Quotes on "Know yourself"

"I have learned so much from people I never knew, who wrote to me in books."
-- Orrin Woodward


As far back as I can remember, I have collected stories and quotes. One liners, parables and anecdotes. Funny, witty, absurd, inspirational and wise. I'd like to share with you some wisdom from others on the subject of knowing yourself.

"Watch your thoughts, they become your words.
Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits.
Watch your habits, they become your character.
Your character is your destiny." -- Dan Tocchini

"As a man thinks, so is he." -- Proverbs 23, verse 7

"You cannot teach a man anything, you can only help him discover what’s within himself." -- Galileo

"If you are good you may need to re-think to become great." -- Dan Tocchini

"The biggest challenge to excellence is being good at something, because to move from good to great requires your willingness to re-think everything you’ve done that got you to be good. In fact, the very thing that got you where you are might be the very thing that stops you from going where you say you want to be." -- Dan Tocchini

"There, but for me, go I." –- Orrin Woodward

"The chains of our habits are too light to feel until they are too heavy to be broken." –- Warren Buffett

"Where you are is where you want to be because that validates your choices."
-- Dan Tocchini

"Our imagination is more powerful than knowledge." -- Albert Einstein

"Acting against character will change your character" -- Casey Combden

"You don't walk away from negative, you run away from negative"


Have an excellent day!
