There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow. Today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly live.
—Lhamo Thondup, the 14th Dalai Lama
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions.
When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love.
—Martin Luther King Jr.
Absence of gratitude is the mark of the narrow uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance of self-sufficiency… Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is concern for the rights and property of others. Without appreciation there is arrogance and evil.
—Gordon B. Hinckley
