“Let me be a free man. Free to travel. Free to stop. Free to work.  Free to choose my own teachers. Free to follow the religion of my fathers. Free to think and talk and act for myself.”
Chief Joseph

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain
American Author
Books  Quotes 



“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We're afraid.”
“Come to the edge.”
“We can't. We will fall!”
“Come to the edge.”
 And they came.
 And he pushed them.

 And they flew.

  Guillaume Apollinaire,   1880-1918
French Poet, Philosopher



Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all.  Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle.

The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.

Ayn Rand
Russian-born American Author

And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.  

Anais Nin
American Author



When things go wrong as they sometimes will;
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill;
When the funds are low, and the debts are high
And you want to smile, but have to sigh;
When care is pressing you down a bit-
Rest if you must, but do not quit.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you can never tell how close you are
It may be near when it seems so far;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit-
It's when things go wrong that you must not quit.

"Don't Quit,"  Author Unknown



Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure...than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.    

Theodore Roosevelt
26th President Of The United States

Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. 

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
American Civil Rights Leader
Books  Quotes 



I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there' and it will move.    

The Bible
Matthew 17:20 



It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man
who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while
so that his place shall never be
with those timid souls
who know neither victory or defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
26th President Of The United States
Books  Quotes

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.

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

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“The journey of a thousand miles must begin 
with a single step.” 

Lao Tzu
Chinese Philosopher
Books  Quotes



"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 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's not just in some of us; its 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."

Marianne Williamson
From her book Return To Love
