It is not enough to take steps which may some day lead to a goal; each step must be itself a goal and a step likewise. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Who aims at excellence will be above mediocrity; who aims at mediocrity will be far short of it.
In absence of clearly defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily acts of trivia.
Don’t bunt. Aim out of the ballpark.
There are two things to aim at in life; first to get what you want, and after that to enjoy it. Only the wisest of mankind has achieved the second.
Logan Pearsall Smith

Silence does not always mark wisdom.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
No man was ever wise by chance.
Not to know at large of things remote From use, obscure and subtle, but to know That which before us lies in daily life,
Is the prime wisdom.
By associating with wise people you will become wise yourself.
The seat of knowledge is in the head, of wisdom, in the heart.
Of all parts of wisdom the practice is the best.
The more a man knows, the more he forgives.
Catherine the Great
A loving heart is the truest wisdom.

How prone to doubt, how cautious are the wise!
