Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
What if you gave someone a gift, and they neglected to thank you for it - would you be likely to give them another? Life is the same way. In order to attract more of the blessings that life has to offer, you must truly appreciate what you already have.
Happiness, true happiness, is an inner quality. It is a state of mind. If your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is at peace, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world can give - pleasure, possessions, power - but lack peace of mind, you can never be happy.
On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up? The answer is: both.
I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
Never, never, never give up.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
To have faith doesn't mean you get any less frustrated when you don't do your best, but you know that it's not life and death. Take what you're given, and when you continue to work hard, you will see results. That will give you the confidence you need to keep going.
Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books - especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day.
Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.
Karma is experience, and experience creates memory, and memory creates imagination and desire, and desire creates karma again. If I buy a cup of coffee, that's karma. I now have that memory that might give me the potential desire for having cappuccino, and I walk into Starbucks, and there's karma all over again.
Blessed are those who give without remembering and take without forgetting.
We need to give each other the space to grow, to be ourselves, to exercise our diversity. We need to give each other space so that we may both give and receive such beautiful things as ideas, openness, dignity, joy, healing, and inclusion.
Max de Pree
Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.
Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it.
By taking the time to stop and appreciate who you are and what you've achieved - and perhaps learned through a few mistakes, stumbles and losses - you actually can enhance everything about you. Self-acknowledgment and appreciation are what give you the insights and awareness to move forward toward higher goals and accomplishments.
Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.
Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.
I only really and truly fully relax on my own. Give me a sun lounger, a pool and a sea view, and I'm happy.
Survival can be summed up in three words - never give up. That's the heart of it really. Just keep trying.
Women need real moments of solitude and self-reflection to balance out how much of ourselves we give away.
Barbara de Angelis
If you are happy, you can give happiness. If you don't love yourself and if you are unhappy with yourself, you can't give anything else but that.
John F. Kennedy
