Jewels for the Week 2-2-14 to 2-8-14:

“There are no solutions, only trade-offs.” ~ Thomas Sowell

“The problem is not that there are problems, but expecting otherwise…it’s in the thinking that having a problem is a problem itself.” ~ Theodore Rubin

“If you have a moral compass, and you stay with it, people will always gravitate towards you.” ~ Carol Alt (model and actress)

“Honor is simply the morality of superior men…” ~ H.L. Mencken

“The gulls who scorn perfection for the sake of travel go nowhere, slowly. Those who put aside travel for the sake of perfection go anywhere, instantly.” ~ from Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach (a short fable about a seagull learning to fly, which serves as a metaphor for self-cultivation and the pursuit of excellence as a standard in life).

“It is our choices that show us who we are, far more than our abilities.”

“One must never stop reading. Read everything that you can that is of standard knowledge. Don’t waste time reading trashy literature.” ~ Marcus Garvey
