" Try to make positive steps on that unstable bridge of life that you've already broken or burnt, and if you can't make it across that old bridge, then use the knowledge you have acquired today to build a new stronger and well-developed one, so sturdy that you can still walk back across and reflect on the bridge that you once failed to cross."

" If you want friends, be a friend first. If you want love and kindness at home, give love and be kind first at home. You see, we reap what we sow; so we have to initiate what we seek. We should be willing to give what we wish to receive. The easiest place to start is with our self, something we have total control of."

" The best way to put the Law of Giving into operation - to start the whole process of circulation - is to make a decision that any time you come into contact with anyone, you will give them something. It doesn't have to be of material things; it could be a flower, a compliment or a thoughtful blessing, wishing them happiness, joy and laughter. Make a decision to give wherever you go, to whomever you see. If you want joy, give joy to others, if you want love, learn to give love; if you want attention and appreciation, learn to give love and appreciation. The easiest way to get what you want is to help others get what they want. The more you give, the more you will receive, because you will keep the abundance of the universe circulating in your life."

" Give thanks for sorrow that teaches you pity; for pain that teaches you courage -- and give exceeding thanks for the mystery which remains a mystery still -- the veil that hides you from the infinite, which makes it possible for you to believe in what you cannot see."
Robert Nathan

" Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
Melodie Beattie
