Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. 
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you're tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference.

It's easy to be thankful for the good things.

A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.

Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.

I Feared … 

I feared being alone
Until I learned to like Myself.
I feared failure
Until I realized that I only Fail when I don't try.
I feared success
Until I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself.

I feared people's opinions
Until I learned that people would have opinions about me anyway. 
I feared rejection
Until I learned to have faith in myself.
I feared pain
Until I learned that it's necessary for growth

I feared the truth
Until I saw the ugliness in lies.
I feared life
Until I experienced its beauty .
I feared death
Until I realized that it's not an end, but a beginning. 

I feared my destiny,
Until I realized that I had the power to change my life.
I feared hate
Until I saw that it was nothing more than ignorance.
I feared love
Until it touched my heart, making the darkness fade into endless sunny days.

Until I learned how to laugh at myself. 
I feared growing old
Until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.
I feared the future
Until I realized that Life just kept getting better.
I feared the past 
Until I realized that It could no longer hurt me.

I feared the dark
Until I saw the beauty of the starlight.
I feared the light
Until I learned that the Truth would give me Strength.
I feared change,
Until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a Metamorphosis before it could fly.

Good Morning Friends...

Throughout life comes good, comes bad
Things make us happy and make us sad
People give out love, but also hate
Those that share love are closest mates

At times in life we feel unappreciated
And that all people are filled with hatred
We could hold grudges but what are they worth
Feelings of bitterness whilst we live on this earth

Forgive and forget the mistakes people make
We have all fallen guilty to giving less then we take
Share love, laughter and positive feelings
And you'll begin to see that life is worth living!

Albert Einstein Quotes

“When you sit with a nice girl for two hours,
it seems like two minutes.
When you sit on a hot stove for two minutes,
it seems like two hours.
That’s relativity.”

“If I had only known, I would have been a locksmith.”

“Gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.”

“Education is that which remains when one has forgotten everything learned in school.”

“Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I am not sure about the former.”

“A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life, depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received.”

“If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim me as a German,
and France will declare that I am a citizen of the world.

Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a German, and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.”

Great Positive Quotes

* When once you have tasted flight you will always walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward:
for there you have been and there you will always be.
Use what talent you possess –

* The woods would be very silent
if no birds sang except those that sang best.

* To desire and strive to be of some service to the world,
To aim at doing something which shall really increase the happiness and 
welfare and virtue of mankind - this is a choice which is possible
for all of us; and surely it is a good haven to sail for.

* Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear,
too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but
for those who love, time is eternity.

* There is only one way to get ready for immortality,
and that is to love this life and live it as bravely
and faithfully and cheerfully as we can.

* There is no personal charm so great as the charm of
a cheerful temperament.

* There is a loftier ambition than merely to stand high in the world.
It is to stoop down and lift mankind a little higher.

* The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another.
The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.

The Good Attitude
Patience is not the ability to wait,
but the ability to keep a good attitude while you wait.

The Thoughts of the Mahatma Gandhi

Answers for our Times :

- The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. 

- God sometimes does try to the uttermost those whom he wishes to bless. 

- When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, 
my soul expands in the worship of the creator. 

- Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. 

- If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children. 

- I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself,
I won't presume to probe into the faults of others. 
There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed. 
It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honored by the humiliation of their fellow beings. 

- It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business. 

- In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart. 

- There is nothing that wastes the body like worry, and one who has any faith in God should be ashamed to worry about anything whatsoever. 

- To give service to a single heart by a single act is better than a thousand heads bowing in prayer. 

- You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; 
if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, 
the ocean does not become dirty. 

- You must be the change you wish to see in the world.

Success Of A Farmer

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honours and prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbours.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbours when they are entering corn in the competition with yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother?" 

The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbours grow inferior, sub-standard and poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbours to grow good corns too." 

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbours' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life! 

Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbours and colleagues to be at peace. Those who choose to live well must help others live well too. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbours and all. 

"Success breeds Success."

In A Friendship

In a friendship,
We're free to expose,
Parts of ourselves,
Nobody else knows.

But the thing that sustains it
And sets it apart,
Is not something spoken,
It's a bond of the heart.

True friends are rare,
In a lifetime two or three,
I'm so glad it happened,
Between you and me!

Beautiful Friends

Friends who have love in their hearts
They give you hope when you are sad
Their concern lets you know
The words they say make you glad

Friends who share positive thoughts
Who take the time to be sure you're all right
Wonderful friends who really care
You know they care to your delight

Loving Friends

Friends who are fun to be around
They take the clouds out of the sky
It makes you feel like the sun is shinning
Your time is brighter and you sigh

These words are for you dear friends
To let you know I am here for you
To share, give you hope, and show my love for all
In times when your skies are not blue

- Joyce Ann Geyer
