"Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit."
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."Baltasar Gracian on Steve Jobs

"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."Baltasar Gracian on Nelson Mandela

"A bad manner spoils everything, even reason and justice a good one supplies everything, gilds a No, sweetens a truth, and adds a touch of beauty to old age itself."
"He that can live alone resembles the brute beast in nothing, the sage in much, and God in everything."
"Better mad with the rest of the world than wise alone."
"Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong."
"Never contend with a man who has nothing to lose."
