Something many politicians and journalists should practice.


The greatest leaders are not necessarily the ones who do the greatest things. They are the ones that inspire others to do great things. —Ronald Reagan
I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help. There is no mistaking love…it is the common fiber of life, the flame that heats our soul, energizes our spirit and supplies passion to our lives. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. —African Proverb
Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow. You have set yourselves a difficult task, but you will succeed if you persevere; and you will find a joy in overcoming obstacles. Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. —Helen Keller
It is the province of knowledge to speak and it is the privilege of wisdom to listen. —Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. —Steve Maraboli
What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. —George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; choosing what is right over what is fun, fast, or easy; and choosing to practice our values rather than simply professing them. —Brené Brown
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light. —Albert Schweitzer
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them become what they are capable of being. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. —Jane Goodall
Love is always bestowed as a gift—freely, willingly, and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved, we love to love. —Dr. Leo Buscaglia
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. —John R. Wooden
The strongest of all warriors are these two—Time and Patience. —Leo Tolstoy
Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can't put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don't overlook life's small joys while searching for the big ones. —H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
