Respect other people’s feelings. It might mean nothing to you, but it could mean everything to them.
~Roy T. Bennett
If you’re trying to show off for people at the top, forget it. They will look down on you anyhow. And if you’re trying to show off for people at the bottom, forget it. They will only envy you. Status will get you nowhere. Only an open heart will allow you to float equally between everyone.
The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.
Be the one who nurtures and builds. Be the one who has an understanding and forgiving heart. Be the one who looks for the best in people. Leave people better than you found them.
~Marvin J. Ashton
To be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, in the right way – that is not easy.
You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.
Who can remember pain once it’s over? All that remains of it is a shadow, not in the mind even, in the flesh. Pain marks you, but too deep to see.
