In todays' political climate this is a good thought to remember......

The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows. —Sydney Harris
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.  —Mark Twain
Love yourself, respect yourself. Never sell yourself short. Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think. You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it. —Marcus Allen
My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world. —Jack Layton
May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours wherever you may roam...
 —Irish Proverb
The family is one of nature's masterpieces. —George Santayana
We have to stand up for what we believe in, even when we might not be popular for it. Honesty starts with being ourselves, authentic and true to who we are and what we believe in, and that may not always be popular, but it will always let you follow your dreams and your heart. —Tabatha Coffey
What makes a river so restful to people is that it doesn't have any doubt - it is sure to get where it is going, and it doesn't want to go anywhere else. —Hal Boyle
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. —Margaret Mead
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. —Charles Hadden Spurgeon
I can't think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself. —Emma Stone
Before you can live a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth, then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free. —Shannon L. Alder
A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. —Neil Gaiman
