Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.
Robert H. Schuller
If a man can realize his divine nature with the help of an image, would it be right to call that a sin ? Nor, even when he has passed that stage, should he call it an error. Man is not traveling from error to truth, but from truth to truth, from lower to higher truth. To him all the religions from the lowest fetishism to the highest absolutism, mean so many attempts of the human soul to grasp and realize the infinite, each determined by the conditions of its birth and association, and each of these marks a stage of progress, and every soul is a young eagle soaring higher and higher, gathering more and more strength till it reaches the glorious sun.

Man's mind, once stretched by a new idea, never regains its original dimensions.

Submit to love faithfully and it gives a person joy. It intoxicates, it envelops, it isolates. It creates fragrance in the air, ardour from coldness, it beautifies everything around it.
There is no one giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps.
Peter A. Cohen

I have nipples, Greg. Could you milk me ?
Jack Byrnes, Meet The Parents (2000)
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.

Busier than a cat covering up shit on a tile floor!
Larry the Cable Guy
Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.
It is not what we get. But who we become, what we contribute... that gives meaning to our lives.
We conceal it from ourselves in vain, we must always love something. In those matters seemingly removed from love, the feeling is secretly to be found, and man can not possibly live for a moment without it.
I always say a kiss on the hand might feel very good, but a diamond tiara lasts forever.
Lorelei, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953)
A general is just as good or just as bad as the troops under his command make him.
General Douglas MacArthur
Love is the emblem of eternity, it confounds all notion of time, effaces all memory of a beginning, all fear of an end.

Tomorrow will be like today. Life wastes itself while we are preparing to live. Our friends and fellow-workers die off from us.
