You were not born a winner, and you were not born a loser. You are what you make yourself be.
Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help.
Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.
William Arthur Ward
Don't take life to seriously because you'll never get out alive.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine,
we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our
presence automatically liberates others.
~ Nelson Mandela
Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny--he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered,
some work has to be completed. You are not here accidentally--you are here meaningfully. There is a purpose behind you.
The whole intends to do something through you.
Life is 10% of what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.
Children will not remember you for the material things you provided but for the feeling that you cherished them.
Richard L. Evans
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Gordon B. Hinckley
The steeper the mountain the harder the climb the better the view from the finishing line.
We must become the change we want to see.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
Give it all you've got because you never know if there's going to be a next time.
To dream of the person you would like to be is to waste the person you are.
The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.
The truth of the matter is that you always know the right thing to do. The hard part is doing it.
General H. Norman Schwarzkopf
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Watch your thoughts, they become your words. Watch your words, they become your actions.
Watch your actions, they become your habits. Watch your habits, they become your character. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the
depths. These persons have an appreciation,
a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Seize the day, put no trust in tomorrow!
Carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero!
You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Our friends should be companions who inspire us, who help us rise to our best.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Within us are powers and abilities that are like invisible sparks waiting to be fanned into brilliant flames.
H. Spencer Lewis
When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfull...y upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.
Today, give a stranger one of your smiles. It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.
~ Oscar Wilde
Those who dwell among the beauties and mysteries of the earth are never alone or weary of life.
~ Rachel Carson (1907-1964)
