Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings. —Victor Hugo

One to memorize. So much comfort - as my daughter heads off to college.


I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve. —Albert Schweitzer
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this. —Henry David Thoreau
Do something for those who have need of a man's help - Something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. —Albert Schweitzer
I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning to sail my ship. —Louisa May Alcott
Kindness is... anything that lifts another person. —C. Neil Strait
Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. —Neale Donald Walsch
What counts can’t always be counted; what can be counted doesn’t always count. —Albert Einstein
Do it again. Play it again. Sing it again. Read it again. Write it again. Sketch it again. Rehearse it again. Run it again. Try it again.
Because again is practice, and practice is improvement. —Richelle E. Goodrich
A dream doesn't become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. —Colin Powell
Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
Don’t be afraid to be ambitious about your goals. Hard work never stops. Neither should your dreams. —Dwayne Johnson
Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in the quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. —Mary Jean Irion
The moment when you first wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the twenty-four hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, absolutely anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t matters not a jot. The possibility is always there. —Monica Baldwin
Mindfulness is the aware, balanced acceptance of the present experience. It isn’t more complicated than that. It is opening to or receiving the present moment, pleasant or unpleasant, just as it is, without either clinging to it or rejecting it. —Sylvia Boorstein
Love in action is service. —Ken Essien
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
