A Quote by Dan Millman on compromise, confusion, death, devil, fear, happiness, laughter, mediocrity, moderation, and world

Moderation? It's mediocrity, fear, and confusion in disguise. It's the devil's dilemma. It's neither doing nor not doing. It's the wobbling compromise that makes no one happy. Moderation is for the bland, the apologetic, for the fence-sitters of the world afraid to take a stand. It's for those afraid to laugh or cry, for those afraid to live or die. Moderation...is lukewarm tea, the devil's own brew.

A Quote by Wayne Dyer on confusion, consequences, day, decisions, leadership, and sharing

Each person must decide for himself what he wants each day. As a leader, I will expose you to the options and the likely consequences of those options. I'll even share my opinion if asked, but I'll never confuse it with the opinion, which simply doesn't exist.

Wayne Dyer

A Quote by William Shakespeare on brevity, choice, confusion, darkness, death, dreams, earth, friendship, heaven, history, love, power, sympathy, and war

Ay me! for aught that I could ever read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth. But, either it was different in blood,- Or else it stood upon the choice of friends,- Or, if there were a sympathy in choice, War, death, or sickness did lay siege to it, Making it momentany as a sound, Swift as a shadow, short as any dream; Brief as the lightning in the collied night, That, in a spleen, unfolds both heaven and earth, And ere a man hath power to say 'Behold!' The jaws of darkness do devour it up: So quick bright things come to confusion.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on confusion, emotion, life, mind, possessions, and style

In life courtesy and self-possession, and in the arts style, are the sensible impressions of the free mind, for both arise out of a deliberate shaping of all things and from never being swept away, whatever the emotion into confusion or dullness.

William Butler Yeats (1865 - 1939)
