THE PURPOSE OF THIS WRITING is to remind us that there has been wonderful people who have gathered knowledge, experience, and wisdom so profound that even after decades, centuries, and millenniums after they left this world, their vivacity remains. Those with open mind will read ~not as entertainment or to kill time~ but to go deep in the set of thoughts that encase valuable, insightful knowledge to reflect on and to benefit from.
This is her wisdom:
"For beautiful eyes, look for what is good in others. For beautiful lips, speak only
words of kindness. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
Simone's wisdom is in these thoughts:
"One is not born a woman. One becomes a woman. But
no woman is genuine if she mimicks and imitates men."
"To catch a good husband is an art, but to keep him is a job."
"If you bungle raising your kids anything you do well doesn't really matter."
This is what she wants us to not forget:
"The truth is what actually happens. It is not what you want to happen."
"Education is a matter between a person and the world of human
qualities. Education has nothing to do with school or college."
"When you stop learning and asking questions, then, it is
time to die."
"None but the weak crave to be better than others.
Strong men are satisfied with their own strength."
These were his convictions:
"The better I get to know men, the more I love my dog."
"Nothing great will ever be achieved without great men,
and men are great only if they are determined to be so."
The following is what he also left us with:
"The pen is the tongue of the mind."
"Tell me who you are with and I'll tell you who you are."
"He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend
loses even more; but he that loses his courage loses all."
"The gratification of wealth is not mere possession. The
gratification comes with wise application."
His wisdom and wit are right here:
"Kindness is a language. The deaf can hear it and the blind
can see it."
"Courage is resistance to fear. It is not absence of fear."
"If you do not read newspapers, you are uninformed.
If you do read newspapers, you are mis-informed."
"Noise proves nothing. A hen merely laids one
egg and cackles as if she laid an asteroid."
"April 1st. is the day we remember what
we are the other 364 days of the year."
Here is his wisdom:
"Science makes mistakes useful to make. It is because
~little by little~ they lead to the truth."
"The sea is an immense desert. It covers seven tenths
of the terrestrial globe. One's breath by it is pure and
healthy, and one never feels lonely."
These are three of his meaningful thoughts:
"Each man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions.
For God can read hearts."
"Greatness in a nation and its moral progress can be judged
by the way animals are treated."
"To confess errors is like a broom. It sweeps away dirt and
leaves the surface brighter and clearer."
you may review again the wisdom left behind
for those with an open mind to learn from it.
