By fighting you never get enough, but by yielding you get more than you expected.

How to Win Friends and Influence People
No matter how much the cats fight, there always seem to be plenty of kittens
It is the fight alone that pleases us, not the victory
In a battle all you need to make you fight is a little hot blood and the knowledge that it's more dangerous to lose than to win
The man who fights too long against dragons becomes a dragon himself
When the fight begins within himself,
A man 's worth something.

Men and Women. Bishop Blougram's Apology


On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
