Synergy is everywhere in nature. If you plant two plants close together, the roots commingle and improve the quality of soil so that both plants will grow better than if they were separated. If you put two pieces of wood together, they will hold much more weight than the total of the weight held by each separately. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. One plus one equals three or more.
Roll with the punches.
If a profound gulf separates my neighbor's belief from mine, there is always the golden bridge of tolerance.

Find out what it means to die - not physically, that's inevitable - but to die to everything that is known, to die to your family, to your attachments, to all the things that you have accumulated, the known, the known pleasures, the known fears. Die to that every minute and you will see what it means to die so that the mind is made fresh, young, and therefore innocent, so that there is incarnation not in a next life, but the next day.
Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose -- a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.
Happiness itself does not stay -- only moments of happiness do.
I love you. I've loved you since the first moment I saw you. I guess maybe Ive even loved you before I saw you.

Martin Luther King Jr.
Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars.
Charlotte Vale, Now (1942)
You do not pay the price of success, you enjoy the price of success.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though chequered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows not victory or defeat.
Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime.
Rupert Pupkin, The King Of Comedy (1983)

Our minds are as different as our faces we are all traveling to one destination, happiness, but few are going by the same road.
Charles Caleb Colton
I swore never to be silent whenever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
Men are often capable of greater things than they perform. They are sent into the world with bills of credit, and seldom draw to their full extent.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, and sweat.
Those who wish to sing, always find a song.
One lie ruins a thousand truths.
Let no one who loves be called unhappy Even love unreturned has its rainbow.

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
This is the true measure of love, when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could ever have loved so before us, and that no one will ever love in the same way after us.
Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe
Intelligence without ambition is like a bird without wings.
C. Archie Danielson
Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.
W. Clement Stone
Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.
The vedanta recognizes no sin, it only recognizes error. And the greatest error, says the vedanta is to say that you are weak, that you are a sinner, a miserable creature, and that you have no power and you cannot do this and that.
