What a great ideas. Here's a few I've picked up over the years:
"...You only find real peace of heart and mind when you follow what you know is right for you, so seek and go on seeking until you have found your specific way and then follow it. It may mean having to stand on your own and do something strange in the eyes of others, but be not daunted. Do whatever it is because you know within that it is right for you and that only the very best will come out of it."
You are never given a dream without also being given the power to make it true..
You may have to work for it however.
The way I see it,
if you want the rainbow, you gotta
put up with the rain.
I have some unknown ones....but they are so good, I have to include them:
It takes courage to grow up and turn out
to be who you really are.
In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.
Experience is not what happens to you;
it is what you do with what happens to you.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Whether you think you can, or whether you
think you can't, you are right.
Rules for Being Human
You will receive a body.
You may like it or hate it,
but it will be yours for your entire lifetime.
You will learn lessons.
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called life.
Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.
You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.
There are no mistakes, only lessons.
Growth is a process of trial, error and experimentation.
The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately succeeds.
A lesson is repeated until learned.
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.
When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.
Learning lessons does not end.
There is no part of life that does not contain lessons.
If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.
"There" is no better than "here."
When your "there" has become a "here," you
will simply obtain another "there" that will,
again, look better than "here."
Others are merely mirrors of you.
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
What you make of life is up to you,
You have all the tools and resources you need.
What to do with them is up to you.
The choice is yours.
Your answers lie inside you.
The answers to life's questions lie inside you.
All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.
