from thousands of famous people

Wailing And Lamentation Befit Those Who Stand Before The Throne Of Life And Depart Without Leaving In Its Hands A Drop Of The Sweat Of Their Brows Or The Blood Of Their Hearts.
~ Kahlil Gibran
Success Is To Be Measured Not So Much By The Position That One Has Reached In Life As By The Obstacles Which He Has Overcome.
~ Booker T. Washington
For Every Living Creature That Succeeds In Getting A Footing In Life There Are Thousands Or Millions That Perish. There Is An Enormous Random Scattering For Every Seed That Comes To Life. This Does Not Remind Us Of Intelligent Human Design. If A Man In Order To Shoot A Hare, Were To Discharge Thousands Of Guns On A Great Moor In All Possible Directions; If In Order To Get Into A Locked Room, He Were To Buy Ten Thousand Casual Keys, And Try Them All; If, In Order To Have A House, He Were To Build A Town, And Leave All The Other Houses To Wind And Weather - Assuredly No One Would Call Such Proceedings Purposeful And Still Less Would Anyone Conjecture Behind These Proceedings A Higher Wisdom, Unrevealed Reasons, And Superior Prudence.
~ J. W. N. Sullivan
Be Alert To Give Service. What Counts A Great Deal In Life Is What We Do For Others.
~ Anonymous
Life Has No Other Discipline To Impose, If We Would But Realize It, Than To Accept Life Unquestioningly. Everything We Shut Our Eyes To, Everything We Run Away From, Everything We Deny, Denigrate Or Despise, Serves To Defeat Us In The End. What Seems Nasty, Painful, Evil, Can Become A Source Of Beauty, Joy And Strength, If Faced With An Open Mind. Every Moment Is A Golden One For Him Who Has The Vision To Recognize It As Such.
~ Henry Mille
Greater Love Hath No Man Than This, That A Man Lay Down His Life For His Friends.
~ Jesus
In Life You Can Never Be Too Kind Or Too Fair Everyone You Meet Is Carrying A Heavy Load. When You Go Through Your Day Expressing Kindness And Courtesy To All You Meet, You Leave Behind A Feeling Of Warmth And Good Cheer, And You Help Alleviate The Burdens Everyone Is Struggling With.
~ Brian Tracy
Do Not Be Too Timid And Squeamish About Your Actions. All Life Is An Experiment. The More Experiments You Make The Better. What If They Are A Little Course, And You May Get Your Coat Soiled Or Torn? What If You Do Fail, And Get Fairly Rolled In The Dirt Once Or Twice. Up Again, You Shall Never Be So Afraid Of A Tumble.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
For Any Woman To Success In American Life She Must First Do Two Things Prepare Herself For A Profession, And Marry A Man Who Wants Her To Succeed As Much As She Does.
~ Cathleen Douglas
In The Middle Of The Journey Of Our Life I Came To Myself Within A Dark Wood Where The Straight Way Was Lost.
~ Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy
Be Glad Of Life Because It Gives You The Chance To Love, And To Work, And To Play And To Look Up At The Stars.
~ Henry Van Dyke
If God Were Suddenly Condemned To Live The Life Which He Has Inflicted Upon Men, He Would Kill Himself.
~ Alexandre Dumas, fils
