I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. —Edward Everett Hale
I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.

 —Pablo Picasso
A pessimist, they say, sees a glass as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty. —G. Donald Gale
Be nice to people on your way up because you'll meet them on your way down. —Wilson Mizner
You cannot be lonely if you like the person you're alone with. —Dr. Wayne Dyer
Do the things you used to talk about doing but never did. Know when to let go and when to hold on tight. Stop rushing. Don't be intimidated to say it like it is. Stop apologizing all the time. Learn to say no, so your yes has some oomph. Spend time with the friends who lift you up, and cut loose the ones who bring you down. Stop giving your power away. Be more concerned with being interested than being interesting. Be old enough to appreciate your freedom, and young enough to enjoy it. Finally, know who you are. —Kristin Armstrong
If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you. —Fred DeVito
If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. —Khalil Gibran
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
Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning how to dance in the rain. —Vivian Greene
Love is friendship that has caught fire. —Ann Landers
The heart of a volunteer is never measured in size, but by the depth of the commitment to make a difference in the lives of others. —DeAnn Hollis
Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place. —Unknown
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. —Melody Beattie
If you see something beautiful in someone, speak it! —Ruthie Lindsey
