Solomon Short Quotes

The difference between contribution and commitment? Ham and eggs requires a CONTRIBUTION from the chicken, but a COMMITMENT from the pig.

The difference between luck and ability is duration.

The lesser of two evils is still evil.

The real test of a human being is not what he knows, but what he learns.

I’ve always found verbs to be very strong-willed. They go where they want to, not where you tell them. Adjectives, however, are a fussy lot, extravagant, serendipitous, spoiled, upsetting, frivolous and remarkably sensitive to adverbs. Nouns pretend to be objective, and pronouns take everything personally.

All problems are people problems. And most people problems are people refusing to act like people.

Search for yourself, by yourself. Do not allow others to make your path for you. It is your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.

Do not take what is not yours whether from a person, a community, the wilderness or from a culture. It was not earned nor given. It is not yours.

Honor other people’s thoughts, wishes and words. Never interrupt another or mock or rudely mimic them. Allow each person the right to personal expression.

Never speak of others in a bad way. The negative energy that you put out into the universe will multiply when it returns to you. All persons make mistakes. And all mistakes can be forgiven. Bad thoughts cause illness of the mind, body and spirit. Practice optimism.

Nature is not for us, it is a part of us.

Children are the seeds of our future. Plant love in their hearts and water them with wisdom and life’s lessons. When they are grown, give them space to grow.

Make conscious decisions as to who you will be and how you will react. Be responsible for your own actions.

Be true to yourself first. You cannot nurture and help others if you cannot nurture and help yourself first.

7 Cardinal Rules of Life

Make peace with your past, so it doesn't spoil your present. Your past does not define your future – your actions and beliefs do.

What others think of you is none of your business. It's how much you value yourself and how important you think you are.

Time heals almost everything, give time, time. Pain will be less hurting. Scars make us who we are; they explain our life and why we are the way we are. They challenge us and force us to be stronger.

No one is the reason for your own happiness, except you yourself. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside.

Don't compare your life with others', you have no idea what their journey is all about. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we would grab ours back as fast as we could.

Stop thinking too much, it's alright not to know all the answers. Sometime there is no answer, not going to be any answer, never has been an answer. That's the answer! Just accept it, move on!

Smile, you don't own all the problems in the world. A smile can brighten the darkest day and make life more beautiful. It is a potential curve to turn a life around and set everything straight.

Pessimist vs. Optimist
William Arthur Ward

The pessimist finds fault;
The optimist discovers a remedy.

The pessimist seeks sympathy;
The optimist spreads cheer.

The pessimist criticizes circumstances;
The optimist changes conditions.

The pessimist complains about the apple seeds;
The optimist plants them.

The pessimist imagines impending peril;
The optimist sees signs of prosperity.

The pessimist disparages;
The optimist encourages.

The pessimist creates loneliness;
The optimist finds friends.

The pessimist nibbles at the negative;
The optimist is nourished by the positive.

The pessimist builds barriers;
The optimist removes roadblocks.

The pessimist invents trouble;
The optimist enriches the environment.

“A man's sexual choice is the result and the sum of his fundamental convictions.... He will always be attracted to the woman who reflects his deepest vision of himself, the woman whose surrender permits him to experience a sense of self-esteem. The man who is proudly certain of his own value, will want the highest type of woman he can find, the woman he admires, the strongest, the hardest to conquer--because only the possession of a heroine will give him the sense of an achievement.”
― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

I recognize that I belong to the family of mankind
Made up of all human beings of every race, color,
creed and ideology
Now living on this Planet Earth.

I understand that there can be no common good
Without an individual good.

I am responsible for myself and for all human beings
Who share this earth with me.

I know that our enemies are those among us
Who will not share the responsibility for our common good.

I accept my own personal responsibility:
To replace darkness with light,
To replace hatred with love,
To replace suspicion with trust,
To replace lies and hypocrisy with honesty,
To replace abuse with kindness,
To replace frustration with patience,
To replace fear with understanding,
To replace bias, prejudice and discrimination
with tolerance,
To replace ignorance with knowledge,
To replace indifference with concern,
And to replace apathy with action.

I believe that all men are entitled to equal opportunities
To live, to grow and to flourish as human beings
With dignity and respect.

I acknowledge that it is as important
To live and work for peace
As to die for peace.

As a member of the family of mankind
Now living on this Planet Earth
I thus commit myself
And challenge my children
And their children
To do as well.

10 Ways to be Unhappy

1. Make little things bother you. Don’t just let them, make them.

2. Lose your perspective on things and keep it lost: don’t put first things first.

3. Find yourself a good worry, one about which you cannot do anything.

4. Be a perfectionist, which means not that you work hard to do your best, but that you condemn yourself and others for not achieving perfection.

5. Be right. Be always right. Be the only one who is always right, and be rigid in your rightness.

6. Don’t trust or believe people, or accept them at anything but their worst and weakest.

7. Be suspicious. Insist that others always have hidden motives.

8. Always compare yourself unfavorably to others. This guarantees instant misery.

9. Take personally everything that happens to you.

10. Don’t give yourself whole-heartedly to anyone or anything.

Seems to me that the institutions that function in this country are clearly racist, and that they're built upon racism.

We cannot reform institutional racism or systemic policies if we are not actively engaged. It's not enough to simply complain about injustice; the only way to prevent future injustice is to create the society we would like to see, one where we are all equal under the law.

“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him. If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected .”
