-When life gives you a hundred reasons to cry, show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile. -The world is a dangerous place to live - not because of the people who are evil but because of the people who don't do anything about it. -Imagination is more important than knowledge. -A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. -The greatest happiness is to know the source of unhappiness. -Be the chief but never the lord. -He who conquers others is strong; He who conquers himself is mighty. -Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it. -Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. -The career of a sage is of two kinds: He is either honored by all in the world, Like a flower waving its head, Or else he disappears into the silent forest. -To lead people walk behind them. -Violence, even well intentioned, always rebounds upon oneself. -When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. -When the best leader's work is done the people say : "We did it ourselves."
