Encouraging young people to believe in themselves and find their own voice whether it's through writing, drama or art is so important in giving young people a sense of self-worth.
Together with a culture of work, there must be a culture of leisure as gratification. To put it another way: people who work must take the time to relax, to be with their families, to enjoy themselves, read, listen to music, play a sport.
The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.
There are just some really beautiful people in the world. When you're walking down the street, or you're at a restaurant, someone catches your eye because they have their own look. It goes way beyond what they're wearing - into their mannerisms, the way they smile, or just the way they hold themselves.
For when they see the people swarm into the streets, and daily wet to the skin with rain, and yet cannot persuade them to go out of the rain, they do keep themselves within their houses, seeing they cannot remedy the folly of the people.
The great person is ahead of their time, the smart make something out of it, and the blockhead, sets themselves against it.
When you are older you will understand how precious little things, seemingly of no value in themselves, can be loved and prized above all price when they convey the love and thoughtfulness of a good heart.
Know this, if someone has cheated on you who truly loves you, they have hurt themselves as much as they have hurt you.
Jada Pinkett Smith

Countries such as the U.S. and Britain have taken it upon themselves to decide for us in the developing world, even to interfere in our domestic affairs and to bring about what they call regime change.
The only solutions that are ever worth anything are the solutions that people find themselves.
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
Robert M. Hutchins
The jealous are troublesome to others, but a torment to themselves.
People can try to reinvent themselves. I don't think you can really change who you are, though, because who you are is pretty much where you came from and what you've done up to now.
Surround yourself with people who take their work seriously, but not themselves, those who work hard and play hard.
In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves; and under the rule of a just God, cannot long retain it.

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it's better than college. People should educate themselves - you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I'd written a thousand stories.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
