Was watching the polar express with my family the other night and couldn't help but to take note of the train conductors words.

Resurrecting an old thread...

“Silence is golden, and gold is up these days, so silence is a solid investment.”
― Jarod Kintz

“My two favorite colors of the rainbow are gold and leprechaun.”
― Jarod Kintz

“[Gold] gets dug out of the ground in Africa, or someplace. Then we melt it down, dig another hole, bury it again and pay people to stand around guarding it. It has no utility. Anyone watching from Mars would be scratching their head.”
― Warren Buffett

“Are you looking for gold, friend? Look around you; anything useful to you is pure gold, pure silver!”
― Mehmet Murat ildan

“The gold of life is for those bold and brave in life.”

Your worst enemy can not harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.
-Buddha

Do not dwell on the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. -Buddha

-Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the greatest relationship. -Buddha

-The mind is everything. What you think you become. -Buddha

-Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned. -Buddha

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts and made up of our thoughts. If a man speak or act with an evil thought, suffering follows him as the wheel follows the hoof of the beast that draws the wagon.... If a man speak or act with a good thought, happiness follows him like a shadow that never leaves him.” -Buddha

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."


Mother Teresa

“While experiencing happiness, we have difficulty in being conscious of it. Only when the happiness is past and we look back on it do we suddenly realize - sometimes with astonishment - how happy we had been.”

― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek


“Every one follows his own bent. Man is like a tree. You've never quarreled with a fig tree because it doesn't bear cherries, have you?”

― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek

“To think things out properly and fairly, a fellow's got to be calm and old and toothless: When you're an old gaffer with no teeth, it's easy to say: 'Damn it, boys, you mustn't bite!' But, when you've got all thirty-two teeth...”

― Nikos Kazantzakis, Zorba the Greek
Don't think of me as a cynic; I am an optimist with experience!
