Pass It On®

When heaven is about to confer a great responsibility on any man, it will exercise his mind with suffering, subject his sinews and bones to hard work, expose his body to hunger, put him to poverty, place obstacles in the paths of his deeds, so as to stimulate his mind, harden his nature, and improve wherever he is incompetent.

MENG TZU

Chinese philosopher

If you want to make a difference and leave your world a better place, let others know how important they are as you put their needs above yours. —Jaren L. Davis
Believe you can and you're halfway there. —Theodore Roosevelt
Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply. —Stephen R. Covey
I will follow the upward road today; I will keep my face to the light. I will think high thoughts as I go my way; I will do what I know is right. I will look for the flowers by the side of the road; I will laugh and love and be strong. I will try to lighten another’s load this day as I fare along. —Mary S. Edgar
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. —Alfred D. Souza
Maybe the journey isn’t so much about becoming anything. Maybe it’s about un-becoming everything that isn’t really you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place. —Unknown
Practice puts brains in your muscles.  —Samuel Snead
A smile is the universal welcome. —Max Eastman
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. —Eleanor Roosevelt
Education breeds confidence. —Confucius
We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessing of peace. —William Gladstone
Do not let making a living prevent you from making a life. —John R. Wooden
If you're doing your best, you won't have any time to worry about failure. —H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Remember, no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. —Eleanor Roosevelt
In helping others, we shall help ourselves, for whatever good we give out completes the circle and comes back to us. —Flora Edwards
You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for our own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful. —Marie Curie
