I really need to use these vaues quotations for my motivational speaking.


We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy. —Joseph Campbell
Never let a problem to be solved become more important than the person to be loved.  —Barbara Johnson
Honesty is more than not lying. It is truth telling, truth speaking, truth living, and truth loving. —James E. Faust
We don't need to share the same opinions as others, but we need to be respectful. —Taylor Swift
Wherever we are, it is our friends that make our world. —Henry Drummond
If you're doing your best, you won't have any time to worry about failure. —H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more? —Theodor Seuss Geisel
I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky. —Oprah Winfrey

Nurture your minds with great thoughts. To believe in the heroic makes heroes. —Benjamin Disraeli
There is nothing so strong or safe in an emergency of life as the simple truth. —Charles Dickens
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow. —Melody Beattie
Good manners have much to do with the emotions. To make them ring true, one must feel them, not merely exhibit them. —Amy Vanderbilt
Sincere compliments cost nothing and can accomplish much.  —Steve Goodier
True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are. —Brené Brown
To help yourself, help others. Whatever good you do travels a circle and returns to you many times over- but remember, life isn't about what you get, it's about what you become. —Dennis Gaskill
