"At the close of life the question will be not how much have you got, but how much have you given; not how much have you won, but how much have you done; not how much have you saved, but how much have you sacrificed; how much have you loved and served, not how much were you honored."
---Nathan C. Schaeffer
"Do not miss the purpose of this life, and do not wait for circumstance to mold or change you fate."
---Ella Wheeler Wilcox
"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare composed poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.'"
---Martin Luther King, Jr.
"Things will happen in your life that you can't stop, but that's no reason to shut out the world. There's a purpose for the good and for the bad."

It's not where you're from; it's where you're going. It's not what you drive; it's what drives you. It's not what's on you; it's what's in you. It's not what you think; it's what you know."
"It is only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on Earth and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had."
"You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call 'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down."
"When faced with a challenge, look for a way, not a way out."
"BUild upon strengths, and weaknesses will gradually take care of themselves."
