These 2 sentences say so much truth!!!


In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices. —Elizabeth Gilbert
The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking, don't settle. —Steve Jobs
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others. —Marcus Tullius Cicero
It takes two flints to make a fire. —Louisa May Alcott
The basic root of happiness lies in our minds; outer circumstances are nothing more than adverse or favorable. —Matthieu Ricard
Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart. —Indian Proverb
My family is my life, and everything else comes second as far as what's important to me. —Michael Imperioli
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
I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.
 —Og Mandino
When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed. —Fred Rogers
While we do our good works let us not forget that the real solution lies in a world in which charity will have become unnecessary. —Chinua Achebe
You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection. —Buddha
I learned that inspiration does not always come like a bolt, nor is it kinetic, energetic, striving, but it comes into us slowly and quietly and all the time.  —Brenda Ueland
Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. —Helen Keller
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning to sail my ship. —Louisa May Alcott
