I feel this quote is pretty inspiring good words from Joe Campbell


People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them. —George Bernard Shaw
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy. —Thich Nhat Hanh
It's easy to find reasons for division between people. Finding common ground is harder, but a step towards happiness. —Unknown
When we have peace in our hearts and minds, we draw peace into our lives.
 —Iyanla Vanzant
The cure for anything is salt water - tears, sweat, or the sea.

 —Isak Dinesen [Karen Blixen]
Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage and confidence in the doing. —Theodore Roosevelt
Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. —William Arthur Ward
People can't be just tied together. They have to connect. Otherwise, they'll find themselves bound hand and foot. —Ai Yazawa
Never look down to test the ground before taking your next step; only he who keeps his eye fixed on the far horizon will find his right road. —Dag Hammarskjold
Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe. —Saint Augustine
We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams. —Jimmy Carter
The value of life is not based on how long we live, but how much we contribute to others in our society. —Buddha
Friends are medicine for a wounded heart and vitamins for a hopeful soul. —Steve Maraboli
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
Where hope grows, miracles blossom. —Elna Rae
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these. —George Washington Carver
