It is when

It is when you are most desperate, that you are closest to reaching your dreams.

The eye

The eye with which I see God
Is the same eye with which God sees me.

~Meister Eckhart

Every choice

Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?

~Eric Allenbaugh

Only one thing

Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention.

~Greg Anderson

Be who you are

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

~Dr. Seuss

One's dignity

One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.

~Michael J. Fox

We'll see things

We'll see things today we shouldn't have to see, but listen up, we'll do it together. We'll be together, and we'll all come back together.

Always concentrate

Always concentrate on how far you have come, rather than how far you have left to go. The difference in how easy it seems will amaze you.

~Heidi Johnson

Consult not

Consult not your fears but your hopes and dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do.

~Pope John XXIII

The point is

The point is not to pay back kindness but to pass it on.

~Julia Alvarez

No one will ever

No one will ever see me quit, because I simply won't. If I start something, I will finish it and do it well.

~Steve Belmarsh

One of the most

One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go.

~Sheila Murray Bethel


Courage is about doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.

~Eddie Rickenbacker

Let the world know

Let the world know you as you are, not as you think you should be, because sooner or later, if you are posing, you will forget the pose, and then where are you?

~Fanny Brice

The difference

The difference between holding on to a hurt or releasing it with forgiveness is like the difference between laying your head down at night on a pillow filled with thorns or a pillow filled with rose petals.

~Loren Fischer

We are

We are very apt to over-rate the importance of our actions.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do not think of your fault

Do not think of your fault; still less of others' faults. Look for what is good and strong and try to imitate it. Your faults will drop off like dead leaves when their time comes.

~John Ruskin


Forgiveness means letting go of a hurtful situation and moving on with your own happiness.

~Amanda Ford

Things will happen

Things will happen in your life that you can't stop, but that's no reason to shut out the world. There's a purpose for the good and for the bad.

~"Crazy Pete" Sims

It's not where you're from

It's not where you're from; it's where you're going. It's not what you drive; it's what drives you. It's not what's on you; it's what's in you. It's not what you think; it's what you know.

~Gatorade commercial

The culture we have

The culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. And you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn't work, don't buy it.

~Morrie Schwartz

You can't

You can't win the raffle if you don't buy the ticket.

~Ally McBeal

Sometimes you cannot believe what you see. You have to believe what you feel.

~Morrie Schwartz

You may have

You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.

~Mary Pickford

When faced

When faced with a challenge, look for a way, not a way out.

~David Weatherford


Do, or do not.
There is no try.

A political victory

A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick or the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

If a man

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare composed poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.'

~Martin Luther King, Jr.

These questions

These questions which we lust to ask about the future are a confession of sin. God has no answer for them. No answer in words can reply to a question of things. It is not in an arbitrary "decree of God" but in the nature of man, that a veil shuts down on the facts of tomorrow; for the soul will not have us ready any other cipher than that of cause and effect. By this veil which curtains events it instructs the children of men to live in to-day.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson
