Character What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us." --Ralph Waldo Emerson

It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been missing until it arrives

If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow -- Helen Keller

"Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different, that each of us is special."

Don't set your goals by what others deem important. Only you know what is best for you."

Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling to them as you would to your life, for without them life is meaningless."

Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can."-  John Wesley

I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death --Leonardo Da Vinci

The marvelous richness of human experience
would lose something of rewarding joy
If there were no limitations to overcome.
The hilltop hour would not be half so wonderful,
If there were no dark valleys to traverse

Helen Keller
