My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style. 

Maya Angelou

I am not a product of my circumstances. I am a product of my decisions.

Stephen Covey

Real difficulties can be overcome; it is only the imaginary ones that are unconquerable.

 Theodore  N. Vail

To love means loving the unlovable. To forgive means pardoning the unpardonable. Faith means believing the unbelievable. Hope means hoping when everything seems hopeless.

Gilbert K. Chesterton

To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.

Eleanor Roosevelt
