By Albert Camus
The lion doesn’t turn around when a dog barks.
Confuse them with your silence. Shock them with your actions.
Life is hard; It’s harder if you’re stupid.
Those who do not howl will never find their pack.
Where there are sheep, the wolves are never very far away.
A careless shepherd make excellent dinner for a wolf.
The tiger and the lion may be more powerful, but the wolf does not perform in the circus.
It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
The people who fight fire with fire, usually end up with ashes.
The axe forgets, but the tree remembers.
The tired wisdom of knowing that what goes around eventually comes around.
Money demands that you sell, not your weakness to men’s stupidity, but your talent to their reason.
Do not ever say that the desire to ‘do good’ by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives.
You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
This is the case with many learned persons; they have read themselves stupid.
There is some wisdom in taking a gloomy view, in looking upon the world as a kind of Hell, and in confining one’s efforts to securing a little room that shall not be exposed to the fire.
If we suspect that a man is lying, we should pretend to believe him; for then he becomes bold and assured, lies more vigorously, and is unmasked.
Putting is like wisdom – partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience.
You cannot teach a crab to walk straight.
A man can learn wisdom even from a foe.
