Disraeli Delivers

“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.”   Benjamin Disraeli

Since today is his birthday, I was inspired to offer more gems of wisdom from Benjamin Disraeli. Prime Minister of England and a favorite of Queen Victoria, he was also a popular novelist who knew his way around words and adored aphorisms:

“Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.”

“Diligence is the mother of good fortune.”

“Never complain and never explain.”

“Silence is the mother of truth.”

“The fool wonders, the wise man asks.”

‘There is no education like adversity.”

“Justice is truth in action.”

“Life is too short to be little.”

“Success is the child of audacity.”

“The secret of success is constancy to purpose.”

“How much easier to be critical than to be correct.”

“The palace is not safe when the cottage is not happy.”

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes.”

“Circumstances are beyond human control, but our conduct is in our own power.”

“You will find as you grow older that courage is the rarest of all qualities to be found in public life.”

“Through perseverance, many people win success out of what seemed destined to be certain failure.”

What a witty, pithy fellow! Entertained and emboldened, let’s all write on!
