Sage Quotes (1-10):

  1. Demand the best for yourself. If you don’t, no one else will.
  2. You only have to look around you to see that the lunatics are running the asylum.
  3. Jobs that no longer need doing can’t be protected. Doing work for its own sake is pointless.
  4. We live in a world where the lives of the many are being subjected to the tyranny of the few.
  5. Beware the zealots imposing upon us their worldview. They’re working in their best interests, not yours. 
  6. No country has ever taxed its way to prosperity. Excessive taxation acts as a disincentive to hard work and enterprise.
  7. Don’t think of it as the end. Think of it as the beginning of a new chapter. A new experience. The next ride on the latest attraction. 
  8. If your answer’s No, then it’s No. No is a complete sentence. There’s no obligation on you to explain why. Just say No and move on.
  9. Predators are predators and will use any means available to gain access to their target victims. To believe otherwise would be naive. 
  10. Beware the conversational bullies. Those people who are determined to dismiss your opinions as being somewhat inferior to their own.

Sage Quotes (11-20):

  1. How you talk to yourself will dictate how you feel about yourself. So, talk positively. Focus on the good things you can offer the world.
  2. The future is an endless stream of opportunities which you can choose to take, or not, and you can make your life whatever you want it to be.
  3. Never assume other people will be working in your interests. They won’t. They’ll be working in their own interests. You should do the same.
  4. If politicians have the courage to tackle the issues that really matter to people, they might be surprised at just how much people start getting behind them.
  5. People have political power if they stick together and act in numbers large enough to frighten politicians. No sane government will ignore real people’s power. 
  6. Never apologise, and never explain because your apology will never be enough. If you’ve fallen foul of the mob, there’s no road to redemption, however contrite you try to be.
  7. The problem today is that sensible people say nothing when they should say something. If tyranny is not challenged, it takes hold and once it’s taken hold, we’re all in trouble. 
  8. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. You’re not living their life and they’re not living yours. You are unique and your value to this world is you being the best version of yourself. 
  9. Over-tax the productive part of the economy and the result will be stagnation. Why bother taking business risks if you’ll be penalised should you succeed? Why would that make sense?
  10. We are governed by a set of clowns. The depressing thing is that there’s another set of clowns waiting in the wings. So, whatever happens, life is unlikely to improve for ordinary working people.

Sage Quotes (21-25):

  1. If you’re a politician and you’re incapable of truly appreciating the plight of the poor and ordinary working people, then don’t try engaging with such people as a PR stunt. You will only ever look clueless.
  2. Before deciding to go to university, ask yourself this. What will you gain by going? How will it better position you to get a job you’d want? The benefits of a university education are becoming marginal at best. 
  3. It may be a concern for you but unless it interrupts money and power then politicians won’t regard it as a problem and they’re unlikely to do anything about it, regardless of any suggestions they may make to the contrary.
  4. A true friend is someone you could call at 3 o’clock in the morning if you were in trouble with the reasonable expectation that they’d be happy to help you. Everyone else is just people you know with varying degrees of familiarity.
  5. The things of the greatest value in life cannot be bought. The love of family and old friends. The arms of your children around your neck. A good laugh with the people who matter most to you. These are things you cannot buy with gold.

Sage Quotes (26-30):

  1. The Media adheres unreservedly to intellectual fashion and groupthink. If you’re looking for a balanced analysis of those things that are having a major impact on our culture, you’re wasting your time looking for it in the mainstream media. 
  2. It seems like we’re seeing the total collapse of authority. A failure resulting from politicians lacking the courage to do what they know is necessary. They fear hostile media coverage more than they fear accountability to the electorate.
  3. Before you attempt to have fun at someone else’s expense, ask yourself this. How would you feel if you were on the receiving end of what you’re about to say or do? It may be a bit of fun for you, but will the other person see it that way? It’s only fun if it’s fun for everyone.
  4. Hiring managers are not there to be a solution to your problems. If you really want the job, you must demonstrate to them that you can be a solution to their problems. They don’t care about your hopes and dreams, they care about getting things done and whether you can help them do so. 
  5. Thieves can now rob you from the comfort of their own homes. Modern telecommunications make it easy for scammers. That together with people’s gullibility and their willingness to assume that any request from someone is genuine. View every request involving money with a sceptical eye.
