Hope is like the sun, which, as we journey toward it, casts the shadow of our burden behind us.
True love is like ghosts, which everyone talks about and few have seen.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Since we cannot change reality, let us change the eyes which see reality.
The opinion which other people have of you is their problem, not yours.
The more you like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique.
Never give up, and be confident in what you do. There may be tough times, but the difficulties which you face will make you more determined to achieve your objectives and to win against all the odds.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'
Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
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.
The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?
Edgar Allan Poe
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life.
God will not permit any troubles to come upon us, unless He has a specific plan by which great blessing can come out of the difficulty.
Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

Unlike a drop of water which loses its identity when it joins the ocean, man does not lose his being in the society in which he lives. Man's life is independent. He is born not for the development of the society alone, but for the development of his self.
B. R. Ambedkar
Pursue some path, however narrow and crooked, in which you can walk with love and reverence.
Henry David Thoreau
Love is like a beautiful flower which I may not touch, but whose fragrance makes the garden a place of delight just the same.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
