A person often meets his destiny on the road he took to avoid it. Jean de La Fontaine
Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth. Bradley Whitford
Work hard for what you want because it won't come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive. Leah LaBelle
In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision. Dalai Lama
True happiness is... to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future. Lucius Annaeus Seneca
