Quote from Eleanor Roosevelt:
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Do the things that you've always dreamed of doing NOW. Don’t postpone them. My dad loved to be in the outdoors, but he was always so busy as a school principal that he didn't give himself that pleasure very often. He was going to do all his fishing and hiking when he retired, but he never lived that long. He dies of cancer at 63. It was pretty wrenching to not only see him suffer so badly but also to realize that he had been cheated out of his dream.
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.
Love built on beauty, soon as beauty, dies.
Brother stand the pain; Escape the poison of your impulses. The sky will bow to your beauty, if you do. Learn to light the candle. Rise with the sun. Turn away from the cave of your sleeping. That way a thorn expands to a rose. A particular glows with the universal.
The world is as you perceive it to be. For me, clarity is a word for beauty. It’s what I am. And when I’m clear, I see only beauty. Nothing else is possible.
Every beauty which is seen here below by persons of perception resembles more than anything else that celestial source from which we all come…
I will see beauty and goodness in all things. From all that is unlovely shall my vision be immune.
Everything in the universe is a pitcher brimming with wisdom and beauty.
A stumbling block to the pessimist is a stepping-stone to the optimist.
The hard part of loving is that one has to learn so often to let go of those we love, so they can do things, so they can grow, so they can return to us with an even richer, deeper love.
Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively, unless you can choose a challenge instead of a competence.
