Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.

The person interested in success has to learn to view failure as a healthy, inevitable part of the process of getting to the top.
Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.
Who we are never changes. Who we think we are does.
The main dangers in this life are the people who want to change everything or nothing.
Everybody wants to do something to help, but nobody wants to be the first.
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the end, it is between you and HIM not you and them.
Difficulties mastered are opportunities won.
The price of greatness is responsibility.
Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles with it.
All men make mistakes, but only wise men learn from their mistakes.
An error is the more dangerous in proportion to the degree of truth which it contains.
Since nothing we intend is ever faultless, and nothing we attempt ever without error, and nothing we achieve without some measure of finitude and fallibility we call humanness, we are saved by forgiveness.
An error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it.
I have made mistakes, but I never made the mistake of claiming that I never made one.
Accept everything about yourself -- I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end -- no apologies, no regrets.
We can not do great things. We can only do little things with great love.
I determined never to stop until I had come to the end and achieved my purpose.
No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
It is not work that kills men; it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more upon a man than he can bear. Worry is the rust upon the blade. It is not the revolution which destroys the machinery but the friction. Fear secretes acids; but love and trust are sweet juices
Do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Let the day's own trouble be sufficient for the day.
Worry not about the possible troubles of the future; for if they come, you are but anticipating and adding to their weight; and if they do not come, your worry is useless; and in either case it is weak and in vain, and a distrust of God's providence.
As a rule, men worry more about what they can't see than about what they can.
Worry not that no one knows of you; seek to be worth knowing.
Little minds have little worries, big minds have no time for worries.
The reason why worry kills more people than work is that more people worry than work.
Concern should drive us into action and not into a depression. No man is free who cannot control himself.
To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.
The greater the difficulty the more glory in surmounting it. Skillful pilots gain their reputation from storms and tempests.
Death comes to all But great achievements build a monument which shall endure until the sun grows cold.
The only way around is through.
Once while St. Francis of Assisi was hoeing his garden, he was asked, What would you do it you were suddenly to learn that you were to die at sunset today? He replied, I would finish hoeing my garden.
It is almost impossible to smile on the outside without feeling better on the inside.
