If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he had imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
I have learned this at least by my experiment: that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors
to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.
As you make your way through life, let this ever be your goal, keep your eye upon the dougnut and not upon the hole.
Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.
We have committed the Golden Rule to memory; let us now commit it to life.
Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.n
The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.
You are to gather up the joys and sorrows, the struggles, the beauty, love, dreams and hopes of every hour that they may be consecrated at the altar of daily life.
The real sin against life is to abuse and destroy beauty, even one's own--even more, one's own, for that has been put in our care and we are responsible for its well-being
May the sun bring you new energies by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away any worries you may have. May gentle breezes refresh your soul and all the days of your life, may you walk gently through the world and know its beauty.
Happiness doesn\'t depend on the actual number of blessings we manage to scratch from life, only our attitude towards them.
I hear an almost inaudible but pervasive discontent with the price we pay for our current materialism. And I hear a fluttering of hope that there might be more to life than bread and circuses.
Our lives are fed by kind words and gracious behavior. We are nourished by expressions like 'excuse me,' and other such simple courtesies... Rudeness, the absence of the sacrament of consideration, is but another mark that our time-is-money society is lacking in spirituality, if not also in the enjoyment of life.
I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, for I shall not pass this way again.
Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, musicthe world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time; for that's the stuff life is made of.
I believe every person is created as the steward of his or her destiny with great power for a specific purpose to share with others, through service, a reverence for life in a spirit of love.
If we are to survive, we must have ideas, vision, and courage. These things are rarely produced by committees. Everything that matters in our intellectual and moral life begins with an individual confronting his own mind and conscience in a room by himself.
Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment, and especially on their children, than the unlived life of their parents.
The lesson which life repeats and constantly enforces is 'look under foot.' You are always nearer the divine and the true sources of your power than you think. The lure of the distant and the difficult is deceptive. The great opportunity is where you are. Do not despise you own place and hour. Every place is under the stars, every place is the center of the world.
There is no security in life, only opportunity.
To improve the golden moment of opportunity, and catch the good that is within our reach, is the great art of life.
You will give yourself peace of mind if you perform every act of your life as if it were you last.
