Somebody did a golden deed; Somebody proved a friend in need; Somebody sang a beautiful song; Somebody smiled the whole day long; Somebody thought, 'Tis sweet to live; Somebody said, I'm glad to give; Somebody fought a valiant fight; Somebody lived to shield the right; Was that somebody you?

Mother Teresa
At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by "I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat, I was naked and you clothed me. I was homeless, and you took me in.

Love is not patronizing and charity isn't about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same -- with charity you give love, so don't just give money but reach out your hand instead.

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

Do not envy wicked men, do not desire their company;
for their hearts plot violence, and their lips talk about making trouble.
By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established;
through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.

Allyson Felix
The most important lesson that I have learned is to trust God in every circumstance. Lots of times we go through different trials and following God's plan seems like it doesn't make any sense at all. God is always in control and he will never leave us.

Thomas Merton
The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

Ronald Reagan
Trust, but verify.

Bo Bennett
For every good reason there is to lie, there is a better reason to tell the truth.

Nanette Newman
A good marriage is at least 80 percent good luck in finding the right person at the right time. The rest is trust.

Trust is to human relationships what faith is to gospel living. It is the beginning place, the foundation upon which more can be built. Where trust is, love can flourish.

Peter Farquharson
Relationships of trust depend on our willingness to look not only to our own interests, but also the interests of others.

Alison Croggon
We are all mistaken sometimes; sometimes we do wrong things, things that have bad consequences. But it does not mean we are evil, or that we cannot be trusted ever afterward.

Trust men and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great.

Natalie Goldberg
Trust in what you love, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.

Walt Disney
The secret of making dreams come true can be summarized in four C's. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy; and the greatest of these is Confidence.

Erik H. Erikson
Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue inherent in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded, trust impaired.

David Armistead

The most damaging aspect of abuse is the trauma to our hearts and souls from being betrayed by the people that we love and trust.

John Fellows Akers
Set your expectations high; find men and women whose integrity and values you respect; get their agreement on a course of action; and give them your ultimate trust.

You'll always stay young if YOU live honestly, eat slowly, sleep sufficiently, work industriously, and worship faithfully.
Unknown Author

Conrad Aiken
All lovely things will have an ending,
All lovely things will fade and die,
And youth, that's now so bravely spending,
Will beg a penny by and by.

Alberto P. Casing
Youth is a season of one's life. Youth is a matter of chronological age. Live wisely your season of youth and learn life's wisdom while you're young. When you're ripe in years, you'll find the real meaning of your existence.

Matthew Henry
The flower of youth never appears more beautiful than when it bends toward the sun of righteousness.

Sophia Loren
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
How beautiful is youth!
How bright it gleams with its illusions, aspirations, dreams!
Book of Beginnings, Story without End, Each maid a heroine, and each man a friend!

Henry Ward Beecher
Young love is a flame; very pretty, often very hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. The love of the older and disciplined heart is as coals, deep-burning, unquenchable.

Benjamin Disraeli
The Youth of a Nation are the trustees of posterity.

Youth is the best time to be rich, and the best time to be poor.

Robert Southey
Live as long as you may, the first twenty years are the longest years of your life.

Ernest Hemingway
The error of youth is to believe that intelligence is a substitute for experience, while the error of age is to believe experience is a substitute for intelligence.

You can be young without money but you can’t be old without it.

Alfred North Whitehead
The deepest definition of youth is life as yet untouched by tragedy.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth,
to some good angel leave the rest;
For Time will teach thee soon the truth,
there are no birds in last year's nest!

George Bernard Shaw
Youth is a wonderful thing. What a crime to waste it on children.

Joseph Joubert
The passions of the young are vices in the old.

Anthony Brooks
Youth is young life plus curiosity minus understanding.

Franz Kafka
Youth is happy because it has the capacity to see beauty. Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.

Frank Lloyd Wright
Youth is a circumstance you can’t do anything about. The trick is to grow up without getting old.

Paul Géraldy
Young men wish; love, money and health. One day, they'll say; health, money and love.

Franklin D. Roosevelt
We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.

Malcolm Muggeridge
The pursuit of happiness, which American citizens are obliged to undertake, tends to involve them in trying to perpetuate the moods, tastes and aptitudes of youth.

Oliver Wendell Holmes
Through our great good fortune, in our youth our hearts were touched with fire. It was given to us to learn at the outset that life is a profound and passionate thing.

Stephen Colbert
Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying “yes” begins things. Saying “yes” is how things grow. Saying “yes” leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say “yes."

Samuel Johnson
Youth enters the world with very happy prejudices in her own favor. She imagines herself not only certain of accomplishing every adventure, but of obtaining those rewards which the accomplishment may deserve. She is not easily persuaded to believe that the force of merit can be resisted by obstinacy and avarice, or its luster darkened by envy and malignity.

Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.

John W. Gardner
Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.

He who is of calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and age are equally a burden.

Milton S. Hershey
Young man: Be honest; train yourself for useful work; love God.

Oscar Wilde
To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable.

Dr. Seuss
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who'll decide where to go.

John Wooden
Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

Oscar Wilde
Young people nowadays imagine that money is everything and when they grow older they know it.

Robert Kennedy
This world demands the qualities of youth: not a time of life but a state of mind, a temper of the will, a quality of imagination, a predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.

Diogenes Laertius
The foundation of every state is the education of its youth.

Dave Barry
You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.

Luella F. Phean
Youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind. You are as old as your doubt, your fear, your despair. The way to keep young is to keep your faith young. Keep your self confidence young. Keep your hope young.

H. V. Wade
Youth today must be strong, unafraid, and a better taxpayer than its father.

Samuel Butler
Youth is like spring, an over praised season more remarkable for biting winds than genial breezes. Autumn is the mellower season, and what we lose in flowers we more than gain in fruits.

Difficult times have helped me to understand better than before, how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way, and that so many things that one goes worrying about are of no importance whatsoever.

God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well.

Anthony Robbins
Live life fully while you’re here. Experience everything. Take care of yourself and your friends. Have fun, be crazy, be weird. Go out and screw up! You’re going to anyway, so you might as well enjoy the process. Take the opportunity to learn from your mistakes: find the cause of your problem and eliminate it. Don’t try to be perfect; just be an excellent example of being human.

Havelock Ellis
All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.

Earl Nightingale

The most noteworthy thing about gardeners is that they are always optimistic, always enterprising, and never satisfied. They always look forward to doing something better than they have ever done before.

Reginald Farrer
I think the true gardener is a lover of his flowers, not a critic of them. I think the true gardener is the reverent servant of Nature, not her truculent, wife-beating master. I think the true gardener, the older he grows, should more and more develop a humble, grateful and uncertain spirit.

Chinese Proverb
In the midst of great joy, do not promise anyone anything. In the midst of great anger, do not answer anyone's letter.

German Proverb
Nothing weights lighter than a promise.

John Green
Sometimes people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them.

Karen Marie Moning
Words can be twisted into any shape. Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is an entirely different beast. The wisest man is the silent one. Examine his actions. Judge him by them.

Mae West
An ounce of performance is worth pounds of promises.

Red Cloud
They made us many promises, more than I can remember, but they never kept but one; they promised to take our land, and they took it.

Robert Brault
Each morning I gaze at the eastern horizon, and if the sun keeps its promise, I keep mine.

Shirley Maclaine
It is useless to hold a person to anything he says while he is in love, drunk, or running for office.

Smith Wigglesworth
Enter into the promises of God. It is your inheritance. You will do more in one year if you are really filled with the Holy Ghost than you could do in fifty years apart from Him.

Steve Maraboli
I feel keeping a promise to yourself is a direct reflection of the love you have for yourself. I used to make promises to myself and find them easy to break. Today, I love myself enough to not only make a promise to myself, but I love myself enough to keep that promise.

Teddy Pendergrass
