Hello! Here are some quotes I liked this week.

"Some lessons have to be experienced before they are understood."
Michael Batnick.

"Being able to convey yourself simply using ordinary English words is far more important than being able to write poetry, having an extensive vocabulary, or speaking seven different foreign languages."
Naval Ravikant.

"Stop a minute to contrast your keen interest in your own affairs with your mild concern about anything else. Realize then, that everybody else in the world feels exactly the same way! Then, along with Lincoln and Roosevelt, you will have grasped the only solid foundation for interpersonal relationships; namely, that success in dealing with people depends on a sympathetic grasp of the other person's viewpoint."
Kenneth M. Goode.

"Yet as a teacher, I recognized that it was excessive fear and self-doubt that were the greatest detractors of personal genius. It broke my heart to see students know the answers, yet lack the courage to act on the answer. Often in the real world, it's not the smart who gets ahead, but the bold."
An excerpt from Robert T. Kiyosaki's Rich Dad, Poor Dad.

"If there be one place in life where the attitude of agnostic is beautiful, it is in this matter of judging others. It is the courage to say: 'I don't know. I am waiting further evidence. I must hear both sides of the question. Till then I suspend all judgment.' It is this suspended judgment that is the supreme form of charity."
William George Jordan.
