Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of action; rather it is "timing" it waits on the right time to act, for the right principles and in the right way.

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
For each new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Philosopher, Poet, Author, Essayist
John R. Wooden
Basketball Coach, Author
Giving is so often thought of in terms of the things we give, but our greatest giving is of our time, and kindness, and even comfort for those who need it. We look on these gifts as unimportant – until we need them.

Give yourself entirely to those around you. Be generous with your blessings. A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.
That's what I consider true generosity: You give your all, and yet you always feel as if it costs you nothing.
Simone de Beauvoir
French Writer, Philosopher
Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you - not because they are nice, but because you are.

Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.

Listening is an attitude of the heart, a genuine desire to be with another which both attracts and heals.
L. J. Isham
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Stephen R. Covey
Diogenes of Sinope
The most basic and powerful way to connect to another person is to listen. Just listen. Perhaps the most important thing we ever give each other is our attention…. A loving silence often has far more power to heal and to connect than the most well-intentioned words.
Rachel Naomi Remen
Now, feel. I am thee and thou art me and all of one is the other. And feel now. Thou hast no heart but mine.
