The world is the great gymnasium where we come to make ourselves strong.
The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.
Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.
The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.
Whatever lifts the corners of your mouth, trust that.
We have been called to heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart, and to bring home those who have lost their way.
I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.
It's what you learn after you know it all that counts.
Always remember you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think and twice as beautiful as you’ve ever imagined.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
Life is entrusted to man as a treasure which must not be squandered, as a talent which must be used well.
Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other.
Believe you can and you're halfway there.
I will never be by violence constrained to do anything.
Don't just read the easy stuff. You may be entertained by it, but you will never grow from it.
I know in my heart that man is good, that what is right will always eventually triumph, and there is purpose and worth to each and every life.
A painter should begin every canvas with a wash of black, because all things in nature are dark except where exposed by the light.
When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.
I trust that everything happens for a reason, even if we are not wise enough to see it.
