You only live once - but if you work it right, once is enough. —Joe E. Lewis
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
If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete. —Buddha
I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one's head pointed toward the sun, one's feet moving forward. There were many dark moments when my faith in humanity was sorely tested, but I would not and could not give myself up to despair. That way lays defeat and death. —Nelson Mandela
My mission is to create a world where we can live in harmony with nature. —Jane Goodall
I have never met a person whose greatest need was anything other than real, unconditional love. You can find it in a simple act of kindness toward someone who needs help.

At the end of the day, tell yourself gently: 'I love you, you did the best you could today, and even if you didn't accomplish all you had planned, I love you anyway.' —Anonymous
Respect is love in action. —Bangambiki Habyarimana
You must never be fearful about what you are doing when it is right. —Rosa Parks
Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. —Aristotle
Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. —Marie Curie
Victory is remembered for at most two decades; an act of good sportsmanship is remembered for a lifetime. —Simon Nguyen
Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up. —Jesse Jackson
Find life experiences and swallow them whole. Travel. Meet many people. Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. Try everything. Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life. —Lawrence K. Fish
You have to know what you want to get. But when you know that, let it take you. And if it seems to take you off the track, don't hold back because perhaps that is instinctively where you want to be. —Gertrude Stein
Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand-and melting like a snowflake… —Sir Frances Bacon
