Pride slays thanksgiving, but a humble mind is the soil out of which thanks naturally grow. A proud man is seldom a grateful man, for he never thinks he gets as much as he deserves.

The highest reward for man's toil is not what he gets for it, but what he becomes by it. —John Ruskin
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
It is not beauty that endears, it’s love that makes us see beauty. —Leo Tolstoy
Individually, we are one drop. Together, we are an ocean. —Ryunosuke Satoro
Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world. —Etty Hillesum
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
It's never too late to be what you might have been. —George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore. —Vincent Van Gogh
You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. —André Gide

When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
There’s something very freeing about losing the anchors that have always defined you. Frightening, sad, but exhilarating in a poignant way, as well. You’re free to float to the moon and evaporate or sink to the bottom of the deepest ocean. But you’re free to explore. Some people confuse that with drifting, I suppose. I like to think of it as growing. —Deborah Smith
You must find the place inside yourself where nothing is impossible. —Deepak K. Chopra
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths.

Beautiful people do not just happen. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
Kindness isn't about the thanks you get. It's about the act itself. —Joshua Williams
Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can. —John Wesley
