Good attitude to have:)


The enemy of great is good. —David Foster
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up the nebulae, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are star stuff. —Victor Tenbaum
The invariable mark of wisdom is to see the miraculous in the common. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty and truth. —Albert Einstein
All things are bound together. All things connect. Whatever happens to the Earth happens to the children of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. —Chief Seattle
In union there is strength. —Aesop
The more I wonder, the more I love. —Alice Walker
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one. —C.S. Lewis
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.  —Martin Luther King, Jr.
A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you, and were helped by you, will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. —Charles Hadden Spurgeon
This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays! —D.M. Dellinger
Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose. —Frank Tyger
We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan
Appreciation is a wonderful thing. It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well. —Voltaire
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them become what they are capable of being. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
