Good Morning Vietnam Quotes

Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.

Greenville Kleisser

Life only gives us exactly what we ask for, both good and bad. The real challenge is in understanding the subtle ways in which we ask.

Bryant McGill

Good theater anywhere is good for theater everywhere.

Frank Schneeberger

Some material things make my life more enjoyable; many, however, would not. I like having an expensive private plane, but owning a half-dozen homes would be a burden. Too often, a vast collection of possessions ends up possessing its owner. The asset I most value, aside from health, is interesting, diverse, and long-standing friends. My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest. Both my children and I won what I call the ovarian lottery. (For starters, the odds against my 1930 birth taking place in the U.S. were at least 30 to 1. My being male and white also removed huge obstacles that a majority of Americans then faced.) My luck was accentuated by my living in a market system that sometimes produces distorted results, though overall it serves our country well. Ive worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves the lives of others on a battlefield with a medal, rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes from parents, but rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions. In short, fates distribution of long straws is wildly capricious. The reaction of my family and me to our extraordinary good fortune is not guilt, but rather gratitude. Were we to use more than 1% of my claim checks on ourselves, neither our happiness nor our well-being would be enhanced. In contrast, that remaining 99% can have a huge effect on the health and welfare of others. That reality sets an obvious course for me and my family: Keep all we can conceivably need and distribute the rest to society, for its needs. My pledge starts us down that course.

Warren Edward Buffett

A good heart is better than all the heads in the world.

Edward George Earl Bulwer Lytton

A good book is never exhausted. It goes on whispering to you from the wall.

Anatole Broyard

So many read good books and get nothing, because they read them over cursorily, slightly, superficially.

Thomas Brooks

Some people like to talk of intuition as a way of knowing truth; that gut reactions are as good as evidence based facts. Its a really silly way of thinking...

Derren Victor Brown

What are the American ideals? They are the development of the individual for his own and the common good; the development of the individual through liberty, and the attainment of the common good through democracy and social justice.

Louis Dembitz Brandeis

No kind action ever stops with itself. One kind action leads to another. Good example is followed. A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees. The greatest work that kindness does to others is that it makes them kind themselves.

Amelia Earhart

Prosperity can change man's nature; and seldom is any one cautious enough to resist the effects of good fortune.

Curtis Rufus Quintus

A good picture is equivalent to a good deed.

Vincent van Gogh

Good things come in good time.

Wiz Khalifa

Good leaders make people feel that they're at the very heart of things, not at the periphery.

Warren G. Bennis

You are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.

Tom Brokaw

There is far more danger of harm than there is hope of good in any radical changes.

John Calvin Coolidge Jr.

Guide the people by law, subdue them by punishment; they may shun crime, but will be void of shame. Guide them by example, subdue them by courtesy; they will learn shame, and come to be good.

Confucius

Design, in its broadest sense, is the enabler of the digital era - it's a process that creates order out of chaos, that renders technology usable to business. Design means being good, not just looking good.

Clement Mok

Good design begins with honesty, asks tough questions, comes from collaboration and from trusting your intuition.

Freeman Thomas

Let France have good mothers, and she will have good sons.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people

Proverbs 11:3

One must have a good memory to be able to keep the promises that one makes.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Life yields only to the conqueror. Never accept what can be gained by giving in. You will be living off stolen goods, and your muscles will atrophy.

Dag Hammarskjld

All stories have a beginning, a middle and an ending, and if they're any good, the ending is a beginning.

James Clavell
