Several days ago I reblogged wise quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today I want to introduce to new followers and guests quotes of Thomas Sowell. You’ll find link to an article about him in the post.
“Be authentic. Don’t try to be someone you aren’t. You’ll hate yourself for it & the effort to maintain the facade will exhaust you. BE REAL! Many won’t like the real you but that’s better than having people adore the person that isn’t you at all.”
“I have discovered there are only a handful of good ideas in the whole world. You already know them. You have heard them your entire life. Here are some of the main keys to being more successful:
Take personal responsibility.
Things change, so be flexible.
Work smart and work hard.
Serve others well.
Be nice to others.
Have goals; want something big for yourself.
Become excellent at what you do.
Trust your gut.
When in doubt, take action.
Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.
Enjoy all you’ve got.
Above all keep it simple.”
“Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.”
“Your thoughts, your words, and your actions created the life you are living. You create your results—no one else.”
“Success comes from what you do, not from what you say you are going to do.”
“Make yourself happy and surround yourself with people who are cool with that.”
“One of the consequences of such notions as ‘entitlements’ is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for being nice enough to grace us with their presence.”
“I have never understood why it is “greed” to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”
“When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear.”
“Weighing benefits against costs is the way most people make decisions — and the way most businesses make decisions, if they want to stay in business. Only in government is any benefit, however small, considered to be worth any cost, however large.”
