A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart again.. Being kind is more important than being right. Don't judge people by their relatives. Everyone wants to live on top of the mountain, but all the happiness, and growth occurs while you're climbing it. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. In life there is no going back. In life, as in football, you won’t go far unless you know where the goalposts are. It's those small daily happenings that make life so spectacular. Life is a series of problems and solutionsbut if we desire to blossom like a rose in the garden,Problem can either make us or break us. Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes. Life is very similar to boxing ring, defeat is not final when you fall down, it's final when you refuse to get up! Live in such a way that you make others think why they are not like you. Make a difference and feel the miracle of its consequence. Never laugh at anyone's dreams. People who don't have dreams don't have much. Never think why you are not like others. One can always pray for someone when one does n't have the strength to help him in some other way. One person saying to me, 'You've made my day!' makes my day. One should keep his words both soft and tender, because tomorrow he may have to eat them. Opportunities are never lost; someone will take the ones you miss. Progress has little to do with speed, but much to do with direction. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice. Sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand. That everyone you meet deserves to be greeted with a smile. That having a child fall asleep in your arms is one of the most peaceful feelings in the world. The best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person. The consequences of today are determined by the actions of the past. The easiest way for me to grow as a person is to surround myself with people smarter than I am. The hammer that breaks glass can shape steel. It is up to us to be glass or steel. We need to have the will power of steel and vision of glass. The person who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones. There's great beauty in simplicity. It's not plainness, however it is plain in the sense that words and actions are enacted with great royalty, full awareness and with so much significance. Simplicity takes us away from artificiality, it simply accepts and in that acceptance shows us grace and humility in every circumstance. Thinking twice before taking a step is wise,but failing to take a step due to fear is foolish. To change your future, alter your decisions today. Too many people overvalue what they are not and undervalue what they are. Under everyone's hard shell is someone who wants to be appreciated and loved. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. We have to learn the art of adjusting with the thorns. We should be glad God doesn't give us everything we ask for. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?' When you harbor bitterness, happiness will dock elsewhere. When you plan to get even with someone, you are only letting that person continue to hurt you. When your newly born grandchild holds your little finger in his little fist, that you're hooked for life. You can't return along the track to see out what has past. You can't undo your past mistakes; even wishing to do so is . You should never say no to a gift from a child.
