Inspirational Quotes

The secret of achievement is to hold a picture of a successful outcome in your mind.
Henry David Thoreau

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is the meaning of success.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

When you get in a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.
Harriet Beecher Stowe

The best portion of a good man's life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and love.
William Wordsworth

It's all in the mind
Fear, anxiety and doubt
Breathe in then breathe out.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves: Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the Glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And, as we let our own Light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
A Course in Miracles

Inspirational Quotes

Think of yourself as on the threshold of unparalleled success. A whole, clear, glorious life lies before you. Achieve! Achieve!
Andrew Carnegie

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and of a foundation for inner security.
Albert Einstein

Inspirational Quotes

Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself to others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Life is not a destination but a journey. Seize the day.

Nothing easy in this world is ever worth achieving

Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

For each day you worry about the past or the future you are losing a day of your life.

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.

The greatest happiness comes from making others happy.

Love and you shall be loved.
