~Two Kinds Of Discontent

      There are two kinds of discontent in this world: the discontent that works, and the discontent that wrings its hands.

      The first gets what it wants, and the second loses what it had. There is no cure for the first but success, and there is no cure at all for the second.

—Elbert Hubbard



~When We No Longer Care

      Arnold Toynbee has pointed out that nineteen of twenty-one civilizations have died from within and not by conquest from without. There were no bands playing and flags waving when these civilizations decayed. It happened slowly, in the quiet and in the dark when no one was aware.”


~Epigram On Action

      You don’t have to lie awake nights to succeed. Just stay awake days.


~Epigram On Action
