Giving Back Quotations
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
Antoine de Sainte-Exupery
Mazhar El Shorbagi
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
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.
Sir David Tang
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.
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.
Sir Winston Churchill
