good work.


He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how. —Friedrich Nietzsche
Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing. —Tony Blair
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. —Thich Nhat Hanh
You may be whatever you resolve to be. Determine to be something in the world and you will be something. “I cannot,” never accomplished anything; "I will try,” has wrought wonders. —J. Hawes
It's never too late to be what you might have been. —George Eliot [Mary Ann Evans]
Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing. —August Wilson
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else's life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. —Steve Jobs
There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.  —C.S. Lewis
Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly. —Robert F. Kennedy
Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe. —Oprah Winfrey
Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person. —R. Buckminster Fuller
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand. —Woodrow Wilson
Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings. —Victor Hugo
The purpose of education is to replace an empty mind with an open one.
 —Malcolm S. Forbes
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it. —Knute Rockne
When you realize nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you. —Lao Tzu
