“When you arise in the morning think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive, to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”
The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.

One great man was mocked because of his lifelong efforts to bring about peace in his community.

“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

“The one whose life is centered only around gathering riches and indulging all worldly pleasures is like an ant inside someone’s house who worked all through the day to gather sugar, and ant meat, and when evening came, the home owner swept everything off both ant and ant meat alike.

“There comes a time when you realize that your life is no longer in any man’s hands. Not in your parents, or your siblings, or friends, not in yours, but in the hand of God who does as He wills. And then you stop fighting and kicking against the pricks. To gain that smoother Iife of peace, in surrender. Then all you can say is:
“Not my will Lord, but yours be done.”
