William Arthur Ward Quotes

William Arthur Ward was an American writer. I love his quotes, and I hope you will love them too. All you’ve got to do is to sit down, and enjoy his great William Arthur Ward Quotes.

A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition.

A true friend knows your weaknesses but shows you your strengths; feels your fears but fortifies your faith; sees your anxieties but frees your spirit; recognizes your disabilities but emphasizes your possibilities.

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.

Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records.

Before you speak, listen.

Before you write, think.

Before you spend, earn.

Before you invest, investigate.

Before you criticize, wait.

Before you pray, forgive.

Before you quit, try.

Before you retire, save.

Before you die, give.

Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.

Curiosity is the wick in the candle of learning.

Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.

Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.

Four steps to achievement: Plan purposefully. Prepare prayerfully. Proceed positively. Pursue persistently.

God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?”

Happiness is an inside job.

Humanity either makes, or breeds, or tolerates all its afflictions.

If you can imagine it,You can achieve it.If you can dream it,You can become it.

It is wise to direct your anger towards problems – not people; to focus your energies on answers – not excuses.

Lose yourself in generous service and every day can be a most unusual day, a triumphant day, an abundantly rewarding day!

Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them.

Opportunity is often difficult to recognize; we usually expect it to beckon us with beepers and billboards.

Study while others are sleeping; work while others are loafing; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing.

The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires.

The more generous we are, the more joyous we become. The more cooperative we are, the more valuable we become. The more enthusiastic we are, the more productive we become. The more serving we are, the more prosperous we become.

The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.

To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity.

Today is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never live it again; it is the only day we have.

We can learn much from wise words, little from wisecracks, and less from wise guys.

When we seek to discover the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves.

Wise are they who have learned these truths: Trouble is temporary. Time is tonic. Tribulation is a test tube.

Wise are those who learn that the bottom line doesn’t always have to be their top priority
