Disappointment is one story and giving up is the end of that story.
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins-not through strength, but through persistence.
It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
Henry David Thoreau
If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thru’ chinks of his cavern.
The only limits to the possibilities in your life tomorrow are the buts you use today.
I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.
Harry Emerson Fosdick
Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
A smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
One of the most adventurous things left us is to go to bed. For no one can lay a hand on our dreams.

Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t you’re right.
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.
M. Kathleen Casey
The block of granite, which was an obstacle in the path of the weak, becomes a stepping-stone in the path of the strong.
Have the determination of a mirror. It never loses its ability to reflect, even if it is broken into thousand pieces.
I would rather fail in a cause that will ultimately triumph than to triumph in a cause that will ultimately fail.
A man is not old until regrets start taking place of dreams.
Speak when you are angry, you will make the best speech you will ever regret.
I am only one; but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something. I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
Just for today I will be happy. Just for today I will try to live through this day only, not to tackle my whole life problem at once. I can do things for twelve hours that would appall me if I had to keep them up for a lifetime. Just for today…

Many of the things you can count, don’t count. Many of the things you can’t count, count
There is no future, there is no past, I live this moment as my last
You have to know you can win. You have to think you can win. You have to feel you can win.
Sugar Ray Leonard
Our greatest battles are that with our own minds.
It’s not if glass is half full or half empty that matters. It’s whether your goal is to ration what’s left or to fill it up again.
We are not held back by the Love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.
We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
