If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.
I believe that friends are quiet angels who sit on our shoulders and lift our wings when we forget how to fly.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
It may be that when we no longer know what to do, we have come to our real work, and when we no longer know which way to go, we have begun our real journey.
Creativity doesn't wait for that perfect moment. It fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones.
It's your place in the world; it's your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.
Know in your heart that all things are possible. We couldn't conceive of a miracle if none had ever happened.
I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.

Love Laugh Live With CancerSubmitted by Phyllis Chandler
I am the last of six children of a very close knit family. At age 13, I watched my father endure the pain associated with stomach cancer.

'Inspiration is the language of a free spirit'
with love to all Mary Ann Plamenac motivational life coach
I took my diagnosis of skin cancer (which includes surgeries and burning) and turned it around to help kids know about addictions (mine was to tanning) and skin cancer. I turned a negative into a positive for both myself and the students I talk to.

Inspiration is an internal event. I seemed to have locked the door, yet got some serious help opening it through an online mentoring site (their name says it all!) called FTRnation.com (aka Free Thinking Renegades). I realized my thinking wasn't free, and had to find my way back to it. Loved your post and other comments. Thanks for the info!!

The quote that gets my day started all the time is Live, Laugh, Love. I hope these words will inspire people all day.
Ms. Richardson, Flordia
Including others can be as simple as sharing your ethnic/family meal with someone that different than you. I shared my favorite cookbook and recipe with a co-worker of a different ethnic background. He approached me during break and asked for help to make American food. His child is in school and is exposed to many new tastes. I was honored.

It is such a wonderful site for the youngsters . Everyone should know the values, motivation and inspiration to all. I really enjoy and appreciate for your valuable quotes, videos and audios. Thank you so much.
The world definitely needs more encouragement and inspiration. Love all your advertising spots on T.V. If more people took your messages to heart and tried to pass them on, what a much more pleasant world this would be. Keep up the great work! I'm really a believer in random acts of kindness. Wish more folks felt the same!
Carolyn H. Smith, Brandon, Mississippi
I've been logging on to your site for about a year or so. I must tell you that it is truly amazing the way I have changed my ways and behavior. The way I act and react to simple day to day obstacles have changed for the better thanks to you.

Thanks so mcuh for all your wonderful messages of hope, inspiration, kindness...doing the right thing! In this world of "me first" and endless cynicism, you provide the proverbial beacon of light, in an otherwise dark world. Keep it up, its working.

Thank you for producing the "Inspire" TV spot "You Raise me Up". It is so refreshing to see something positive on TV. Keep it up. It is very much appreciated!
Win T., Lake Placid, Florida
I am a nursing home nurse, and every time that I work, I smile. Some nurses say that I am little crazy. But I explain to them that the smile is contagious and chronic. The more you do, the more you receive and is more natural. Thank you for this little corner, I really enjoy and appreciate yours advertising.
