    Two of my favs:

    "I do not know what I appear to the world; but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me."
    - Isaac Newton

    "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."

    Can't remember who said it, it's something like this:

    "You can tell a country by the way they treat their animals"

    As in if they treat their animals well they most proably treat people well and vice versa...

    I'd say most cases it's highly correct ;) this for individual people too.

    A bit of buddhist wisdom:

    When the student is ready, the teacher appears.

    We are fortunate that we can continue learning and growing throughout our lives. We are also fortunate to meet people with whom are generous of themselves, who are our teachers and we become teachers to them as well. We only have to be aware of this gift that is all around us. Learning and a life of love makes for some really passionate living!

    Quote for the day.

    he will."

    WHY IS IT THAT WE HAVE TO SPEAK ENGLISH?

    A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a Naval conference that included admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies.

    At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a group of half dozen or so officers that included personnel from most of the countries.

    Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, where as Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked: "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French? "

    Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied: "Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German."

    You can't polish a sneaker.

    ? My apologies to those who cherish their sneakers, but my point is that even if you polish a hollow shell, it's still nothing more than a hollow shell. When I was growing up, we used white Kiwi polish to make our sneakers look new, but no matter how hard we tried, an ugly sneaker remained an ugly sneaker. Now when I see a briefing that's heavy on style but short on substance or focus, I say, "You're not gonna be able to polish that sneaker." It's a polite way of saying you haven't started out with anything meaningful. Trying to polish a sneaker can actually be dangerous, because it may inadvertently convince others that the sneaker has a value that it doesn't really possess. This can lead organizations down unproductive dead ends.

    Learn to say "I don't know." If used when appropriate, it will be used often.

    ? How many times have you been in a meeting with someone who felt compelled to contribute, even though he obviously had no idea what he was talking about? In those circumstances, silence is golden. As a CEO, you know that everyone wants to impress you, so I sometimes ask a question to which I already know the answer as a way to test someone's character. Confident people know their strengths and weaknesses, and they don't try to b.s. you. You are not expected to know the answer to everything. Smart people simply say "I don't know" -- and go get an answer.

    from the CEO's handbook.

    from the web:

    The tiny handbook has become an underground hit among senior executives and management thinkers. Written by Bill Swanson, CEO of aerospace contractor Raytheon (RTN), Swanson's Unwritten Rules of Management is part Ben Franklin and part Yogi Berra, with a dash of Confucius thrown in. Former General Electric (GE) CEO Jack Welch says there's something about both the man and his management style that makes the gray book a worthwhile read for any CEO. "It's a neat little manual, and each of these rules makes sense," Welch says. "It covers almost everything, and I like Swanson's feet-on-the-ground approach." Bruce Whitman, president of FlightSafety International, a Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) company that's one of the world's largest aviation training firms, goes even further: "The book is something you can carry around with you like a Bible and live by every day
