As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, ‘I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal. —Harper Lee

Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties. —Erich Seligmann Fromm
I know you've heard it a thousand times before, but it's true... hard work pays off. If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don't love something, then don't do it. —Ray Bradbury
There is a voice that doesn’t use words. Listen. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Nothing liberates our greatness like the desire to help, the desire to serve. —Marianne Williamson
Sincere compliments cost nothing and can accomplish much. In any relationship, they are the applause that refreshes. —Steve Goodier
The family is one of nature's masterpieces. —George Santayana

Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life.

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.  —Steve Jobs
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. —Benjamin Franklin
