Cowards Quote of the Day

Welcome to these Cowards Quotes of the Day from my large collection of positive, romantic, and funny quotes.

they will slink out of sight.
- Orison Swett Marden

Expediency asks the question - is it politic?
Vanity asks the question - is it popular?

that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;
but one must take it BECAUSE it is right.

than the ephemeral - merely different.

we need to become our own loving teacher and coach.

we develop true regard for ourselves,
and our life will become sacred.

Leaders are made rather than born.
- Warren G. Bennis

institutions must advance also to keep pace with the times.

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks.
Perhaps this person will never
be disappointed or disillusioned;
perhaps she won't suffer the way
people do when they have a dream to follow.
But when the person looks back -
and at some point everyone look back -
she will hear her heart, saying,
"What have you done with the miracles
that God planted in your days?
What have you done with the talents
God bestowed on you?"
- Paulo Coelho

Either we suffer in health or we suffer in soul or we get fat.

while evils are sufferable,
than to right themselves by abolishing
the forms to which they are accustomed.
- Thomas Jefferson

To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love.
But then one suffers from not loving.
Therefore, to love is to suffer; not to love is to suffer;
to suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love.
To be happy, then, is to suffer, but suffering makes one unhappy.
Therefore, to be unhappy, one must love
or love to suffer or suffer from too much happiness.
I hope you're getting this down.
- the movie Love and Death

The greatest deception men suffer is from their own opinions.
- Leonardo da Vinci

All men and women are born, live, suffer and die;
what distinguishes us one from another is our dreams,
whether they be dreams about worldly or unworldly things,
and what we do to make them come about.
We do not choose to be born.
We do not choose our parents.
We do not choose our historical epoch,
the country of our birth,
or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing.
We do not, most of us, choose to die;
nor do we choose the time and conditions of our death.
But within this realm of choicelessness, we do choose how we live.
- Joseph Epstein

Religion has convinced people that there's an invisible man
... living in the sky. Who watches everything you do
every minute of every day. And the invisible man
has a list of ten specific things he doesn't want you to do.
And if you do any of these things,
he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire
and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever,
and suffer, and suffer, and burn, and scream,
until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you.
He loves you and he needs money.
- George Carlin

the wise grows it under his feet.
