Love all, trust a few, do wrong to no one.
—William Shakespeare (British Playwright)
There is no blade that can cut as deep as the words from one’s mouth.
That you may retain your self-respect, it is better to displease the people by doing what you know is right, than to temporarily please them by doing what you know is wrong.
—William J. H. Boetcker (American Presbyterian Religious Leader)
Your work is to discover your work, and then with all your heart to give yourself to it.
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen events, meetings and material assistance which no one could have dreamed would have come their way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe’s couplets: “Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now!”
—William Hutchinson Murray
O hidden life, vibrant in every atom;|O hidden light, shining in every creature;|O hidden love, embracing all in Oneness;|May each, who feels himself as one with Thee,|Know he is also one with every other.
—Annie Besant (British-born Indian Theosophist)
If your life is free of failures, you’re not taking enough risks.
—H. Jackson Brown, Jr. (American Author)
Treat people as they are and they will remain as they are. Treat people as they could be and they will become as they could be.
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (German Poet)
