Quote of the Day
Sometimes we may ask God for success, and He gives us physical and mental stamina.

He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals.
David A. Bednar
Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, allowing us to do things more quickly and efficiently.

Find your self-respect now. Don't dumb yourselves down. Think of yourself as capable and worthy of finding a guy who is going to respect you, too.

Morality is not the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.

Charity bestowed upon those who are worthy of it is like good seed sown on a good soil that yields an abundance of fruits. But alms given to those who are yet under the tyrannical yoke of the passions are like seed deposited in a bad soil. The passions of the receiver of the alms choke, as it were, the growth of merits.
To be really great in little things, to be truly noble and heroic in the insipid details of everyday life, is a virtue so rare as to be worthy of canonization.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Being a gentleman is a worthy goal.
Self-worth comes from one thing - thinking that you are worthy.

Muhammad Ali Jinnah
O wise man! Give your wealth only to the worthy and never to others. The water of the sea received by the clouds is always sweet.
It's not our job to play judge and jury, to determine who is worthy of our kindness and who is not. We just need to be kind, unconditionally and without ulterior motive, even - or rather, especially - when we'd prefer not to be.
Instead of being concerned that you have no office, be concerned to think how you may fit yourself for office. Instead of being concerned that you are not known, seek to be worthy of being known.
I think one great tip is that you should always love yourself. If you don't love yourself, take care of yourself, cater to yourself and that little inner voice, you will really not be very worthy of being with someone else, because you won't be the best version of you.
Kimora Lee Simmons
It is a full time job being honest one moment at a time, remembering to love, to honor, to respect. It is a practice, a discipline, worthy of every moment.
