Find a purpose to serve, not a lifestyle to live.
You have to accept whatever comes, and the only important thing is that you meet it with the best you have to give.
Do not stop thinking of life as an adventure. You have no security unless you can live bravely, excitingly, imaginatively; unless you can choose a challenge instead of competence.
People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.
George Bernard Shaw
Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it.
Each day wake up and ask yourself what will make you feel most alive that day.
