"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

~Jimi Hendrix

"The only limits are the ones we impose on ourselves."

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered.

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends

and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.

Be honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight.

Create anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous.

Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, will often be forgotten.

Do good anyway.

Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.

Give your best anyway.

In the final analysis, it is between you and God.

It was never between you and them anyway."
~Mother Teresa

"The mind is its own place, and in it self

Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven."
~Milton, Paradise Lost

"Be the change you want to see in the world."

~Mahatma Gandhi
“It’s not how long you live, but how you live.”

"When children learn that happiness is not found in what a person has but in who that person is,
When they learn that giving and forgiving are more rewarding than taking and avenging,
When they learn that suffering is not eased by self-pity, but overcome by inner resolve and spiritual
When they learn that they can't control the world around them, but they are the masters of their own
When they learn that relationships will prosper if they value friendship over ego, compromise over
pride, and listening over advising,
When they learn not to hate a person whose difference they fear, but to fear that kind of hate,
When they learn that there is pleasure in the power of lifting others up, not in the pseudo-power of
pushingthem down,
When the learn that praise from others is flattering but meaningless if it is not matched by self-respect,
When they learn that the value of a life is best measured not by the years spent accumulating
possessions, but by the moments spent giving of one's self – sharing wisdom, inspiring hope, wiping
tears and touching hearts,
When they learn that a person's beauty is seen not with the eyes but with the heart; and that even
though time and hardships may ravage one's outer shell, they can enhance one's character and
When they learn to withhold judgment of people, knowing everyone is blessed with good and bad
qualities, and that the emergence of either often depends on the help given or hurt
inflicted by others,
When they learn that every person has been given the gift of a unique self, and the purpose of life is to
share the very best of that gift with the world,
When children learn these ideals and how to practice them in the art of good living, they will no longer
be children – they will be blessings to those who know them, and worthy models for all the world."
~David L. Weatherford

"I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore
that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being,
let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it,
for I shall not pass this way again."
~Mahatma Gandhi

"In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path

in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive
resolves itself into crystal clearness.
Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth."
~Mahatma Gandhi

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed

by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
~Mark Twain

"Smart men learn from their mistakes;

wise men learn from other peoples' mistakes."

"We are not human beings on a spiritual journey.

We are spiritual beings on a human journey."
~Tielhard de Chardin

"By friendship you mean the greatest love, the greatest usefulness,
the most open communication, the noblest sufferings, the severest
truth, the heartiest counsel, and the greatest union of minds of
which brave men and women are capable."
~Jeremy Taylor

"Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until
they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born."
~Anais Nin

"What is a friend? A single soul dwelling in two bodies."


"A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even
though he knows that you are slightly cracked."

"Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing. There is a time for silence. A time to let
go and allow people to hurl
themselves into their own destiny. And a time to prepare to pick up
the pieces when it's all over."
~Gloria Naylor

"There are those who pass like ships in the night

who meet for a moment, then sail out of sight.
With never a backwards glance of regret
folks we know briefly, then quickly forget.
Then there are those friends who sail together
through quiet waters and stormy weather
helping each other through joy and through strife
and they are the kind that give meaning to life."

"You know you love someone when you want them to be happy even when their happiness means that
you aren't a part of it."

"A life with love will have some thorns, but a life without love will
have no roses."

"Young lovers seek perfection. Old lovers learn the art of sewing
shreds together and seeing beauty in the multitude of patches."
~How to Make an American Quilt

"Love…is when you look into someone's eyes, and suddenly, you go all the way inside…to their soul…and
you both know, instantly."

"If you love something set it free if it returns it was meant to be.
If it continues to fly let it soar, and have faith that God has something better in store."

"Love is not a passing emotion -- and love is not a temporary

infatuation -- Love is a responsible and free decision to bind oneself
completely, "in good times and in bad," to one's partner....
the gift of oneself to the other.

"The course of true love never did run smooth...

swift as a shadow short as any dream."
~"A Midsummer Night's Dream," William Shakespeare

"You don't get to choose, you just fall in love. And you get this
person who is all wrong and all right at the same time. And you know
that you love them so much except sometimes they just drive you
completely insane. And no one can explain it. And the reason its so
confusing is because its love. But, if love didn't have challenges,
what would be the point?"
~Party of Five
"I've noticed that being with you, I smile a little more often,
I anger a little less quickly, the sun shines a little brighter
and life is so much sweeter. For being with you takes me to a
different place. A place called love."

"People need to be loved the most when they deserve it the least."

"I am of nothing special; of this I am sure. I am a common man with

common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name
will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been
~Nicholas Sparks

"Why do we always love the ones who hurt us,

and hurt the ones who love us?"

"Watching you walk out of my life does not make me bitter or cynical
about love. But rather makes me realize that if I wanted so much to
be with the wrong person how beautiful it will be when the right one
comes along."
