Set your life on fire. Seek those who fan your flames. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
I am not afraid. I was born to do this. —Joan of Arc
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else's life. Don’t be trapped by dogma- which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. —Steve Jobs
It's faith that will take you through, and determination that will drive you. —Jonathan Anthony Burkett
Hurt people, hurt people. That's how pain patterns get passed on, generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today.

Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe. —Saint Augustine
The body is like a piano, and happiness is like music. It is needful to have the instrument in good order. —Henry Ward Beecher
I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. —Edward Everett Hale
I sustain myself with the love of family. —Maya Angelou
In union there is strength. —Aesop
