Mother Teresa

People are often unreasonable and self-centered,
FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY!
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives,
BE KIND ANYWAY!
If you are honest, people may cheat you,
BE HONEST ANYWAY!
If you find happiness, people may be jealous,
BE HAPPY ANYWAY!
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow,
DO GOOD ANYWAY!
Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough,
GIVE YOUR BEST ANYWAY!
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God,
IT NEVER WAS BETWEEN YOU & THEM ANYWAY!

Happiness

"We either make ourselves happy or miserable. The amount of work is the same."
Carlos Casteneda

"Happiness is not an accident. Nor is it something you wish for. Happiness is something you design."
Jim Rohn

"Doing good is the only certainly happy action of a man's life."
Sir Phillip Sidney

My Comfort Zone

I used to have a comfort zone where I knew I wouldn't fail.
The same four walls and busywork were really more like jail.
I longed so much to do the things I'd never done before,
But stayed inside my comfort zone and paced the same old floor.

I couldn't let my life go by just watching others win.
I held by breath; I stepped outside and let the change begin.
I took a step and with new strength I'd never felt before,
I kissed my comfort zone goodbye and closed and locked the door.

If you're in a comfort zone, afraid to venture out,
Remember that all winners were at one time filled with doubt.
A step or two and words of praise can make your dreams come true.
Reach for your future with a smile; success is there for you!

You have not lived until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.

A thousand mile journey begins with one step.
Chinese Proverb
"Be the change you want to see in the world."
Gandhi

"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you've imagined."
Henry David Thoreau

"The most important trip you may take in life, is meeting people halfway."
Henry Boye

"Laughter is an instant vacation."
Milton Berle
"Lifestyle is the art of discovering ways to live uniquely!"
Jim Rohn

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily."
Zig Ziglar

"Whoever is happy, will make others happy, too."
Anne Frank

"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."
Eleanor Roosevelt
Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah's Ark:

1. Don't miss the boat!
2. Remember that we are all in the same boat!
3. Plan ahead. It wasn't raining when Noah built the ark!
4. Stay fit. When you're 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big!
5. Don't listen to the critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done!
6. Build your future on high ground!
7. For safety's sake, travel in pairs!
8. Speed isn't always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9. When you're stressed, float awhile!
10. Remember, the ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals!
11. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting!
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
Walt Disney
