと愛想を振りまく者には、誠実な人間が少なく、人として最も大事な徳である仁の心が欠けているものだということ。 剛毅木訥仁に近しとは、意思が強く強固で、素朴で口数が少ない人物が、道徳の理想である仁に最も近い者であるということ。 温故知新とは、昔のことをよく学び、そこから新しい知識や道理を得ること。また、過去の事柄を研究して、現在の事態に対処すること。 習わぬ経は読めぬとは、知識や経験のまったくない物事をやれと言われても、できるものではないということのたとえ。 大智は愚の如しとは、本当に知恵のある者は知識をひけらしたりしないから、一見すると愚かなように見えるということ。
The wise man knows that it is better to sit on the banks of a remote mountain stream than to be emperor of the whole world.
Life is all about learning from yesterday, living for today and hoping for tomorrow.
幸せになりたいんじゃない、幸せと感じる事の出来る心を手に入れたいんじゃ。 時代は良くも悪くもなってない。いつだって今が最高。 楽しいと楽は対極だよ。楽しいことがしたいなら，楽はしちゃダメだと思うよ。 言いたいことは言う。 その時は心を込めて言う。 どうにもならないことなんて、どうにでもなっていいこと。 新しく何かをやりたいんじゃなくて、今何をやりたいかなんだよ。 ボクは一貫して自己満足です。めざすものは。 ルール破ってもマナーは守れよ。 戦争やってる遠くの国のことよりも、友達の方が大切だと思うけどなぁ。 いつだって今が最高。やっぱ『死に方』より『生き方』だよな。 はっきりさせなくてもいい。あやふやなまんまでいい。僕たちはなんとなく幸せになるんだ。
I’m called ‘the poorest president’, but I don’t feel poor. Poor people are those who only work to try to keep an expensive lifestyle and always want more and more. My definition of poor are those who need too much. Because those who need too much are never satisfied.
Majority rule only works if you’re also considering individual rights. Because you can’t have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.
Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
If anything can go wrong, it will.
If there is light in the soul, There will be beauty in the person. If there is beauty in the person, There will be harmony in the house. If there is harmony in the house, There will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, There will be peace in the world.
If you can’t change your fate, change your attitude. Chance is the first step you take, luck is what comes afterward. Writing what you wished was the most dangerous form of wishful thinking.
War is when your government tells you who the enemy is. Revolution is when you figure it out yourself.
近代的であるというのは、例えば日本とヨーロッパの現実は違うということを知ることなのである。そのために一命を失った日本の近代人もいる。 無意味に生きていること以外に、生きていることに意味はない。 旅行している時に本や雑誌を読むの程、愚の骨頂はない。読むというのは、そこにあることの方へ連れて行かれることだ。 迷ったらば迷ったで進む。 先駆者というのは皆そうである。
If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies, how very different our ideals of beauty would be. The best dreams happen when you’re awake.
The problem with quotes on the internet, is everybody has one, and most of them are wrong. ~ Mark Twain (1835 – 1910)
The notes I handle no better than many pianists. But the pauses between the notes – ah, that is where the art resides. ~ Artur Schnabel It’s not the notes you play; it’s the notes you don’t play. ~ Miles Davis It’s taken me all my life to learn what not to play. ~ Dizzie Gillespy
Le temps humain ne tourne pas en cercle mais en ligne droite. C’est pourquoi l’homme ne peut être heureux puisque le bonheur est désir de répétition. L’homme ne peut jamais savoir ce qu’il faut vouloir car il n’a qu’une vie et il ne peut la comparer à des vies antérieures ni la rectifier dans des vies ultérieures. La sensualité, c’est la mobilisation maximale des sens : on observe l’autre intensément et on écoute ses moindres bruits. Les métaphores sont dangereuses. L’amour commence par une métaphore.
Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.
We may not always get what we want, but surely we will get what we deserve.
Worldly wisdom teaches that it is better for reputation to fail conventionally than to succeed unconventionally. But this long run is a misleading guide to current affairs. In the long run we are all dead. There is no harm in being sometimes wrong — especially if one is promptly found out. Successful investing is anticipating the anticipations of others.
What is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right.
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
Save a little money each month and at the end of the year you’ll be surprised at how little you have.
A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something. __________ I respect faith, but doubt is what gets you an education.
Peace begins with a smile.
You will be stupid. You will worry your parents as I worried mine. You will question your own choices. You will question your relationships, your jobs, your friends, where you live, what you studied in college, that you went to college at all. The thing I want to say is: That is totally okay. That is totally normal. If that happens, you’re doing it right.
Let life surprise you. Don’t have a plan. Plans are for wusses. If my life went according to my plan, I would never ever have the life I have today. You are obviously good planners, or you wouldn’t be here. Stop it! Stop it now! Don’t deprive yourself of the exciting journey your life can be when you relinquish the need to have goals and a blueprint.
Everything existing in the universe is the fruit of chance and necessity. If you suffer injustice, console yourself; the true unhappiness is in doing it. Good means not merely not to do wrong, but rather not to desire to do wrong. By desiring little, a poor man makes himself rich. Do not trust all men, but trust men of worth; the former course is silly, the latter a mark of prudence. Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul. Hope of ill gain is the beginning of loss. I would rather discover one true cause than gain the kingdom of Persia. It is better … Continue reading
Все время оглядываться скучно. Азарт и волнение – в завтрашнем дне.
>No matter what wars or disasters happen in history, what surrounds these times is life, love, salvation and humanity. I hope those things are felt in this story. The human side of the story was more important to me than the background of the Nanjing massacre. Human nature, love and sacrifice — these are the things that are truly eternal. For me, the event is the historical background of the film. But the enduring question of the story is how the human spirit is expressed in wartime.
> Most of the quotes were collected because I like the messages or lessons they had in them. They each inspired me in some way. I placed the first quote in that position for a reason. If you read the first entry and understand the meaning behind it, you will understand why I collected the quotes. Not everyone will agree with every quote I collected. But the first entry will speak for me. My hope is that other people can find the same lessons and wisdom that I did, and maybe even ones I have not seen. I hope they will be meaningful to others.
> When I was young, people called me a gambler. As the scale of my operations increased I became known as a speculator. Now I am called a banker. But I have been doing the same thing all the time.
>To live in this single moment, this lightest breath, this softest touch, to be captured by this smallest, this briefest space of time, to be fully present, alive, consumed in this instant alone, this is truly living.
>Selfishness is not living as one wishes to live, it is asking others to live as one wishes to live.
> 良賈深蔵如虚 水深川清 絶景在険峰 丹心照万古 尽凡心開天地 去華就実 在素知贅 (simple living and high thinking) 任怨分謗 (任怨: 何か思い切った新しい仕事をやる時には、きまってだれかの怨みをかう。だが、そうした怨をいちいち気にしていたのでは、とても新規事業はやりとげられない。敢えてその怨を受けよ。中傷の火の粉を恐れるな; 分謗: いったん志をともにした以上は、一心同体となってその怨を分けて受ける気概がなければならない)
> Many people will admit that they made a mistake. But that doesn’t mean that they’ve changed their mind about anything in particular. It doesn’t mean that they are now able to avoid that mistake.
>I even accept for the sake of argument that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged._____ But it is blindingly clear that judges have no greater capacity than the rest of us to decide what is moral.
> I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.
> Most people spend more time and energy going around problems than in trying to solve them.
> Happiness is the feeling you are feeling when you want to keep feeling it.
> It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.
> J’ai donné ma jeunesse et ma beauté aux hommes, je donne ma sagesse et mon expérience aux animaux.
> We cannot imitate nature but we can be guided by nature.
>Je donne mon avis non comme bon mais comme mien.
Philosophers, as things now stand, are all too fond of offering criticism from on high instead of studying and understanding things from within.
>Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
> “Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT ACT) Act of 2001” 107th CONGRESS, 1st Session, H. R. 3162, IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES, October 24, 2001, Received AN ACT – To deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools, and for other purposes. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, … Any investigative or law enforcement officer, or attorney for the Government, has obtained knowledge of the contents of any wire, oral, or electronic communication, … Continue reading
>If everyone else was jumping off a bridge, do you have to jump too?
> BELIEVE ME, SIR, those who attempt to level, never equalize. In all societies, consisting of various descriptions of citizens, some description must be uppermost. The levelers, therefore, only change and pervert the natural order of things; they load the edifice of society by setting up in the air what the solidity of the structure requires to be on the ground. The association of tailors and carpenters, of which the republic (of Paris, for instance) is composed, cannot be equal to the situation into which by the worst of usurpations- an usurpation on the prerogatives of nature- you attempt to force them.

> One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.
Under agreements that we have negotiated just over the past few years and will come into effect by the end of the decade, we are bringing the number of our nuclear warheads down from over 20,000 when I became chairman four years ago to just over 5000. And today I can declare my hope and declare it from the bottom of my heart that we will eventually see the time when that number of nuclear weapons is down to zero and the world is a much better place.
It is a thousand times better to have common sense without education, than to have education without common sense.
Don’t worry, God understands all languages.
Life without love is no life at all.
They often imposed free trade on weaker countries to perpetuate their inbuilt advantages.
To be conservative is to prefer the familiar to the unknown, to prefer the tried to the untried, fact to mystery, the actual to the possible, the limited to the unbounded, the near to the distant, the sufficient to the superabundant, the convenient to the perfect, present laughter to utopian bliss.
Art is man’s nature; nature is God’s art Respect is what we owe; love, what we give Kindness is wisdom Simplicity is natures first step, and the last of art
Any man who sees Europe now must realise that the victory in a great war is not something you win once and for all like victory in a ball game. Europe to-day is hungry. As the winter comes on, the distress will increase. Unless we do what we can to help we may lose next winter what we won at such terrible cost last spring. The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid the killing of civilians. But if Japan does not surrender bombs will have to be dropped on war … Continue reading

Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
Каждый думает о том, как изменить мир, но никто не думает о том, как изменить себя.
Je suis capable du meilleur et du pire. Mais, dans le pire, c’est moi le meilleur.
Douter de tout ou tout croire, ce sont deux solutions également commodes, qui l’une et l’autre nous dispensent de réfléchir.
Well, I don’t think so.
when her child is sick she takes care of the child without sleep or rest with love and affection she does not ask for over time pay she does not ask for a promotion the UN could save the world if its members are all like the mother
Etre le premier amant d’une femme ne signifie rien; il faut être son dernier amant; tout est là.
C’est parce que tu a voulu le faire.
