Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and a richness to life that nothing else can bring. Who, being loved, is poor?  —Oscar Wilde
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. —Anaïs Nin
There comes a time in the spiritual journey when you start making choices from a very different place. And if a choice lines up so that it supports truth, health, happiness, wisdom and love, it’s the right choice.  —Angeles Arrien
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand. —Woodrow Wilson
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. —Helen Keller
All things are bound together. All things connect. Whatever happens to the Earth happens to the children of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. —Chief Seattle
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve. —Albert Schweitzer
The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words. —Rachel Naomi Remen
One of the great ironies of life is this: he or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served. —Gordon B. Hinckley
Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize. —Elizabeth Harrison
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great. —Mark Twain
You are what you give; not what you are given. —Sir David Tang
The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety. —Felix Mendelssohn
We can each define ambition and progress for ourselves. The goal is to work toward a world where expectations are not set by the stereotypes that hold us back, but by our personal passion, talents and interests. —Sheryl Sandberg
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. —e. e. cummings
Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness. —George Sand (Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin)
