Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
Henry David Thoreau
"I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said, than regretting not doing what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like if I'd just been myself."

"I see my body as an instrument, rather than an ornament."
The best teacher is the one who suggests rather than dogmatizes,and inspires his listener with the wish to teach himself.
William Arthur Ward
Humility is our connection with our own fundamental Being,
which has certain qualities:
Acceptance of what is, rather than complaints of 'poor me' or 'why me?
'Openness, rather than preoccupation with 'me'
Gratefulness, rather than resentment for what has happened to 'me'
Generosity, rather than possessiveness
Modesty, rather than the self-importance of 'me'
Forgiveness, rather than blame of others of ourselves
Trust, rather than insecurity and doubt.
Kabir Helminski in 'The Knowing Heart'
You more often recognize your inadequacies rather than your strengths.
James E. Faust
Rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.
Choose to love rather than hate,
Choose to smile rather than frown,
Choose to build rather than destroy,
Choose to persevere rather than quit,
Choose to praise rather than gossip,
Choose to heal rather than wound,
Choose to give rather than grasp,
Choose to go rather than delay,
Choose to forgive rather than curse,
Choose to pray rather than despair.
Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical
It is impractical because it is a descending spiral
ending in destruction for all.
It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent
rather than win his understanding;
it seeks to annihilate
rather than to convert.
Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred
rather than love.
Martin Luther King
It is quality rather than quantity that matters.
Lucius Annaeus Seneca

What I liked about Dan Rather is this exchange with Nixon in 1974 after
Rather elbowed an ABC reporter to ask a news conference question.
"Are you running for something?" Nixon asked.
"No, sir, Mr. President," Rather shot back.
Dan Rather is also the reporter who told this country about
More than 20 years ago.
What Miss Knox actually said.
“I know that I didn’t type them," says Knox.
"However, the information in those is correct.”
