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

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it. —Maya Angelou
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. —Beverly Sills
It is our privilege and our adventure to discover our own special light. —Mary Dunbar

The visible sign of utter love is an undying smile. —Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. —Henri Nouwen
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. —Henry David Thoreau

Joy goes against the foundations of mathematics: it multiplies when we divide. —Paulo Coelho
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. —John F. Kennedy
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. —Sir Winston Churchill
We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same. —Anne Frank
The easiest way to make an impact in your community is just to be kind. —Joshua Williams
Creative people do not see things for what they are; they see them for what they can be. —Julie Israel
To be courageous requires no exceptional qualifications, no magic formula. It's an opportunity that sooner or later is presented to us all and each person must look for that courage in their own soul.  —John F. Kennedy
We must become what we wish to teach. —Nathaniel Branden
