Sometimes, people aren’t as consciously aware of their decisions as they should be.
Sorrow for sin is indeed necessary, but it should not be an endless preoccupation. You must dwell also on the glad remembrance of God’s loving-kindness; otherwise, sadness will harden the heart and lead it more deeply into despair.
The Bible says to ‘fear not,’ but this doesn’t mean you should never feel scared. It means when you do feel fear, keep going forward and do what you are supposed to do. Or as I like to say, do it afraid.
The majority of meetings should be discussions that lead to decisions.
Why should we think upon things that are lovely? Because thinking determines life. It is a common habit to blame life upon the environment. Environment modifies life but does not govern life. The soul is stronger than its surroundings.
Scientific advancement should aim to affirm and to improve human life.
If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
We have to forget the past. History is something that even today we are paying the consequences, and the future is integration. We all as a people, as citizens, as the leadership of both countries should be looking in that direction.
Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.
Once you achieve one goal, you should be looking forward to trying to build onto the next thing, and not just getting comfortable with what you’re doing.
We should remember that there are nations which meet more than 30 to 60% of their power requirements through the nuclear power system.
Anybody who thinks talk is cheap should get some legal advice.
I watched the ‘Food, Inc.’ documentary and was like, ‘This has opened my eyes to the meat industry – maybe I should go vegetarian.’ And my friend told me, ‘Sadie, you’re not gonna last a week.’ But I’m very competitive.
If you call ‘religious’ a man who believes in what I call a Supermeaning, a meaning so comprehensive that you can no longer grasp it, get hold of it in rational intellectual terminology, then one should feel free to call me religious, really.
I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?
A dish should have flavor, texture, appearance and smell, but I’m doing it differently. We take Chinese food, play with your sentiments, memories of it, and then take you to the border; you won’t fall over the edge, but you get excitement.
I never travel without my diary. One should always have something sensational to read in the train.
I think a child should be allowed to take his father’s or mother’s name at will on coming of age. Paternity is a legal fiction.
The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.
Family and friends and faith are the most important things in your life and you should be building friendships.
I just do whatever it is that I believe I should do, regardless of the risks to my life.
If you shoot at mimes, should you use a silencer?
As I have always said, those closest to the pain should be closest to the power.
Every day without fail one should consider himself as dead. There is a saying of the elders that goes, ‘Step from under the eaves and you’re a dead man. Leave the gate and the enemy is waiting.’ This is not a matter of being careful. It is to consider oneself as dead beforehand.
Nothing is impossible; there are ways that lead to everything, and if we had sufficient will we should always have sufficient means. It is often merely for an excuse that we say things are impossible.
