Always best to look ahead, can't change past , just learn


A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. —Albert Einstein
Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing. —Tony Blair
Good character is more to be praised than outstanding talent. Most talents are to some extent a gift. Good character, by contrast, is not given to us. We have to build it piece by piece by thought, choice, courage and determination. —John Luther
Mistakes are the portals of discovery. —James Joyce
Friends are medicine for a wounded heart and vitamins for a hopeful soul. —Steve Maraboli
Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human. —Henri Nouwen
One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than a hundred teaching it. —Knute Rockne
Consult not your fears, but your hopes and your dreams. —Pope John XXIII
Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. —Howard Thurman
We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count. —Neal Maxwell
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can. —Nikos Kazantzakis
It's not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something. May I suggest that it be creating joy for others, sharing what we have for the betterment of personkind, bringing hope to the lost and love to the lonely. —Dr. Leo Buscaglia
Above everything else I've done, I've always said I've had more guts than I've got talent. —Dolly Parton
Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities. —Theodor Seuss Geisel
Practice civility toward one another. Admire and emulate ethical behavior wherever you find it. Apply a rigid standard of morality to your lives; and if, periodically, you fail as you surely will, ­adjust your lives, not the standards.  —Ted Koppel
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. —John R. Wooden
