Surrender to what is, let go of what was, have faith in what will be.  —Sonia Ricotti
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see. —Mark Twain
A friend is one that knows you as you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you have become, and still, gently allows you to grow. —William Shakespeare
Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow. —Mary Anne Radmacher
Love in action is service. —Ken Essien
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. —Golda Meir
When someone steals another's clothes, we call them a thief. Should we not give the same name to one who could clothe the naked and does not? The bread in your cupboard belongs to the hungry; the coat unused in your closet belongs to the one who needs it; the shoes rotting in your closet belong to the one who has no shoes; the money which you hoard up belongs to the poor. —Saint Basil
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
Wisdom is knowing we are all One. Love is what it feels like and compassion is what it acts like. —Ethan Walker III
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
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all. —Sam Ewing
The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up the nebulae, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are star stuff. —Victor Tenbaum
Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light. —Albert Schweitzer
I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve. —Albert Schweitzer
Let us see what love can do. —William Penn
When you are joyful, when you say yes to life and have fun and project positivity all around you, you become a sun in the center of every constellation, and people want to be near you. —Shannon L. Alder
