Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people. —Spencer Johnson
Love yourself, respect yourself. Never sell yourself short. Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think. You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it. —Marcus Allen
What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. —Nelson Mandela
Be of good cheer. Do not think of today's failures, but of the success that may come tomorrow.

Remember, no effort that we make to attain something beautiful is ever lost. —Helen Keller
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
If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. —Rachel Carson

Do something for those who have need of a man's help - Something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. —Albert Schweitzer
No two leaves are alike, and yet there is no antagonism between them or between the branches on which they grow. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
If character is what you do when no one is watching, then sportsmanship is that conduct with everybody watching. —Bob Ley
The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand. —Vince Lombardi
Hope lies in dreams, in imagination and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. —Jonas Salk
Commitment unlocks the doors of imagination, allows vision, and gives us the right stuff to turn our dream into reality. —James Womack
A man without a purpose is like a ship without a rudder. —Thomas Carlyle
Joy; the kind of happiness that doesn’t depend on what happens. —David Steindl-Rast
