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.
We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
The media's the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that's power. Because they control the minds of the masses.
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.
Wise men speak because they have something to say; Fools because they have to say something.
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.
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
You can never control who you fall in love with, even when you're in the most sad, confused time of your life. You don't fall in love with people because they're fun. It just happens.
Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.
My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.
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.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.
Thomas A. Edison
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world's problems at once but don't ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.
There's only one requirement of any of us, and that is to be courageous. Because courage, as you might know, defines all other human behavior. And, I believe - because I've done a little of this myself - pretending to be courageous is just as good as the real thing.
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.
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 best things in life are unexpected - because there were no expectations.
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.
