By Steve Jobs
It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.
What goes around comes back around.
Karma has no problem getting back in touch with you when need be.
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.
What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others.
What seems to be coming at you is really coming from you.
We are made of all those who have built and broken us.
Brushing a girl’s hair behind her ear once a day will solve more problems than all those therapists and drugs.
I believe the gun is no solution to problems.
My poet’s heart gives me strength to face political problems, particularly those which have a bearing on my conscience.
In the euphoria after the Cold War, there was a misplaced notion that the UN could solve every problem anywhere.
No guns but only brotherhood can resolve the problems.
We seldom think of what we have, but always of what we lack.
So the problem is not so much to see what nobody has yet seen, as to think what nobody has yet thought concerning that which everybody sees.
Politeness is to human nature what warmth is to wax.
The first forty years of life give us the text; the next thirty supply the commentary on it.
