There are times when it is hard to believe in the future, when we are temporarily just not brave enough. When this happens, concentrate on the present. Cultivate le petit bonheur (the little happiness) until courage returns. Look forward to the beauty of the next moment, the next hour, the promise of a good meal, sleep, a book, a movie, the likelihood that tonight the stars will shine and tomorrow the sun will shine. Sink roots into the present until the strength grows to think about tomorrow.
Do not wish to be anything but what you are,
and try to be that perfectly.
St. Francis de Sales,
Socrates: 'Know thyself.
'Emerson: 'Trust thyself.'
In my mind, those four words come close to a complete philosophy on how to live. Add a fifth word: 'Love' and I think we might just be there
Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.Dale Carnegie, 1888-1955
Don't wait for a smile to be nice.
Don't wait to be loved to love.
Don't wait to be lonely, to recognize the value of a friend.
Don't wait for the best job, to begin to work.
Don't wait to have a lot, to share a bit.
Don't wait for the fall, to remember the advice.
Don't wait for pain, to believe in prayer.
Don't wait to have time, to be able to serve.
Don't wait for anybody else pain, to ask for apologies
.. neither separation to make it up.
Don't wait, because you don't know how long it will take.
Happiness doesn't depend on what we have, but it does depend on how we feel toward what we have. We can be happy with little and miserable with much.
William Dempster Hoard, 1836-1918
Any time you have an opportunity to make a difference in this world and you don't, then you are wasting your time on Earth.
