Love the giver more than the gift.
Success means doing the best we can with what we have. Success is the doing, not the getting ; in the trying, not the triumph. Success is a personal standard, reaching for the highest that is in us, becoming all that we can be.

Power is not really good or bad , it is neutral. Power itself is not negative or positive, although our feelings about it may be.

To be in love is merely to be in a state of perpetual anesthesia. To mistake an ordinary young man for a greek god or an ordinary young woman for a goddess.
We are ever free if we would only believe it, only have faith enough. You are the soul, free and eternal, ever free, ever blessed. Have faith enough and you will be free in a minute.

If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don't. If you'd like to win, but think you can't it's almost a cinch you won't. Life's battles don't always go to the stronger or faster man, but sooner or later the man who wins is the one who thinks he can.
If you know peace, then you thrive , if you know contentment, then you are rich.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.
"I can't do it" never accomplished anything ; "I will try" has performed miracles.

The loving are the daring.
Some people enter our lives and leave almost instantly. Others stay, and forge such an impression on our heart and soul, we are changed forever.
Whether or not we realize it each of us has within us the ability to set some kind of example for people. Knowing this would you rather be the one known for being the one who encouraged others, or the one who inadvertently discouraged those around you ?

In order to grasp the reality, we must see the possibilities. In the present, a formulation of the possibilities is the area in which I gain uncertainty concerning what I decide, without a vision of the possibilities, I act blindly, only a knowledge of the possibilities enables me to know what I am actually doing.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again.
