Compiled Thoughts-13


121. Experience is the hardest kind of teacher. It gives you the test first, and then lesson afterwards.

122. Not a shred of evidence exists in favour of the idea that life is serious.

123. A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from the past, he is one who is prematurely disappointed in the future.

124. Time is the most elastic element of the world. It increases when we are waiting and decreases when we are enjoying.

125.To get out of a difficulty, one usually must go through it.

126. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.

127. Never go to bed mad, stay up and fight.

128. Adversity does not build character, it reveals it.

129. Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind.

130. War does not determine who is right, but those who are left do.
