Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.
My favorite things in life don't cost any money. It's really clear that the most precious resource we all have is time.
Your destiny is to fulfill those things upon which you focus most intently. So choose to keep your focus on that which is truly magnificent, beautiful, uplifting and joyful. Your life is always moving toward something.
Have patience. All things are difficult before they become easy.
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something.

It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.
The greatest legacy one can pass on to one's children and grandchildren is not money or other material things accumulated in one's life, but rather a legacy of character and faith.
