The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.
Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.
Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.
George Bernard Shaw
A day of worry is more exhausting than a week of work.
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
Gratitude is the healthiest of all human emotions. The more you express gratitude for what you have, the more likely you will have even more to express gratitude for.
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
Earth and sky, woods and fields, lakes and rivers, the mountain and the sea, are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books.
For what I have received may the Lord make me truly thankful. And more truly for what I have not received.
A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.
Arnold H. Glasow
It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?
Leonardo da Vinci
A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.
Goodness is about character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.
It's fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure.
There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
Flowers always make people better, happier, and more helpful; they are sunshine, food and medicine for the soul.
Vulnerability is the essence of romance. It's the art of being uncalculated, the willingness to look foolish, the courage to say, 'This is me, and I'm interested in you enough to show you my flaws with the hope that you may embrace me for all that I am but, more important, all that I am not.'
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
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.
When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
