Absolutely!


You don’t inspire your teammates by showing them how amazing you are. You inspire them by showing them how amazing they are. —Robyn Benincasa
Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny. —C.S. Lewis
Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart. Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside awakens. —Carl Gustav Jung
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has. —Margaret Mead
Always reward your long hours of labor surrounded by your family. Nurture their love carefully, remembering that your children need models, not critics. And even if you have failed at all else in the eyes of the world, if you have a loving family, you are a success. —Og Mandino
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them. —George Bernard Shaw
Remember when you go into the world to keep your eyes and ears wide open. And be kind. Love one another. Take care of each other. Tell the truth. Always do your best. Listen to the big people and the little people. Explore new paths and have fun. Know that you are loved like crazy. Give thanks for all your blessings. Above all else, Love and you will do wonderful things in this world. —Rebecca Puig
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. —Alfred D. Souza
Once you choose hope, anything's possible. —Christopher Reeve
Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. —Ralph Marston
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, and sometimes your smile is the source of your joy. —Thich Nhat Hanh
Friends are medicine for a wounded heart and vitamins for a hopeful soul. —Steve Maraboli
Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door.  —Emily Dickinson
In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can. —Nikos Kazantzakis
Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. —Joseph Addison
Character, the willingness to accept responsibility for one's own life, is the source from which self-respect springs. —Joan Didion
