" Life and love are like the changing of the leaves during the midst of change of season. We experience the change of colors within the fallen leaves, thinking its gone and fallen without solid ground. But as the season comes the next year around, new beauty within emotion which the tree blooms, brings back the bold and blissful colors of life and heart that entwine within the branches of love and spirit."

" All the wealth in the world cannot help one Indian village, if the people are not taught to help themselves. Our work should be mainly education, both moral and intellectual. Educate the people, so that they may learn to be self-sufficient, frugal. If the poor cannot come for education, education should reach the poor."

Heart and willpower take me to the next level #Motivational #Quote

" What I have cannot be measured, nor can it be timed. You cannot put a number on it. Willpower and heart are what take me to the next level."

Quitting is the easy way out. Actually, for me quitting is hard. I have way too much heart and willpower not to succeed.

" Life is to short to be negative and judgmental of others. We all have our faults and flaws, things said, things done that we are not proud of. When you think about it, it basically comes right down to learning as you live life and go through experiences! You learn who wants to share your world of inner friends and family and those trials and tribulations you have to be a better person. You learn who is worth being in your life and who truly wants to be and at what capacity. You learn who wants to be a part of your positive energy and the love and understanding you can pay forward to them. Life is tough! Love one another, breathe and live like its your last day everyday!"
Written in 2013 by Anthony Merrill --- New Jersey
I am blessed everyday for the people in my life. Family, friends, and even those who have not entered it yet. Love to all!

" CHANGE: Don't just talk about it, go out there and do it. Don't just meditate about it, go out there and create it. Don't just pray about it go out there and take action; participate in the answering of your own prayer. If you want change, get out there and live it."

" Life will bring you to deep dark waters, self-pity; hatred and anger will drown you in the water of emotions but with acceptance, forgiveness, and love you can rise up to surface. With focus, determination, and endurance you can swim back to the shore where the new triumphed and undefeated "you" is waiting to greet you."

" Maybe you won't believe it, but most of the richest people on earth have no money. Most of them have a nice family. Have you seen the face of a barefoot kid kicking a football with his friends? Or a poor kid walking 10 km to get to school and still smiling as if saying, "life is so beautiful"? I've seen that, I've lived that; that makes me what I'm today. Money is not everything in life. Count your blessings because you can't order a pair of eyes in a pharmacy nor buy a brother on eBay. Maybe you can buy a beautiful girl body but not her love. When you stop chasing the money and realize what you have around you, then you will deserve money."

" To forgive is powerful. To be forgiven is priceless. To embody the two is a blessing."
Written in 2013 by Traci D. Greene
I was able to experience first hand the power of REALLY forgiving someone and the reaction this person had when forgiven. In all our lifetime we either are the forgiven or the forgiver and to be able to do both, experience both, is truly an amazing thing.
