Inspirations

“The best people are those who are most useful to others.”
– Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.)
Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
― Martin Luther King Jr.
“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.”
― Rabindranath Tagore
“Human beings are free except when humanity needs them. Maybe humanity needs you. To do something. Maybe humanity needs me—to find out what you’re good for. We might both do despicable things, Ender, but if humankind survives, then we were good tools.”
― Orson Scott Card, Ender’s Game
“The human measure of a human life is its income; the divine measure of a life is its outgo, its overflow--its contribution to the welfare of all.
― William Jennings Bryan

“And I sometimes think that so much of our life takes place inside our heads, in memory or imagination or interpretation or speculation, that if I really want to change my life I might best begin by changing my mind. ”

— Pico Iyer

“If you have yet to be called an incorrigable, defiant woman,
don’t worry, there is still time”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estes

Always the setting forth was the same, Same sea, same dangers waiting for him, As though he had got nowhere but older. Behind him on the receding shore, The identical reproaches, and somewhere, Out before him, the unraveling patience, He was wedded to. There were the islands, Each with its woman and twining welcome, To be navigated, and one to call “home.” The knowledge of all that he had betrayed, Grew till it was the same where he stayed, Or went. Therefore he went. And what wonder, If sometimes he could not remember, Which was the one who wished on his departure, Perils that he could never sail through, And which, improbable remote, and true, Was the one he kept sailing home to?”

“Odysseus” by W.S. Merwin

“The secret to happiness is freedom. And the secret to freedom is courage.”

– Thucydides 

Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”  

– Jim Rohn

When I look into the future, it’s so bright it burns my eyes.” — Oprah Winfrey

“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer.” — Proverbs 11:24

Joy is the ultimate rebellion. Happiness is the fastest track to success. Bliss is the best achievement.” – Chani Nicholas
