"Riches can all be lost, but that happiness in your own heart can only be veiled, and it will still bring you happiness again, as long as you live. As long as you can look fearlessly up into the heavens, as long as you know that you are pure within, and that you will still find happiness."
Anne Frank --- Submitted by LeAnne V. --- Mississippi
This quote lifts me up and to say that Anne Frank wrote it is even more inspirational because of what she was going through at the time.

"It is not for everyone to be successful within our current social world. It is for everyone to succeed in your own journey and define your own level of success. In succeeding, there will be little success learned without failure. It is the concept that in error we learn to succeed, for learned lessons put you one step closer to your completed journey. Only when you stop learning how to fail, will you stop your journey to success. Be patient, be prayerful and in good spirits in all times. Embrace the journey and live your life so you impact it everyday. Be of good character so your journey, once finished, will be successful to you."

"My dreams were instilled within me by you, so that I might go after them with a passion for you."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Josh F. --- North Carolina
God give us dreams to accomplish for him. Never give up on your dreams.
November 14, 2005
So many dreams yet to be realized,
tasks yet to be accomplished,
destinations yet to be reached,
targets yet be met,
words yet to be spoken,
promises yet to be kept...

Dear Lord, give me just one more day
to set everything right before this special
journey of mine called life comes to an end.

Failures are stepping stones for success and with each failure I believe I am getting closer to success. - Ramanujam

"To love another and to draw close to them is like standing near a fire. Yes, there is a chance that you will get burnt, but unless you come close, you will never feel the warmth."
Written in 2002 by Dynika Gasper --- Australia
A lot of my friends are too scared to draw close to people because they are so scared that they will get hurt. But I always use this example of the fire saying that yes there are risks, but there are beautiful rewards as well. Take that chance!

"We cannot control life's difficult moments but we can choose to make life less difficult. We cannot control the negative atmosphere of the world, but we can control the atmosphere of our minds. Too often we try to choose and control things we cannot. Too seldom we choose to control what we can -- our attitude."

"Do what you can, being who you are. Shine like a glowworm, if you cannot be a star."
Mr. C. Main --- Submitted by Ellie Z. --- England, United Kingdom
This is a quote from a teacher at my old school. It said a lot to me when I first heard it, and now, when I'm going through a time where I feel my successes are not enough in comparison to others', it's comforting to know that I don't have to be the best, as long as I do my best.

"Life is like trying to get ahead on a busy freeway - focus on the road ahead rather than on the rear view mirror. That way you will see the opportunities ahead, without being stuck in the traffic of your own past experiences."

"The biggest fear in life is that we are going to die one day!! Does this mean we stop living? We know our life decreases with every breath, but that doesn't stop us from living, doing good things, knowing each other, playing around, doing our part in this world. But then why does a smaller fear, which is nothing compared to leaving this lovely world, make us feel sick? Why does a fear of losing make us feel hurt? Why does a fear of failing make us feel disheartened? Instead we should move ahead to not be touched by these fears, which are hindrances to our development. Since we never stop living, because of fear of death, then no other thing is as big as this fear!! So let's resolve today, we are going to live without any fear for our and other's happiness!!"

"If you do not put yourself into the path of the gods, then how can you expect the gods to notice you?"
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Michelle Jones --- United Kingdom
This is not the actual quote; it is how I remember it roughly. I try to live my life by this and by a lyric, ' Life's too short to be afraid, step inside the sun.' I have this painted on my porch wall. Over the last year, whilst dealing with Breast Cancer, all my fears have fallen away...well except the one about flying. I have come to see that we all live in fear, fear of what will happen, of what the neighbors will say, of the car breaking down, the bank repossessing, fear for our children, our friends, our loved ones. I now try to live without fear. I don't manage it all the time, but I do for oh, about 80% of the time, I no longer fear opening the mail, answering the phone, talking to my bank - talking to anyone in fact! I have always been a confident person, but now, I am both confident and assertive. I am living my life in the light, with the help of the Angels.
