To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
Gracious acceptance is an art—an art which most never bother to cultivate. We think that we have to learn how to give, but we forget about accepting things, which can be much harder than giving... Accepting another person's gift is allowing him to express his feelings for you. —Alexander McCall Smith
Sometimes, carrying on, just carrying on, is the superhuman achievement. —Albert Camus
Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up wrinkles the soul. —Douglas MacArthur
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again. —William Penn
What counts can’t always be counted; what can be counted doesn’t always count. —Albert Einstein
Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously. —Jean-Pierre Barral
Friendship improves happiness and abates misery, by the doubling of our joy and the dividing of our grief. —Marcus Tullius Cicero
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream, not only plan, but also believe. —Anatole France
I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death. —Nelson Mandela
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. —Neil deGrasse Tyson
Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence. —Abigail Adams
Civility is the art and act of caring for others. —Deborah King
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties. —Erich Seligmann Fromm
That thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, too early in the morning, too late at night. That thing you read about, write about, think about, in fact fantasize about. That thing you do when you’re all alone and there’s no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. That’s it. That’s your thing. That’s your heart, your guide. That’s the thing you must, must do. —Jes Allen
