You, whose day this is, get out your rainbow colors, that you
might make it beautiful.  -- Nekoosa Native American Saying
If nature has made you a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart.
And, though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is
always full, and you can give things out of that.  -- Frances Burnett
People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is
also a confession of character.  -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
A grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.  He said, "I feel as if I have two
wolves fighting in my heart.  One wolf is vengeful, angry and hateful.  The other is fair,
compassionate and loving."  The grandson asked him, "Which wolf will win the fight in
your heart?"  The grandfather answered, "The one I feed"  -- Native American Proverb
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.  -- Robert Louis Stevenson
What a cruel thing it is to fill our hearts with hatred for our neighbors and
to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.  -- Gen. Robert E. Lee
So long as we love, we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would say that we are
indispensable; no one is useless while they have a friend.  -- Robert Louis Stevenson
All you have shall some day be given; therefore, give now, that the season
of giving may be yours and not your inheritors.  -- Kahlil Gibran
Fear less, hope more; talk less, say more; hate less, love more;
and all good things are yours.  -- Swedish Proverb
Every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies a theft from those who
hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed, those who
are ill and not healed.  -- Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower
Each second we live is a new and unique moment, a moment that will never be again.
And what do we teach our children?  We teach them that 2 and 2 make 4 and tha Parist
is the capital of France.  When will we also teach them what they are?  We should say to
each of them:  You are unique.  In all the years that have passed, there has never
been another child like you.  You are a marvel.  You have the capacity for anything.
We must all work to make the world worthy of its children.  -- Pablo Casais
Remember that you are an actor in a play and the playwright chooses the
manner of it...your business is to act the character that is given you,
and act it well; the choice of the cast is another's.  -- Epictetus
The beauty of the trees, the softness of the air,
the fragrance of the grass, speaks to me.
The summit of the mountain, the thunder of the sky,
The rhythm of the sea, speaks to me.
The strength of the fire, the trail of the sun,
And the life that never goes away,
They speak to me, and my heart soars.  -- Chief Dan George
