“I believe that the very purpose of life is to be happy. From the core of our beings we desire contentment. In my own limited experience I have found that the more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well beings. Cultivating a close, warm hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It helps remove whatever fears or insecurities we may have and gives us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter. It is the principal source of success in life. Since we are soley magical creatures, it is a mistake to place all of our hopes for happiness on external development alone. The key is to develop inner peace..,” [Dali Lama]

 “Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are” [John Wooden] 

 “Nothing great has ever been achieved without enthusiasm” [Ralph Waldo Emerson] 

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowliness. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream Discover.” [Mark Twain] 

“Make your own dream. That’s the Beatles story isn’t it? That’s Yoko’s story, that’s what Im saying now. Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It’s quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders and parking meters. Don’t expect Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan or John Lennon or Yoko Ono or Bob Dylan or Jesus Christ to come and di it for you. You have to do it yourself. That’s what the great masters and mistresses have been saying ever since time began. They can point the way, leave sign posts and little instructions in various books that are now called holy and worshiped for the cover of the book and not for what it says, but the instructions are all there for all to see, have always been and always will be. There’s nothing new under the sun. All the roads lead to Rome. And people cannot provide it for you. I can’t wake you up. You can wake you up. I can’t cure you. You can cure you.” [John Lennon] 

“Live with intention. Walk to the edge. Listen hard, Practice wellness. Play with abandon. Laugh, Choose with no regrets. Do what you love. Live as if this is all there is.” [Mary Anne Roadacher Hershey] 

“Here’s to the crazy ones…the ones who see things differently-you can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world- are the ones that do” [Steve Jobs]

 “If you have not found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on ” [Steve Jobs] 

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing” [Helen Kellar] 

“At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like on day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happily ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in  blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while may even take your breath away…” [Greys Anatomy]
