The belief in a thing makes it happen.
Frank Lloyd Wright
When life’s problems seem overwhelming, look around and see what other people are coping with. You may consider yourself fortunate.
You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime.
Fortune sides with him who dares.
All life is a chance. So take it!
The person who goes furthest
is the one who is willing
to do and dare.
If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.
The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.
Try doing something different every day—like talking to the person at the next table to you in a restaurant, visiting a hospital, putting your foot in a puddle, listening to what another person has to say, allowing the energy of love to flow freely, instead of putting it in a jug and standing it in a corner.
Paulo Coelho (The Zahir)
Transformations always occur during moments of crisis.
Paulo Coelho (The Winner Stands Alone)
There are monstrous changes taking place in the world, forces shaping a future whose face we do not know. Some of these forces seem evil to us, perhaps not in themselves but because their tendency is to eliminate other things we hold good.
John Steinback (East of Eden)
If I was going to fall, I would hang on to my small comforts, at least, as long as I possibly could.
Sylvia Plath (The Bell Jar)
It’s stupid to claim that one human being is special, or picked out by God, when in fact there are hundreds of millions of human beings in the world, and God knows how many millions of people long dead who have been lost to history, all of whom were probably special to someone.
Louis De Bernieres (Birds Without Wings)
Worrying does not empty tomorrow of its troubles, it empties today of its strength.
Corrie Ten Boom
