It's okay to make mistakes.
Mistakes are our teachers -
they help us to learn


Happiness is not a reward -
it is a consequence.
Suffering is not a punishment -
it is a result

The cure for sorrow is to learn something

Although the world is full of suffering,
it is full also of the overcoming of it

Patience is a remedy for every sorrow

The best way to convince a fool that
he is wrong is to let him have his own way.

I find television very educating.
Every time somebody turns on the set,
I go into the other room and read a book

Happiness is a mystery,
like religion, and should never be rationalized

Love builds bridges where there are none.

The penalty for success is to be bored
by the people who used to snub you.

Patience is not active; on the contrary, it is active;
it is concentrated strength

There couldn't be a society of people who didn't dream.
They'd be dead in two weeks

When I was a kid, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord, in his wisdom,
didn't work that way.
So I just stole one and asked him to forgive me.
 

There's always the motivation of wanting to win.
Everybody has that.
But a champion needs, in his attitude,
a motivation above and beyond winning.

The brighter you are,
the more you have to learn.

The long way around





When I do good, I feel good.
When I do bad, I feel bad.
And that's my religion

Procrastination is the thief of time

We are injured and hurt emotionally,
Not so much by other people or what they say and don't say,
But by our own attitude and our own response.

Life is divided into the horrible and the miserable.

To sin by silence when they should
protest makes cowards of men

Everybody wants to live forever,
but nobody wants to grow old.

Progress is impossible without change,
and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything

The worst superstition is to consider our own tolerable

Age is something that doesn't matter,
unless you are a cheese

I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.

The secret of a person's nature lies in their religion and what
they really believes about the world and their place in it

Anyone afraid of what he thinks television
does to the world is probably just afraid of the world

The expected is what we live for.
The unexpected is what changes our lives

The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within.

We can live without religion and meditation,
but we cannot survive without human affection

It seemed the world was divided into good and bad people. T
he good ones slept better...
while the bad ones seemed to enjoy the waking hours much more

Wisdom comes alone through suffering

It is strange how often a heart must be broken before the years can make it wise

Talent does what it can;
genius does what it must.

The world is full of people who never quite get into
the first team and who just miss the prizes at the flower show

To study the abnormal is the best way of understanding the normal

Eighty percent of success is showing up.

Problems can become opportunities when the right people come together

In every tyrant's heart there springs in the end this poison,
that he cannot trust a friend

Writer's Block: Collector's piece ...

Do you collect anything? If so, describe your favorite collection (past or present).

I collect tv series on dvd at the moment i have 85 dvd's </3 and comic books of four Belgium / Dutch series

Best days of your life





Cast aside those who liken godliness to whimsy and who
try to combine their greed for wealth with their desire for a happy afterlife.

It is not suffering as such that is most deeply feared but suffering that degrades

There are times when sorrow seems to be the only truth

If I seem to give a damn,
please tell me.
I would hate to be giving the wrong impression.

For other nations,
utopia is a blessed past never to be recovered;
for Americans it is just beyond the horizon

An optimist is a guy that has never had much experience.

It is not necessary to understand things in order to argue about them.

Joy comes from using your potential

Man cannot aspire if he looked down;
if he rise, he must look up

The supreme happiness in life is the conviction that we are loved -
loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.

Just trust yourself,
then you will know how to live.

If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you,
it will be enough.

In order to experience everyday spirituality,
we need to remember that we are spiritual beings spending some time in a human body.

Let your hook be always cast.
In the pool where you least expect it,
will be fish.

The fastest way to succeed is to look as if
you're playing by other people's rules,
while quietly playing by your own. 

Men will wrangle for religion,
write for it, fight for it, die for it,
anything but live for it.

He who is the most slow in making a promise is the most faithful in the performance of it.

There's always the motivation of wanting to win.
Everybody has that. But a champion needs,
in his attitude, a motivation above and beyond winning.

The brighter you are,
the more you have to learn.

The most important thing in
communication is hearing what isn't being

Fascism is not in itself a new order of society.
It is the future refusing to be born

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.

The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost,
to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day,
listening to the murmur of water,
or watching the clouds float across the sky,
is by no means a waste of time

A traveler of taste will notice that the wise are polite all over the world,
but the fool only at home

Between friends differences in taste or opinion are irritating in direct proportion to their triviality

Never try to reason the prejudice out of a man.
It was not reasoned into him, and cannot be reasoned out

Taste is nothing but an enlarged capacity for receiving pleasure from works of imagination

Why shouldn't truth be stranger than fiction?
Fiction, after all, has to make sense.

I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. T
hat's deep enough.
What do you want, an adorable pancreas?

Death, after all,
is what gives life meaning the way noise gives meaning to silence

Words could be so powerful,
if only people meant what they said

strength doesn`t come from winning.
your struggles develop your strengths.
when you go through hardships & decide not to surrender, that is strength.

We all live with the objective of being happy;
our lives are all different, and yet the same

What we need is not the will to believe,
but the wish to find out.

B.I.B.L.E. = Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.

Patience is not active;
on the contrary, it is active;
it is concentrated strength

I believe in the sun even when its not shining,
in love even when I'm alone and in God even when He is silent. -
Written on a basement wall in Nazi Germany,
where a Jewish refugee had been hiding from agents of the Holocaust

There couldn't be a society of people who didn't dream.
They'd be dead in two weeks

When I was a kid, I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realized that the Lord, in his wisdom, didn't work that way.
So I just stole one and asked him to forgive me.

Getting old is a fascination thing.
The older you get, the older you want to get.

Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

You may be deceived if you trust too much,
but you will live in torment if you don't trust enough

When you face your fear,
most of the time you will discover that it was not really such a big threat after all.
We all need some form of deeply rooted,
powerful motivation -
it empowers us to overcome obstacles so we can live our dreams.

It's okay to make mistakes.
Mistakes are our teachers - they help us to learn
