Some Nice Quotes

These are some quotations that I've picked up from here and there. They've been sitting on my computer for a while, but are much better shared:

"A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write, if he is to be ultimately at peace with himself. What one can be, one must be." -Abraham Maslow

"In a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence." - Laurence Peter, "The Peter Principle" 1969

"Be the master of your will and the slave of your conscience." -Hasidic saying

"Contempt is the weapon of the weak and a defense against one's own despised and unwanted feelings." -Alice Miller

"Restlessness and discontent are the first necessities of progress." - Thomas A. Edison

"Life is not a static thing. The only people who do not change their minds
are incompetents in asylums, who can't are those in cemeteries."
- Everett Dirksen

"Never explain. Your friends don't need it, and your enemies won't believe you anyhow." - Elbert Hubbard
