Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

Confidence, like art, never comes from having all the answers; it comes from being open to all the questions.
Earl Gray Stevens
CLASS AND GRACE
In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.
The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking, don't settle.

When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it's bottomless, that it doesn't have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.
LIVE YOUR DREAMS
Vincent Van Gogh
Post Impressionist Painter
American Country Music Artist
Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have—life itself.
Just as man cannot live without dreams, he cannot live without hope. If dreams reflect the past, hope summons the future.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
We do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better.
People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
We have not all had the good fortune to be ladies. We have not all been generals, or poets, or statesmen; but when the toast works down to the babies, we stand on common ground - for we have all been babies.
[Samuel Clemens] Humorist, Essayist, Novelist
SPREAD YOUR WINGS
You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover will be yourself.
Actor, Director, Screenwriter
Some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity...
American Comedian, Actress
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.
I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.
Poet, Playwright, Essayist
We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery, we need humanity. More than cleverness, we need kindness and gentleness.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
Be like the bird that, passing on her flight awhile on boughs too slight, feels them give way beneath her, and yet sings, knowing that she hath wings.
Poet, Novelist, Playwright
For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
Former President Of South Africa
Poet, Playwright, Art Critic
Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.
John F. Kennedy
35th Us President
To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.
