The wise does at once what the fool does at last.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Who seeks shall find.
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.
Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.
I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is just a touch of yearning at times but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers.
If my world were to cave in tomorrow, I would look back on all the pleasures, excitements and worthwhilenesses I have been lucky enough to have had. Not the sadness, not my miscarriages or my father leaving home, but the joy of everything else. It will have been enough.
Sadness is but a wall between two gardens.
It's sad when someone you know becomes someone you knew.
Make the most of your regrets never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.
Participate joyfully in the sorrows of the world. We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy.
The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.
A sad soul can kill quicker than a germ.
