Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you.
Not because they are not nice, but because you are nice.

Being honest, being compassionate, and defending the truth.
Not much else matters.
( Rose Winfold )

He is not rich that possesses much, but he that is content with what he has.

If you would know what the lord God thinks of money, you have only to look at those to whom he gives it.

The quickest thing to spread is “RUMOUR”.
Ignore it!

People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use.
( Soren Kierkegaard )

One of the great pleasures in life is doing what others say you cannot do.

Life sometimes says yes and gives us what we want.
And sometimes says no and gives us something better.
And sometimes says wait and gives us the best.

At any given moment you have the power to say, “this is not how the story is going to end”.
( Eileen Hutchison, 1926-2008 )

You don’t need to be special to become special.
Be yourself, be ordinary, and you will become special.

It may take only a few seconds to hurt people you love or care about.
But it may take years to heal the pain.

If you want to be boring, leave nothing unsaid.

I tend to carry the weight of the world on my shoulders and have a heavy heart.
I think that’s what can happen when you have a strong sense of compassion and empathy with other people.
You can’t turn a blind eye and brush it under the carpet, regardless of how upsetting something is.
( Alesha Dixon )

Some thoughts are too deep to be expressed and too strong to be suppressed.

The really poor aren’t those who never have a coin to spare.
They are those who never walk on grass or breathe fresh air.

Thousands upon thousands are yearly brought into a state of real poverty by their anxiety not to be thought poor.

Life is like an ice-cream.
Eat it before it melts.

When we look back on our tears, some may make us laugh.
And looking back on our laughs, some may make us cry.

It doesn’t matter what you say you believe – it only matters what you do.
( Robert Fulghum )

The greatest wealth is contentment with a little.

It’s not a mistake to make a mistake.
But it’s a mistake to repeat a mistake.

Always remember we are born to live and not living because we are born.

A smile is a language even a child understands.
It happens in a flash but the memory of it may last forever.

When you make mistakes say you are sorry.
Always give second chances, have fun, give hugs, forgive.
Always be patient, kind, and compassionate.

There is enough in the world for everyone’s need but not for everyone’s greed.

In life you have two choices.
You can stay down or you can get up stronger.
I always say it’s important to face things and learn from them.
Life is never going to be smooth, and the true test of someone’s character is how they move on from the difficult times.
Life’s just a series of chapters, and it’s all about moving forward and not carrying around baggage.
( Alesha Dixon )

Sometimes we are wrong, but in the right way.

Be careful how you talk to a stranger.
Because you never really know if you are talking with an angel.

We only have control over ourselves and how we choose to be.
As for others, we can only choose to accept them or walk away.

Real heroes don’t have a name on the back of their jersey.
They have their country’s flag on the arm of a uniform.
( Robert William Hutchison, 1922-2006 )

Love, but don’t allow your heart to be abused.
Trust, but don’t be naive.
Give, but don’t allow yourself to be used.
Listen to others, but don’t lose your own voice.

A true friend warms you with their presence, trusts you with their secrets, and remembers you in their prayers.

Sometimes we forget to thank the people who make our lives happy.

I didn’t grow up with a sense of security.
It’s something I’ve had to work on and I believe now I’ve got to a point in my life where I would say I am fearless.
I spent too many years worrying and being anxious.
But I’ve learnt that regardless of what challenges you face, there’s no dark rain cloud the sun can’t break through.
( Alesha Dixon )

Every woman deserves a man that can make her forget her heart was ever broken.

Someone remembers, someone cares.
Your name is whispered in someone’s prayers.

Goodbyes are not forever.
Goodbyes are not the end.
They simply mean I will miss you until we meet again.

A memory of all those we love who have left too soon.

I hold you close within my heart and there you will remain.
To walk with me throughout my life until I see you again.

Promise yourself to make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

Compassion is one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives.

There are five very important words in life.
Love. Honesty. Truth. Respect. Compassion.
Without these in our life, we have nothing.

No human race is superior.
No religious faith is inferior.

All collective judgments are wrong.
Only racists make them.

( Elie Wiesel )

Every time you are able to find some humour in a difficult situation, you win.

Never say sorry for being honest.

No matter how good or how bad you think life is, wake up each day and be thankful for life.
Someone, somewhere else, is fighting to survive.

Sometimes the prettiest smiles hide the deepest secrets.
Sometimes the prettiest eyes have cried the most tears.
Sometimes the kindest hearts have felt the most pain.

We must always take sides.
Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.

Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.
( Elie Wiesel )

We never lose friends.
We simply learn who our real friends are.

Those who are strongest are the ones who feel pain, understand it, and accept it.

Don’t let negative and toxic people rent space in your head.
Raise the rent and kick them out.

You may never have proof of your importance but you are more important than you think.
There are always those who couldn’t do without you.
The rub is that you don’t always know who.

( Robert Fulghum )

The girl who laughs and talks a lot and seems very happy, is also the girl who may cry herself to sleep.

Don’t ever mistake silence for ignorance.
Don’t ever mistake calmness for acceptance.
Don’t ever mistake kindness for weakness.

If you’re going to be a smart-ass, first you have to be smart, otherwise you’re just an ass.

Never underestimate the power of ignorance.
( Rose Winfold )

One lie is all it takes for a person to lose interest in you.
The best thing to do is always be upfront, be real, and tell the truth.

The strongest are those who cry and shed tears, and then get up to fight again.

Don’t expect everyone to understand your journey.
Especially if they’ve never had to walk your path.

When you hold a grudge, you want someone else’s sorrow to reflect your level of hurt but the two rarely meet.
( Steve Maraboli

My life is full of empty promises and broken dreams.

There are two ways to be fooled.
One is to believe what isn’t true.
The other is to refuse to believe what is true.

( Soren Kierkegaard, 1813-1855 )
