Each January I choose 12 quotes, one for each month of the year, to serve as my guideposts for the coming year. Last year’s quotes can be found here: January 9, 2017 MMM

So here’s some wisdom to live by in 2018.

  • “Power is like being a lady, if you have to say you are, you aren’t.” – Margaret Thatcher
  • “Rudeness is the weak man’s imitation of strength.” – Eric Hoffer
  • “Don’t mistake politeness for lack of strength.” – Justice Sonya Sotomayor
  • “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.”– Albert Einstein
  • A liar begins with making falsehood appear like truth, and ends with making truth itself appear like falsehood.” -William Shenstone
  • “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.” – Mark Twain
  • “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” - Aldous Huxley 
  • “Wise men speak because they have something to say. Fools because they have to say something.” – Plato
  • “None are so empty as those who are full of themselves.” – Benjamin Wichcote
  • “If your only tool is a hammer, then every problem looks like a nail.” – Abraham Maslow
  • “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” -Eleanor Roosevelt
  • First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.  – Martin Niemolle

Happy New Year – may 2018 be a year of standing up and speaking out.
