How true, just the memories remain.


Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else's life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. —Steve Jobs
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. —Charles Hadden Spurgeon
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, 'I'm possible'! —Audrey Hepburn
Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
Once a man has made a commitment to a way of life, he puts the greatest strength in the world behind him. It's something we call heart power. Once a man has made this commitment, nothing will stop him short of success. —Vince Lombardi
No one has ever become poor by giving. —Anne Frank
There is only one happiness in life. To love and be loved. —George Sand (Amantine Aurore Lucile Dupin)
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

 —Henry David Thoreau
Hurt people, hurt people. That's how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today. Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion and cruelty with kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding fault. Love is the weapon of the future. —Yehuda Berg
May Light always surround you; 
Hope kindle and rebound you.
May your Hurts turn to Healing; 
Your Heart embrace Feeling.
May Wounds become Wisdom; 
Every Kindness a Prism.
May Laughter infect you; 
Your Passion resurrect you.
May Goodness inspire your Deepest Desires.
Through all that you Reach For, 
May your arms Never Tire.
 —D. Simone
Storms make trees take deeper roots. —Dolly Parton
When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. —Henri Nouwen
Creative people do not see things for what they are; they see them for what they can be. —Julie Israel
If character is what you do when no one is watching, then sportsmanship is that conduct with everybody watching. —Bob Ley

Walk beside me and be my friend. —Albert Camus
