It is wise to direct your anger towards problems -- not people; to focus your energies on answers -- not excuses.
The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow. The nature of life is to change. The challenge of life is to overcome. The essence of life is to care. The opportunity of like is to serve. The secret of life is to dare. The spice of life is to befriend. The beauty of life is to give.
Do more than belong: participate. Do more than care: help. Do more than believe: practice. Do more than be fair: be kind. Do more than forgive: forget. Do more than dream: work.
Optimists enrich the present, enhance the future,challenge the improbable and attain the impossible

Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.
Change, like sunshine, can be a friend or a foe, a blessing or a curse, a dawn or a dusk.
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it. If you can dream it, you can become it.
It is wise to direct your anger towards problems - not people; to focus your energies on answers - not excuses.
