October Words of Wisdom

Why I post these every month:
Employ your time in improving yourself by other men's writings, so that you shall gain easily what others have labored hard for. --Socrates
Two words should be taken to heart and obeyed when exerting ourselves for good and restraining ourselves for good and restraining ourselves from evil - words that will ensure a blameless and untroubled life: persist and resist. --Epictetus 

A man who does not think for himself does not think at all. --Oscar Wilde
I'm not the hero you wanted. I'm the monster you needed. --Unknown

I just got to the point where I decided that I want to live an unbullshitafied life. --Steve Maraboli
Don't be pushed by your problems. Be led by your dreams. --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Keep winning in private. Not everyone deserves to know what you are up to. --Unknown
The love of learning, the sequestered nooks. And all the sweet serenity of books. --Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 
I cannot comprehend how any man can want anything but the truth. --Marcus Aurelius

I learned that every mortal will taste death. But only some will taste life. --Rumi
It doesn't matter how many times you get knocked down. All that matters is you get up one more time than you were knocked down. --Roy T. Bennett

No man is free who is not master of himself. --Epictetus

If you scare people enough they will demand removal of freedom. This is the path to tyranny. --Elon Musk
It is so easy to break down and destroy. The heroes are those who make peace and build. --Nelson Mandela
The only way that has ever been discovered to have a lot of people cooperate together voluntarily is through the free market. --Milton Friedman
Wise men speak because they have something to say; fools because they have to say something. --Plato
An independent imagination is a rare commodity in today's culture of control and group think. When agenda comes before imagination, creation becomes indoctrination. --Allen Arnold 
The deep critical thinker has become the misfit of the world, and this is not a coincidence. To maintain order and control you must isolate the intellectual, the sage, the philosopher, the savant, before their ideas awaken people. --Carl Jung 

I will never apologize for my beliefs or my love for my family and country. This is the greatest country in the world, and I want to keep it that way. --Jason Aldean

Be grateful every day for our flag, our country, and those who serve to protect our freedoms. --Johnny Cash
