The paths of glory lead but to the grave.


Truth is lived, not taught
History repeats itself
History needs to be rewritten
The Child is the Father of Man
Compassion is the basis of all morality
The road to happiness is always under construction
Our deeds determine us as much as we determine our deeds
Truth may be eclipsed but not extinguished
No one knows what he can do till he tries
The great end of life is not knowledge but action
Failures are the pillars of success
Cowards die many times before their death.
Man is saved not by faith but by work
Laughter is the best medicine
Knowledge is power
All That Glitters Is Not Gold
Discipline means success , anarchy means ruin
Geography may remain the same ; history need not.
Attitude makes, habit makes character and character makes a man.
Disinterested intellectual curiosity is the lifeblood of civilisation.
Our deeds determine us, as much as we determine our deeds.
Useless life is an early death.
He would reigns within himself and folds his passions and desires and fears is more than a king.
Sweet are the uses of adversity.
