Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love.
Love is like war, easy to begin but hard to end.
All or our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. -
If we all tired to make other peoples paths easy, our own feet would have a smooth even place to walk on.
Fortify yourself with contentment, for this is an impregnable fortress.
Predetermine the objectives you want to accomplish. Think big, act big and set out to accomplish big results.

Joe Gideon, All That Jazz (1979)
When you reach for the stars, you may not get one, but you won't come up with a handful of mud, either.
When you drop a pebble into a pool of water, the pebble starts a series of ripples that expand until they encompass the whole pool. This is exactly what will happen when I give my ideas a definite plan of action. Right now I can project my thoughts into the future. I can see ahead of me. I dream, I am not easily discouraged, readily visualize myself as overcoming obstacles, winning out over setbacks, achieving impossible objectives.
The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It's as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer.
It is best to love wisely, no doubt, but to love foolishly is better than not to be able to love at all.

Draw from others the lesson that may profit yourself.
If they move, kill ' em.
Pike Bishop, The Wild Bunch (1969)
Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not, unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
If you face a delicate situation, don't go into it wearing your spurs or you'll rip it apart. Instead, dress for the occasion. Cloak yourself in diplomacy. Vest yourself with wisdom, and wear a smile.
Anne Mackay Thompson
Be strong ! You talk of ghosts and devils. We are the living devils. The sign of life is strength and growth. The sign of death is weakness. Whatever is weak, avoid ! It is death. If it is strength, go down into hell and get hold of it ! There is salvation only for the brave. "None but the brave deserves the fair". None but the bravest deserves salvation.
Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it, and it darts away.
Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end, an end which was already but too easy to arrive at
Henry David Thoreau
Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your heart or burn down your house, you can never tell.
Defeat is not bitter unless you swallow it.
Love is smiling on the inside and out.
To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people And the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure The betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded
Ralph Waldo Emerson
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man.
The only abnormality is the incapacity to love.
The unselfish effort to bring cheer to others will be the beginning of a happier life for ourselves.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Always do the right thing.
Da Mayor, Mookie (1989)
One of the strongest motives that lead men to art and science is escape from everyday life with its painful crudity and hopeless dreariness, from the fetters of one's own ever-shifting desires. A finely tempered nature longs to escape from the personal life into the world of objective perception and thought.
It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.
Religion is being and becoming. Religion is the manifestation of the divinity already in man.
Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart.
The empires of the future are the empires of the mind.
All work is empty save when there is love.
People who exercise their embryonic freedom day after day, little by little, expand that freedom. People who do not will find that it withers until they are literally 'being lived'. They are acting out scripts written by parents, associates and society.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
One joy scatters a hundred griefs.
If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.
When the going gets tough the tough get going.
Joseph P. Kennedy
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken, and I'd rather remember it as it was at it's best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived
I have always depended on the kindness of strangers.
Blanche Dubois, A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)

Accept challenges, so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory.
George S. Patton
Your self-beliefs either support or undermine you.
You see, it's never the environment ; it's never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events - how we interpret them - that shapes who we are today and who we'll become tomorrow. quotes
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.
Shri Ramakrishna used to say, "As long as I live, so long do I learn". That man or that society which has nothing to learn is already in the jaws of death. Heart and core of everything here is good, that whatever may be the surface waves, deep down and underlying everything, there is an infinite basis of goodness and love.
The history of the world is but the biography of great men.
Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.
It means a great deal to those who are oppressed to know that they are not alone. And never let anyone tell you that what you are doing is insignificant. Bishop

There are no guarantees. From the viewpoint of fear, none are strong enough. From the viewpoint of love, none are necessary.
I have, for many years past, contemplated the noble races of red men who are now spread over these trackless forests and boundless prairies, melting away at the approach of civilization.
Failures don't plan to fail, they fail to plan.
It is not the job of the general to be winning. It is his job to win.
Hard work pays off.
The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will.
Effective people are not problem-minded , they're opportunity-minded. They feed opportunities and starve problems.
It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.
Good morning, Vietnam !

Do not wish to be anything but what you are, and try to be that perfectly.
St Francis De Sales
There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.
To wear your heart on your sleeve isn't a very good plan, you should wear it inside, where it functions best.
The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart.
If it is your time, love will track you down like a cruise missile.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
When one door closes, another opens. But we often look so regretfully upon the closed door that we don't see the one that has opened for us.

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6: 34
I always tried to turn every disaster into an opportunity.
John Davidson Rockefeller
Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage -- pleasantly, smilingly, non-apologetically -- to say 'no' to other things. And the way you do that is by having a bigger 'yes' burning inside. The enemy of the 'best' is often the 'good. '
Results ? Why, man, I have gotten lots of results ! If I find ways something won't work, I haven't failed
