Far away, there in the sunshine, are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.

- L.M. Alcott


As I grow older, I simplify both my science and my religion. Books mean less to me; prayers mean less; potions, pills and drugs mean less; but peace, friendship, love and a life of usefulness mean more; infinitely more.

- Silas Hubbard, MD



Nothing is easier than fault- finding; no talent, no self- denial, no brains, no character are required to set up in the grumbling business.

- Robert West



The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing which stands in the way. Some see Nature all ridicule and deformity, and by these I shall not regulate my proportions; and some scarce see Nature at all. But to the eyes of the man of imagination, Nature is imagination itself. As a man is, so he sees.

- William Blake



So long as we love, we serve. So long as we are loved by others I would almost say we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.

-R.L. Stevenson



I love you for what you are, but I love you yet more for what you are going to be.

I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals. I pray for your desires that they may be great, rather than for your satisfactions, which may be so hazardously little.

A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall. The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud where in the pangs and ecstacies of desire are working for larger and finer growth.

You are going toward something great. I am on the way with you and therefore I love you.

- Carl Sandberg



No civilization is complete which does not include the dumb and defenseless of God's creatures within the sphere of charity and mercy.

- Queen Victoria



If you succeed in life, you must do it in spite of the efforts of others to pull you down. There is nothing in the idea that people are willing to help those who help themselves. People are willing to help a man who can't help himself, but as soon as a man is able to help himself, and does it, they join in making his life as uncomfortable as possible.

- E.W. Howe



My share of the work of the world may be limited, but the fact that it is work makes it precious. Darwin could work only half an hour at a time; yet in many diligent half-hours he laid anew the foundations of philosophy.

Green, the historian, tells us that the world is moved not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.

- Helen Keller



The longer I live, the more deeply I am convinced that which makes the difference between one man and another - between the weak and the powerful, the great and the insignificant - is energy, invincible determination, a purpose once formed and then death or victory.

- Powell Buxton



And in the end, the love you take, is equal to love... you make.

- Lennon/McCartney
