Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of…
Sometimes our worst problems are between what we know and how we feel.
There is only one reason to look over your shoulder.
And that is to see how far you have come.
Hell is truth seen too late.
Every mistake, and every failed attempt, is another step forward.
Sometimes it’s not the person you miss.
It’s just the feeling you had when you were with them.
Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now.
They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were.
So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
( Bill Gates )
We are here to add what we can to, not to get what we can from, life.
Never give up on your heart in your struggle for peace, decency and truth.
It’s not the pace of life I mind.
It’s the sudden stop at the end.
Surround yourself with a circle of people that make you happy.
As you get older you find out that true happiness is not in how much you make or how many degrees you have or how big your house is or how fancy your car is.
It’s finding peace and joy and a calmness in your life that will soon become the most important thing to you.
Your family are what matters to you, love is what matters to you.
Things that are of quality, not of quantity.
( Rose Winfold )
Just remember that everything is real, but not everything is true.
Never change who you are just because someone has a problem with you.
I had rather be shut up in a very modest cottage, with my books, my family, and a few old friends, dining on simple bacon, and letting the world roll on as it liked, than to occupy the most splendid post which any human power can give.
( Thomas Jefferson )
False words are not only evil, they infect the soul with evil.
One of the secrets of life is to make people laugh.
Before you judge me.
Please understand I don’t give a damn what you think.
( Len Firswood )
Kind deeds give strength to ourselves and inspire kindness in others.
Look not at the greatness of the evil past, but the greatness of the good to follow.
The foolish person seeks happiness in the distance.
The wise person grows it under his feet.
I have known the joy and pain of friendship.
I have served and been served.
I have made some good enemies for which I am not a bit sorry.
I have loved unselfishly, and I have fondled hatred with the red-hot tongs of Hell.
( Zora Neale Hurston )
Friends who don’t help us when we need help were not friends in the first place.
Faith is building on what you know is here, so you can reach what you know is there.
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you may save yourself from hours of sorrow.
The worst memories stick with us, while the nice ones always seem to slip through our fingers.
( Rachel Vincent )
Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty.
They merely move it from their faces into their hearts.
In every winter’s heart there is a quivering spring.
And behind the veil of each night there is a smiling dawn.
I am not afraid of tomorrow for I have seen yesterday.
I have today and I know Him who holds tomorrow so I know tomorrow will be beautiful for me.
( Jaachynma N.E. Agu )
One of the big mistakes in life is not learning the lesson.
You may not be where you want to be yet.
But you should be closer than you were yesterday.
Aim for what you want and the year will all make a sense.
( Cecelia Ahern )
There are always reasons why we don’t have what we want.
And sometimes the reason is just because it’s not meant to be.
In the very shadows of doubt a thread of reason, so to speak, begins, by whose guidance we shall escape to the clearest light.
Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of the heart.
Mindfulness helps us get better at seeing the difference between what’s happening and the stories we tell ourselves about what’s happening.
( Sharon Salzberg )
The best things we have to hold onto in life are each other.
Let your problems and worries grow wings and fly away.
Everything great was accomplished by fools who dreamed.
( Emily Dana )
Be someone who brings the sweetest touches to everything they do and the happiest smiles wherever they go.
The greatest prison you could ever live in is the fear of what other people think.
The first and fundamental law of Nature, which is, to seek peace and follow it.
Stop looking for your soulmate.
Start looking for your soul, mate.
The day will come when what is ethical matters as much as what is profitable.
I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone.
You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.
( Oscar Wilde )
Those who we think are strong may cry themselves to sleep.
And those who we think are weak may slay dragons.
Just because someone doesn’t talk about their problems, doesn’t mean they don’t have any.
Forget what’s gone.
Appreciate what you have now.
And look forward to what may come.
It is not wisdom but authority that makes a Law.
It really is a big world out there, stuffed with possibility and other people.
And our life, our routine, is a mere speck.
The best feelings in life are those that have no words to describe them.
The only things we should regret in life are the risks we did not take.
Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be.
( Eckhart Tolle )
Every story has an ending.
But in life every ending is a new beginning.
Some people may grow tired of the messages you write, the words you speak, your intensity.
They are not your people.
Happiness radiates like the fragrance from a flower and draws all good things towards you.
( Maharishi Mahesh Yogi )
Our uniqueness is God-given.
Never compare yourself with others.
It’s not who you are that stops you risking something.
It’s who you think you’re not.
Fear of things invisible is the natural seed of that which every one in himself calleth religion.
Our broken world waits in darkness for the light that is within us.
You are not crazy.
You are awake in an insane world.
For that exact reason, many people will call you crazy.
Every flower is a soul blossoming in Nature.
( Gerard De Nerval )
Faith and fear both demand you believe in something you cannot see.
Be like the stars.
Shine your own light and don’t be afraid of the darkness.
Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens.
It’s ok if you fall down and lose your spark.
Just make sure that when you get back up, you rise as the whole damn fire.
( Colette Werden )
Who you were, who you are, and who you will become, are all different people.
We should live our life so that we earn and keep the respect of those people we respect.
Liberty, to define it, is nothing other than the absence of impediments to motion.
True power is sitting back and observing everything with logic.
True power is restraint.
If words control you then everyone can control you.
It is better to have one moment of wonder than a lifetime of nothing special.
To ignore evil is to become an accomplice to it.
( Martin Luther King Jr. )
