Something many politicians and journalists should practice.


If you shift your focus from yourself to others, extend your concern to others, and cultivate the thought of caring for the well being of others, then this will have the immediate effect of opening up your life and helping you to reach out. —The 14th Dalai Lama
Just being there for someone can sometimes bring hope when all seems hopeless. —Dave G Llewellyn
Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
The wise do not buy into other people’s perceptions of who they are and what they are capable of. Instead, they bypass a person’s public persona and see who they are in their highest expression. When you see actions taken with integrity, instead of words only, you will then know a soul’s worth. —Shannon L. Alder
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. —Pablo Picasso

Family: like branches on a tree, we all grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. —Unknown

Without ambition one starts nothing. Without work one finishes nothing. The prize will not be sent to you. You have to win it. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart. —Anne Frank
All our dreams can come true; if we have the courage to pursue them. —Walt Disney
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. —Aesop
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. —Neil deGrasse Tyson
May we think of freedom not as the right to do as we please, but as the opportunity to do what is right. —Peter Marshall
Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living. —Anonymous
People can do whatever they want if they just set their heart to it, and just never give up, and just go out there and do it. —Bethany Hamilton
