These 2 sentences say so much truth!!!


If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all neighbors.
 —Frank Sinatra
Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. —John Quincy Adams
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. —T.S. Eliot
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
Ambition is enthusiasm with a purpose. —Frank Tyger
A will finds a way. —Orison Swett Marden
Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it. —Wilferd A. Peterson
There’s something very freeing about losing the anchors that have always defined you. Frightening, sad, but exhilarating in a poignant way, as well. You’re free to float to the moon and evaporate or sink to the bottom of the deepest ocean. But you’re free to explore. Some people confuse that with drifting, I suppose. I like to think of it as growing. —Deborah Smith
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
You don’t learn to walk by following rules. You learn by doing, and by falling over. —Richard Branson
It is a grand thing to rise in the world. The ambition to do so is the very salt of the earth. It is the parent of all enterprise, and the cause of all improvement. —Anthony Trollope
Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity. —Pema Chodron
Fear less, hope more; Eat less, chew more; Whine less, breathe more; Talk less, say more; Love more, and all good things will be yours!  —Swedish Proverb
When we face the worst that can happen in any situation, we grow. When circumstances are at their worst, we can find our best. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
The first duty of love is to listen. —Paul Tillich
The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires. —William Arthur Ward
