To know oneself, one should assert oneself.
I can, therefore I am.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Only the educated are free.
Wherever you are - be all there.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And If it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first.
Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain... To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up.
Love. Fall in love and stay in love. Write only what you love, and love what you write. The key word is love. You have to get up in the morning and write something you love, something to live for.
The sun is new each day.
Thank God every morning when you get up that you have something to do that day, which must be done, whether you like it or not.
An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
