Learn as if you were going to live forever. Live as if you were going to die tomorrow.
Mahatma Gandhi

Each day is a new canvas to paint upon. Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness, and at the end of the day you don't look at it and wish you had painted something different.
Author Unknown

To know thyself is the beginning of wisdom.
Socrates

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful that the risk it took to bloom.
Anais Nin

A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills and uses these skills to accomplish his goals.
Larry Bird

It's good to shut up sometimes.
Marcel Marceau

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

All meaningful and lasting change starts first in your imagination and then works its way out. Imagination is more important than knowledge.
Albert Einstein

The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man.
Euripides

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
Mark Twain

Only those who dare to fail greatly, can ever achieve greatly.
Robert F. Kennedy

At 20 years of age the will reigns, at 30 the wit, at 40 the judgment.
Benjamin Franklin

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
Aristotle

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
Albert Einstein

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.
Chinese Proverb

It is never too late to be what you might have been.
George Eliot

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge - myth is more potent than history - dreams are more powerful than facts - hope always triumphs over experience - laughter is the cure for grief - love is stronger than death.
Robert Fulghum

At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
Barbara Bush

Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.
Helen Keller

We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
T.S. Eliot

Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it with use.
Ruth Gordon

Being vulnerable doesn't have to be threatening. Just have the courage to be sincere, open and honest. This opens the door to deeper communication all around. It creates self-empowerment and the kind of connections with others we all want in life. Speaking from the heart frees us from the secrets that burden us. These secrets are what make us sick or fearful. Speaking truth helps you get clarity on your real heart directives.
Sara Paddison

Don't be afraid your life will end; be afraid that it will never begin.
Grace Hansen

Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
Groucho Marx

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.
Author Unknown

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver

I postpone death by living, by suffering, by error, by risking, by giving, by losing.
Anaias Nin

If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.
Katharine Hepburn

If you want to know the past, to know what has caused you, look at yourself in the PRESENT, for that is the past's effect. If you want to know your future, then look at yourself in the PRESENT, for that is the cause of the future.
Majjhima Nikaya

It's never too late — in fiction or in life — to revise.
Nancy Thayer

Kind words do not cost much. They never blister the tongue or lips. They make other people good-natured. They also produce their own image on men's souls, and a beautiful image it is.
Blaise Pascal

Let go of your attachment to being right, and suddenly your mind is more open. You're able to benefit from the unique viewpoints of others, without being crippled by your own judgment.
Ralph Marston

Look at everything as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time. Then your time on earth will be filled with glory.
Betty Smith

Mistakes are part of the dues that one pays for a full life.
Sophia Loren

Nothing is predestined: The obstacles of your past can become the gateways that lead to new beginnings.
Ralph Blum

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.
Dale Carnegie

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.
John Quincy Adams

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.
Dalai Lama

The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
Robert Louis Stevenson

The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.
Allan K. Chalmers

The greatest weakness of most humans is their hesitancy to tell others how much they love them while they're alive.
Orlando A. Battista

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
Lady Dorothy Nevill

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.
Alice Walker

The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers, and cities; but to know someone here and there who thinks and feels with us, and though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.
Goethe

There are two ways of meeting difficulties. You alter the difficulties or you alter yourself to meet them.
Phyllis Bottome

Time is a dressmaker specializing in alterations.
Faith Baldwin

To love what you do and feel that it matters — how could anything be more fun?
Katherine Graham

We tend to forget that happiness doesn't come as a result of getting something we don't have, but rather of recognizing and appreciating what we do have.
Fredrick Koeing

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, never give up then, for that is just the time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

When you plant lettuce, if it does not grow well, you don't blame the lettuce. You look for reasons it is not doing well. It may need fertilizer, or more water, or less sun. You never blame the lettuce. Yet if we have problems with our friends or family, we blame the other person. But if we know how to take care of them, they will grow well, like the lettuce. Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and arguments. That is my experience. No blame, no reasoning, no argument, just understanding.
Thich Nhat Hahn

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
and though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love, but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward, nor tarries with yesterday.
Kahlil Gibran
