Quote of the Day
- Page 2
Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.
If you are the kind of person who is waiting for the 'right' thing to happen, you might wait for a long time. It's like waiting for all the traffic lights to be green for five miles before starting the trip.
You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don't win, at least you can be satisfied that you've tried. If you don't accept failure as a possibility, you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try - you don't take the risk.
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.
Be willing to step outside your comfort zone once in a while; take the risks in life that seem worth taking. The ride might not be as predictable if you'd just planted your feet and stayed put, but it will be a heck of a lot more interesting.
Edward Whitacre, Jr.
For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, 'It might have been'.
John Greenleaf Whittier
Falling in love, romance, matters of the heart - when you fall in love, on some biochemical level you know there is a chance it won't work out. It's ingrained in us that if you take such an enormous risk on someone with your heart that it might not pay off. I gamble all my chips and I might actually lose everything.
It's really important to share the idea that being different might feel like a problem at the time, but ultimately diversity is a strength.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.
Passion is what gets you through the hardest times that might otherwise make strong men weak, or make you give up.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy, the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother's love.
Thomas Chandler Haliburton
Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.
There will be days when I walk in an arena and people will cheer and then there might be days when I walk in an arena and people might boo, but it all sounds the same to me because it's all just noise that lets me know that I'm relevant.
The war... was an unnecessary condition of affairs, and might have been avoided if forebearance and wisdom had been practiced on both sides.
Robert E. Lee
Survival is not about being fearless. It's about making a decision, getting on and doing it, because I want to see my kids again, or whatever the reason might be.
It is generally recognised that women are better than men at languages, personal relations and multi-tasking, but less good at map-reading and spatial awareness. It is therefore not unreasonable to suppose that women might be less good at mathematics and physics.
Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.
I would never die for my beliefs because I might be wrong.
My very best friend died in a car accident when I was 16 years old. That was the hardest blow emotionally that I have ever had to endure. Suddenly, you realize tomorrow might not come. Now I live by the motto, 'Today is what I have.'
You've got to be very careful if you don't know where you are going, because you might not get there.
You might not make it to the top, but if you are doing what you love, there is much more happiness there than being rich or famous.
I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom.
Simone de Beauvoir
This might be the first generation where kids are dying at a younger age than their parents and it's related primarily to the obesity problem.
Grief is perhaps an unknown territory for you. You might feel both helpless and hopeless without a sense of a 'map' for the journey. Confusion is the hallmark of a transition. To rebuild both your inner and outer world is a major project.
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
