Lots to think ....

Listening is where love begins: listening to ourselves and then to our neighbors. —Fred Rogers
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
You really can change the world if you care enough. —Marian Wright Edelman
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. —Jane Goodall
The power of love to change bodies is legendary, built into folklore, common sense, and everyday experience. Love moves the flesh, it pushes matter around... Throughout history, tender loving care has uniformly been recognized as a valuable element in healing. —Dr. Larry Dossey, M.D.
It is the soul's duty to be loyal to its own desires. It must abandon itself to its master passion. —Dame Rebecca West
We can learn to see each other and see ourselves in each other and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unalike. —Maya Angelou
The root of all health is in the brain. The trunk of it is in emotion. The branches and leaves are the body. The flower of health blooms when all parts work together. —Kurdish saying
If you treat an individual as he is, he will remain how he is. But if you treat him as if he were what he ought to be and could be, he will become what he ought to be and could be. —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
If you really want to do something, you will work hard for it. —Edmund Hillary
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
When I say it's you I like, I'm talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed. —Fred Rogers
You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.  —Michael Phelps
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. —Maya Angelou
Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself. —Lucille Ball
You must do the thing which you think you cannot do. —Eleanor Roosevelt
