A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others.
Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.
Always continue the climb. It is possible for you to do whatever you choose, if you first get to know who you are and are willing to work with a power that is greater than ourselves to do it.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Always desire to learn something useful.
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Saint Teresa of Avila
Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.
Be thine own palace, or the world’s thy jail.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Norman Vincent Peale
Crave for a thing, you will get it. Renounce the craving, the object will follow you by itself.
Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.
Do not weep; do not wax indignant. Understand.
Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
A man sooner or later discovers that he is the master-gardener of his soul, the director of his life.
A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Any idiot can face a crisis – it’s day to day living that wears you out.
Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
Henry David Thoreau
Every man dies. Not every man really lives.
Everything has been figured out, except how to live.
Everything in life is luck.
Fortunately analysis is not the only way to resolve inner conflicts. Life itself still remains a very effective therapist.
He who has a why to live can bear almost any how.
Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.
I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.
E. B. White
I do not regret one moment of my life.
I have a simple philosophy: Fill what’s empty. Empty what’s full. Scratch where it itches.
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
I love life because what more is there.
I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
Sometimes your whole life boils down to one insane move…AVATAR
The only way to achieve the impossible is to believe it is possible…ALICE IN WONDERLAND
It is not our abilities that show what we truly are, it is our choices…HARRY POTTER
If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything…BACK TO THE FUTURE
A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same.
A friend should be one in whose understanding and virtue we can equally confide, and whose opinion we can value at once for its justness and its sincerity.
A friend to all is a friend to none.
A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often – just to save it from drying out completely.
A friendship founded on business is better than a business founded on friendship.
John D. Rockefeller
A hug is like a boomerang – you get it back right away.
A man’s growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world.
A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold H. Glasow
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
But friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life, and thanks to a benevolent arrangement the greater part of life is sunshine.
But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Don’t walk behind me; I may not lead. Don’t walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Fear makes strangers of people who would be friends.
Friends and good manners will carry you where money won’t go.
Friends are born, not made.
Henry B. Adams
Friendship and money: oil and water.
Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies.
Friendship is held to be the severest test of character. It is easy, we think, to be loyal to a family and clan, whose blood is in your own veins.
Charles Alexander Eastman
