Poor is the man whose pleasures depend on the permission of another.
No man is above the law and no man is below it; nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it.
It is easier to get forgiveness than it is to secure permission.
Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission.
If it’s a good idea – go ahead and do it. It is much easier to apologize than it is to get permission.
