So, check out the following, and let the ones that really strike you sink in deeply.  (I  have the source for some, but not for most).  

  • We miss 100% of the shots we never take. (Wayne Gretsky) 
  • Behavior unchallenged is encouraged.
  • One doesn’t discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. (Andre Gide)
  • Being a parent is difficult for two reasons. You are expected to teach those you love the most to get along without you and, secondly, you don’t know for twenty years if you’re any good at it!
  • If you love something let it go. If it comes back to you it’s yours; if it doesn’t, it never was.
  • The possessions we have say little about us; how we feel about our possessions defines us.
  • We can measure how smart we are by our ability to understand and appreciate the intelligence of someone else.
  • Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.  (Henry Ford) 
  • Nothing worth doing in life is ever easy. If it were, then everybody would be doing it. 
  • If we continue to live in the past, our life is history.   
  • If we don’t change directions, we may just end up where we are headed.
  • It is better to light the candle than to curse the darkness.
  • Lack of preparation on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
  • Pain is nature letting us know we are still alive and need to do something
  • The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.
  • We are as big as the little things that bother us.
  • Sometimes we must be hurt in order to grow, fail in order to know, and lose in order to gain because some lessons are learned only through pain. From them we can become stronger.
  • Those who are good at making excuses are seldom good at anything else.
  • We cannot become what we cannot see ourselves becoming.
  • Grass is not greener on the other side of the fence, it’s greener where it’s watered; go home, water your grass.
  • Some birds aren’t meant to be caged; their feathers are just too bright.  
  • A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove…but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.     
  • Can we dare complain about what we permit?  
  • Success – how high we bounce after hitting bottom.
  • Perseverance is not a long race; it is just short races one after another.
