"There are those that look at things the way they are and ask why... I dream of things that never were and ask why not."
How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the strong. Because someday you will be all of these.
Don’t aim at success-the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensure, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it.
The temptation to quit will be greatest just before you are about to succeed.
If I am to know the will of God, I must have the right attitude toward life. I must first of all know what life is, and to know the purpose of my existence.
Tonight go to sleep as though your whole world has been dropped.
Die to the past and in the morning wake up as a new man in a new morning.
Don’t let the same one who went to bed, get up. Let him go to sleep for good. Let the one who is
ever-new and ever-fresh awake instead.
Most of the shadows of life are caused by standing in our own sunshine.
Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.
Goodness is the only investment that never fails.
