Giving Back Quotations
Muhammad Ali [Cassius Clay]
Think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!
Theodor Seuss Geisel
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
Laugh at yourself, but don't ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don't leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.
Saint Francis of Assisi
I've come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that's as unique as a fingerprint and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe lead you.
The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.
Have faith in yourself. But have faith in your friends and neighbors, too. I know life is competitive- but it isn't a jungle. Like begets like. Faith inspires faith. People give back substantially what we give them.
