Thought-provoking quotes (1-15):

  1. Just because it’s a cliche doesn’t mean it’s not true. 
  2. No one will believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself.
  3. If your thinkin’ is stinkin’ don’t be surprised if your life is sinkin’.
  4. How people appear to be and how they are is not the same thing. 
  5. Grabbing media attention is not the same as winning hearts and minds.
  6. When you’re trying too hard to be kind, you’re probably not being kind at all.
  7. No one has a monopoly on wisdom. Most people don’t even have their fair share. 
  8. It’s nice to have qualifications but it’s much better to have a job to which you’re well-suited.
  9. Reputations are hard won but easily lost. If you have a good one, make sure you protect it. 
  10. The rich will ensure they remain rich however much it might be at the expense of the poor. 
  11. People don’t want to hear your opinion. They just want you to accept theirs without question.
  12. We view every political failure through the prism of that with which we vehemently disagree. 
  13. We all want our own way, all the time. That’s why it’s good for us to be denied it, occasionally. 
  14. To be silent is to be irrelevant. Don’t be silent and don’t be irrelevant. Make your voice heard.
  15. Some of the greatest bigots of the modern age are those who are quick to accuse others of bigotry.

Thought-provoking quotes (16-25):

  1. In today’s world, feelings matter more than truth. Pretence takes precedence over inconvenient truths. 
  2. Look after your own interests. No one cares about what’s good for you, they only care about what’s good for them. 
  3. Some people are so convinced by the virtue of their own opinion that they can’t even begin to imagine that they may be wrong. 
  4. The issue is not the silent majority, it’s the silenced majority. People are being bullied into remaining silent for fear of being cancelled.
  5. It’s a mistake to assume that the Government is your friend. It’s not. Governments act in their interest, not yours. Question everything. 
  6. Never buy discretionary items with debt. Unsecured debt is very expensive and can easily lead to you being locked into a debt spiral.
  7. Mass immigration without assimilation will lead to a breakdown in social cohesion and that would be in no one’s interests. Assimilation matters.
  8. The western world is in the grip of a collective madness the like of which we’ve never seen. If wiser heads don’t prevail, we’re all in serious trouble.
  9. If not you, then who? If you don’t make your voice heard, who will? To be silent is to be irrelevant. We don’t have to accept that which is unacceptable.
  10. Judge not through the prism of your prejudices but look closer to the real person lying beyond your first impression. People are deeper than they first appear to be.

Thought-provoking quotes (26-30):

  1. It’s never about what they say it’s about, it’s always about something else. The question is, what? Always look for the underlying motivation. Never accept anything at face value. 
  2. Just because you’re asked a question, doesn’t mean you’re obliged to provide an answer. Respond politely, of course, but you decide whether it’s in your interests to provide an answer. 
  3. You don’t have to win every argument. You can always walk away and just enjoy a little peace of mind. Your mental health is more important than wasting your energy arguing with people who will never see your point of view anyway.
  4. You’ll be judged not by the qualifications you’ve gained but by the difference you’ve made to the lives of others. It’s nice to have a few qualifications but much better to know you’ve made a difference. That’s where your real focus should be.
  5. When a media personality or politician apologises for some past transgression, the question to ask is, “Why now?” If it’s because the story was about to break anyway, then you know the apology is more about damage limitation than any real desire to make amends.
