Vision is the gift to see what others only dream.
Nothing worthwhile is ever easy!
A generous heart can not be taught. It comes from the soul.
There is no shame in failing. The shame is in not trying!
When you have come to the edge of all light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen, there will be something solid to stand on or you will be taught how to fly.
If you tame me, then we shall need each other. To me, you will be unique in all the world. To you, I shall be unique in all the world. You become responsible, forever, for what you have tamed.
We all wake up every day and at that moment decide how to live the rest of our lives.
Tuff times never last. Tuff people do!
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing to fast, and you'll eventually loose someone you love. So take to many pictures, laugh to much and love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back!
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence-
Talent will not: Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not: Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education alone will not: The world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omni potent.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the number of moments that take our breath away.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. In deed, it is the only thing that ever has.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, when the road your trudging seems all uphill, keep your spirits high for through thick and thin,you must carry on if you are to win. Life is strange with its twists and turns as everyone of us sometimes learns. It challenges us to often give up when we could have captured the victor's cup. So turn your failures inside out, press them on past fear and doubt. Never mind if things hold you back a bit, you'll come out on top but you mustn't quit.
We are not human beings having spiritual experiences. We are spiritual beings having human experiences.
If you can conceive it you can do it!
If you have a talent that is Gods gift to you. If you use that talent that is your gift to God.
What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know it's what we know for sure that just ain't so.
The greatest of all mistakes is to do nothing, because you think you can do only a little.
There will be difficulties in life. There always are.
We are the sum of all the moments in our life.
Be true to your dream. Don't stop until you achieve it!
I will study and get ready and some day my chance will come.
What kind of a peace do we seek. I'm talking about genuine peace. The kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living. Not merely peace in our time, peace in all time. Our problems are man made therefore, they can be solved by man. For in the final analysis our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet, we all breath the same air, we all cherish our children's future and we are all mortal.
Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.
When life gives you a lemon, make lemonade.
Every obstacle presents an opportunity.
Never give up and never stop believing.
God hears all prayers even though sometimes the answer is no.
If you get the chance to dance or sit it out I hope you dance.
Never settle for the path of least resistance.
Never take one single breath for granted.
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.
Attitude is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company...a church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes.
Things turn out the best for people who make the best out of the way things turn out.
