I've discovered a lot in my 73 years!


Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy. —Thich Nhat Hanh
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. —Eden Ahbez
You have to know what you want to get. But when you know that, let it take you. And if it seems to take you off the track, don't hold back because perhaps that is instinctively where you want to be. —Gertrude Stein
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved. —Helen Keller
Falling down is part of life. Getting back up is living. —Anonymous
The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order. —Henry Ward Beecher
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
We need to remember that circumstances don’t make a person, they reveal a person.  —Emma Jameson
The roots of all goodness lie in the soil of appreciation for goodness. —The 14th Dalai Lama
Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal - a commitment to excellence - that will enable you to attain the success you seek. —Mario Andretti
A pessimist, they say, sees a glass as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty. —G. Donald Gale
I have been impressed with the urgency of doing.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.

Being willing is not enough, we must do. —Leonardo da Vinci
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity. —W. Clement Stone
I cannot believe that the purpose of life is to be happy. I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all. —Leo Rosten
I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death. —Nelson Mandela
The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. —Don Williams Jr.
