When you find yourself stressed,
ask yourself one question:
Will this matter in 5 years from now?
If yes, then do something about the situation.
If no, then let it go.
Maturity is achieved when a
person accepts life as full of tension.
Joshua L. Liebman
Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.
Henry David Thoreau
It is not work that kills men; it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more upon a man than he can bear. Worry is the rust upon the blade. It is not the revolution which destroys the machinery but the friction. Fear secretes acids; but love and trust are sweet juices
Henry Ward Beecher
Inspiration and genius--one and the same.
To find what you seek in the road of life,
the best proverb of all is that which says:
"Leave no stone unturned."
Edward Bulwer Lytton
A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them.
Leonard Louis Levinson
In the long run the pessimist may be proved right, but the optimist has a better time on the trip.
Daniel L. Reardon
Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!
If you would create something,
you must be something.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Every artist was first an amateur.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The more difficulties one has to encounter, within and without, the more significant and the higher in inspiration his life will be.
Life has no smooth road for any of us; and in the bracing atmosphere of a high aim the very roughness stimulates the climber to steadier steps, till the legend, over steep ways to the stars, fulfills itself.
W. C. Doane
Do we not all agree to call rapid thought and noble impulse by the name of inspiration?
The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. The ordinary objects of human endeavour - property, outward success, luxury - have always seemed to me contemptible.
No great man ever complains of want of opportunities.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Men do less than they ought,
unless they do all they can.
Men's best successes come after their disappointments.
Henry Ward Beecher.
Let thy words be few.
Ecclesiastes 5:2 from Words of Wisdom
Happy are those who dream dreams and are ready to pay the price to make them come true.
Leon J. Suenes
The power of imagination makes us infinite.
First say to yourself what you would be;
and then do what you have to do.
The man who doesn't relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on.
