Find the person who will love you because of your differences and not in spite of them and you have found a lover for life.
The beauties of the world are best seen by those who strive to reach them.

Love is a verb.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
The "how" thinker gets problems solved effectively because he wastes no time with futile "ifs".

Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish. A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
John Quincy Adams
Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise.
All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Power is not really good or bad , it is neutral. Power itself is not negative or positive, although our feelings about it may be. Power is the potential to influence others for good or evil, to be a blessing or a scourge. Like nuclear energy, it can provide the electricity to light a city, or it can fuel the bomb that destroys it.
Find and use your passion, and you'll have a great career. Don't do it, you won't. It's as simple as that.
Where there's life, there's hope.
The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead. His eyes are closed.
I ain't so tough.
Tom Powers, The Public Enemy (1931)
We are at our very best, and we are happiest, when we are fully engaged in work we enjoy on the journey toward the goal we've established for ourselves. It gives meaning to our time off and comfort to our sleep. It makes everything else in life so wonderful, so worthwhile.
Our inheritance of well-founded, slowly conceived codes of honor, morals, and manners, the passionate convictions which so many hundreds of millions share together of the principles of freedom and justice, are far more precious to us than anything which scientific discoveries could bestow.
Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.
What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness ?
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.
Perhaps the feelings that we experience when we are in love represent a normal state. Being in love shows a person who he should be.
All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up.
Norma Desmond, Sunset Blvd (1950)
To become a leader, then, you must become yourself, become the maker of your own life.
Warren G. Bennis
Don't hide your light under a bushel.
The best way out is always through.
Anything that makes you weak - physically, intellectually and spiritually, reject it as poison.
The hottest love has the coldest end.
Hearts will never be practical until they are made unbreakable.
The Wizard of Oz
Life does not happen to us, it happens from us.
When I hear somebody sigh, Life is hard, I am always tempted to ask, Compared to what ?

Robert H. Schuller
Consider the little mouse how sagacious an animal it is which never entrusts his life to one whole only
You must do the things you think you cannot do.
A dream is simply reality waiting to happen.
John P. Strelecky
Reflection doesn't take anything away from decisiveness, from being a person of action. In fact, it generates the inner toughness that you need to be an effective person of action -- to be a leader. Think of leadership as some of two vectors competence: (your specialty, your skills, your know-howl) and authenticity: (your identity, your character, your attitude) .
The sun will come up tomorrow
The passionate are like men standing on their heads, they see all things the wrong way.

Only after you challenge your biases and stereotypes-- what Francis Bacon called the 'idols which beset men's minds'--can you help others do the same.
It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.
Robert H. Goddard
Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.
Nuptial love makes mankind, friendly love perfects it, but wanton love corrupts and debases it.
You will do foolish things, but do them with enthusiasm.
Stella ! Hey, Stella !
Stanley Kowalski, A Streetcar Named Desire (1951)
The way to find out about your happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you really are happy -- not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy ? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what I call 'following your bliss'. If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Wherever you are -- if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time.
He who risks and fails can be forgiven. He who never risks and never fails is a failure in his whole being.
All paths lead nowhere, so it is important to choose a path that has heart.
In the practice of tolerance, one's enemy is the best teacher.
I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore !

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.
Ferris Bueller, Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986)
Unfortunately, there seems to be far more opportunity out there than ability... . We should remember that good fortune often happens when opportunity meets with preparation.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
If thou must love me, let it be for nought, except for love's sake only. Do not say, I love her for her smile, her look, her way of speaking gently, for a trick of thought that falls in well with mine, and, certes, brought a sense of pleasant ease on such a day. For these things in themselves, beloved, may be changed, or change for thee, and love so wrought, may be unwrought so.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
You can have everything in life you want if you'll just help enough other people get what they want.
I tended to place my wife under a pedestal.
If anything goes bad, I did it. If anything goes semi-good, then we did it. If anything goes really good, then you did it.
Paul "Bear" Bryant
If you feel you have no faults there's another one.
The quality of a man's life is in direct proportion to his commitment to excellence, regardless of his chosen field of endeavor.
Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.
George S. Patton
To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable
Always bear in mind, that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other thing.
All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind, the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.
Woody, I know what your problem is. You're just like me. Trash !
Forky, Toy Story 4 (2019)
A teacher who is attempting to teach without inspiring the pupil with a desire to learn is hammering on cold iron.
Come, let us make love deathless.
Freedom is man's capacity to take a hand in his own development. It is our capacity to mold ourselves.
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.
Each day I love you more, today more than yesterday and less than tomorrow.
Keep your heart open for as long as you can, as wide as you can, for others and especially for yourself.
The bonds of matrimony are like any other bonds, they mature slowly.
Peter De Vries
A fellow doesn't last long on what he has done. He has to keep on delivering.
The truth is that we can learn to condition our minds, bodies, and emotions to link pain or pleasure to whatever we choose. By changing what we link pain and pleasure to, we will instantly change our behaviors.
No general can fight his battles alone. He must depend upon his lieutenants, and his success depends upon his ability to select the right man for the right place.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
If it weren't for graft, you'd get a very low type of people in politics.
The Politician, The Great McGinty (1940)
You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at 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
Passion is the genesis of genius.
Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal ; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.
Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.
