" I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it, and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else: hard work and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't."

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

" Don't try to make everyone else happy. Ultimately you will fail. Instead try to make yourself happy because you are the one who is most important and if you are happy, others will be happy for you."
Written in 2007 by C. Huddle --- Virginia
It just basically applies to life.


" Compassion shown to others in their time of need makes the problems you may be facing seem more bearable."

" Your worries seem important now but they will be forgotten and replaced by different ones later. Do not focus on what you have no control over. Focus on how to improve your life, instead of why you were wronged. This is the first step towards personal growth."

" When a person rediscovers that his deepest Nature is one with the All, he is relieved of the burdens of time, of anxiety, of worry; he is relieved from the chains of alienation and separate self-existence."
Ken Wilber --- Submitted by Jagdish Kaviraj --- India


" If you come to judge someone by what others say, thinking you know everything about that person before giving them a chance to show you otherwise, how will you ever truly understand who they really are? Next time, before judging someone else, judge your own character and how you are approaching that person."
Written in 2013 by Jesse Marie Kavumpurath --- Connecticut


" Do not judge others by your own thoughts. They are living a different life than you are. What might be good for one person may not be good for another. What might be bad for one person might change another person's life. Allow people to make their own mistakes or their own decisions. We learn and grow with each decision and/or mistake that we make...but again, what might be a mistake for you would be a blessing for someone else."

" Whatever fills your spirit overwhelms your soul and influences your actions."
Written in 2013 by Sheye Hassan --- Nigeria

" Life is strange sometimes! It can be cruel, rewarding, fun and down right disappointing. Take every day for what it provides and learn and grow from it. Don't live in the past, live for the present and hopefully it will bring a brighter future. Have a positive productive day and know that you do matter and that you are loved."

" If everyone approves your dream, my dear, you need to check that dream up because there's something wrong with it. If it is what you can achieve when you put one and two together, then that's no dream neither. A dream is way bigger than your resources. It is something that kills your sleep. So when you have such a dream that people can't comprehend, smile in the midst of impossibility because the ONE who gave you that gigantic dream, sure knows ways to bring it to pass. Dream on."
Written in 2013 by Smek Uwakina --- Nigeria

" The greatest difficulty in life always comes right before the birth of a dream on the inside. Before you see a new level of God's amazing favor, why be surprised if things come against you trying to discourage you? People may even try to talk you out of your dreams, to convince you to settle where you are. Don't give in for you are one step closer to your destiny."

" Choose to make a difference instead of choosing to be indifferent today."
Written in 2013 by Caroline Naoroji --- Virginia

" Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give."

I know that life is better than this. Get out of bed. Take a walk outside in the beautiful sunshine, take a deep breath and breathe in the grace and wonders of life. Smile and laugh with those whom you call friends. I know, whenever you're down, in that cold place, throw away your journal and just think of life and how outstanding it is to be alive."

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

" Start believing in yourself and others will too."

" Open your eyes to a better life. It may hurt at first, but that's because the future is so bright."
Copyright © 2007 Jordan Porcher


" I know it's hard, I know you are afraid, I know the circumstances are completely against you and I know that you don't have anyone to cry or laugh with... I know you failed before, I know how bad you felt at that time an I know it's something you wouldn't like to experience again... But I also know it's your choice; it's your choice to feel the way you feel, it's your choice to let fear stand in your way, it's your choice to let your past haunt you and it's your choice to let your loneliness sabotage your hope... And I know it will be your choice when you stand up and do what you have to do, I know it will be your choice when you start to be positive and believe in yourself, I know it will be your choice when you decide to give your ABSOLUTE BEST and never quit NO MATTER WHAT. Yes, my friend, I know it, and I know YOU KNOW IT TOO."

" Life and love are like the changing of the leaves during the midst of change of season. We experience the change of colors within the fallen leaves, thinking its gone and fallen without solid ground. But as the season comes the next year around, new beauty within emotion which the tree blooms, brings back the bold and blissful colors of life and heart that entwine within the branches of love and spirit."
Written in 2013 by Amy Masella --- Illinois


" All the wealth in the world cannot help one Indian village, if the people are not taught to help themselves. Our work should be mainly education, both moral and intellectual. Educate the people, so that they may learn to be self-sufficient, frugal. If the poor cannot come for education, education should reach the poor."

"Find what you love and put your heart and soul, mind and body into it. When all the rivers of blood, sweat, and tears have watered the seeds of this passion, this love, and grown it into the fully bloomed flower of your dreams, there will come a pause, where the sheer sight, sound, smell, and feel of it will be, simultaneously, that of a peaceful calm and an exhilarating joy."

" Life is to short to be negative and judgmental of others. We all have our faults and flaws, things said, things done that we are not proud of. When you think about it, it basically comes right down to learning as you live life and go through experiences! You learn who wants to share your world of inner friends and family and those trials and tribulations you have to be a better person. You learn who is worth being in your life and who truly wants to be and at what capacity. You learn who wants to be a part of your positive energy and the love and understanding you can pay forward to them. Life is tough! Love one another, breathe and live like its your last day everyday!"

" Stop being afraid of rocking the boat; go ahead rock a little. Take an uncalculated risk, own a life long dream. Don't map it out or plan your reasoning's of how or why, just do it. Trust that you can achieve what you set out to accomplish. You're continuously thinking thoughts of great achievements and success, dare to be daring and live like your thoughts. Your life failures are proof/evidence that you lived trying and overcame the fears of failure. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." Trust your very own abilities!"

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

" I will awake every day knowing, that as soon as my feet touch the ground, that what I make of it, is up to me. I will not expect anything from anyone. I will give - with no intentions of receiving. I will listen when someone just needs to talk. I will smile at a stranger. I will be accepting of challenges. I will accept change. I will love myself and others. I will laugh when I want to cry and smile when I want to frown. I will live each day like no other. This day belongs to me. I will value each day that I am given. I WILL make a difference. I will LIVE my life and enjoy it...one day at a time."

" Treat others the way you want to be treated and you'll gain the respect and will reflect the energy you bestow to others. What you experience in life is but what we throw into our universe.

Create a meaningful life worthy of living."

" If we could only see our lives in reverse, we would not waste a minute dwelling and waiting for time that is always late on arrival."
Written in 2013 by Donna Avvento --- Connecticut



" The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true - action precedes motivation. You have to 'prime the pump' and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals. Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

" Take command of your thoughts because what you think about, you do bring about. If you are going about your day thinking about how much you dislike your life, your job, your relationships etc, the people you deal with will pick up on this and they may shut down to you and withhold opportunities as a result. Be present with people and remember whatever you're thinking about, becomes the reality you're projecting."

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

Written in 2013 by Miles Patrick Yohnke --- Canada


" When I was a kid, I thought I had my life figured out. I knew where I was going. I was sure of whom I was and what I was. I was wrong. See, life is a journey of twist and turns that mold who we are; however, it is not the twist and turns which mold us, but rather, how we take and handle the twist and turns thrown at us. It was not until life threw me flat on my face that I truly discovered who I am and what I am. I am a perpetual work-in-progress. And you know what? I am quite all right with that."

Be Fearless: If you make only one resolution this year, let it be to live boldy. You control this moment: Rather than cautiously test the water, dive straight into life with freeing abandon. Imagine the person you want to be and the life you want to live, they simply commit to them. Believe in yourself. Embrace your beauty. Discover a new passion. And whatever you do, wherever you go, don't be afraid to make a splash.

(LOVE this one)
" All your life you are told the things you cannot do.
All your life they will say you're not good enough
Or strong enough or talented enough.
They'll say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight
Or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this.
THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no
Until all the no's become meaningless.
All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly.
They will tell you no
AND YOU WILL TELL THEM YES."
--- Nike Ad --- Sent in by Jenn, Age 19 --- Pennsylvania


" Obstacles are put in our way to see if we really want something

DESCRIPTIVE LOVE

" When love enters a room
She is dressed in comfortable garments
Her garments shine with understanding
Her heart reaches out to anyone in need
Love is wrap in commitment
Love will always be your friend
Mercy is in her hands
Truth is on her lips
A word of kindness on her tongue
Love will not be out done
The story of love may be told like this
In the mist of betrayal, despair, heartache,
Failure and success love was there
Moreover love will conquer all
Remember love will not leave you in despair
In times when you are not treated fair love will be there
Love is dress for success and will pass each test
Hardship will come your way
Dress yourself in love today"

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

" There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life."
John Lennon --- Submitted by Lauren Covington --- New Jersey

" Life is a journey, not a single destination
We are all searching for happiness.

It's ok to feel 'lost' sometimes,
As it is in these lost times that we go inside ourselves
And find more of our hidden potential.

The next time you feel like life is going nowhere,
Take some quiet time to listen to the awesome power inside you.

It's there, just waiting to come out."

" We begin from the recognition that all beings cherish happiness and do not want suffering.

The wiser course is to think of others when pursuing our own happiness."

" Life gets lighter when you learn when to use the power of goodbye. It's not always going to be easy but if the bigger picture says, "You're better off without it"....Then why hold on?

So please know when to:

Forgive Yourself
Forgive others
Let love go if it is not mutual or in your best interest
Severe ties to friends that are fruitless or harmful
Deaden habits that are of no value
Switch lanes on professions that do not lead to your dreams

Some bridges should actually be burnt. Identify them and do not be scared to light the fire."

(legit) it takes to archive them or get closer to them. Ensure that you make something count for this day to get

to your destiny, even if its only efforts today but ultimately the results will prevail."

Do not stop enjoying the wonders of life despite the inevitable hurting that impairs our soul. Hence, it does not make you less of a person when you weep in tears and are in distress. Nonetheless, learn to withstand the stings of time; rise on your feet for no one can ever bring back the soul in you and the beauty of life except you, and you and you."

Words.of.Encouragement
" We are human. We are not perfect. We are alive. We try things. We make mistakes. We stumble. We fall. We get hurt. BUT...We rise again. We try again. We keep learning. We keep growing. And... We are thankful for this priceless opportunity called life."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by George Wachirah --- Kenya


" Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourself. Therefore, make your own future. There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself�. Burst your own cocoon and come out as the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth."

I have begun everything with the idea that I could succeed, and I
never had much patience with the multitudes of people who are always
ready to explain why one cannot succeed. I have always had a high
regard for the man who could tell me how to succeed.
