In some measure all that comes after you is going to be influenced and determined by the kind of life you make in your business of living. When viewed from such a height of vision, even the seemingly least important life gathers round it a glory which truly passes understanding.
Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.
—Eleanor Roosevelt (American First Lady)
A man takes a drink, the drink takes another, and the drink takes the man.
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
—Mother Teresa (Albanian Catholic Humanitarian)
Silence is ever-speaking; it is a perennial flow of language; it is interrupted by (human) speaking. These words obstruct that mute language.
—Ramana Maharshi (Indian Hindu Mystic)
Learning is not compulsory… neither is survival.
—W. Edwards Deming
Aspire, break bounds. Endeavor to be good, and better still, best.
—Robert Browning (English Poet)
If your dream is big enough, the facts don’t count.
If you’re not using your smile, you’re like a man with a million dollars in the bank and no checkbook.
All you’ll get from strangers is surface pleasantry or indifference. Only someone who loves you will criticize you.
