Quote of the Day
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy
If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit.
William J. Clinton
You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.
Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.
Opportunities are like sunrises. If you wait too long, you miss them.
William Arthur Ward
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
If you're trying to achieve, there will be roadblocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.
If you love someone, set them free. If they come back they're yours; if they don't they never were.
Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.
I know who I am. I am not perfect. I'm not the most beautiful woman in the world. But I'm one of them.
Mary J. Blige
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.
Culture makes people understand each other better. And if they understand each other better in their soul, it is easier to overcome the economic and political barriers. But first they have to understand that their neighbour is, in the end, just like them, with the same problems, the same questions.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
The moments of happiness we enjoy take us by surprise. It is not that we seize them, but that they seize us.
Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have - life itself.
All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
Pope Paul VI
A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them.
John C. Maxwell
Martin Luther King, Jr.
