It's OK to argue with your friends. Guys can do it better than girls, usually, but if you ever get into a fight with a true friend or a spouse or a boyfriend, get it out, fight, be angry for five minutes, and then move past it. Don't let it fester; don't hold a grudge. If you do, that's when it will get worse and worse.
You can't please everyone. When you're too focused on living up to other people's standards, you aren't spending enough time raising your own. Some people may whisper, complain and judge. But for the most part, it's all in your head. People care less about your actions than you think. Why? They have their own problems!
One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.
Joan of Arc
Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development and building good governance.
Yes, I guess you could say I am a loner, but I feel more lonely in a crowed room with boring people than I feel on my own.
Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.
You know what has made me the happiest I've ever been? Seeing my son and daughter graduate from college. More than wanting them to be educated, I wanted them to be nice people. To see that they have become both is just a wonderful thing.
Better to fight for something than live for nothing.
George S. Patton
Who are we? We find that we live on an insignificant planet of a humdrum star lost in a galaxy tucked away in some forgotten corner of a universe in which there are far more galaxies than people.
In my dreams, I could be a Princess, and that's what I was. Like most little girls, I believed nothing less than a Prince could make my dreams come true.
Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving.
James E. Faust
Smart phones and social media expand our universe. We can connect with others or collect information easier and faster than ever.
Champions are not the ones who always win races - champions are the ones who get out there and try. And try harder the next time. And even harder the next time. 'Champion' is a state of mind. They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than they compete to best others. Champions are not just athletes.
Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.
I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.
Vincent Van Gogh
A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself.
A truly strong person does not need the approval of others any more than a lion needs the approval of sheep.
We'd all survive if Twitter shut down for a short while during major riots. Social media isn't any more important than a train station, a road or a bus service. We don't worry about police temporarily closing those. Common sense. If riot info and fear is spreading by Facebook and Twitter, shut them off for an hour or two, then restore.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.
J. K. Rowling
Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy.
Ludwig van Beethoven
I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
Children are smarter than any of us. Know how I know that? I don't know one child with a full time job and children.
I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
