A lie has speed, but truth has endurance.
Edgar J. Mohn
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.
Laughter is the best medicine.
That first peak is the best place to pause and look back, to see if you took the easiest route, to learn the lessons from the first climb. And it is the best place to examine the terrain ahead, to change your plans and goals, to take a deep breath and begin climbing again.
Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.
But we can not avoid conflict, conflict with society, other individuals and with oneself.

As a principle-centered person you try to stand apart from the emotion of the situation and from other factors that would act on you, and evaluate the options. Looking at the balanced whole -- the work needs, the family needs, the other needs that may be involved, and the possible implications of the various alternatives -- you'll try to come up with the best solution taking all factors into consideration.
Time is an equal opportunity employer. Each human being has exactly the same number of hours and minutes every day. Rich people can't buy more hours. Scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow. quotes

One can spend a lifetime assigning blame, find the cause 'out there' for all the troubles that exist. Contrast this with the 'responsible attitude' of confronting the situation, bad or good, and instead of asking, 'What caused the trouble ? Who was to blame ?' asking 'How can I handle this present situation to make the most of it ? What can I salvage here ?'
Some people dream of success while others wake up and work hard at it.
Love is not enough. It must be the foundation, the cornerstone- but not the complete structure. It is much too pliable, too yielding.
You don't understand ! I could've had class. I could've been a contender. I could've been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you'll help them to become what they are capable of becoming.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4: 4-7
If I'd been a ranch, they would've named me the Bar Nothing.

Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing.
Reverend Sykes, To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)
Love starts with a smile, grows with a kiss and ends with a tear.
Know thyself was the inscription over the Oracle at Delphi. And it is still the most difficult task any of us faces. But until you truly know yourself, strengths and weaknesses, know what you want to do and why you want to do it, you can not succeed in any but the most superficial sense of the word. The leader never lies to himself, especially about himself, knows his flaws as well as his assets, and deals with them directly. You are your own raw material. When you know what you consist of and why you want to make of it, then you can invent yourself.
