" Life is too small for big grudges."
Written in 2010 by NK Grover --- Canada

" Life just like a puzzle, every journey has it on pattern. Every time we stop and collect the lost pieces, it shows us the part of life and what we need the most in our life."
Written in 2010 by Rosy Daria --- Malaysia

" The Greatest treasure we have is the smile; no one knows what is hidden in it."
Written in 2011 by Radley R. --- New York
This is just a quote I came up with one day when talking to a close friend about how life is, and how sometimes people can brighten another person's day with a smile even if they personally isn't having the best day.

" The beauties of life are in the little things we fail to appreciate."
Peace Cyril --- Submitted by Peace Obott --- Nigeria
Life is all about simplicities and these are what makes life colorful and livable. So in whatever you do, never ignore a little help, a kind gesture, an innocent smile and a shoulder to cry on. They maybe small but they sure mean a lot.

" A kindly tongue is the lodestone of the hearts of men. It is the bread of the spirit, it clotheth the words with meaning, it is the fountain of the light of wisdom and understanding."
Baha'u'llah --- Submitted by D.P. --- Michigan
I chose this because it is something I need to work on more and maybe others do too. We need to be kind in our speech because when we are, it attracts others' hearts. They will hear us because kindness dresses our words with meaning. A kind tongue is full of wisdom and understanding. We need to think about what we are going to say before we say it and choose the right words and tone of voice so as not to hurt or anger our receiver.

" The best gift one can be given to one's self, in a long time, is the gift to turn away. The road ahead is brighter and comes with healing with each step, as well as the gift to forgive at each stop sign. If what's behind us is not the same as for what's in front of us, then the road ahead was truly worth it."

" For a man to excel in life, he just has to go extra miles when others stopped."

" They say: 'Good things come to those who wait.' I believe good things come to those who persist patiently."
Written in 2010 by Mandla L. Nkosi --- South Africa
I believe waiting is not an option but persisting with patience is rather better.

" No one has ever been arrested for aiming high in life."
Written in 2008 by Gugu Bigkid Yengw --- South Africa
People like settling for less in life when dreams seem impossible. It won't kill you to take a leap of faith, aiming even higher, regardless... the higher you aim, the higher the effort you put. As long as you are still alive, so is your mind that helps you aim.

" Do not try to live 'up to a standard' rather 'be the standard'. Living up to a standard is living up to the expectation of others. But to be the standard is being the very best of who you are."
Written in 2011 by Philemon C. Agwu --- Nigeria
It has to do with all works of life.

" Like a summer bloom, hope returns. Expect it!"
Written in 2011 by Molly McMillan Hawkins --- Mississippi
I paint folk art. I wanted to write something to include in a painting of a sunflower. I've always been encouraged by Sarah Ban Breathnach's quote, "Expect to have hope rekindled. Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways. The dry seasons in life do not last. Spring rains will come again." I wanted to express the same feeling as her quote, but I needed something shorter, more concise. I also needed to include the word summer instead of spring since I was painting a sunflower. Another thought was that we've endured such a frigid winter, I liked the thought of hope for the summer.

" During the night when you're tossing & turning, because your brain is racing with thoughts, grab a pen & pad and start writing. You'll be surprised at what you come up with."
Written in 2011 by Cleo Johnson --- Illinois
I thought this would be a great idea for those that don't sleep well at night; instead of laying back & just thinking, now, you can write what you're thinking.

" It is the nature of thought to find its way into action."

" I really don't think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don't mind the failure but I can't imagine that I'd forgive myself if I didn't try."
Nikki Giovanni --- Submitted by Lauren Covington --- New Jersey

" The great teachings unanimously emphasize that all the peace, wisdom, and joy in the universe are within us; we don't have to gain, develop, or attain them. We're like a child standing in a beautiful park with his eyes shut tight. We don't need to imagine tress, flowers, deer, birds, and sky; we merely need to open our eyes and realize what is already here, who we really are."
Bo Lozoff --- Submitted by George Wachirah --- Kenya

" In the face of people's expectations, I ask myself, what do I also want for my life?"

" I am not sure where a great journey ends but I have seen almost everyone reaching somewhere, all the time, and can imagine their excitement and the sense of fulfillment. So it's all about visualizing and starting and things start falling into place."
Written in 2010 by Shamsud Ahmed --- India

" Don't waste too much time wondering why you made the mistakes you made. Just trust that it was all for a good reason, which will surface in the future. Meanwhile, move on."
Written in 2010 by Joan Marques --- California

" There are no scientific or logical ways to plan or prepare for the uncertainties of life. We can only tread forward, have faith, hope and pray for the wisdom we need in which to handle them gracefully."
Written in 2010 by Michael T. Wilder --- Florida


February 2, 2011
" Life is worth living moment by moment, being at peace and spreading peace, happiness and goodwill to everyone we meet as nobody knows when that last breathe will be taken since we have no control over it and no signal will be sent in advance."
Written in 2011 by Prem Guragain --- California


February 2, 2011
" We don't always know whose lives we have touched, uplifted and inspired by a simple act called kindness, because actions many times have unforeseen ramifications. What's important to remember is that you treat EVERYONE with kindness, even those who are rude to you ~ not because they deserve it, but because you deserve it!"
Dorothy Murfin --- Submitted by Melissa Phillips --- Georgia
Kindness is something I need to practice everyday and like the quote said, sometimes it needs to be with those whom I dislike!

" Don't lament in your heart when an opportunity was missed. Weeping eyes can't recognize the next great opportunity in your life."
