Happiness does not depend on what happens outside of you but on what happens inside of you; it is measured by the spirit with which you meet the problems of life.
Harold B. Lee
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.
The future is called “perhaps,” which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the important thing is not to allow that to scare you.
Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.
The world is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.
Why are you trying so hard to fit in when you were born to stand out?
When we embrace who we are the world embraces us right back.
Amy Leigh Mercree
I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.
Put your heart, mind, and soul into even your smallest acts. This is the secret of success.
Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths. It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it. Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.
M. Scott Peck
