Give and Take... For to the bee a flower is a fountain if life And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving is a need and an ecstasy. - Kahlil Gibran

Don't wait for extraordinary circumstance to do good; try to use ordinary situations.
The fragrance always stays in the hand that gives the rose.
Doctors are men who prescribe medicines of which they know little, to cure diseases of which they know less, in human beings of whom they know nothing.
Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.
I am responsible. Although I may not be able to prevent the worst from happening, I am responsible for my attitude toward the inevitable misfortunes that darken life. Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have ? life itself.
When you're prepared, you're more confident. When you have a strategy, you're more comfortable.
Not everything which is bad comes to hurt us.
It is not the place, nor the condition, but the mind alone that can make anyone happy or miserable.
Never mind your happiness; do your duty.
You always have to give 100 percent, because if you don't, someone, someplace, will give 100 percent and will beat you when you meet.
forgiveness is me giving up the right to hurt you for hurting me.
I didn't find my friends; the good Lord gave them to me.
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
