Great public figures and world changers often come from very humble beginnings.
Suddenly, within me, there bubbled up this great need to see the world outside my window- to travel across the ocean and hear a language other than my own.
We are a nation of great thinkers and a world of tremendous leaders, and though I am not fearless, I am brave enough to walk the pot-holed, patched, and broken path that people before me tempted to pave.
No man can become rich without himself enriching others.
Our brains and bodies were designed to move. Lifeforms that don’t move don’t have brains. Plants don’t need brains.
There are too many ideas and things and people, too many directions to go. The reason it matters to care passionately about something is that it whittles the world down to a more manageable size.
The expression of hope is a smile.
Falling in love at first sight is as final as it is swift…but the growth of true friendship may be a life long affair.
