Some proverbs I like:
(If I use some wrong words or expression please tell me the proper - thank you)
Henry Ford: "If you think you can or you can't - you're right!"
Courage is not the absence of fear but the judgement that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all. For now you are travelling the road between who you think you are and who you can be.
turnover is vanity
profit is sanity
cash is reality

Abraham Lincoln: "The best way to predict the future is to create it."

It is unwise to pay too much;
but it is also unwise to pay too little.
When you pay too much, you lose a little money;
if you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything,
because the thing you bought cannot meet the task!
 
JOHN RUSKIN, on "Quality in Purchasing"

'Truths' / realities that must often be perceived as subjective. How we each perceive the world may be quite different. That's fine - really a very positive thing ...

The tragedy of man's lack of self-knowledge - is one 'truth' or reality, if you will. We submit to the prevailing discourses (these powerful discourses are a large proportion of human devastation - the human penchant for hegemonic and to rule over each other) in society - to a greater or lesser degree - it's almost a requirement one must meet to be allowed to 'be'. That one is compelled to submit to rules / ideas / interpretations of whether and of the world that go against one's own core beliefs, lead to assume strange serious existential conflicts. Existential issues and especially conflicts can strike one as a well-placed kick in the kidneys. Struck at an appropriate time, one sees the possibility of feeling its growth - at an inopportune and sensitive time, one sees only that all options are exhausted ... the only solution is escape ... escape into a corner of the mind .. into mental illness or completion.
There is a possibility of an extension of its own 'truth'. You have to manage to grab the opportunities that emerge before 'the truth' takes an unduly painful and anguish coming form and ends with taking power from one. To cultivate the delicate and beautiful, can contribute to not be engulfed by a mourning over the ravages of mankind and lack self-knowledge. The delicate and beautiful is also found in the immediate ugly - it's about seeing it - whether that would see it.
Greatest of all is love .. most of all, the challenge that comes with love. Through love, open all your senses, to feel a different and wonderful creature - reciprocated and respected, can love change large parts of an otherwise grim 'truth' / reality. But this opening of the senses, brings to mind also its most vulnerable form.

Visit at least once per year a place where you never have been before.

If we had not always tried something new, we would still live in caves.

Annoying are those people
who know so little
so they do not know, how little they know
and therefore think
that they know almost everything

People are seeing things as they are, and are asking: Why? I see things not existing, and ask: Why not?

If you do what you always have done, you'll get the result you always got...

 
Goethe (1749-1832):

Before one for real devote oneself for something, there will always be hesitation, no expectation for results, possibility of withdrawing oneself.

For all creating initiatives and actions there is the non-deviational fact, which - when not knowing about - can destroy the numberless ideas and glorious plans.

That is, in the same moment, one definitive devote oneself to something, the providence changes everything.

Numberless things, one never would have known about, will appear to help one.

A stream/flood of events are created by ones decision, and this causes a lot of favorable and  unexpected coincidences, meetings and concrete form for help, no human could have dreamed about

Therefore - what ever you can dream about being able to do - start with it.

Boldness contains geniality, power and magic.

Start, and start now

The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are

but on how happy other can be

... because of you

Everybody was born as an original - but the most dies as a copy

Don't fear the incredible

Do not be afraid of the fantastic

Einstein: The hardest matter in the world is the idea of people 

Words worth thinking about:

Be aware about your thoughts
they will turn into words


Be aware about your words
they will turn into actions
Be aware about your actions
they will turn into habits


Be aware about your habits
they will turn into your character
Be aware about your character
it will turn into your fate

Think having
l a mind, always prepared to make rebellion against it's own conclusions
l a mind not being suspicious, but open with a constant skepticism
l a mind open for all possibilities, also the impossible
l a mind with a democratic hospitality for other point of views
l a mind being heartfelt, searching, optimistic and hopeful
l a mind able to judge locked processes, procedures - and people
l a mind with a strong conviction about, that the judgment about any kind of action will be made at last, not by science, not by common sense, not by technology, nor by the public opinion - but by the results
l a mind able to carry the light of a new day

Collective creation of opinion is the substitute of the crowd for as well the skill and the will to independent thinking

Still actual…
When the actual human problems shall be solved it is always nice with good advices from gifted people with their finger on the puls of the time. Here you'll find six high-actual sentences from such a gifted person:

l You cannot create prosperity by hampering industry
l You cannot encourage humanity - by establishing class hatred
l You cannot help the people around you by doing all for them, what they very well can do by themselves
l You cannot help the small in the society by destroying the big
l You cannot build up the character of the people around you by removing their initiative and independency
Wise, actual words - well? They where spoken by the president of (land), (name) in the year ????
You have the answer? I would like to hear that - mail it to me

It's really nice to worry about the problems of the world, where you have no chance for solving or helping anyway. This makes you free of using your skills on embarrassing concrete tasks, where you could do something.                   Magazine "Dansk Industri", 1983/3

Everybody only hears what he understand

Goethe

A job is often drawn as a square in an organizational chart, but no job is that "squared". A job is neither circular, squared nor triangular. A job has all forms within it self, means: has no certain form. A position is developing together with the person, fulfilling that position. The job market of the future has no fast positions. Everything is in motion going from one state into another. Therefore one has to create his own position. (Nils Villemoes)
