It's not enough to be busy. The question is, what are we busy about?
Henry David Thoreau
And in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.
All life is a chance. The person who goes farthest is the one who is willing to do and dare.
If you don't make mistakes, you're not working on hard enough problems. And that's a big mistake.
Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have anything in the beginning.
Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else.
Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold -- but so does a hard-boiled egg.
Our very business in life is not to get ahead of others ... But to get ahead of ourselves.
Thomas L. Monson
Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
Never think that God's delays are God's denials. Hold on; hold fast; hold out. Patience is genius.
