" Every hardship, let down, or tough time in my life has made me who I am today. And I cannot imagine being anyone different."
Written in 2009 by Emily D. --- Minnesota
This is something I recently realized when wondering why all of this was happening to me. Everything bad in my life has made me stronger and the person I am today, and the fact that I have figured this out, makes me pretty damn happy about who I am.

" You can try to be something you're not, or be Great as someone you are!"
Written in 1999 by Glenn Algenius --- Sweden
I came up with this self authored quote when I was having a discussion with a good friend of mine a few years ago. It rang true with both of us thereafter for years and I used the words many times to remind myself of who I am and that I should not try to be something or someone I really am not. This "rule" served as the litmus test with regards to work or social life and many other reasons. I hope it may inspire and help others as well.

" If you truly love someone, and think that you have it all figured out, try and look at yourself through the eyes of the person who you say you love. And then, only then, will you truly see that he/she loves you for the person you are, and not the person you try to be."
Written in 2009 by Kenneth Burchett --- Nevada
I wrote this selection because some people say they have it figured out and the truth is, that no one truly knows.

" Given any condition anyone is in, good or bad, a man has only two choices to make: Change the condition or Adapt to it.

Given any behavior a man does or receives, it has only two aspects:
Self-behavior, which is a controllable factor or Foreign-behavior, which cannot be controlled by any means.

To change or to adapt any condition, a man can only control his behavior and not others (Foreign behavior)."
Written in 2009 by Shreekant Vader --- India
I have this thought based on my experience with life.

" The greatest gift you can give a child is optimism; with it they will never quit, without it they will never begin."
Copyright 1995 Terry McManus
When my children were little and I put them to bed, I lay down with them and I would always say the same thing, "It's going to be a big day tomorrow!" in an excited voice. They would ask me why and I would always find something about the next day that they could look forward to. If it was going to rain, then they would be able to wear their yellow raincoats. Maybe Grandma was coming over and she could take them on the bus downtown. Perhaps a friend was coming to play. Now that they are in their 20's, they have that positive outlook that no matter what the problems of the day may be, there is always something to look forward to. They don't quit. I hope your children have the same.

" A wise man is one who always acts, but never reacts."
Written in 2009 by Gita P. --- Malta
I think we live in a world where everyone is getting selfish and wants to prove others wrong. If we give a little time, after receiving an action and think what has happened and maybe calm down a bit, our reactions might be different. Perhaps, who knows, we might avoid any fight/quarrel and solve things in a much more human way.

" Every morning when we wake up, we are given a choice of keeping wanting to fight on to achieve one's goals, dream, or simply just live everyday like routine. Everyday is a new beginning, cherish it and you will find a whole new meaning in life not just a meaningless routine everyday."

" Don't be like the Key-holder who carries the key but never opens the door. You are the key, the very solution to the world's problem. You bear rule. Don't look down on yourself."
Copyright 2008 Philemon Ebuka
No matter how small the key, it will still open the door. No matter how small you may feel, you are still special.

" It's hard to help someone who doesn't want to help themselves! But it's not impossible! Don't give up on someone in need because you would not want someone to give up on you!"
Written in 2009 by Ethen Carrell --- California
I believe it can inspire people to help others despite their negative attitudes. A lot of people give up helping others because they have negative results but some times it takes more than one try to help someone!
