Beautifully stated.


The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream. —William Shakespeare
Believe you can and you're halfway there. —Theodore Roosevelt
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I might have.  —Abraham Lincoln
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious Ambiguity.  —Gilda Radner
People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. —Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
We are the music-makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. We are the movers and shakers of the world forever, it seems.  —Arthur O' Shaughnessy
Before you can live a part of you has to die. You have to let go of what could have been, how you should have acted and what you wish you would have said differently. You have to accept that you can’t change the past experiences, opinions of others at that moment in time or outcomes from their choices or yours. When you finally recognize that truth, then you will understand the true meaning of forgiveness of yourself and others. From this point you will finally be free. —Shannon L. Alder
There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing - light trumps darkness every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light. —Jodi Picoult
Including people with differences is the right thing to do. —Sarah Greichen
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one. —C.S. Lewis
Listen to your heart. It knows all things. —Paulo Coelho
Charity and love are the same—with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead. —Mother Teresa
Honesty is the fastest way to prevent a mistake from turning into a failure. —James Altucher
Believe in your infinite potential. Your only limitations are those you set upon yourself. —Roy T. Bennett
Giving is so often thought of in terms of the things we give, but our greatest giving is of our time, and kindness, and even comfort for those who need it. We look on these gifts as unimportant – until we need them. —Joyce Sequichie Hifler
When you know who you are; when your mission is clear and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will; no cold can touch your heart; no deluge can dampen your purpose. You know that you are alive. —Chief Seattle
