Pass It On®

The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself he becomes wise.

Very beautifully put... Mind if I repost this to facebook with your name as author?


You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you. —Frederick Buechner
An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break. —Chinese Proverb
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. —Alfred D. Souza
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are. —Marianne Williamson
Wisdom is knowing we are all One. Love is what it feels like and compassion is what it acts like. —Ethan Walker III
Your present circumstances don’t determine where you can go; they merely determine where you start. —Nido Qubein
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. —Nelson Henderson
It's faith that will take you through, and determination that will drive you. —Jonathan Anthony Burkett
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. —Helen Keller
Fear grows out of the things we think; it lives in our minds. Compassion grows out of the things we are, and lives in our hearts. —Barbara Garrison
Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity. —Pema Chödrön
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity. —Benjamin Franklin
This above all-to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as night follows day, thou canst not then be false to any man. —William Shakespeare
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
