Quotes for Inspiration June/July (06)

Singer Tina Turner has said "Sometimes you’ve got to let everything go, purge yourself. I did that, I had nothing, but I had my freedom. Whatever it is that’s bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free, your true creativity, your true self comes out." If parents can instill this in themselves and in their children they are one-up on life's lessons.

I will begin to speak, when I have that to say which had not better be unsaid.
—Cato the Younger

Nothing more enhances authority than silence. It is the crowning virtue of the strong, the refuge of the weak, the modesty of the proud, the pride of the humble, the prudence of the wise, and the sense of fools.
