Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal. Live this day as if it were your last. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed.
Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'
You change your life by changing your heart.
Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.
It takes as much energy to wish as it does to plan.
Experience is not what happens to you. It is what you do with what happens to you. Don’t waste your pain; use it to help others.
Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.
The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.
Do not worry at all about negative thoughts, and do not try to control them. All you have to do is begin to think good thoughts each day. Plant as many good thoughts as you can in each day. As you begin to think good thoughts you will attract more and more good thoughts, and eventually the good thoughts will wipe out the negative thoughts altogether.
I smile like a flower not only with my lips but with my whole being.
