Thought for the day 12th of July 2011

Famous quotes is the topic on the blog ‘Thought for the day’ today. I want to take a lot of quotes that were written by famous people and post them on this article. I promise to expand it whenever I find time for that. So, you will find here a lot of thoughts by various authors and my short comments under each quotation. I hope the latter won’t be boring. So, let us go. 

Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?” by Abraham Lincoln. 

Yes, you do. People who understand how power works usually benefit more from their enemies than from their friends. This is because friendship is a relationship that is built on non business type of ties. If you are able to make your enemies friends you will be able to cooperate with them doing a lot of business type of projects that your real friends will probably be not fit for that. 

Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new” by Albert Einstein.

Making mistakes is part of the road to perfection. It is also an inseparable part of learning process. You will not learn anything without doing something and when you do something you will always make mistakes. When you make them, you can either learn from them or repeat them. You decide which way you want to go. 

Good habits formed at youth make all the difference” by Aristotle. 

Good habits are a great treasure. The earlier you form them, the better. When they are formed they start controlling you. Imagine what happens if they are bad. They will force you to do crazy things. 

A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two things. There will be sleeping enough in the grave” by Benjamin Franklin.

If you are lazy, you are killing your time. This life is meant to be lived doing something good. Remember, God worked for six days creating this earth and everything that is in it. He had a rest only on the seventh day. That is a good example for us to follow. 

I believe that if you show people the problems and you show them the solutions they will be moved to act” by Bill Gates.

Most people don’t do anything because they do not see what they can do. They do not have a vision. When they get one, they will never be lazy. 

I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times” by Bruce Lee.

Practice makes perfect. Don’t go around doing one hundred jobs at a time. Become skillful at something. Become a master in one field and you will leave something great behind you.
Hope you enjoyed the famous quotes.
