“Guard your roving thoughts with a jealous care, for speech is but the dealer of thoughts, and every fool can plainly read in your words what is the hour of your thoughts.”
Alfred Lord Tennyson
“I have no duty to be anyone's Friend and no man in the world has a duty to be mine. No claims, no shadow of necessity. Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art, like the universe itself (for God did not need to create). It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”
“What men and women need is encouragement. Their natural resisting powers should be strengthened, not weakened. Instead of always harping on a man's faults, tell him of his virtues. Try to pull him out of his rut. Hold up to him his better self, his real self that can dare and do and win out! People radiate what is in their minds and in their hearts.”
Eleanor H. Porter, Pollyanna
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
"Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. The real miracle is the love that inspires them. In this sense everything that comes from love is a miracle."
