Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.
Love for the joy of loving, and not for the offerings of someone else’s heart.
Trouble is part of your life – if you don’t share it, you don’t give the person who loves you a chance to love you enough.
Don’t let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.
Richard L. Evans
The strength of a woman is not measured by the impact that all her hardships in life have had on her; but the strength of a woman is measured by the extent of her refusal to allow those hardships to dictate her and who she becomes.
C. JoyBell C.
I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
There comes a point when you either embrace who and what you are, or condemn yourself to be miserable all your days. Other people will try to make you miserable; don’t help them by doing the job yourself.
Laurell K. Hamilton
Fortunately analysis is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist.
Slowly … the truth is dawning upon women, and still more slowly upon men, that woman is no stepchild of nature, no Cinderella of fate to be dowered only by fairies and the Prince; but that for her and in her, as truly as for and in man, life has wrought its great experiences, its master attainments, its supreme human revelations of the stuff of which worlds are made.
Anna Garlin Spencer
Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.
Learn to greet your friends with a smile; they carry too many frowns in their own hearts to be bothered with yours.
Mary Allette Ayer
We don’t see things the way they are. We see them the way WE are.
Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul.
The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.
The creation of something new is not accomplished by the intellect but by the play instinct acting from inner necessity. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves.
C J Jung
Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results.
Unless you’re willing to have a go, fail miserably, and have another go, success won’t happen.
The only journey is the journey within.
Rainer Maria Rilke
The future belongs to those of us still willing to get our hands dirty.
Only the wisest and the stupidest of men never change.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
