Quote of the Day
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.
When we are no longer able to change a situation - we are challenged to change ourselves.
Viktor E. Frankl
No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.
It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
Faith is permitting ourselves to be seized by the things we do not see.
Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists... When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.
Edmond de Goncourt
Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
The philosophy of fasting calls upon us to know ourselves, to master ourselves, and to discipline ourselves the better to free ourselves. To fast is to identify our dependencies, and free ourselves from them.
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
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.
Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.
We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.
We have to stand up for what we believe in, even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves, authentic and true to who we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart.
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
None but ourselves can free our minds.
We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us. We can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we're able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
