“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”

“When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion.”

“Whatever you are, be a good one.”

Nelson Mandela

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

“A winner is a dreamer who never gives up.”

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

Oscar Wilde

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.”

Winston S. Churchill

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

“A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”

“If you are going through hell, keep going.”
