A bend in the road is not the end of the road..


The past is a reference, not a residence.


You need smaller pieces for the bigger picture.


We learn from experience that we never learn anything from experience.


Don't let the answers you want to hear get in the way of the answers you need to hear.


If your life is black and white, the least you can do is dream in color.

We met for a reason, either you're a blessing or a lesson.


Life becomes easier when you learn to accept the apology you never got.


Negative people need drama like it's oxygen. Stay positive and take their breath away.


If you ever feel like giving up remember that dreams don't come with an expiry date.


You can waste your life drawing lines, or you can live your life crossing them.


Relationships are like shoes. People start with shoes that look good, but end up with those in which they feel comfortable.


I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.


Explain your anger instead of expressing it. You'll find answers instead of arguments.


It's not the one who has little, but the one that desires more, that is poor.


Climb the mountain so you can see the world; not so the world can see you.


There are so MANY things we wish we had done yesterday, yet there are so FEW things we feel like doing today, and yet, there are so MANY things we think we'll get done tomorrow.


When you tell the truth it becomes a part of your past. When you tell a lie it becomes a part of your future.


We are masters of the unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out.


If we tell people what to do, we get workers. If we trust them to do their jobs, we get leaders.


Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish caught, the last river poisoned, only then will we realize that one cannot eat money.


Play to your strengths, not to others' weaknesses.


I am too busy working on my own grass to notice if yours is greener.


Life is short, and it is up to you to make it sweet.


Always remember that you had a purpose before anyone had an opinion.


Be stronger than your excuses.


Spoon feeding in the long run teaches us nothing but the shape of the spoon.


We can teach from experience, but we cannot teach experience.


The creative adult is the child who survived.


Questions you cannot answer are way better than the answers you cannot question.


If you don't like it, you can always change it. You're not a tree.


If you persevere, you'll find that the limits of your perseverance are infinitely more than the perseverance of your limits.


Perfection is not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away.


There are three kinds of people in the world: the wills, the won'ts, and the can'ts. The first accomplish everything; the second oppose everything; the third fail in everything.


You can see either the obstacle or the goal. CHOOSE!


If they talk behind your back, understand that you are in front.


Just because the word fail comes before fall in the dictionary doesn't mean that every fall is a failure.


A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song.


Life is too short to be at war with yourself.


Broken crayons can still color.


Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.


The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be kindled.


Be a voice, not an echo.


None of us is as smart as all of us.


Work is love made visible.


We are all like snowflakes — all different in our own beautiful way, and all beautiful in our own different way.


Holding a grudge doesn't make you strong. If anything, it only makes you bitter.


Forgive or forget. Preferably both.


May you find the courage to start, the patience to continue, and the strength to finish.


A friend: someone who'll walk silently by you through the valley and sing loudly with you at the mountain top.


Look at how far you've come, not how far it's still to go.


You move a mountain by carrying away small stones.


I tried to throw in the towel. Life threw it back in my face as if to say - "Wipe it off. You're almost there!"


The robbed that smiles steals something from the thief.


Speak in anger and you will give a speech that you will forever regret.


Never regret anything that made you smile.


Either you're nervous, our you're excited. CHOOSE!


Failure is not a camping ground. It is a stepping stone.


Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you'd better be running.


It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that things are difficult.


Fear is what you FEEL. Courage is what you DO.


The purpose of life is a life of purpose.


I will come again and conquer you because as a mountain you can’t grow, but as a human, I can. (Edmund Hillary)


Rock bottom will teach you lessons that mountain tops never will.


Think before you speak. Read before you think.


NEVER let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of worries.


Life may be difficult, but death is unknown territory.
