Life is like.....


Life is like the dice that, falling, still show a different face.
So life, though it remains the same, is always presenting different aspects.

True Family


The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other's life.
Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.

Persistence


Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence.

Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

Calvin Coolidge

A New Canvas


Each day is a new canvas to paint upon.
Make sure your picture is full of life and happiness,
and at the end of the day you don't look at it
and wish you had painted something different.

At the end....


At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict, or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent.
Barbara Bush

Each Morning.....


Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself:
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be.
Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Groucho Marx

One Earth.....


Be firm like a rock, deep and serious like the sea.
Think of the Earth as a Mother. This is one Earth.
Don't be divided by thinking of yourself as belonging to different countries.
This is one Earth.

A Spark...



At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.

Sing Your Song


"Find out what you really like if you can.
Find out what is really important to you.
Then sing your song.
You will have something to sing about and your whole heart will be in the singing."

Giving Thanks.....


You simply will not be the same person two months from now after consciously giving thanks each day for the abundance that exists in your life.
And you will have set in motion an ancient spiritual law: the more you have and are grateful for, the more will be given you.

Sarah Ban Breathnach

A Game of Cards.....


Life is like a game of cards.
The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.

Hope, Compassion......


If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all.
And so today I still have a dream.

Martin Luther King, Jr

Focus more....


"Focus more on your desire than on your doubt, and the dream will take care of itself.
You may be surprised at how easily this happens.
Your doubts are not as powerful as your desires, unless you make them so."

Enthusiam


"Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm.
Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning.
Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it you can accomplish miracles."

Og Mandino

"Throughout all history, the great wise men and teachers, philosophers, and prophets have disagreed with one another on many different things.
It is only on this one point that they are in complete and unanimous agreement.
- We become what we think about."

Create your own life and then go out and live it.

Talk to People.....


Talk to people you have never talked to before,
and actually listen.

Hold your head up because you have every right to.

Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself,
for if you don't believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you either.

One Day at a Time....


"One day at a time - this is enough.
Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone: and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come.
Live in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering."

Ida Scott Taylor
