Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations.
But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason
and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
      - Buddha

Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or turn away from them.

Cherish her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.

I know no religion but sincerity.
       - Adapted and expanded from Matthew Henry's commentary on Psalm 15

Love
And now I will show you the most excellent way:
If I speak in tongues of men and of angels, but have not love,
I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge,
and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
If I give up all I possess and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient; love is kind; it does not envy; it does not boast;
it is not proud. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking;
it is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will pass away;
where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge it will pass away.
For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
Now we see but a poor reflection, then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.
       - I Corinthians, Chapter 13

The entire law is summed up in a single command, "Love your neighbor as yourself."
       - Galatians 5:14 (NIV)

You, as much as anyone in the universe, deserve your love and respect.
       - Buddha

It is love that makes the impossible possible.
       - Indian Proverb

Humor
There are two rules for success: 1) Never tell everything you know. 2)
       - Roger H. Lincoln

Rene Descartes was on an airplane and the stewardess asked him, "Coffee, tea, juice or soda?"

Mr. Cogito-Ergo-Sum Descartes replied, "Thank you." (He's very polite.) Then he added, "I think not." And he completely disappeared.

Hasn't been seen since, I think :)
       - Bill's version of an old joke
--
Seriously
The more we give, the more we get.
       - Bill's and many others' experience
