Greed is an ugly default... Sharing is Caring
“This is going to sound crazy, but… from the moment I first set eyes on you
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you.”
― Leigh Fallon
“The world needs more love at first sight.”
― Maggie Stiefvater
“As soon as I look up, his eyes click onto my face.
The breath whooshes out of my body and everything freezes for a second,
as though I’m looking at him through my camera lens, zoomed in all the way,
the world pausing for that tiny span of time between the opening and closing of the shutter.”
― Lauren Oliver
Love at first sight is easy to understand; it’s when two people
have been looking at each other for a lifetime that it becomes a miracle.
The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.
We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.
Lost time is never found again.
You may delay, but time will not.
We must use time as a tool, not as a couch.
Sunlight is painting.
Sunlight fell upon the wall; the wall received a borrowed splendor.
Why set your heart on a piece of earth, O simple one?
Seek out the source which shines forever.
Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
The sun is new each day.
Ask not what your teammates can do for you.
Ask what you can do for your teammates.
You must never be satisfied with losing.
You must get angry, terribly angry, about losing.
But the mark of the good loser is that he takes his anger out on himself
and not his victorious opponents or on his teammates.
“The strength of the team is each individual member. The strength of each member is the team.”
― Phil Jackson
“Either we’re a team or we aren’t. Either you trust me or you don’t.”
― Ally Carter
Determination gives you the resolve to keep going
in spite of the roadblocks that lay before you.
The truest wisdom is a resolute determination.
Do not underestimate the determination of a quiet man.
Never go backward. Attempt, and do it with all your might. Determination is power.
Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
Where there is no struggle, there is no strength.
Strength and growth come only through continuous effort and struggle.
You have power over your mind – not outside events.
Realize this, and you will find strength.
‘Passione’ is a selection of the music moments that have accompanied my youth;
a collection of cherished memories, of moments, of fleeting emotions, of sleepless nights.
“You know you love him when you can’t sleep at night and get up early to talk to him the next morning.”
― Kayla Carson
“Nothing like poetry when you lie awake at night.
It keeps the old brain limber. It washes away the mud and sand that keeps on blocking up the bends.
Like waves to make the pebbles dance on my old floors.
And turn them into rubies and jacinths; or at any rate, good imitations.”
― Joyce Cary
“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl
Appreciation is a wonderful thing:
It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well.
“If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery,
it would not seem so wonderful at all.”
“If you hear how wonderful you are often enough,
you begin to believe it, no matter how you try to resist it.”
― Ben Carson
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable,
but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.
“It’s spring fever.
That is what the name of it.
And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” – Mark Twain
“Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.” – Doug Larson
“Despite the forecast, live like it’s Spring.”- Lilly Pulitzer
“In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.” – Margaret Atwood
“Walk lightly in the spring; Mother Earth is pregnant.” – Native American Indian Proverb (Kiowa)
Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Our greatest weakness lies in giving up.
The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.
The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential…
these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.

― Rainer Maria Rilke

― Leo Tolstoy
