Quote of the Day
Immature love says: 'I love you because I need you.' Mature love says 'I need you because I love you.'
Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.
The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas A. Edison
In my deepest, darkest moments, what really got me through was a prayer. Sometimes my prayer was 'Help me.' Sometimes a prayer was 'Thank you.' What I've discovered is that intimate connection and communication with my creator will always get me through because I know my support, my help, is just a prayer away.
Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words 'for ever.' But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing, such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
You better cut the pizza in four pieces because I'm not hungry enough to eat six.
The past always looks better than it was. It's only pleasant because it isn't here.
Finley Peter Dunne
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything - all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.
Thich Nhat Hanh
I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
Robert A. Heinlein
The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
