Have you ever experienced people going far beyond what you imaged them to be ready to do in order to reach their goals? I don´t mean pushing themselves beyond their personal limits but pushing others out of their way. Well, I have. It does not make you feel good – that´s for sure. Here are some famous quotes dealing with the reasons for the abysmal depths of humanity: power, stupidity and envy….and how to deal with it.
“The trouble with her is that she lacks the power of conversation but not the power of speech.”
“Stupidity isn´t punishable by death. If it was, there would be a hell of a population drop.”
“A lie can travel half way round the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”
“Envy is a littleness of soul, which cannot see beyond a certain point, and if it does not occupy the whole space feels itself excluded.”
“Acceptance without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western religion, rejection without proof is the fundamental characteristic of Western science.”
“Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.”
“You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough.”
