Change your thoughts and you change your world.

Imagination is the true magic carpet.

The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism,

Action is a great restorer and builder of confidence. Inaction is not only the result, but the cause, of fear. Perhaps the action you take will be successful; perhaps different action or adjustments will have to follow. But any action is better than no action at all.

We struggle with complexities and avoid the simplicities.

If you put off everything till you’re sure of it, you’ll get nothing done.

The way to happiness; keep your heart free from hate, your mind free from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, scatter sunshine, forget self, and think of others.
