Be as careful as the books you read as the company you keep.
People will not be better than the books they read.
Read the best books first, or you may not have a chance to read them all.
To read without reflecting is like eating without digesting.
No entertainment is so cheap as reading, not any pleasure as lasting.
Never leave hold of what you've got until you've got hold of something else.
It is the danger which is least expected that soonest comes to us.
When you go to buy, don't show your silver.
Make sure you have a different opinion and people will talk about you.
Act as if what you do makes a difference, it does.
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently
Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.
The error of youth is to believe that intelligence is a substitute for experience, while the error of age is to believe experience is a substitute for intelligence.
Youth comes but once in a lifetime.
