Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up. —Anne Lamott

The family is one of nature's masterpieces. —George Santayana
The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. —Bob Moawad
Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others. —Marcus Tullius Cicero
One must care about a world one will not see. —Bertrand Russell
What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul. —Yiddish Proverb
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
The soul should always stand ajar, ready to welcome the ecstatic experience. —Emily Dickinson
Where there is unity there is always victory. —Publius Syrus
As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, ‘I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal. —Harper Lee
If you don't know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he's just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It's one world, pal. We're all neighbors.
 —Frank Sinatra
This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays! —D.M. Dellinger

There is a courtesy of the heart; it is allied to love. From it springs the purest courtesy in the outward behavior. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. —Alfred D. Souza
Although the world is full of suffering, it's full also of the overcoming it. —Helen Keller
