There are old heads in the world who cannot help me by their example or advice to live worthily and satisfactorily to myself; but I believe that it is in my power to elevate myself this very hour above the common level of my life.
Henry David Thoreau
I didn't fail the test, I just found 100 ways to do it wrong.
What you do not want others to do to you, do not do to others.
Belladonna, n.: In Italian a beautiful lady; in English a deadly poison. A striking example of the essential identity of the two tongues.
This, then, is the test we must set for ourselves; not to march alone but to march in such a way that others will wish to join us.
They teach the morals of a whore, and the manners of a dancing master.
If you must hold yourself up to your children as an object lesson, hold yourself up as a warning and not an example.
George Bernard Shaw
To my knowledge significant progress has never been born of competition.... In science, being 'better' than others is of little practical value. Examples of how absurd the idea of scientific competition is are abundant.
Wisdom is nothing more than confirmed imagination: just because one did not study for his exam does not mean that he should leave it blank.
To succeed in science, you have to avoid dumb people (here I was still following Luria's example). Now that might sound inexcusably flip, but the fact is that you must always turn to people who are brighter than yourself.
James D. Watson
Art led the way for me to recover. He got out of prison before me and started traveling all over the world before I did. He showed me by example that it could be done, and I'll always love him for that.
A pure heart does not demean the spirit of an individual, it, instead, compels the individual to examine his spirit.
The deeds you do may be the only sermon some persons will hear today
St. Francis of Assisi
I think the greatest photographers are the amateur photographers who do it because they love it. Arnold Newman is a good example; he is a consummate professional, but he's also an 'amateur' in the pure sense of the word.
If you say you can or you can't you are right either way ~ Henry Ford
Old people love to give good advice; it compensates them for their inability to set a bad example.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
It's very satisfying to promote science and education and see good results. Setting a good example for young people, being a role model, is very important for me.
Yuan T. Lee
Really, if the lower orders don't set us a good example, what on earth is the use of them?
Whether the ice caps melt, or expand - whatever happens - the anthropogenic global warming theorists claim it confirms their theory. A perfect example of a pseudo-science like astrology.
We are too quick to imitate depraved examples.
