The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking, don't settle. —Steve Jobs
Don’t just aspire to make a living. Aspire to make a difference. —Denzel Washington

When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
If civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships - the ability of all peoples, of all kinds, to live together, in the same world at peace.  —Franklin D. Roosevelt
If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great. —Tom Hanks
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’ —Sylvia Plath
No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the horizon of the spirit. —Helen Keller
