Wherever you are - be all there.
Be gentle to all and stern with yourself.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Know or listen to those who know.
If you can dream it, you can do it.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
What you do today can improve all your tomorrows.
It's always too early to quit.
Only the educated are free.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.
We never taste a perfect joy our happiest successes are mixed with sadness.
An ounce of cheerfulness is worth a pound of sadness to serve God with.
I was raised in an atmosphere of 'everything's fine.' But as I got older, I was like, 'Well no, everything's not fine. There is stuff that's sad.' I am a really sensitive person. I think I am too sensitive sometimes.
I can see the humorous side of things and enjoy the fun when it comes but look where I will, there seems to me always more sadness than joy in life.
It's a sad man my friend who's livin' in his own skin and can't stand the company.
It is one of the most saddening things in life that, try as we may, we can never be certain of making people happy, whereas we can almost always be certain of making them unhappy.
The rose and the thorn, and sorrow and gladness are linked together.
I really believe that all of us have a lot of darkness in our souls. Anger, rage, fear, sadness. I don't think that's only reserved for people who have horrible upbringings. I think it really exists and is part of the human condition. I think in the course of your life you figure out ways to deal with that.
Do not make best friends with a melancholy sad soul. They always are heavily loaded, and you must bear half.
