For last year's words belong to last year's language. And next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning. —T.S. Eliot

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong, because someday in your life, you will have been all of these. —George Washington Carver
A room without books is like a body without a soul. —Marcus Tullius Cicero
A good laugh is sunshine in the house. —William Makepeace Thackeray
It's not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy. —Mary Flannery O'Connor
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, ‘This is what it is to be happy.’ —Sylvia Plath
Anyone can look for fashion in a boutique or history in a museum. The creative explorer looks for history in a hardware store and fashion in an airport. —Robert S. Wieder
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. —Eden Ahbez
Joy is not in things; it is in us. —Richard Wagner
I’m beginning to recognize that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead, but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row. —Beau Christopher Taplin
If you can't do great things, do small things in a great way. —Napoleon Hill
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
Your journey has molded you for the greater good, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time. —Asha Tyson
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
When you realize nothing is lacking, the whole world belongs to you. —Lao Tzu
Instead of thinking about where you are, think about where you want to be. It takes twenty years of hard work to become an overnight success. —Diana Rankin
The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
