Judge your success by the degree that you’re enjoying peace, health, and love.
by H. Jackson Brown Jr.
Don’t you dare lump me in with Jessup and Kendrick just because we wear the same uniform. I’m your friend and I’m telling you, I don’t think your clients belong in jail but I don’t get to make that decision! I represent the government of the United States without passion or prejudice and my client has a case! There you go. Now I want you to acknowledge that the Judge Advocate has made you aware of the possible consequences of accusing a Marine officer of a felony without proper evidence.
You do not have the right to quit trying. (The universe wobbles when you do.) You have the right to quit Toxic People. (They’re contagious.)
Dare to be imperfect and one day there will tug at your sleeve a soul mate.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Robert Louis Stevenson
In this age, which believes that there is a short cut to everything, the greatest lesson to be learned is that the most difficult way is, in the long run, the easiest.

The world judge of men by their ability in their profession, and we judge of ourselves by the same test: for it is on that on which our success in life depends.
The man who says he is willing to meet you halfway is usually a poor judge of distance.
The seat of knowledge is in the head; of wisdom, in the heart. We are sure to judge wrong, if we do not feel right.
Organisation can never be a substitute for initiative and for judgement.
I think that, as life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time at peril of being judged not to have lived.
Perhaps the enemies of liberty are such only because they judge it by its loud voice.
Only a kind person is able to judge another justly and to make allowances for his weaknesses. A kind eye, while recognizing defects, sees beyond them.
It is just as cowardly to judge an absent person as it is wicked to strike a defenseless one. Only the ignorant and narrow-minded gossip, for they speak of persons instead of things.
If we judge love by most of its effects, it resembles rather hatred than affection.
If we are to judge of love by its consequences, it more nearly resembles hatred than friendship.
