By Albert Camus
The lion doesn’t turn around when a dog barks.
Confuse them with your silence. Shock them with your actions.
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.
What goes around comes back around.
When a bird is alive, it eats ants. When bird dies, ants eat it. One tree can be made into million matchsticks but only one matchstick is enough to burn million trees. Circumstances can change at any time. You may be powerful today but time is more powerful than you.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
The people who fight fire with fire, usually end up with ashes.
The axe forgets, but the tree remembers.
Realize that everything connects to everything else.
Whether we believe in God or karma, ethics is the foundation of every religion.
What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
The tired wisdom of knowing that what goes around eventually comes around.
What seems to be coming at you is really coming from you.
Every aspect of Western culture needs a new code of ethics – a rational ethics – as a precondition of rebirth.
You can tell more about a person by what he says about others than you can by what others say about him.
It’s that wonderful old-fashioned idea that others come first and you come second. This was the whole ethic by which I was brought up. Others matter more than you do, so “don’t fuss, dear; get on with it.”
