When a calamity is supposed to happen, what is not supposed to happen will, serving as a saving grace, preventing the calamity.
No one wants you when you’re down; people only want you when you’re up
We rejoice in public; we suffer in private
Each person has a unique form of good and a unique form of bad.
We help one another not only by words but also by our example; by being good ourselves we set an example for others to follow.
What is not worth mending, is not worth minding. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
The fight for survival is the fight for place. They who have a good place fight to keep it; they who have a bad one fight to improve it. When two people want the same place, conflict occurs.
It is in occupation that we forget the pains of the day.
Right Activity plus right amount equals a good day.
Happiness is earned through effort and sometimes through hardship.
Joy is happiness for no reason. -popular
It is in seeing others go about their day that we get the courage to go on with our own.
You have to leave home to be successful – popular
You don’t have to leave home to be successful. -Martin Sensemeyer (actor)
Life is not a blank page. While it is unscripted, it is full of roles-first, last, insider, outsider, rich, poor-and our relationships, how well we get along with each other, stem not just from our innate natures, but from whether our societal roles stand in alliance with or in opposition to one another.
We all know what others should do with their lives. It is in our own life that we do not know what to do with.
Your goals are reachable if you can think practically, if you can be patient, and if you can work hard
Do you think my friend anyone escapes his fate? -Herman Hesse (Siddhartha)
You do fit in, if you believe you do -Jeremy Linn (Basketball player)
Gifted people don’t do hard things well; they make hard things easy to do, and then they do them
It’s the look that makes one beautiful, not just the face
Objects up close may not be what they seemed from afar
Success and failure are both teachers; success teaches you what to do. Failure teaches you what not to do.
It is your peers who are best suited to like you; it is they who are best suited to judge you
Whenever an excess is created in on direction, a deficiency is created in the opposite direction
The young appreciate the wisdom of theirs elders, simply because they haven’t had enough time and maturity to discover the same wisdom out for themselves
Life is an unending series of actions and reactions
All the good opportunities find you in the beginning, when you are not ready to take a risk; by the time you are ready to take a risk, there are no good opportunities left.
The mortal flaw of perfectionism is strictness; holding oneself and others to far too strict a standard that can never be met.
Wherever a good occurs in excess, a bad also occurs in excess.
He who does not look for signs does not see them; only he who looks for them sees them.

A storyteller writes what he cannot live
No story means as much to the reader as it does to its writer
Misery stalls time, while happiness makes it fly
Aren’t all marriages arranged? by the hand of God
Am i happy? Of course I am not happy, but I am busy and that’s good enough
Though I may be tired, I have strength enough to be happy
How can a sound move us more than a word? Music has more power over the human soul than does speech.
People like what they know, and they like what is like them, ie their own kind.
Do what you will, if you are not in the right place, you can never succeed
The bridge between the impossible and the possible is made of spirit
We should be better now than we were five years ago – Joel Osteen
Science can never provide me with faith, just as faith can never provide me with science.
Maybe its always been hard, maybe it always will be hard. . . with a bit of joy in between
If you put something in the right place, what you misplaced will turn up.
Perhaps God has a master plan that only he understands -Depeche Mode
Success is about the effort, not the outcome.
We are victim to our own perception.
One’s worth is not founded upon success or popularity, but rather on his who he is.
You can’t change the world… but you can change a small part of it
To have purpose is to live; life is purpose
History is not over.*
Normality is the most beautiful of all things.*
We are all characters in God’s play.
Courage is not eliminating fear. Courage is not letting fear eliminate hope. – Grace, child cancer patient
When we aren’t willing to take a risk, we never start in the first place. -Mallory Weggemann
Memory is the sign of life. If we did not have memories could we prove we had ever lived?
I remember, therefore I am.
The universe has a way of pairing up people who belong together.
Most people, you’ll never meet; do good unto those you are with.
The old days always are good, even if at the time, they were bad
Luck suits the person and the personality.
Luck goes after its own kind. The good adds itself onto the good. The bad adds itself upon the bad.
We seek nothing directly; everything comes to us indirectly.
Opportunity calls for guts
Where there is no courage there can be no success.
Actions engender feelings. Bold acts engender boldness. Timid acts engender timidity.
Don’t strive for perfection. Strive to accept your flaws.
There is always an excuse for not succeeding. There is never an excuse for not trying.
Happiness is in the here and now.
Are broken people stronger than before?*
Your limitations are the only ones you create*
If you are waiting and waiting for the right time to do something you’ve always wanted, you’re just procrastinating. The right time will never come. The time becomes right when you make yourself begin.
Each person is a piece in a puzzle assembled by God who finds the perfect fit for everyone in every situation to compose a wonderful picture of the whole world.
It’s not just survival of the fittest; it’s also survival of the ones who fit in, for acceptance into the group means survival, rejection means misfortune.
Only love breaks a heart – Modern Talking
Life is bestowed. Heaven is earned.
When you have nothing to play for, keep playing.
No one is judging you.
It is by seeing what we aren’t that we know who we are.
We see reality with our feelings not with our eyes.
Activity is a virtue. Passivity is a vice.
You already are a success.
There is a buildup to luck; once a special event occurs, luck is spent, and it takes time to build luck up again.
The objective to life is to fulfill your destiny.
It doesn’t matter what others may think of us; it only matters what we think of ourselves.
Be fair to others; be fair to yourself. Judge not others; judge not thy own self.
To start is always the hardest part.
Everything starts off with enthusiasm; the trick is to keep going when the enthusiasm wears off.
Work makes rest better. Rest makes work better.
How am I to get through this day? And only this day.
Cope, manage, deal.
Shiny apple skin can never compensate for rot at the core
The price for being good is not being bad; the price for being bad is not being good
One’s being is founded upon his definition of good
You believed at one time; now you stopped believing
Popularity is always a costly temptation
We always shun our equals in favor of our betters
Your life is the greatest story you will ever tell
Haven’t we all played each of life’s roles, the good, the bad, and the ugly?
The fool pays for his bliss with ignorance. The wise man pays for his wisdom with bliss.
Health is only valued by the sick.
