Things to perk up the day

Never come into the theatre with mud on your feet. Leave your dust and dirt outside. Check your little worries, squabbles, petty, difficulties with your outside clothing--all the things that ruin your life and draw your attention away from your art--at the door.

The world makes way for those who know where they are going

Forget the past, for it is gone from your domain!
Forget the future, for it is beyond your reach! Control the present!
Live supremely well now!
It will whitewash the dark past, and compel the future to be bright!
This is the way of the wise.

We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere.

Change is a function of nature this is an integral necessary in the circles and cycles of life itself.

If you want a place in the sun, you've got to put up with a few blisters.

The only real risk is the risk of thinking too small.

Success is not so much achievement as achieving. Refuse to join the cautious crowd that plays not to lose; play to win.

What really matters is what you do with what you have .

Find out what you like doing best and get someone to pay for doing it.

There is only one success - to be able to spend your life in your own way.

This is my chance to shine. Don't block the light.

Losers quit when they're tired. Winners quit when they've won. I never quit.

Savor the beauty of life and believe that each moment in time is a new beginning.

Life is the sharing of songs and of silences, and the holding of memories only the heart can see.

Life's gifts are sweet and free for the taking.

Beyond the clouds, behind the rain, there are a thousand rainbows. One is finding its way to you.

Beautiful people cause beautiful things to happen.

Each of us is a part of all that surrounds us, and every joy we feel is a celebration of life.

Be a searcher. Those who seek are the finders of treasures

Sometimes it's the simplest joys that the heart its sweetest pleasures.

And what is as important as knowledge? asked the mind. Caring and seeing with the heart, answered the soul.

Miracles come in all shapes and sizes and happen to those who believe in them.

We are never alone. The heart always finds its way home.

Nelson Mandela 1994 Inaugural Speech 
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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's 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 own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
