Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Do not engage in verbal sparring with those of limited intellect, for they will drag you to their level and outwit you through practice.
Reflect on the fact that yesterday's apprehensions are today's realities.
today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.
Assuming the world will be equitable to you due to your moral character is akin to assuming a bull won't charge at you because of your dietary preferences.
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.
When I pass away, I want to depart like my grandpa who left this world calmly in his slumber. Not yelling as if all the individuals in his vehicle.
The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.
The disparity between foolishness and brilliance is that brilliance is bounded.
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
'Swiftness of light surpasses the velocity of sound, accounting for why some seem smart until they open their mouths.'
I've never understood the point of ecstasy. I think if I wanted to get dehydrated and jump about with a load of people I've never met before I could go to a Methodist barn dance.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
'Those who oppose you demonstrate that you have taken a stance at least once in your life.'
You call to a dog and a dog will break its neck to get to you. Dogs just want to please. Call to a cat and its attitude is, 'What's in it for me?'
Summon a dog and it will do whatever it takes to reach you. Dogs are motivated by approval. Summon a cat, however, and its response is more likely to be 'What's the benefit for me?'

I arrived here to battle and show my might. And I'm out of ammunition.
If life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade. And try to find somebody who's life gives them vodka, and have a party.
If life throws you a curveball, you should make the best of it. And seek out someone whose situation offers an opportunity for celebration.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
It is wiser to stay quiet and risk being deemed a fool than to utter words and leave no uncertainty.

I think that when life throws you a curveball, you should make the most of it... And search for someone whose luck has delivered them with spirits, and celebrate.
Religion is like a blind man looking in a black room for a black cat that isn't there, and finding it.
Faith is like a sightless individual groping in an ebony chamber for a non-existent black feline and discovering it.

I was born to make mistakes, not to fake perfection
I was born to err, not to fabricate flawlessness.
