We cannot always control everything that happens to us in this life, but we can control how we respond. Many struggles come as problems and pressures that sometimes cause pain. Others come as temptations, trials, and tribulations.
L. Lionel Kendrick
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive.
Even Kings and emperors with heaps of wealth and vast dominion cannot compare with an ant filled with the love of God.
To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible - it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.
Barbara de Angelis

It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
J. R. R. Tolkien
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
Inside each of us, there is the seed of both good and evil. It's a constant struggle as to which one will win. And one cannot exist without the other.

If we desire a society of peace, then we cannot achieve such a society through violence.

If we desire a society that is democratic, then democracy must become a means as well as an end.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.
If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.
Vincent Van Gogh

We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
