Things I Believe

March 23, 2006
For no reason, in no particular order, with no beginning and no end.

Disclaimer: These are not intentionally stolen from any Internet forward or book of quotes, though many such may have contributed to some points here.


  1. Everything that happens happens for the best
  2. In the long run, things will work out
  3. There is justice in the world
  4. Be true to yourself… do what you know to be right… regardless of the consequences
  5. Listen to people you respect, but ultimately decide for yourself… because only you know what’s right for you (even if eventually you turn out to be wrong)
  6. You can’t really lie to yourself; you can pretend to, but you’ll always know you’re lying
  7. Sometimes your unreasoning heart will disagree with your logical mind. Listen to your heart; it knows
  8. Exercise your mind as much as your body – an ailing mind is a greater tragedy than an ailing body
  9. You’re never to old to learn something new (you can teach an old dog new tricks)
  10. If you don’t try, you’ll never know
  11. It’s better to die trying than to live without
  12. You can run away from things you’re scared of, but you’ll never feel good about yourself until you turn around and face them
  13. The greatest achievements are those in which you overcome your own fears
  14. Never laugh at another person’s fears
  15. The most important thing in life is to spend wisely – not money, but time
  16. And the other most important thing in life is … people
  17. There is a god – and at random moments when you don’t expect it and you aren’t looking for it, you can feel it and know it’s true
  18. The world is mostly full of good people – only a minority are irretrievably evil
  19. If you love someone, there’s nothing that you can’t forgive
  20. Laughter is the worst medicine – it doesn’t cure anything but it makes everything seem much better
  21. Integrity applies as much to thought as to action … or more
  22. If you can’t do it justice, don’t do it
  23. Leave large tips in small places… you might make someone’s day
  24. Let go
  25. What you’re looking for might be right around the corner, if you’d only look around the right corner
