You see, it's never the environment; it's never the events of our lives, but the meaning we attach to the events - how we interpret them - that shapes who we are today and who we'll become tomorrow.
The best cure for the body is a quiet mind.
I wish to say what I think and feel today, with the proviso that tomorrow perhaps I shall contradict it all.
The paradoxes of today are the prejudices of tomorrow, since the most benighted and the most deplorable prejudices have had their moment of novelty when fashion lent them its fragile grace.
Dreams are today's answers to tomorrow's questions.
Dreaming of a to-morrow, which to-morrow, will be as distant then as 'tis to-day.
That a man is successful who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much, who has gained the respect of the intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in others and gave the best he had.

On the mountains of truth you can never climb in vain: either you will reach a point higher up today, or you will be training your powers so that you will be able to climb higher tomorrow.
You too must not count too much on your reality as you feel it today, since like yesterday, it may prove an illusion for you tomorrow.
Glorify who you are today, do not condemn who you were yesterday, and dream of who you can be tomorrow.
The best way to be boring is to leave nothing out.
