Knowledge talks, wisdom listens. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me ! Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change. Don’t let your victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart. Those who criticize our generation forget who raised it. Criticizing is easy, art is difficult. Violence won’t solve a thing. It makes it more challenging to solve, though. I don’t know what the key to success is, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone. Not to care for philosophy is to be a true philospher. The mind is like a parachute. It doesn’t work unless it’s open. The best mind-altering drug is truth. Never forget what a man says to you when he is angry.. A winner listens, a loser just waits untill it is their turn to talk. Guns don’t kill people — people do. He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened. If you are not part of the cure, then you are part of the problem. The only time you run out of chances is when you stop taking them. The best things in life are not things. Which one you liked the best??

Hi daffodil! There are just too many of them that I like! I'm not able to pick just one! I like the first one alot. I also like the second one too! Then there are some more towards the end that I like too! I'm really not always big on quotes, but there happen to be the few that I do like! The first one is very true about knowledge. And the second, I say all the time! And you'd think I would learn from them by now!lol These are some of the best quotes around. At least I think they are! Another wonderful discussion for you my dear daffodil! And on Christmas no less! And thank you for the beautiful Christmas comment! I just signed on and saw it! I am getting read to put my lasagna in the oven. My boyfriend and I are just taking our time today! He is watching basketball, which I will watch with him because I love it! We haven't opened our gifts yet either. We were fixing the apartment until late last night and it's almost finished! The re-decorating is finally almost done!

I think all of these you have listed are the best. They all have times to bring a meaning to a person. There are a couple of other ones also. Behind every cloud there is a silver lining. Silence is golden. There are a lot more. But they slip my mind. My Mom used to use a lot of them as I was growing up. But I have forgot quite a few of them.

Heya Daffodil. These are all very good quotes and I like many of them. I especially like the one "Criticizing is easy, art is difficult!" because I find it very relevant actually. People are so quick to judge without ever considering what went on behind the scenes to create what they are seeing. Knowing ourselves for enlightenment is also very valid. I will add - "The truth shall set you free" and "A closed mouth catches no flies" because I believe in both of these quotes also.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me! Don't let victories go to your head, or your failures go to your heart. These two are useful to my daily life.Good!
