Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain.
An occasional glance toward the summit keeps the goal in mind,
but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.
~Harold V. Melchert~
Do just once what others say you can't do,
and you will never pay attention to their limitations again.
~James R. Cook~
Treat people as if they were what they ought to be,
and you help them to become what they are capable of being.
~Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe~
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
~Louisa May Alcott~
And life is what we make it.
Always has been, always will be.
Every human soul has the germ of some flowers within;
and they would open if they could only find sunshine
and free air to expand in.
~Lydia T. Child~
Obstacles don't have to stop you.
If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up.
Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.
When you follow your bliss..
doors will open where you would not have thought there would be doors;
and where there wouldn�t be a door for anyone else.
The sky is the daily bread of the eyes.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~
We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.
What we do today, right now,
will have an accumulated effect on all our tomorrows.
The ideals which have always shown before me
and filled me with the joy of living are goodness,
beauty and truth.
Find the seed at the bottom of your heart
and bring forth a flower.
