Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought.

Let us see to it that all time belongs to us. This, however, cannot be unless first of all our own selves begin to belong to us.

To act is easy, to think is hard; to act according to our thought is troublesome.

Philosophize, to think your life and to live your thoughts: for that is what philosophy is.

Action is the language of the body and should harmonize with the spirit within.

If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer... And a people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please.
