We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.
Don’t cry because it’s over. Smile because it happened.
We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
George Washington Carver
Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.
It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.
You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
There are no great limits to growth because there are no limits of human intelligence, imagination, and wonder.
It’s easy to get negative because you get beat down. You go through a few disappointments and it’s easy to stay in that negative frame of mind. Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is a whole cliche, but your attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.
A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
Just because something doesn’t do what you planned it to do doesn’t mean it’s useless.
Thomas A. Edison
Just because a man lacks the use of his eyes doesn’t mean he lacks vision.
People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Work for something because it is good, not just because it stands a chance to succeed.
