To understand your parents love you must raise children yourself.
For things to change you've got to change. Otherwise, nothing much will change
Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.
We rob banks.
Clyde Barrow, Bonnie And Clyde (1967)
I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday.
Put off for one day and ten days will pass by.
If you don't learn from your mistakes, there's no sense making them.
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this ? And radio operates exactly the same way : you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.
Love is a butterfly, which when pursued is just beyond your grasp, but if you will sit down quietly it may alight upon you.
We are stripped of every attribute of freedom and eligibility for legal self defence. Our property may be plundered before our eyes, violence may be committed on our persons, even our lives may be taken away, and there is none to regard our complaints. We are denationalized; we are disfranchised.
Chief John Ross
We cannot really love anybody with whom we never laugh.
Don't water your weeds.
The only abnormality is the incapacity to love.
Progress is the activity of today and the assurance of tomorrow
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Personal leadership is not a singular experience. It is, rather, the ongoing process of keeping your vision and values before you and aligning your life to be congruent with those most important things.
Private victories precede public victories. You can't invert that process any more than you can harvest a crop before you plant it.
Positive attitudes come in unlimited quantities. Everybody can have one free !
End your day by privately looking directly into your eyes in the mirror and saying, 'I love you ! ' Do this for thirty days and watch how you transform.
Mark Victor Hansen
Fortify yourself with contentment, for this is an impregnable fortress.
I feel I have this great creative and spiritual force within me that is greater than faith, greater than ambition, greater than confidence, greater than determination, greater than vision. It is all these combined. Whether it is a godhead or not, I feel this great force, this untapped power, this dynamic something within me. This feeling defies description, and there is no experience with which this feeling may be compared. It is something like a strong emotion mixed with faith, but a lot stronger.
Happiness is a state of activity.
A generous heart, kind speech, and a life of service and compassion are the things which renew humanity.
Happiness consists of a solid faith, good health, and a bad memory.
When you arrive at your future, will you blame your past ?
He didn't get all of those injuries from a fall.
The daily grind of hard work gets a person polished.
A good idea is never lost. Even though its originator or possessor may die, it will someday be reborn in the mind of another.
You do not lead by hitting people over the head -- that's assault, not leadership.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
We don't have to take our clothes off to have a good time
I saw and loved.
We all love best not those who offend us least, nor those who have done most for us, but those who make it most easy for us to forgive them.
I have seen so many of these, and lived with them, and travelled with them, and oftentimes felt as if I should starve to death on an equal allowance, that I am fully convinced I am correct in saying that the North American Indians, taking them in the aggregate, even where they have an abundance to subsist on, eat less than any civilized population of equal numbers, that I have ever travelled amongst.
Sports serve society by providing vivid examples of excellence.
George F. Will
Challenges make you discover things about yourself that you never really knew. They're what make the instrument stretch-what make you go beyond the norm.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Don't fall victim to your own melodrama. Keep things in perspective. The odds are that your problem is solvable. Address the solution and don't dwell on the problem to the point at which it paralyzes you.
My faith is in the younger generation, the modern generation, out of them will come my workers. They will work out the whole problem, like lions.
How a man plays a game shows something of his character, how he loses shows all of it.
We do our best that we know how at the moment, and if it doesn't turn out, we modify it.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I feel like a tiny bird with a big song !
Jerry Van Amerongen
Integrity is telling myself the truth. And honesty is telling the truth to other people.
Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your good health has vanished.
Nuptial love makes mankind, friendly love perfects it, but wanton love corrupts and debases it.
If you mean to profit, learn to please.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Platitudes ? Yes, there are platitudes. Platitudes are there because they are true.
To know me is to love me.
The ideas I stand for are not mine. I borrowed them from Socrates. I swiped them from Chesterfield. I stole them from Jesud. And I put them in a book. If you don't like their rules whose would you use ?
I have noticed that folks are generally about as happy as they make up their minds to be.
From success to failure is one step , from failure to success is a long road.
It's hard to tell your mind to stop loving someone, when your heart still does.
Marcel Marceau, Silent Movie (1976)
At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet.
I can change. I can live out my imagination instead of my memory. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past.
Love those who love you.
Don't wait for a funeral to pay a compliment. You may not make it in time.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.
To live happily with other people, ask of them only what they can give.” Tristan Bernard
Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end, an end which was already but too easy to arrive at
Henry David Thoreau
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul.
David O. McKay
I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That's were the fun is.
One way to become enthusiastic is to look for the plus sign. To make progress in any difficult situation, you have to start with what's right about it and build on that.
Norman Vincent Peale
All men are created equal. Government by consent of the governed. Give me liberty or give me death. And those are not just clever words, and those are not just empty theories.
When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.
Eddie, you're a born loser.
Bert Gordon, The Hustler (1961)
Most of the exercise I get is from standing and walking around laboratory tables all day. I derive more benefit and entertainment from this than some of my friends and competitors get from playing games like golf.
Success leaves clues.
Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I've come to believe that all my past failure and frustration were actually laying the foundation for the understandings that have created the new level of living I now enjoy.
Lovers who love truly do not write down their happiness.
Each person's life is a story that is telling itself in the living.
The ancestor of every action is a thought.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The way we see the problem is the problem.
Basing our happiness on our ability to control everything is futile.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Love is like playing the piano. First you must learn to play by the rules, then you must forget the rules and play from your heart.
Be Here Now.
Beware what you set your heart upon, for it surely shall be yours.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It doesn't matter how much milk you spill as long as you don't lose the cow.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
You were made perfectly to be loved and surely I have loved you, in the idea of you, my whole life long.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
When you fish for love, bait with your heart, not your brain.
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.
He that has done nothing has known nothing.
We struggle with the complexities and avoid the simplicities.
Norman Vincent Peale
There is not a breathing of the common wind that will forget thee.
Love is a fruit in season at all times.
We came to enjoy, we are being enjoyed. We came to rule, we are being ruled. We came to work, we are being worked. All the time, we find that. And this comes into every detail of our life.
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.
You don't get to choose how you're going to die, only how you're going to live.
The struggle of the mind to keep itself free from every sort of bondage -- to remain curious, open, unsatiated in all its relations with nature -- is tenfold more difficult than the cultivation of a stable, satisfying point of view, but a thousandfold more precious.
Get busy livin, or get busy dyin'.
Andy, The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
The foolish man seeks happiness in the distance, the wise grows it under his feet.
Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible - it can not be seen or measured - yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more than any material possession ever could.
Barbara De Angelis
If I had more time, I'd write a shorter speech.
Watch your thoughts, they become words. Watch your words, they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits, they become character.Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Most of us are frightened of dying because we don't know what it means to live. We don't know how to live, therefore we don't know how to die. As long as we are frightened of life we shall be frightened of death.
