“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings,
turn routine jobs into joy,
and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

– William Arthur Ward


“Forget about trying to compete with someone else;
create your own pathway.
Create your own new vision.”

– Herbert Jeffrey Hancock


“Do not go where the path may lead;
go instead where there is no path,
and leave a trail.”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)


“And in the end, it is not
the years in your life that count,
it’s the life in your years.”

– Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)


“Give what you have.
To someone, it may be
better than you dare to think.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1807 – 1882)


“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius, and courage, to move in the opposite direction.”

– Albert Einstein (1879 – 1955)


“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”

– Michelangelo (1475 – 1564)


“Let us remember that, as much has been given us, much will be expected from us, and that true homage comes from the heart
as well as from the lips, and shows itself in deeds.”

– Theodore Roosevelt (1858 – 1919)


“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

– Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965)


“We make a living by what we get,
but we make a life by what we give.”

– Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965)


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

– John F. Kennedy (1917 – 1963)
