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.
Our entire life - consists ultimately in accepting ourselves as we are.
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.
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.
God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
Respect for ourselves guides our morals, respect for others guides our manners.
It is not easy to find happiness in ourselves, and it is not possible to find it elsewhere.
Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
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
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
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.
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.
What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.
We can each define ambition and progress for ourselves. The goal is to work toward a world where expectations are not set by the stereotypes that hold us back, but by our personal passion, talents and interests.
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.
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.
We must free ourselves of the hope that the sea will ever rest. We must learn to sail in high winds.
We pledge ourselves to liberate all our people from the continuing bondage of poverty, deprivation, suffering, gender and other discrimination.
Our task must be to free ourselves by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
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.
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds!
True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
