If you can't have faith in what is held up to you for faith, you must find things to believe in yourself, for a life without faith in something is too narrow a space to live.
Norman Vincent Peale
Joy and hope are never separate. I have never met a hopeful person who was depressed or a joyful person who had lost hope...It is important to become aware that at every moment of our life we have the opportunity to choose joy. It is in the choice that our true freedom lies, and that freedom is, in the final analysis, the freedom to love.
Happiness can be found in even the darkest of times, but only to those who remember to turn on the light.
The essence of optimism is that it takes no account of the present, but it is a source of inspiration, of vitality and hope where others have resigned; it enables a man to hold his head high, to claim the future for himself and not to abandon it to his enemy.
Pope John XXIII

My hero is a senior at my high school. I was at a point where I felt I couldn't handle it. I had just quit making a bad decision. I was just observing people like usual. I saw this girl who was ALWAYS smiling. ALWAYS. When I started to talk to her, I knew she had an amazing story. She never gave up.
