much to ponder

Usually I read a couple of dozen of my Mastery Foundation quotes from the quote box to find 6 or7 I want to share.

Today I took out 10 and am going to share them all. They are so pithy, it's worth reading them twice.

Ponder the wisdom and wit and insights of these.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: What  are you doing for others?
                                                                      --Martin Luther King, Jr.

"One of the symptoms of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important."
                                                                     --Bertrand Russell

"The opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth."
                                                                     --Niels Bohr

"The reason you don't understand me, Edith, is because I'm talking to you in English and you are listening in dingbat."
                                                                    --Archie Bunker

"It doesn't have to always be like this--as long as we keep talking."
                                                                    --Stephen Hawking

"It takes a very long time to become young."
                                                                    --Pablo Picasso

"Be ashamed to die until you have won some victory for Humanity."
                                                                   --Horace Mann

"Not to dream boldly may tun out to be simply irresponsible." 
                                                                   --George Leonard

"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going."
                                                                   --Beverly Sills

"Every man" (and woman) "takes the limits of his" (their) 'own field of vision for the limits of the world."
                                                                  --Arthur Schopenhauer

Those should fill your pondering appetite for a spell....
