Rebecca's Trust



I've really enjoyed and been inspired by the wise things people say. Here's a selection of my favourites. Hope you like them.

That which doesn't destroy me makes me strong.
You can't change the future without disturbing the present.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
Edmond Burke (1729-1797)
Kites fly highest against the wind, not with it.
Sir Winston Churchill
The place to improve the world is first in one's own heart and head and hands.
Robt. Persiq
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.
Ashleigh Brilliant
Good judgement comes from experience, and experience ---well, that comes from poor judgement.
Wisdom comes by disillusionment.
George Santayana
I'm not the man I COULD be,
and I'm certainly not the man I WANT to be,
but I'm not the man I USED to be.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Eat a live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.
Whoever would live fully must experience joy as well as sorrow.
I've been a great deal happier since I have given up thinking about what is easy and pleasant, and being discontented because I couldn't have my own will. Our life is determined for us; and it makes the mind very free when we give up wishing, and only think of bearing what is laid upon us, and doing what is given us to do.
George Eliot
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Do not allow yourselves to be disheartened by any failure as long as you have done your best.
Mother Theresa
Everything can be taken from a person but one thing:
the last of human freedoms--- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances---to choose one's own way.
Viktor Frankl
There is something much more scarce, something rarer than ability. It is the ability to recognize ability.
Robert Half
