Our first journey is to find that special place for us.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

Accomplishment of purpose is better than making a profit.
You know when you've read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.
Love is like the wild rose-briar. Friendship like the holly-tree. The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms, but which will bloom most constantly ?
Life is what you make it.
A good idea is never lost. Even though its originator or possessor may die, it will someday be reborn in the mind of another.
The ladder of success is never crowded at the top.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Let us more and more insist on raising funds of love, of kindness, of understanding, of peace.
Bitterness imprisons life, love releases it. Bitterness paralyzes life, love empowers it. Bitterness sours life, love sweetens it. Bitterness sickens life, love heals it. Bitterness blinds life, love anoints it's eyes.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step
To gain more abundance a person needs more skills and needs to be more creative and cooperative.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face.
Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.
Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.
Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning, they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.

He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is ; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.
Strength is life, weakness is death. Expansion is life, contraction is death. Love is life, hatred is death.
Platitudes ? Yes, there are platitudes. Platitudes are there because they are true.
If you don't quit, and don't cheat, and don't run home when trouble arrives, you can only win.
It's a funny thing about life, if you refuse to accept anything but the best. You very often get it.
W. Somerset Maugham
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success.
Romance is the glamour which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.
The crocodile is only strong in the water.
When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.
Norman Vincent Peale
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
If our thoughts and hopes are elsewhere, it is impossible to set our faces steadily toward the work required of us.
You must think of failure and defeat as the spring boards to new achievements, and to the next level of accomplishment.
Never spend your money before you have it.
I'll be taking these huggies and whatever cash you got.
H. I. McDunnough, Raising Arizona (1987)
Drop the idea that you are Atlas carrying the world on your shoulders. The world would go on even without you. Don't take yourself so seriously.
Norman Vincent Peale
We judge ourselves by what we feel capable of doing, while others judge us by what we have already done.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Norman Vincent Peale
Opportunity may knock only once, but temptation leans on the doorbell.
Many great ideas go unexecuted, and many great executioners are without ideas. One without the other is worthless.
After every happiness comes misery, they may be far apart or near. The more advanced the soul, the more quickly does one follow the other. What we want is neither happiness nor misery. Both make us forget our true nature, both are chains -- one iron, one gold , behind both is the Atman, who knows neither happiness nor misery. These are states, and states must ever change , but the nature of the atman is bliss, peace, unchanging. We have not to get it, we have it, only wash away the dross and see it.
You haven't failed until you quit trying.
The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.
The best and most beautiful things in the world can not be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.
Are we to love only those who deserve our love ? Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you , that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.
Love inspires, illumines, designates and leads the way.
Mary Baker Eddy
What is strength without a double share of wisdom ?
The shortest way to do many things is to do only one thing at a time.
Wisdom is supreme , therefore make a full effort to get wisdom. Esteem her and she will exalt you , embrace her and she will honor you. Wise men speak because they have something to say, fools because they have to say something.
Mama says, Stupid is as stupid does.
Young Forrest Gump, Forrest Gump (1994)
Love is the flower of life, and blossoms unexpectedly and without law, and must be plucked where it is found, and enjoyed for the brief hour of its duration.
There is only one way to happiness, and that is to cease worrying things which are beyond the power of our will.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.
Steve McCroskey, Airplane (1980)
The great end of education is to discipline rather than to furnish the mind, to train it to the use of its own powers rather than to fill it with the accumulation of others.
I love you, I am at rest with you, I have come home.
Dorothy L. Sayers
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.
There is a great man who makes every man feels small. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great.
G. K. Chesterton
As strong as my legs are, it is my mind that has made me a champion.
Smile ! and the world will smile with you !
Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.
Mark Victor Hansen
How often we fail to realize our good fortune in living in a country where happiness is more than a lack of tragedy.
It is not our purpose to become each other , it is to recognize each other, to learn to see the other and honor him for what he is.
Dependent people need others to get what they want. Independent people can get what they want through their own efforts. Interdependent people combine their own efforts with the efforts of others to achieve their greatest success.
Common looking people are the best in the world : that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them.
Successful people make decisions quickly (as soon as all the facts are available) and change them very slowly (if ever). Unsuccessful people make decisions very slowly, and change them often and quickly.
The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances if there is any reaction, both are transformed.
Young love is a flame , very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.
Henry Ward Beecher
Knowledge work is all about how we use one another's time and attention. Given just minutes, good leaders can affect how we think, what we decide, and, ultimately, what we create.
The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
