Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.
Your soul has no interest in judging, correcting or comparing itself to others.. Everyone is at a different level of growth.
Sometimes when you're in a dark place, you think you've been buried, but actually you've been planted.
Self-growth is a spiral: we keep returning to the lessons we need to learn over and over again until they're assimilated.
I was smiling yesterday, I am smiling today and I will smile tomorrow. Simply because life is too short to cry for anything.
You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.
The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one's appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.
Those who intend on becoming great should love neither themselves nor their own things, but only what is just, whether it happens to be done by themselves or others.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.
