Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. That is to have succeeded.
