Great quote and great way to live.


To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life. —John Burroughs
Mistakes are the portals of discovery. —James Joyce
Love is always bestowed as a gift—freely, willingly, and without expectation. We don’t love to be loved, we love to love. —Dr. Leo Buscaglia
I have a habit of letting my imagination run away from me. It always comes back though... drenched with possibilities. —Valaida Fullwood
A warm smile is the universal language of kindness. —William Arthur Ward
Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they're meant to be. —B.K.S. Iyengar
Instruction does much, but encouragement everything. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
All human beings should try to learn before they die what they are running from, and to, and why. —James Thurber
I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.  —Mary Anne Radmacher
The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
 —Malcolm S. Forbes
No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the horizon of the spirit. —Helen Keller
In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices. —Elizabeth Gilbert
The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul. —Victor Hugo
I am not this hair, I am not this skin, I am the soul that lives within. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays! —D.M. Dellinger
