An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





If you mean to profit, learn to please.


Winston Churchill (1874-1965, British statesman, Prime Minister)


As life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time, at the peril of being not to have lived.


Oliver Wendell Holmes (1809-1894, American author, wit, poet)


I have indeed lived nominally fifty years, but deduct out of them the hours which I have lived to other people, and not to myself, and you will find me still a young fellow. For that is the only true time, which a man can properly call his own, that which he has all to himself; the rest, though in some sense he may be said to live it, is other people's time, not his.


Charles Lamb (1775-1834, British essayist, critic)


If our entire society is to be revitalized, it will depend on what we as individual Americans are willing to do on our own, in association with others, and how willing we are to extend ourselves beyond our own personal interests.


John D. Rockefeller III


An unshared life is not living. He who shares does not lessen, but greatens, his life.


Stephen S. Wise


If you have some money, share it. And if you have some time, do something worthwhile.


Jerome Stone


If you are really thankful, what do you do? You share.


W. Clement Stone (1902-2002, American businessman, author, founder of Combined Insurance Companies)


Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.


The Holy Bible (Sacred scriptures of Christians and Judaism)

Source: Matthew 25:40


For we must share, if we would keep, that blessing from above; Ceasing to give, we cease to have; such is the law of love.


Richard Chevenix Trench (1807-1886, Irish ecclesiastic, archbishop of Dublin)


Sharing what you have is more important than what you have.


Albert M. Wells
