    Several good ones precede/follow that one in Hamlet:

    And these few precepts in thy memory
    Look thou character. Give thy thoughts no tongue,
    Nor any unproportioned thought his act.
    Be thou familiar but by no means vulgar.
    Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
    Grapple them unto thy soul with hoops of steel,
    But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
    Of each new-hatched, unfledged comrade. Beware
    Of entrance to a quarrel, but being in,
    Bear ’t that th' opposèd may beware of thee.
    Give every man thy ear but few thy voice.
    Take each man’s censure but reserve thy judgment.
    Costly thy habit as thy purse can buy,
    But not expressed in fancy—rich, not gaudy,
    For the apparel oft proclaims the man,
    And they in France of the best rank and station
    Are of a most select and generous chief in that.
    Neither a borrower nor a lender be,
    For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
    And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.
    This above all: to thine own self be true,
    And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.

      Maybe it got lost in translation; it makes more sense now.

          How beautiful it is to stay silent and calm when someone expects you to be enraged!!!

                At the end of the day all we have is who we are

                Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication

                I get along with everyone except those I don't get along with

                If in doubt, do without

                Nothing worth having comes easy

                      "The truth is, sir, that men do what their power permits them to do. We are no different from the Pharaohs or the Mongols: the difference is only that when we kill people we feel compelled to pretend that it is for some higher cause. It is this pretence of virtue, I promise you, that will never be forgiven by history."

                      From: Sea of Poppies by Amitav Gosh
                      We should care for each other more than we care for ideas, or else we will end up killing each other.

                          "We can never judge the lives of others, because each person knows only their own pain and renunciation. It's one thing to feel that you are on the right path, but it's another to think that yours is the only path.”
