Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life–-learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
~ Robert Fulghum
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do
the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give
~ Anne Lamott
There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won’t anymore. . . And who always will. So don’t worry about people from your past, there’s a reason why they didn’t make it to your future.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
~ Dr. Seuss
A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.
~ John Lubbbock
As we grow up, we put away our laughter and our silliness and our childish noises, the great sensory hilariousness of our young lives. We pick up a few notions about proper behavior, like what books to read and how to go about getting married and buying a home and being polite and having cocktail parties . . . And the next thing you know, the little child – who was also an enormously alive sensory apparatus – is just another boring adult going to work in a seersucker suit with a briefcase.
~ John Rosenthal
Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.
~ Isak Denesen
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
~ Sir Winston Churchill
Vitality shows not only in the ability to persist, but in the ability to start over.
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
I deeply and profoundly love, accept and respect myself, just the way I am.
Parties who want milk should not seat themselves on a stool in the middle of the field in hope that the cow will back up to them.~ Elbert Hubbard
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
People usually fail when they are on the verge of success. So give as much care to
the end as to the beginning.
Forgiveness is the economy of the heart . . . forgiveness saves the expense of anger,
the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.
~ Hannah More
It is very wrong for people to feel deeply sad when they lose some money, yet when they waste the precious moments of their lives they do not have the slightest feeling of repentance.
~ Dalai Lama
The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.
~ Michelangelo Buonarroti
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
~ Helen Keller
Just don’t give up on trying to do what you really want to do. Where this is love and inspiration, I don’t think you can go wrong.
~ Ella Fitzgerald
There can be no happiness if the things we believe in are different from the things we do.
~ Freya Stark
I have tried and I cannot find, either in scripture or in history, a strong-willed individual whom God used greatly until He allowed them to be hurt deeply.
~ Charles Swindoll
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal and then leap in the dark to our success.
~ Henry David Thoreau
Be, Do, Have. . .
FIRST become the person you want to BE;
then DO the things the kind of person you want to be does;
and as a natural consequence, you'll HAVE the things you want.
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things
you have long taken for granted.
~ Bertrand Russell
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
~ Marcel Proust
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear — not absence of fear.
~ Mark Twain
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
~ Mahatma Gandhi
When we encounter human suffering, it is important to respond with compassion . . . First, we must help; then, later we can talk about the causes of any tragedy. There is an Indian saying: if you are struck by a poisonous arrow, it is important first to pull it out. There is no time to ask who shot it, what sort of poison it is and so on. First handle the immediate problem, and later investigate. ~Dalai Lama
When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. And that is my religion.~ Abraham Lincoln
Life is like a garden. Quite naturally, leaves wither and flowers fade. Only if we clear the decay of the past then and there can we really enjoy the beauty of the new leaves and flowers. Likewise, we must clear the murkiness of the past bad experiences from our minds. Life is remembrance in forgetfulness. Forgive what ought to be forgiven; forget what ought to be forgotten. Let us embrace life with renewed vigor. We should be able to face every moment of life with renewed expectation, like a freshly blossomed flower.
~ Mata Amritanandamayi:
Use what talents you possess: the woods would be very silent if no birds sang there
except those that sang best.
~ Henry Van Dyke
I can't give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for
failure: Try to please everybody all the time.
~Herbert Bayard Swope
