Not until we are completely lost or turned around…
Do we begin to find ourselves.

There is no better way of thanking God for your sight than by giving a helping hand to someone in the dark.

Helen Keller


 

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Henri J.M. Nouwen


The best way out is always through.

It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important.
You have to do the right thing.
It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that they’ll be any fruit.
But that doesn’t mean that you stop doing the right thing.
You may never know what results come from your action.
But if you do nothing there will be no result.

Mahatma Ghandi

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events.
It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Robert D. Kennedy


 

We know what we are, but not what we may be.

In this sad world of ours sorrow comes to all and it often comes with bitter agony. Perfect relief is not possible except with time.

But this is not true.
You are sure to be happy again.
Knowing this, truly believing it will make you less miserable now.
I have had enough experience to make this statement.

Abraham Lincoln


 

You can tell the greatness if a man by what makes him angry.

Abraham Lincoln


 

No price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Friedrich Nietzsche
