It's true. Unless you are willing to try to exceed your limits, you will never get to your limits.


Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. —Sir Winston Churchill
The molecules of your body are the same molecules that make up the nebulae, that burn inside the stars themselves. We are star stuff. —Victor Tenbaum
Infinitely more important than sharing one's material wealth is sharing the wealth of ourselves—our time and energy, our passion and commitment, and, above all, our love. —William E. Simon
Wouldn't it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth. Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out. —Alan Cohen
If a man be gracious and courteous to strangers, it shows he is a citizen of the world, and that his heart is no island cut off from other lands, but a continent that joins to them. —Sir Frances Bacon
When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Life is not so short but that there is always time for courtesy. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love - even the most simple action.  —Eckhart Tolle
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place. —Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it. —Moliere
What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly. —Richard David Bach
At the end of the day, tell yourself gently: 'I love you, you did the best you could today, and even if you didn't accomplish all you had planned, I love you anyway.' —Anonymous
To thrive in life you need three bones. A wishbone. A backbone. And a funny bone. —Reba McEntire
The more we share the more we have. —Leonard Nimoy
What I admire in Columbus is not his having discovered a world, but his having gone to search for it on the faith of his own opinion. —Turgot
Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received-only what you have given: a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. —Saint Francis of Assisi
