Make your life better by helping and supporting others. Be kind always.


The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up. —Mark Twain
I will follow the upward road today; I will keep my face to the light. I will think high thoughts as I go my way; I will do what I know is right. I will look for the flowers by the side of the road; I will laugh and love and be strong. I will try to lighten another’s load this day as I fare along. —Mary S. Edgar
You may be whatever you resolve to be. Determine to be something in the world and you will be something. “I cannot,” never accomplished anything; "I will try,” has wrought wonders. —J. Hawes
Loyalty means nothing unless it has at its heart the absolute principle of self-sacrifice. —Woodrow Wilson
There is no joy in possession without sharing. —Desiderius Erasmus
A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. —Albert Einstein
You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. And the world will live as one. —John Lennon
Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change. —Bob Kerrey
Sportsmanship for me is when a guy walks off the court and you really can't tell whether he won or lost, when he carries himself with pride either way. —James Spencer "Jim" Courier
The simple act of caring is heroic. —Edward Albert
Nothing is ever lost by courtesy. It is the cheapest of pleasures, costs nothing, and conveys much. —Erastus Wiman
We have two ears and one tongue so that we would listen more and talk less. —Diogenes of Sinope
If you see someone and they strike you as beautiful in any way, why not let them know? —Jill Scott
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity. —Keshavan Nair
We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. —Sir Winston Churchill
If character is what you do when no one is watching, then sportsmanship is that conduct with everybody watching. —Bob Ley
