Goals are dreams with deadlines.
~Diana Scharf Hunt
The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it.
The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man's foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.
I don't care how much power, brilliance or energy you have, if you don't harness it and focus it on a specific target, and hold it there you're never going to accomplish as much as your ability warrants.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.
~Anthony J. D'Angelo
Oh, my friend, it's not what they take away from you that counts. It's what you do with what you have left.
I've decided that the stuff falling through the cracks is confetti and I'm having a party!
~Betsy Cañas Garmon
As each day comes to us refreshed and anew, so does my gratitude renew itself daily. The breaking of the sun over the horizon is my grateful heart dawning upon a blessed world.
You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and grace before I open a book, and grace before sketching, painting, swimming, fencing, boxing, walking, playing, dancing and grace before I dip the pen in the ink.
The unthankful heart... discovers no mercies; but let the thankful heart sweep through the day and, as the magnet finds the iron, so it will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings!
~Henry Ward Beecher
Grace isn't a little prayer you chant before receiving a meal. It's a way to live.
~Attributed to Jacqueline Winspear
