As it is with a play, so it is with life-what matters is not how long the acting lasts, but how good it is.

A Quote by René Descartes on authors, books, conversation, good, men, past, reading, and study

The reading of all good books is indeed like a conversation with the noblest men of past centuries who were the authors of them, nay a carefully studied conversation, in which they reveal to us none but the best of their thoughts.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on constitution, good, laws, names, nature, and sacred

No law can be sacred to me but that of my nature. Good and bad are but names very readily transferable to that or this. The only right is what is after my constitution; the only wrong what is against it.

A Quote by Morihei Ueshiba on concern, defeat, good, heart, and testing

As soon as you concern yourself with the 'good' and 'bad' of your fellows, you create an opening in your heart for maliciousness to enter. Testing, competing with, and criticizing others weaken and defeat you.

A Quote by Morihei Ueshiba on books, good, learning, listening, mountains, people, plants, study, teachers, truth, water, words, and world

Contemplate the workings of this world, listen to the words of the wise, take all that is good as your own. With this as your base, open your won door to truth. Do not overlook the truth that is right before you. Study how water flows in a valley stream, smoothly and freely between the rocks. Also learn from holy books and wise people. Everything-even mountains, rivers, plants, and trees-should be your teacher.

A Quote by Mark Victor Hansen on control, destiny, dreams, future, goals, and good

You control your future, your destiny. What you think about comes about. By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands: your own.
