Time is valueable! We can tell what takes precedence in our lives by how much time we spend.


Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find the right road. —Dag Hammarskjold
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
Practice puts brains in your muscles.  —Samuel Snead
Take a stand for what's right. Raise a ruckus and make a change. You may not always be popular, but you'll be part of something larger and bigger and greater than yourself. —Samuel L. Jackson
I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead, but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row. —Beau Christopher Taplin
To endure is greater than to dare; to tire out the hostile fortune; to be daunted by no difficulty; to keep heart when all have lost it- who can say this is not greatness?  —William Makepeace Thackeray
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. —William Arthur Ward
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
I go to seek a Great Perhaps. —François Rabelais
In the time we have it is surely our duty to do all the good we can to all the people we can in all the ways we can.  —William Barclay
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
Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future. —Robert H. Schuller
Good manners have much to do with the emotions. To make them ring true, one must feel them, not merely exhibit them. —Amy Vanderbilt
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do. —Eleanor Roosevelt
Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them. —Orison Swett Marden
Nothing liberates our greatness like the desire to help, the desire to serve. —Marianne Williamson
