If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

All of our unhappiness comes from our inability to be alone.
A person's worth in this world is estimated according to the value they put on themselves.
Remember, no human condition is ever permanent. Then you will not be overjoyed in good fortune nor too scornful in misfortune.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
Most of us are about as eager to be changed as we were to be born, and go through our changes in a similar state of shock.
People can't live with change if there's not a changeless core inside them. The key to the ability to change is a changeless sense of who you are, what you are about and what you value.
To act and act wisely when the time for action comes, to wait and wait patiently when it is time for repose, put man in accord with the rising and falling tides (of affairs), so that with nature and law at his back, and truth and beneficence as his beacon light, he may accomplish wonders. Ignorance of this law results in periods of unreasoning enthusiasm on the one hand, and depression on the other. Man thus becomes the victim of the tides when he should be their Master.
If one desires a change, one must be that change before that change can take place.
Change your life today. Don't gamble on the future, act now, without delay.
Change is inevitable-except from a vending machine.

No one can persuade another to change. Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside. We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or emotional appeal.
Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of fear is a freedom.
Change is certain. Peace is followed by disturbances; departure of evil men by their return. Such recurrences should not constitute occasions for sadness but realities for awareness, so that one may be happy in the interim.
The best way to live a dream is to wake up.
In pain is a new time born.
Cultivate only the habits that you are willing should master you.
Where parents do too much for their children, the children will not do much for themselves.
How many a man has thrown up his hands at a time when a little more effort, a little more patience would have achieved success?
A person born with an instinct for poverty.
We awaken in others the same attitude of mind we hold toward them.
The best preparation for good work tomorrow is to do good work today
The mintage of wisdom is to know that rest is rust, and that real life is love, laughter, and work.
Human service is the highest form of self-interest for the person who serves.
He who has achieved success has worked well, laughed often and loved much.
It is a fine thing to have ability, but the ability to discover ability in others is the true test.
Character is the result of two things: Mental attitude and the way we spend our time.
This will never be a civilized country until we expend more money for books than we do for chewing gum.
Live truth instead of professing it.
The teacher is one who makes two ideas grow where only one grew before.
The highest reward that God gives us for good work is the ability to do better work.
A retentive memory may be a good thing, but the ability to forget is the true token of greatness.
Luck is tenacity of purpose.
Gossip is only the lack of a worthy memory.
God will not look you over for medal, degrees or diplomas, but for scars.
There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no insurmountable barrier except our own inherent weakness of purpose.
Never explain -- your friends do not need it, and your enemies will not believe you anyway.
It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide what to do.
The main things which seem to me important on their own account, and not merely as a means to other account, and not merely as a means to other things, are knowledge, art instinctive happiness, and relations of friendship or affection.
Extreme hopes are born from extreme misery.
One of the signs of an approaching nervous breakdown is the belief that one's work is terribly important.
To fear love is to fear life, and those who fear life are already three parts dead.
Habit is a form of exercise
Intelligence is not to make no mistakes, But quickly to see how to make them good.
Life in abundance comes only through great love.
Lovers are fools, but Nature makes them so.
The greatest mistake a man can make is to be afraid of making one.
No one has ever learned fully to know themselves.
You can do very little with faith, but you can do nothing without it.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
