words of wisdom
« on: August 14, 2002, 06:08:39 AM »
Post quotes in this thread that have a lot of meaning, and are good words to live by.

"Never be content with average, because you are just as close to the bottom as you are to the top."

Anyone know the quote from the movie Blow, when the dad is talking about how money isn't real and he says something like "When you're up, you think it can't get any better, and when you're down, you think it can't get any worse."  Anyone know exactly how that quote goes.

Word.  That's a really good one.  I think it's actually something like, "Money isn't really real, sometimes your up, sometimes your down, but we always made it through, even when we thought we wouldn't, it isn't real." (Something like that.)

Now I'll water the seeds with wisdom so they can grow with knowledge of self..............

***************************************

"Lead the ignorant to believe he is inferior and thus control his thinking.  If you can thereby determine what he will think.  You will not have to worry about what he will do.  You will not have to tell him to go to the back door.  He will go without being told.  If there is no back door he will have one cut for his special benefit."  Elijah Muhammad

*******************************************

"Your trying to believe in yourself.  And everytime you try to find a way to live, your mind stands in the way.  You know why that is?  It's because others have said you were bad and they made you live in bad conditions.  When a man hears that over and over and looks about him and see's that life is bad, he begins to doubt his own mind.  His feelings drag him forward, and his mind, full of what others say about him, tells him to go back.  The job in getting people to fight and have faith is in making them believe in what life has made them feel, making them feel that they're feelings are just as good as others."  Richard Wright

*****************************************

"The dismal picture painted by Western Psychology is that man is locked into the limitations of his future learning capability.  Since the Western theories believe change can only be affected through biochemical alterations or behavioral manipulations."  Na'im Akbar

***************************************

"How do people get better?  "People get better, when they start understanding that they are valuable not because they got a whole lot of money, or because somebody thinks they're sexy; they are valuable because they have been created by G-d; and G-d makes you valuable"  Mos Def

**************************************

"As long as people view themselves as physical creatures, with limited potential for growth and change, the cycle of drug abuse, mental illness, criminal and anti-social behavior, and human waste and deterioration are going to continue."  Na'im Akbar

*****************************************

"A women who is under distress, causes much damage to everything in her path, and we need to be very curteous to this women, not once, but twice."  Moorish Science Newsletter
