-You are not the momentary whim of a careless creator experimenting in the laboratory of life; You were made with a purpose.
-I seek constantly to improve my manners and graces, for they are the sugar to which all are attracted.
-Realize that true happiness lies within you. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share. Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself.
-To be always intending to make a new and better life but never to find time to set about it is as to put off eating and drinking and sleeping from one day to the next until you’re dead.
-Every memorable act in the history of the world is a triumph of enthusiasm. Nothing great was ever achieved without it because it gives any challenge or any occupation, no matter how frightening or difficult, a new meaning. Without enthusiasm you are doomed to a life of mediocrity but with it you can accomplish miracles.
-Take the attitude of a student, never be too big to ask questions, never know too much to learn something new.
-Always render more and better service than is expected of you, no matter what your task may be.
-Love doesn’t sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread: remade all the time, made new.
-Always seek out the seed of triumph in every adversity.
