“The greatest gift you can give somebody is your

own personal development. I used to say, "If you

will take care of me, I will take care of you. "Now I

say, I will take care of me for you, if you will take

care of you for me.”

"After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and

chaining a soul. And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning and company

doesn’t mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts

and presents aren’t promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with

your head up and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief

of a child. And you learn to build all your roads on today because

tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of

falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn that even sunshine

burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate

your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to leave you flowers. And

you learn that you really can endure; You really are strong, you really do

have worth. And you learn, and you learn

With every goodbye you learn." - Veronica A Shoffstall

"So many people walk around with a meaningless

life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy

doing things they think are important. This is

because they're chasing the wrong things. The way

you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself

to loving others, devote yourself to your

community around you, and devote yourself to

creating something that gives you purpose and

"I love you not only for what you are, but for

what I am when I am with you. I love you not only

for what you have made of yourself, but for what

you are making of me. I love you for the part of me

that you bring out." - Roy Croft

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the

strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is

marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and

comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error

or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great

devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best,

knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst,

if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall

never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor

"You must take personal responsibility. You

cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or

and take new classes." -- Jim Rohn

"If you were to show me your current financial

plan, would I get so excited by it that I would go

across the country and lecture on it? If the

answer is no, then here's my question: ‘Why not?’

Why wouldn't you have a superior financial plan

that is taking you to the places you want to go?" --

Jim Rohn

“One of the interesting things about success is that we think we know

what it means. A lot of the time our ideas about what it would mean to live

successfully are not our own. They’re sucked in from other people. And we

also suck in messages from everything from the television to advertising

to marketing, etcetera. These are hugely powerful forces that define what

we want and how we view ourselves. What I want to argue for is not that

we should give up on our ideas of success, but that we should make sure

that they are our own. We should focus in on our ideas and make sure that

we own them, that we’re truly the authors of our own ambitions. Because

it’s bad enough not getting what you want, but it’s even worse to have an

idea of what it is you want and find out at the end of the journey that it

isn’t, in fact, what you wanted all along.” – alain de botton

Whenever anything happens to you, your brain asks two

questions: Will this mean pain or pleasure? What must I

do now to avoid pain and/or gain pleasure? The

answers are based on generalizations—the beliefs

you've formed about what leads to pain and pleasure.

While such shortcuts allow us to function, they can

also severely limit our lives. Some people, for example,

have generalized that they're incompetent because

they've occasionally failed to follow up, and

unfortunately, generalizations can become self-

fulfilling prophecies. – tony robins

“Be careful of retirement plans. Often they tend to

“Most dreams take a lot of hard work, commitment

and training. If yours doesn't, you're not dreaming

big enough.” – Robert Kiyosaki

"To become financially independent you must turn

part of your income into capital; turn capital into

enterprise; turn enterprise into profit; turn profit

into investment; and turn investment into financial

independence." -- Jim Rohn

“Disturb us, Lord,

When we are too well pleased with


When our dreams have come true

because we have

dreamed too little,

When we arrived safely

Because we sailed too close to the


Disturb us, Lord, when

We have lost our thirst

For the waters of life;

Having fallen in love with life,

We have ceased to dream of eternity

And in our efforts to build a new earth,

We have allowed our vision

Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,

To venture on wider seas

Where storms will show your mastery;

Where losing sight of land,

We shall find the stars.

We ask You to push back

The horizons of our hopes;

And to push into the future

In strength, courage, hope, and love.”

- Sir Francis Drake

“I learned that we can do anything, but we can’t do

everything… at least not at the same time. So think

of your priorities not in terms of what activities

you do, but when you do them. Timing is everything.

“there is no starting or stopping – only doing.”

Page 42: Favorite quotes

“pain is a relatively objective, physical

phenomenon; suffering is our psychological

resistance to what happens. Events may create

physical pain, but they do not in themselves create

suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress

happens when your mind resists what is… The only

problem in your life is your mind’s resistance to

life as it unfolds.”

Page 43: Favorite quotes

“If you don’t get what you want, you suffer; if you

get what you don’t want, you suffer; even when

you get exactly what you want, you still suffer

because you can’t hold on to it forever. Your mind

is your predicament. It wants to be free of change.

Free of pain, free of the obligations of life and

death. But change is a law, and no amount of

pretending will alter that reality.”

we’ve never done.”

“Wake up! If you knew for certain you had a

terminal illness – if you had little time left to live –

you would waste precious little of it! Well, I’m

telling you… you do have a terminal illness: it’s

called birth. You don’t have more than a few years

left. No one does! So be happy now, without reason

– or you will never be at all.”

“That music that you hear inside of you urging you

to take risks and follow your dreams is your

intuitive connection to the purpose in your heart

since birth. Be enthusiastic about all that you do.

Have that passion with the awareness that the

word enthusiasm literally means ‘the God (ethos)

within (iasm).’ Don’t die with your music still in

"Whatever an education is, it should make you a

unique individual, not a conformist: it should

furnish you with an original spirit with which to

tackle the big challenges; it should allow you to

find values which will be your road map through

life; it should make you spiritually rich, a person

who loves whatever you are doing, wherever you

are, whomever you are with; it should teach you

what is important, how to live and how to die."

- John Taylor Gatto

Page 53: Favorite quotes

"Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined,

self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have

firsthand encounters with the world. The world the

way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will

collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this

way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless

kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and

perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both.

This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-

"Education either functions as an instrument

which is used to facilitate the integration of the

younger generation into the logic of the present

system and bring about conformity to it, or it

becomes the practice of freedom - the means by

which men and women deal critically and

creatively with reality and discover how to

participate in the transformation of the world."

-Herman Hesse

“Education doesn’t need to be reformed – it needs

to be transformed. The key is not to standardize

education but to personalize it, to build

achievement on discovering the individual talents

of each child, to put students in an environment

where they want to learn and where they can

naturally discover their true passions.” – Sir Ken
