I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among my people the greatest asset I possess, and the way to develop the best in a person is by appreciation and encouragement. I believe in giving people incentive to work. So I am anxious to praise but loath to find fault. I am hearty in my approbation and lavish in my praise.
Charles M. Schwab

Sometimes the heart sees what is invisible to the eye.
H. Jackson Brown
Perfect love can not be without equality.
A friend's love says. If you ever need anything, I'll be there. True Love says, you'll never need anything, i'll be there.
If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten.
Time is free, but it's priceless. You can't own it, but you can use it. You can't keep it, but you can spend it. Once you've lost it, you can never get it back.
There is no one giant step that does it. It's a lot of little steps.
Peter A. Cohen

This isn't a dream ! This is really happening !
Rosemary Woodhouse, Rosemary's Baby (1968)
Be the ball.
Ty Webb, Caddyshack (1980)
Never close your lips to those whom you have opened your heart.

This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.
Maxwell Scott, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)

There is only one terminal dignity, love. And the story of a love is not important, what is important is that one is capable of love. It is perhaps the only glimpse we are permitted of eternity.
Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.
Now is the only time there is. Make your now wow, your minutes miracles, and your days pay. Your life will have been magnificently lived and invested, and when you die you will have made a difference.
Mark Victor Hansen
An idea can turn to dust or magic, depending on the talent that rubs against it.

We shall show mercy, but we shall not ask for it.
We have merely scratched the surface of the store of knowledge which will come to us. I believe that we are now, a-tremble on the verge of vast discoveries - discoveries so wondrously important they will upset the present trend of human thought and start it along completely new lines.
Be strong ! You talk of ghosts and devils. We are the living devils. The sign of life is strength and growth. The sign of death is weakness. Whatever is weak, avoid ! It is death. If it is strength, go down into hell and get hold of it ! There is salvation only for the brave. "None but the brave deserves the fair". None but the bravest deserves salvation.
The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.
Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.
The unexamined life is not worth living.
One machine can do the work of fifty ordinary men. No machine can do the work of one extraordinary man. One man tells a lie, dozens repeat it as the truth.
How different our lives are when we really know what is deeply important to us, and keeping that picture in mind, we manage ourselves each day to be and to do what really matters most.

I'm willing when time permits to honestly express or to open myself to you, to act as a sort of sign pole for a traveler.
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
Learning acquired in youth is an inscription on stone.
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
Kindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.
The only way to have a friend is to be one.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you can dream it, you can do it.

John Quincy Adams
Find out what it means to die - not physically, that's inevitable - but to die to everything that is known, to die to your family, to your attachments, to all the things that you have accumulated, the known, the known pleasures, the known fears. Die to that every minute and you will see what it means to die so that the mind is made fresh, young, and therefore innocent, so that there is incarnation not in a next life, but the next day.
You aren't too bright. I like that in a man.
Matty Walker, Body Heat (1981)

Miss Jean Louise, stand up. Your father's passing.
Reverend Sykes, To Kill A Mockingbird (1962)
