My favourite quotes

These are my top ten favourite quotes at this moment in time and very much capture my philosophy on life:

"The only death you die is the death you die every day by not living."
Norman Vaughan, Antarctic mountaineer on reaching the 10,300 ft. summit of Mt Vaughan, aged 89.

“Take care to get what you like or you will be forced to like what you get.” George Bernard Shaw

“Being humble is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.” Anonymous

"Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation..." Robert Kennedy

"Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself." Eleanor Roosevelt

“May I forget what ought to be forgotten; and recall, unfailing, all that ought to be recalled, each kindly thing, forgetting what might sting.” Mary Caroline Davies

"Imagination is more important than knowledge." Albert Einstein

"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will be fed for life." Unknown.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.’
Mark Twain

“People get disturbed not so much by events, but by the view which they take of them.” Epictetus
