Pass It On®

Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught.

Today, give yourself permission to be outrageously kind, irrationally warm, improbably generous. I promise it will be a blast. —Sasha Dichter
I don't want to live in the kind of world where we don't look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I can't change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. —Charles de Lint

To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life. —John Burroughs
To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness. —Robert Muller

Remember there's no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end. —Scott Adams

Now, feel. I am thee and thou art me and all of one is the other. And feel now. Thou hast no heart but mine. —Ernest Hemingway
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn. —John Muir
Trade your expectation for appreciation and the world changes for you. —Anthony Robbins
I didn't lose the gold. I won the silver. —Michelle Kwan
