"When one door closes another opens. But often we look so long so regretfully upon the closed door that we fail to see the one that has opened for us."

"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned."

"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude. Don't complain."

"Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough."
"Carefully watch your THOUGHTS, for they become your WORDS. Manage and watch your WORDS, for they will become your ACTIONS. Consider and judge your ACTIONS, for they have become your HABITS.

"You will never "find" time for anything. If you want time, you must make it."
"They can because they think they can."
"Fear does not have any special power unless you empower it by submitting to it."
