What a beautiful thought. Wish the whole world would do what it says...


Good manners and soft words have brought many a difficult thing to pass. —Sir John Vanbrugh
After every storm the sun will smile; for every problem there is a solution, and the soul's indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer. —William R. Alger
Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today. —Steve Maraboli

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else's skin. It's the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. —Frederick Buechner
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
Find the good—and praise it. —Alex Haley

We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams. —Jimmy Carter
You may be whatever you resolve to be. Determine to be something in the world and you will be something. “I cannot,” never accomplished anything; "I will try,” has wrought wonders. —J. Hawes
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. —Eric Roth
A pessimist, they say, sees a glass as being half empty; an optimist sees the same glass as half full. But a giving person sees a glass of water and starts looking for someone who might be thirsty. —G. Donald Gale
