St. Francis of Assisi
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.
Start every day with an inspiring thought.
Start where you are. Distant fields always look greener, but opportunity lies right where you are. Take advantage of every opportunity of service.
Strangers are just friends waiting to happen. To become a good man, one must have faithful friends, or outright enemies.
Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.
Success does not come to those who wait... and it does not wait for anyone to come to it.
Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. The soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.
Talent is what you possess; genius is what possesses you.
That's the risk you take if you change: that people you've been involved with won't like the new you. But other people who do will come along.
Henry Ward Beecher
The art of being happy lies in the power of extracting happiness from common things.
