We can't help everyone, but everyone can help someone. —Ronald Reagan
The person who makes a success of living is the one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication.  —Cecil B. DeMille
To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter... to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird's nest or a wildflower in spring — these are some of the rewards of the simple life. —John Burroughs
If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time. Your life will become better by making other lives better. —Will Smith
Peace, like charity, begins at home. —Franklin D. Roosevelt
Speak in such a way that others love to listen to you. Listen in such a way that others love to speak to you. —Anonymous
Love yourself, respect yourself. Never sell yourself short. Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think. You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it. —Marcus Allen

We find greatest joy, not in getting, but in expressing what we are. Men do not really live for honors or for pay; their gladness is not the taking and holding, but in doing, the striving, the building, the living. It is a higher joy to teach than to be taught. It is good to get justice, but better to do it; fun to have things but more to make them. The happy man is he who lives the life of love, not for the honors it may bring, but for the life itself. —R.J. Baughan
Sometimes it is better to lose and do the right thing than to win and do the wrong thing. —Tony Blair
Perhaps the secret of living well is not in having all the answers but in pursuing unanswerable questions in good company. —Rachel Naomi Remen
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. —Charles William Eliot
