“Custom is our nature.” Blaise Pascal

“Bring new light to what life might be.”  Hugh MacLeod

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela

“At all times, under all circumstances, we have the power to transform the quality of our lives” Werner Erhard

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” Marcel Proust

“There are certain things you can only know by creating them for yourself.” Werner Erhard

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives.”  Anthony Robbins 

“A promise has real power. A promise made from the stand
that who you are is your word, engages you as participant. You
cease to be a spectator, and your words become actions that
actually impact the world. With a promise you create a condition
that supports your commitment rather than your moods. When
motivational dialog comes up about your preference versus your
commitments, and you disregard the dialog in favor of doing
what you said you would do solely because you said so, you
distinguish yourself from your psychology. In that moment you
are your word as an action, rather than only as an idea you have.
In that moment the promise becomes who you are rather than
something you said; and your relationship to the world shifts.
You find yourself producing results that seem discontinuous and
unpredictable from the point of view of the spectator. The
experience is one of joy, fearlessness, irrepressible energy and
satisfaction. Transformation exists not only when we speak about it but when we empower others to speak it.”
Werner Erhard

“You can choose to do anything, and the only thing you have  to do is die” Laurence Platt

“I believe that anybody can think himself into his goal if he mixes thought with definiteness of purpose, persistence, and a burning desire for its translation into reality. So, action! Action! Never wasting energy on worries and negative thoughts.“ Bruce Lee

” We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him ….. We need not wait to see what others do.” M.K. Gandhi

“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.” Bruce Lee

“Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.” Bruce Lee

We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects” Herman Melville

Let’s go out into the world and take this caring, this love, this respect we’ve shown each other …. takes this out into the world because we are the environment. How we treat each other is really how we are going to treat the environment.” John Francis

“Living life without making a difference is to be amongst the living dead.” Ron Travisano

“I have another kind of hunger, a hunger to contribute.” Jeff Bridges

“Life can be pulled by goals just as surely as it can be pushed by drives.”  Viktor Frankl

“But man is not made for defeat.  A man can be destroyed but not defeated.”  Hemingway

Defeat is … a state of mind, no one is ever defeated until defeat has been accepted as a reality.  To me, defeat in anything is merely temporary, and its punishment is but an urge for me to greater effort to achieve my goal.  Defeat simply tells me that something is wrong in my doing; it is a path leading to success and truth.” Bruce Lee

You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want. Zig Ziglar.

“What we will do for love will always be far more powerful than what we will do for money. What we can do together will always be far greater than what we can do alone.”  Pavithra Mehta

“That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is. Most people love you for who you pretend to be. To keep their love, you keep pretending – performing. You get to love your pretense. It’s true, we’re locked in an image, an act – and the sad thing is, people get so used to their image, they grow attached to their masks. They love their chains. They forget all about who they really are. And if you try to remind them, they hate you for it, they feel like you’re trying to steal their most precious possession.”
― Jim Morrison

“Adults are starved for a kind word.“  Scott Adams

“Kindness is generative.” Pavithra Mehta

“Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change.” Bob Kerry

“Love is listening, observing, validating and empathizing.” Catherine Cadden

“Love is granting another the space to be the way they are and the way they are not.”  Werner Erhard

“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar, it sees that the edifice that produces beggars needs restructuring.” Martin Luther King Jr

“All humans want to be narrators, but many have difficulties finding listeners.” Jalees Rehman

“The only way we really create change is to enter any situation with the humility to listen and to recognize the world as it is, and then the audacity to dream what it could be, to have the patience to start and let the work teach you, to be willing to lead when you need to lead, and to listen. To have a sense of generosity and empathy ….. If there’s one value that is immutable, it’s integrity or respect, for others and for yourself. The best change that comes to the world is when all parties are seeing each other as equal, and all parties have the opportunity to be transformed.” Jacqueline Novogratz

“Let the world know why you are here, and do it with passion.” Dr Wayne Dyer
