Quote of the Day
I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.
Leonardo da Vinci
The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
Out of difficulties grow miracles.
Jean de la Bruyere
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
Love is the flower you've got to let grow.
You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Friendship may, and often does, grow into love, but love never subsides into friendship.

Consider a tree for a moment. As beautiful as trees are to look at, we don't see what goes on underground - as they grow roots. Trees must develop deep roots in order to grow strong and produce their beauty. But we don't see the roots. We just see and enjoy the beauty. In much the same way, what goes on inside of us is like the roots of a tree.
As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

From a small seed a mighty trunk may grow.
I had a really wonderful upbringing. We were a tight family. It was wonderful to grow up with so many siblings. We were all just a year or two apart, and we were always so supportive of each other. I learned everything from my older brother and sister and taught it to my younger sisters.
Although the life of a person is in a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God.
Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
Anthony J. D'Angelo
Harmony makes small things grow, lack of it makes great things decay.
My childhood, I wouldn't say it was bad. It helped me grow up. I stayed out of trouble. My parents taught me what's wrong and right, and knowing that I had a little brother following me, I had to make sure I was doing the right thing so he knows what's right, too. I was in the house nine days out of 10. There wasn't nothing good outside for me.
A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
Parents and schools should place great emphasis on the idea that it is all right to be different. Racism and all the other 'isms' grow from primitive tribalism, the instinctive hostility against those of another tribe, race, religion, nationality, class or whatever. You are a lucky child if your parents taught you to accept diversity.
Move out of your comfort zone. You can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when you try something new.
We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
