Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning Good morning at total strangers.
A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
I believe that every person is born with talent.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Love is a friendship set to music.
In memory everything seems to happen to music.
Music washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.
My heroes are and were my parents. I can't see having anyone else as my heroes.
Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
Every single one of us can do things that no one else can do -- can love things that no one else can love. We are like violins. We can be used for doorstops, or we can make music. You know what to do.
Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.
The more you love what you are doing, the more successful it will be for you.
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
They that envy others are their inferiors.
Change is the end result of all true learning. Change involves three things: First, a dissatisfaction with self -- a felt void or need; second, a decision to change to fill the void or need; and third, a conscious dedication to the process of growth and change -- the willful act of making the change, doing something.
Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator and change has enemies.
Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: I'm with you kid. Let's go.
I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life's a bitch. You've got to go out and kick ass.
We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.
Happiness consists of three things; Someone to love, work to do, and a clear conscience.
Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired and success achieved.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
He who has health, has hope. And he who has hope, has everything.
Of all the forces that make for a better world, none is so indispensable, none so powerful, as hope. Without hope men are only half alive. With hope they dream and think and work.
Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within him the gift of miracles.
Friendships that have stood the test of time and chance are surely best, Brows may wrinkle, hair grow gray, Friendship never knows decay.
Friendship multiplies the good of life and divides the evil.
The friendship that can cease has never been real.
True friendship ought never to conceal what it thinks.
To love what you do and feel that it matters -- how could anything be more fun?
It's kind of fun to do the impossible.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
The quality of your life is dependent upon the quality of the life of your cells. If the bloodstream is filled with waste products, the resulting environment does not promote a strong, vibrant, healthy cell life-nor a biochemistry capable of creating a balanced emotional life for an individual.
Four things come not back. The spoken word, the sped arrow, the past life, and the neglected opportunity.
Marriage is like a besieged castle; those who are on the outside wish to get in; and those who are on the inside wish to get out.
Nature has no mercy at all. Nature says, I'm going to snow. If you have on a bikini and no snowshoes, that's tough. I am going to snow anyway.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
