Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of…
The trick is to enjoy life.
Don’t wish away your days, waiting for better ones ahead.
( Marjorie Pay Hinckley )
Not many people see what you do for them.
They only see what you don’t do.
Power does not corrupt.
Perhaps the fear of a loss of power.

It’s an American issue.

Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving.
We get stronger and more resilient.
( Steve Maraboli )
Choose carefully who you argue or fight with.
Some people are just not worth the energy.
Just as we learn that some dogs bite and some cats scratch.
We learn that if we trust certain people again we’ll get hurt.
We know from daily life that we exist for other people first of all, for whose smiles and well-being our own happiness depends.
( Albert Einstein )
Of all the people in the world, the rich and the wealthy who have the most, still want the most.
Sometimes we just need someone to listen.
And at the end of the day, all we need is to feel we are needed.
The lord will not forsake us.
If we put our trust in him, if we will pray to him, if we will live worthy of his blessings, He will hear our prayers.
( Gordon B. Hinckley )
Our destiny is often decided by others.
By the good, and sometimes the bad, people that we allow into our lives.
No matter how much money we have, or how powerful we are, we all leave this world through the same door.
Quietly endure, silently suffer and patiently wait.
( Martin Luther King Jr. )
To be nobody but yourself is one of the hardest battles.
The moment you accept yourself as you are is the moment you begin to enjoy life.
Don’t allow your pride to get in the way of what you want.
Otherwise you may close the door on something you will one day regret.
Once we accept that life isn’t fair, forgetting and forgiving sometimes becomes much easier.
We lead our lives like water flowing down a hill, going more or less in one direction until we splash into something that forces us to find a new course.
( Arthur Golden )
My hope still is to leave the world a bit better than when I got here.
( Jim Henson )
Wisdom is knowing I am nothing.
Love is knowing I am everything.
And between the two my life moves.
( Nisargadatta Mahara )
Men are the ones who are given strength by Allah to protect women.
So if you hurt a woman, what kind of man are you?
( Women of Jannah )
The hardest thing about the road not taken is that you never know where it might have led.
( Lisa Wingate )
The mistakes I’ve made are dead to me.
But I can’t take back the things I never did.
( Jonathan Safran Foer )
We all have what everyone else has.
We have a lifetime.
A short moment in time in this wonderful and beautiful world.
Unless you let go.
Unless you forgive yourself.
Unless you realise that situation is over.
You cannot move forward.
When you find yourself in need of spiritual nourishment, it is in the opportunities to serve others that you will find the abundance you seek.
( Steve Maraboli )
Everyone we meet is probably afraid of something.
Probably loves something.
And has probably lost something.
Many of us have secret sorrows that others know nothing about.
Dear Lord, When I sleep, let me dream all the time so that not one little piece of living is ever lost.
Wisdom is having things right in your life and knowing why.
( William Edgar Stafford )
When you’re good, bad things can still happen.
And if you’re bad, you can still be lucky.
( Barbara Kingsolver )
I just want to have enough money to be able to decide for myself if money solves everything.
I sit beside the fire and think of people long ago.
And people that will see a world that I will never know.
( J R R Tolkien )
Political correctness is a cancer destroying our society.
Made worse by a media too frightened to print or to speak the truth.
Never complain, never explain.
Resist the temptation to defend yourself or make excuses.
( Brian Tracy )
I can’t always explain what I mean, and even if I could, I don’t think I’d bother.
It’s not what people say out of their mouth is important.
It’s what they whisper to themselves.
Regardless of sunshine or rain, be thankful for another great day.
And treat life as the ultimate gift.
Because it is.
( Pablo )
The whole point in life, the only point, is to find the things that matter, hold on to them, and fight for them.
Live your life as intensely as you can and keep whatever emotions you feel as a gift from God.
I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence.
But it comes from within.
It is there all the time.
( Anna Freud )
It’s what you do afterwards that counts.
That’s when you find out who you are.
Many of us have spent much of our life waiting.
Waiting to become something else.
Waiting for the life we thought we could have.
Changing is what people do when they have no options left.
( Holly Black )
Most of us take our lives for granted.
We don’t realise how fortunate we are to have been born in a safe and civilised country.
If we are able to always concentrate on the present, and not the past or the future, we will be happy.
Life is the moment we’re living now.
Everything changes except the love.
( Santosh Kalwar )
Pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another.
When you feel good help someone else to feel good too.
When another is lost help them find the way.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down ‘happy’.
( John Lennon )
The sole purpose of some people is to serve as a warning to others.
Again and again I will suffer.
Again and again I will get back on my feet.
I will not be defeated.
I won’t let my spirit be destroyed.
( Banana Yoshimoto )
You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.
( Nancy D. Solomon )
Boring people don’t bore me.
Because I never listen to them.
So that the new generation that will be born can enjoy happiness.
To pay the cost we will have to shoulder corpses and cross a river of blood.
( Hiromu Arakawa )
Listen to silence, it sometimes has the loudest voice.
And is often trying to tell us something.
Courage doesn’t always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow.”
( Mary Anne Radmacher )
