Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. —Mary Jean Irion

Today, may we make every moment count, and then we'll see that we have turned a "normal day" into a spectacular one!

This is a great reminder of how we should live daily.


Health is the greatest of all possessions; a pale cobbler is better than a sick king. —Jonathan Swift
True beauty does not shine; it attracts. —Dr. Debasish Mridha
This above all-to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as night follows day, thou canst not then be false to any man. —William Shakespeare
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one. —John Lennon
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. —Louis "Lou" Holtz

Obstacles don’t have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don’t turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it or work around it. —Michael Jordan
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. —Albert Einstein
A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. —Saint Basil
The best way out is always through.  —Robert Frost
Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. —Ryunosuke Satoro
It is not in numbers, but in unity, that our great strength lies. —Thomas Paine
Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. —William Butler Yeats
Genuine tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences within a bond of civility and respect. —Richard John Neuhaus
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
