Does anyone have a list of famous life lessons, sayings, or quotes?

Here are some of my favorites:

"What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God." - Eleanor Powell

"Pleasure is very seldom found where it is sought. Our brightest blazes of gladness are commonly kindled by unexpected sparks." - Samuel Johnson

"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time." - Bertrand Russell

"Doing an injury puts you below your enemy; revenging one make you but even with him; forgiving it sets you above him." - Ben Franklin

"The person who does not read good books has no advantage over the person who can't read them." - Mark Twain

"Life is far too important to be taken seriously." - Oscar Wilde
Try a collection of Aesop's Fables.
