Below are some of my favorite quotes.
I have many on many different subjects… but these ones are the ones that move me,
that motivate and inspire me.
Everyone needs a little inspiration sometimes.
If it wasn’t true, I wouldn’t have found these.
Don’t wait for life to happen, live now!
Try to see things the impossible as a possibility
and start creating your own opportunities…
I had to make my own living and my own opportunity!
But I made it!
Don’t sit down and wait for the opportunities to come.
Get up and make them!
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
Thich Nhat Hanh
“Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression.
It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends.
It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment.”
“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet.
Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened,
ambition inspired, and success achieved.”
“The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion.
The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.”
Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama
“What you thought before has led to every choice you have made,
and this adds up to you at this moment.
If you want to change who you are physically, mentally, and
spiritually, you will have to change what you think.”
Dr. Patrick Gentempo
“Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime,
Therefore, we are saved by hope.
Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
Therefore, we are saved by faith.
Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone.
Therefore, we are saved by love.
No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own;
Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.”
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment,
or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past,
not to worry about the future, nor to anticipate troubles,
but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
“Desire is the starting point of all achievement, not a hope, not a wish,
but a keen pulsating desire which transcends everything.”
“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things.
When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
Norman Vincent Peale
“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible,
is rarely a function of our true capability.
It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.”
Please believe in me like I believe in you,
what you do and what you have been through
does not define who you are…
you will keep changing and growing
with every mistake, every tear, every loss
every success and every gain. Don’t let your past
effect your future and remember
to love yourself before trying to love anyone else.
True happiness starts within.
You will become who you are supposed
to be if you pay attention and learn from
your mistakes, there are no instructions to life
Just do the best you can…
Nobody said it would be easy,
we just need to make it worth it.
Believe in all these powerful words,
take this all in and make it happen!
That is all…
