Go cherish your soul; express companions; set your habits to a life of solitude; then will the faculties rise fair and full within.
You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.
Life begets life. Energy becomes energy. It is by spending oneself that one becomes rich.
The men and women who have the right ideals ... are those who have the courage to strive for the happiness which comes only with labor and effort and self-sacrifice, and those whose joy in life springs in part from power of work and sense of duty.
This life is not for complaint, but for satisfaction.
We lift ourselves by our thought. We climb upon our vision of ourselves. If you want to enlarge your life, you must first enlarge your thought of it and of yourself. Hold the ideal of yourself as you long to be, always everywhere.
A dream is your creative vision for your life in the future. You must break out of your current comfort zone and become comfortable with the unfamiliar and the unknown.
The wisest keeps something of the vision of a child. Though he may understand a thousand things that a child could not understand, he is always a beginner, close to the original meaning of life.
If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go
on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.
Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. The spring rains will come again
True hope dwells on the possible, even when life seems to be a plot written by someone who wants to see how much adversity we can overcome True hope responds to the real world, to real life; it is an active effort
Hope is one of those things in life you cannot do without.
A ship ought not to be held by one anchor, nor life by a singe hope.
The observation of nature is part of an artist's life, it enlarges his form [and] knowledge, keeps him fresh and from working only by formula, and feeds inspiration.
Most of life is routine - dull and grubby, but routine is the momentum that keeps a man going. If you wait for inspiration you'll be standing on the corner after the parade is a mile down the street.
Take up one idea! Make that idea your life ,Think of it .Dream of it,live on that idea.Let the brain,muscles,nerves every part of your body be full of that idea and just leave every other idea alone.This is the way to success.
Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure , the process is its own reward.
The happiest moments of my life have been the few which I have passed at home in the bosom of my family.
Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do,cause hate in your heart will consume you too.
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
Live as long as you may, the first twenty years are the longest half of your life.
For many people,
an excuse is better than an achievement because
an achievement, no matter how great,
leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future
but an excuse can last for life."
If there is no passion in your life, then have you really lived? Find your passion, whatever it may be. Become it, and let it become you and you will find great things happen FOR you, TO you and BECAUSE of you.
Life is like a coin. You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.
