Inspirational Thoughts

Wednesday, April 08, 2009

"What is appealing is the idea of attaining the unattainable and learning from it. Once you obtain a fantasy it becomes a reality and that reality is not as exciting as your fantasy. Through the fantasies you learn to appreciate your own realities."

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. Albert Einstein

"Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves." Dale Carnegie

"Years wrinkle the skin but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul." Samuel Allman

"Positive thinking. . . is the key which unlocks the doors of the world" Samuel McChord Crothers

"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so." William Shakespeare

"The greater the difficulty, the greater the glory." Cicero

"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. . . Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement; nothing can be done without hope." Helen Keller

"You must accept that you might fail; then, if you do your best and still don't win, at least you can be satisfied that you tried. If you don't accept failure as a possibility, you don't set high goals, you don't branch out, you don't try--you don't take the risk." Rosalynn Carter

"The glory is not in never failing, but in rising every time you fail." Chinese Proverb

"If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself but to your own estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment." Marcus Aurelius

Namaste -
"I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells. I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth, of light and of peace. When you are in that place in you and I am in that place in me, We are One." by Ram Das
