Exactly! I'm bless with the message.


It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it. —Eleanor Roosevelt
You only live once - but if you work it right, once is enough. —Joe E. Lewis
Does the sun ask itself, "Am I good? Am I worthwhile? Is there enough of me?" No, it burns and it shines. Does the sun ask itself, "What does the moon think of me? How does Mars feel about me today?" No it burns, it shines. Does the sun ask itself, "Am I as big as other suns in other galaxies?" No, it burns, it shines. —Andrea Dworkin
There are painters who transform the sun to a yellow spot, but there are others who with the help of their art and their intelligence, transform a yellow spot into sun. —Pablo Picasso
I place a high moral value on the way people behave. I find it repellent to have a lot, and to behave with anything other than courtesy in the old sense of the word - politeness of the heart, a gentleness of the spirit. —Fran Lebowitz
A laugh is a smile that bursts. —Mary H. Waldrip
Never let a problem to be solved become more important than the person to be loved.  —Barbara Johnson
Let my soul smile through my heart and my heart smile through my eyes, that I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts. —Paramahansa Yogananda
If you can't figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose. —T.D. Jakes
Friends are medicine for a wounded heart and vitamins for a hopeful soul. —Steve Maraboli
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else. —Les Brown
Never be so busy as not to think of others. —Mother Teresa
Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world. —Etty Hillesum
It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody. —Maya Angelou
For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others. —Nelson Mandela
Gratitude is the beginning of civility, of decency and goodness, of a recognition that we cannot afford to be arrogant. We should walk with the knowledge that we will need help every step of the way. —Gordon B. Hinckley
