Maybe in a way all living things are like flickering flames in a precarious night, always on the verge of being extinguished. Whether we kindle slowly but steadily, or go out in a brilliant burst of light and color, is our choice. Perhaps the most important choice we’ll ever have.
The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.
Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.
The weakest ones are the wickedest cruel
When the strongest ones in gentleness rule!
Belief and faith are great, but very few people have been led astray by thinking for themselves.
Grace is what picks me up and lifts my wings high above and I fly! Grace always conquers! Be graceful in everything; in anger, in sadness, in joy, in kindness, in unkindness, retain grace with you!
You may bend, but that will not bring your life to an end. Your refusal to give up is the key; your rose flowers blossom from the thorns of life!
When she was a child, my love carried a road-map in her hand the way other girls carried handkerchiefs.
Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying.
