Definitely words to live by...


Ask not for an easy life...ask for the strength to face the elements, to weather the storms; to be the might for the right and the weak, to be the voice for those who cannot speak, to see one's dreams to fruition with dignity, integrity, and grace. —Giac Nguyen
This is the art of courage: to see things as they are and still believe that the victory lies not with those who avoid the bad, but those who taste, in living awareness, every drop of the good. —Victoria Lincoln
I know the price of success: dedication, hard work, and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.  —Frank Lloyd Wright
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
You're amazing just the way you are. —Bruno Mars
A leader is someone who demonstrates what's possible. —Mark Yarnell
If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete. —Buddha
If you can't excel with talent, triumph with effort. —Stephen G. Weinbaum
For me, I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be surprised how far that gets you. —Neil deGrasse Tyson
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
Make up your mind that no matter what comes your way, no matter how difficult, no matter how unfair, you will do more than simply survive. You will thrive in spite of it. —Joel Osteen
There are no shortcuts to any place worth going. —Beverly Sills
There’s always going to be bad stuff out there. But here’s the amazing thing - light trumps darkness every time. You stick a candle into the dark, but you can’t stick the dark into the light. —Jodi Picoult
We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy. —Joseph Campbell
Laughter is the shortest distance between two people. —Victor Borge
Never forget that you are one of a kind. Never forget that if there weren't any need for you in all your uniqueness to be on this earth, you wouldn't be here in the first place. And never forget, no matter how overwhelming life's challenges and problems seem to be, that one person can make a difference in the world. In fact, it is always because of one person that all the changes that matter in the world come about. So be that one person. —R. Buckminster Fuller
