Often people attempt to live their lives backwards:
they try to have more things, or more money,
in order to do more of what they want so they will be
The way it actually works is the reverse.
You must first be who you really are, then, do what
you need to do,
in order to have what you want.

~ Margaret Young ~

Whatever a person's mind dwells on
intensely and with firm resolve,
that is exactly what he becomes.

~ Shankaracharya ~

We do not see things as they are.
We see them as we are.

~ The Talmud ~

Don't believe what your eyes are telling you.
All they show is limitation.
Look with your understanding,
find out what you already know,
and you'll see the way to fly.

~ Richard Bach
(from 'Johnathan Livingstone Seagull') ~

It's not them, it's you.
It's not there, it's here.
It's not then, it's now.

~ Author Unknown ~

Though no-one can go back
and make a brand new start,
anyone can start from now
and make a brand new end.

~ Author Unknown ~

What is, is.
What isn't, isn't.
You become so obsessed with what isn't
that you miss what is.

~ Author Unknown ~

When one door closes, another opens;
but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the
closed door
that we do not see the one which has opened for us.

~ Alexander Graham Bell ~

When it is dark enough,
you can see the stars.

~ Charles A Beard, American Historian (1874-1949) ~

What lies behind us and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.

~ Oliver Wendell Holmes ~

is either a daring adventure or nothing.
~ Helen Keller ~
