Today's Thought: “It is better to sleep on things beforehand than lie awake about them afterward.” ―Baltasar Gracian
A friend of mine posted this quote on Facebook today. I thought it was good advice, and decided to do a little research on the author of the quote, Baltasar Gracian.
I found this on Wikipedia: "Baltasar Gracián y Morales, SJ (January 8, 1601 – December 6, 1658) was a Spanish jesuit and baroque prose writer. He was born in Belmonte, near Calatayud." I found some more of his sayings, and these were a few that caught my attention:
Never open the door to a lesser evil, for other and greater ones invariably slink in after it.
Work is the price which is paid for reputation.
The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
A single lie destroys a whole reputation of integrity.
Respect yourself if you would have others respect you.
