Today, this spirit of solidarity must and will empower all of us to rebuild Haiti.
A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.
Free people, remember this maxim: we may acquire liberty, but it is never recovered if it is once lost.
What we have once enjoyed we can never lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal.

One day I looked at something in myself that I had been avoiding because it was too painful. Yet once I did, I had an unexpected surprise. Rather than self-hatred, I was flooded with compassion for myself because I realized the pain necessary to develop that coping mechanism to begin with.
That though the radiance which was once so bright be now forever taken from my sight. Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, glory in the flower. We will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it.
Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more.

Opportunity knocks only once. You never know if you'll get another opportunity.
Once you make it to your point of making it, you'll appreciate the struggle.
