Things to Think About: What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing

Things to Think About

By Pepper de Callier

"What is a cynic? A man who knows the price of everything and the value of nothing." Oscar Wilde 

What a wonderful way to sum up short-term thinking. It’s the kind of thinking that ends up costing much more in the long-run when you have to pay the price for poor quality.  Choosing to focus on value is an investment in the future.  Whether it’s an investment of time, money, effort, or all three, choosing value speaks volumes about the person who is willing to forego  the immediacy of price.

Till next time…

Things to Think About (By Pepper de Callier)
Who you are speaks so loudly, I can’t hear a word you’re saying
The secret to success is to maintain enthusiasm between failures
When you are the anvil, hold you still.  But, when you are the hammer, strike your fill
Success is getting what you want.  Happiness is wanting what you get
I am not an Athenian, I am not a Greek, I am a citizen of the world
When I’m afraid of losing, I never win
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear
Our greatest freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, ... 
How hard it is, sometimes, to trust the evidence of one's senses! How reluctantly the mind consents to reality.
We don't see things as they are. We see things as we are
It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves 
If you believe everything you read, better not read 
People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care
Winning is as much about attitude as aptitude especially when the chips are down 
The human mind treats a new idea the same way the body treats a strange protein; it rejects it.
Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd 
If you can't explain it to a six-year-old, you don't understand it yourself
We don’t regret the risks we took and failed. We regret the risks we failed to take
