Moral is life to learn from.

I also value politeness and honesty, these are things that a person should always be, without any thought in presenting their self.

So true and I wish that everyone took heart and reacted positively to this message. Especially the value idea of courtesy.

Well said. Very nice. Now a days people need to learn what is courtesy.


Intelligence without ambition is a bird without wings. —Salvador Dali
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome. —Anne Bradstreet
Forgiveness says you are given another chance to make a new beginning. —Archbishop Desmond Tutu
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.  —Gilda Radner
Love in action is service. —Ken Essien
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
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
Leadership is a two-way street. Respect for one's superiors; care for one's crew. —Grace Hopper
Encouragement is oxygen to the soul. —George M. Adams
Give yourself entirely to those around you. Be generous with your blessings. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. —Steve Maraboli
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. —Jane Goodall
Difficulties are meant to rouse, not discourage. The human spirit is to grow strong by conflict. —William Ellery Channing
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished. —Lao Tzu
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later. —Og Mandino
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
The world is not interested in what we do for a living. What they are interested in is what we have to offer freely - hope, strength, love and the power to make a difference!
