#888 Refresh your mind

Make your own Bible.  Select and collect all the words and sentences that in all your readings have been to you like the blast of a trumpet.  ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

An apt quotation is like a lamp which flings its light over the whole sentence.  ~ Letitia Elizabeth Landson

Almost every wise saying has an opposite one, no less wise to balance it.  ~ George Santayana

Most people are other people.  Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passion a quotation.  ~ Oscar Wilde

Like your body your mind also gets tired; so refresh it by wise sayings.  ~ Hazrat Ali
