Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
You never know what motivates you.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.
Well done is better than well said.
Who seeks shall find.
Always desire to learn something useful.
Wherever you are - be all there.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises.
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.
He is richest who is content with the least, for content is the wealth of nature.
