This is so true!! Why can't Albert Einstein still be alive today?!


You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one. —John Lennon
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
No one has ever become poor by giving. —Anne Frank
To err is human, to forgive, divine. —Alexander Pope
The simple act of caring is heroic. —Edward Albert
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. —Nelson Mandela
Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. —Chief Seattle
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. —Henry David Thoreau
We are reminded how short life really is, and how we are just passing through. So, all the people you haven't told you love lately, tell them, and live your days like you mean it. —Hal Sutton
Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.  —Steve Jobs
I close my eyes to old ends. And open my heart to new beginnings. —Nick Frederickson
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. —Helen Keller
There are always flowers for those who want to see them. —Henri Matisse
If you shift your focus from yourself to others, extend your concern to others, and cultivate the thought of caring for the well being of others, then this will have the immediate effect of opening up your life and helping you to reach out. —The 14th Dalai Lama
Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people. —Spencer Johnson
