Exactly! I'm bless with the message.


Freedom lies in being bold. —Robert Frost
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
Let the beauty of what you love be what you do. —Jalal ad-Din Rumi
Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway. —Earl Nightingale
It is not beauty that endears, it’s love that makes us see beauty. —Leo Tolstoy
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. —Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return. —Eden Ahbez
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I might have.  —Abraham Lincoln
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. —Muriel Strode
Without commitment, you cannot have depth in anything, whether it's a relationship, a business or a hobby. —Neil Strauss
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. —J.R.R. Tolkien
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and watch and work: you don't give up. —Anne Lamott
If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

 —Henry David Thoreau
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. —Albert Einstein
Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.  —Theodore Roosevelt
We haven't all had the good fortune to be ladies; we haven't all been generals, or poets, or statesmen; but when the toast works down to the babies, we stand on common ground—for we have all been babies. —Mark Twain
