"How noble and good everyone could be if, at the end of each new day, they were to review their own behaviour and weigh up the rights and wrongs. They would automatically try to do better at the start of each new day and, after a while, would certainly accomplish a great deal more. Those who don't know will have to find out by experience that "a quiet conscience gives you strength"
~Anne Frank June, 1944
It's not where you start, it's where you finish!
Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.
Strive for excellence, not perfection.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing
Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are.
WHAT GOES AROUND..COMES AROUND
Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
Be careless in your dress if you will, but keep a tidy soul.
Be such a man my son, and live such a life, that if every man were such as you, and every life such as yours, this earth would be God's paradise
Cowardice asks the question; is it safe?
Expediency asks the question; is it politic?
Vanity asks the question; is it popular?
But conscience asks the question; is it right?
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular--but one must take it because it is right.
Great minds discuss ideas.
Average minds discuss events.
Small minds discuss people.
I meant what I said and I said what I meant.
I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him.
I think the next best thing to solving a problem is finding some humor in it.
I want to be somebody great for you, Lord
somebody so strong and powerful and wise
that everyone will praise you for making me.
and no one will ever doubt you again-
i want to be somebody great for you, Lord.
...why do you want me to be just me?
If a man hasn't discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense.
Nobody got anywhere in the world by simply being content.
Right is right, even if everyone is against it; and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it.
Seek the lofty by reading, hearing, and seeing great work at some moment every day.
Show me the man you honor, and I will know what kind of man you are.
The difference between the right word and the almost-right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.
When you truly care for someone, you don't look for faults, you don’t look for answers, you don't look for mistakes. Instead, you fight the mistakes, you accept the faults, and you overlook the excuses.
