Akhenaton

True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance.More Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Be thou incapable of change in that which is right, and men will rely upon thee. Establish unto thyself principles of action; and see that thou ever act according to them. First know that thy principles are just, and then be thouMore Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Say not that honor is the child of boldness, nor believe thou that the hazard of life alone can pay the price of it: it is not to the action that it is due, but to the manner of performing it.More Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Indulge not thyself in the passion of anger; it is whetting a sword to wound thine own breast, or murder thy friend.More Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The ambitious will always be first in the crowd; he presseth forward, he looketh not behind him. More anguish is it to his mind to see one before him, than joy to leave thousands at a distance.More Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As a rock on the seashore he standeth firm, and the dashing of the waves disturbeth him not. He raiseth his head like a tower on a hill, and the arrows of fortune drop at his feet. In the instant of danger, the courage of his heart here, and scorn to fly.More Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
As the whirlwind in its fury teareth up trees, and deformeth the face of nature, or as an earthquake in its convulsions overturneth whole cities; so the rage of an angry man throweth mischief around him.More Akhenaton [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Hear the words of prudence, give heed unto her counsels, and store them in thine heart; her maxims are universal, and all the virtues lean upon her; she is the guide and the mistress of human life.More Akhenaton [07/13/2011 03:07:51]
The lips of the wise are as the doors of a cabinet; no sooner are they opened, but treasures are poured out before thee.More Akhenaton [07/13/2011 03:07:25]
Those who gave thee a body, furnished it with weakness; but He who gave thee Soul, armed thee with resolution. Employ it, and thou art wise; be wise and thou art happy.More Akhenaton [07/13/2011 03:07:33]
To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.More Akhenaton [07/13/2011 03:07:41]
When virtue and modesty enlighten her charms, the lustre of a beautiful woman is brighter than the stars of heaven, and the influence of her power it is in vain to resist.More Akhenaton [07/13/2011 03:07:57]
If thou wouldst preserve understanding and health to old age, avoid the allurements of Voluptuousness, and fly from her temptations...For if thou hearkenest unto the words of the Adversary, thou art deceived and betrayed. The joy which she promiseth changeth to madness, and her enjoyments lead on to diseases and death.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Scorn also to depress thy competitor by any dishonest or unworthy method; strive to raise thyself above him only by excelling him; so shall thy contest for superiority be crowned with honour, if not with success.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Reflection is the business of man; a sense of his state is his first duty: but who remembereth himself in joy? Is it not in mercy then that sorrow is allotted unto us?More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Why seeketh thou revenge, O man! with what purpose is it that thou pursuest it? Thinkest thou to pain thine adversary by it? Know that thou thyself feelest its greatest torments.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Perils, and misfortunes, and want, and pain, and injury, are more or less the certain lot of every man that cometh into the world. It behooveth thee, therefore, O child of calamity! early to fortify thy mind with courage and patience, that thou mayest support, with a becoming resolution, thy allotted portion of human evil.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
The higher the sun ariseth, the less shadow doth he cast; even so the greater is the goodness, the less doth it covet praise; yet cannot avoid its rewards in honours.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
As a camel beareth labor, and heat, and hunger, and thirst, through deserts of sand, and fainteth not; so the fortitude of a man shall sustain him through all perils.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Labour not after riches first, and think thou afterwards wilt enjoy them. He who neglecteth the present moment, throweth away all that he hath. As the arrow passeth through the heart, while the warrior knew not that it was coming; so shall his life be taken away before he knoweth that he hath it.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
As a rock on the seashore he standeth firm, and the dashing of the waves disturbeth him not. He raiseth his head like a tower on a hill, and the arrows of fortune drop at his feet. In the instant of danger, the courage of his heart sustaineth him; and the steadiness of his mind beareth him out.More Akhenaton [03/12/2018 02:03:32]
Hear the words of prudence, give heed unto her counsels, and store them in thine heart; her maxims are universal, and all the virtues lean upon her; she is the guide and the mistress of human lifeMore Akhenaton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The higher the sun ariseth, the less shadow doth he cast; even so the greater is the goodness, the less doth it covet praise; yet cannot avoid its rewards in honours.More Akhenaton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
What is the source of sadness, but feebleness of the mind? What giveth it power but the want of reason? Rouse thyself to the combat, and she quitteth the field before thou strikest.More Akhenaton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To be satisfied with a little, is the greatest wisdom; and he that increaseth his riches, increaseth his cares; but a contented mind is a hidden treasure, and trouble findeth it not.More Akhenaton [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
