Oxstone Guide to Success and Personal Development


I like this.


In a crisis people grow wisdom.

Review past lessons to discover anew.

To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.

If you understand, things are just as they are; if you do not understand, things are just as they are.

To realize that you do not understand is a virtue; Not to realize that you do not understand is a defect.

Intelligence is endowed, but wisdom learned.

Experience is the mother of wisdom.

Without experiece we will not gain full knowledge.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of ones ignorance.

Wise men may not be learned; learned men may not be wise.

It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.

A wise man makes his own decisions, an ignorant man follows the public opinion.

Common sense goes further than a lot of learning.

What is scare is valued, what is plentiful is not.

If you are planning for a year, sow rice; if you are planning for a decade, plant trees; if you are planning for a lifetime, educate people.

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.

In criticizing, the teacher is hoping to teach. That’s all.

A closed mind is like a closed book, just a block of wood.

He who asks is a fool for 5 minutes, but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.

Learning is like the horizon; there is no limit.

He who learns but does not think is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.

To know yet to think one does not know is best; Not to know yet to think one knows will lead to difficulty.

Be not afraid of growing slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

First attain skill; creativity comes later.

Wait long, strike fast.

To know what is right and not to do it is the worst cowardice.

Failure is the mother of success.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

Only time and effort brings proficiency.

The rich man plans for tomorrow… The poor man for today.

Although gold dust is precious, when it gets in your eyes, it obstructs your vision.
