“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”
“Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don’t look back at it too long. Mistakes are life’s way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals. No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders. How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come.“
– Og Mandino
“Now the first step in solving any problem is acknowledging the reality of the situation you’re in.”
“It’s up to us as individuals to take control and responsibility for the type of lives that we want to lead. If you don’t design your life, someone else will design it for you, and you may just not like their idea of balance.”
– Nigel Marsh
“As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.
I wish you all very good lives.”
– J.K. Rowling at Harvard Commencement.
