An aphorism is a short pearl of wisdom that helps guide us through life. This page lists some good aphorisms that we have come to know and love...
The only thing which will eventually remain of us is our legacy.
No matter the situation you are placed into, work around it, live your life to the fullest you can make it. Your possibilities will always be endless-no matter what.
The constraints that we place upon ourselves are usually far more limiting than those imposed on us by others. Have confidence in yourself, otherwise, achievement is difficult.
Violence and force are short-sighted strategies which breed contempt. To enact lasting change, you need to influence your opponent's heart and mind which can only be done through peace and love.
Change is usually accompanied by predictable conflict driven by those who want to preserve the status quo.
Don't say "no" quite as often as you might want to, and you'll come across some opportunities that you didn't know were there.
Never consider yourself beyond the benefit of advice.
There is no such thing as absolute security. Those who would trade their freedoms for such an illusion are fools. Learn to live with insecurity.
If you want to be successful at something, keep doing it. Have enough sense to improve your performance each time. Keep doing it and eventually you will eventually succeed.
If something looks too good to be true, it probably is. Think about the motivation before you attribute the actions of others to altruism.
Life is short.
Sometimes just keeping your money for a rainy day is enough.
Sometimes people think that there is a shortcut which will allow them to achieve the desired result without working for it. This is almost never the case!
