So true!


Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. —Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave. —Indira Gandhi
Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity. —Pema Chödrön
If you can't excel with talent, triumph with effort. —Stephen G. Weinbaum
Genuine tolerance does not mean ignoring differences as if differences made no difference. Genuine tolerance means engaging differences within a bond of civility and respect. —Richard John Neuhaus

In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. —Theodore Roosevelt
What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have. —Oprah Winfrey
Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people. —Spencer Johnson
Eat healthily, sleep well, breathe deeply, move harmoniously. —Jean-Pierre Barral

Forget yesterday - it has already forgotten you. Don't sweat tomorrow - you haven't even met. Instead, open your eyes and your heart to a truly precious gift - today. —Steve Maraboli
Believe you can and you're halfway there. —Theodore Roosevelt
The problems of the world cannot possibly be solved by skeptics or cynics whose horizons are limited by the obvious realities. We need men who can dream of things that never were and ask 'why not'? —John F. Kennedy
Laughter is the shortest distance between two people. —Victor Borge
You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make. —Jane Goodall
