Benjamin Disraeli

“The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotations.”

- Disraeli

 

You may be wondering why I have lots of Disraeli quotations on my site. Well, it's because I was named after him, apparently.

Here's some of the stuff he had to say:

“Nurture your mind with great thoughts, for you will never go any higher than you think.”

“The secret of success in life is for a man to be ready for his opportunity when it comes.”

“The secret of success is constancy of purpose.”

“Success is the child of audacity.”

“Next to knowing when to seize an opportunity, the most important thing in life is to know when to forego an advantage.”

“The more extensive a man's knowledge of what has been done, the greater will be his power of knowing what to do.”

“Seeing much, suffering much, and studying much are the three pillars of learning.”

“As a rule, he -or she- who has the most information will have the greatest success in life.”

“Nothing can resist the human will that will stake even its existence on its stated purpose.”

“Never apologise for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologise for the truth.”

“The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotations.”
