FC: Hanna Naomi Nilson | 2011
1: Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you. -Christian D. Larson
2: The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
5: Believe deep down in your heart that you're destined to do great things.
6: Dream | Believe
7: Succeed | Hope
9: Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die tomorrow.
10: The journey of a thousand miles, begins with a single step.
13: Life is a succession of moments, to live each one is to succeed. -Corita Kent
15: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people, and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics, and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,or a redeemed social condition. To know that one life has even breathed easier because you have lived, This is to have succeeded
17: Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, let go of what you can't change, kiss slowly, play hard, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything, and have no regrets. Life is too short to be anything but happy.
21: Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. You just have to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can, spend all your money, tell someone what they mean to you, tell someone off, speak out. Dance in the pouring rain, hold someone's hand, comfort a friend, pig out. Fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt. Smile until your face hurts, don't be afraid to take chances, or fall in love..and most of all, live in the moment. When you look back someday knowing you have no regrets it's going to be what makes you smile.
23: My philosophy is that, not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment, puts you in the best place for the next moment. -Oprah Winfrey
24: What lies before us, and what lies behind us,
25: are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
27: Think like a Queen. A Queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is just another stepping stone to greatness. -Oprah Winfrey
28: RISK More than others think is safe. CARE More than others think is wise. DREAM More than others think is practical. EXPECT More than others think is possible.
29: LIVE WELL LAUGH OFTEN LOVE MUCH
35: Your life has PURPOSE Your story is IMPORTANT Your dreams COUNT Your voice MATTERS You were born to make an IMPACT
37: Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect, it means you have decided to see beyond the imperfections.
39: Strength means recognizing that it is impossible to be strong all the time.
41: Life is short, LIVE IT. Love is rare, GRAB IT. Anger is bad, DUMP IT. Fear is awful, FACE IT. Memories are sweet, CHERISH IT.
42: So keep your head high. Keep your chin up. And most importantly, keep smiling. Because life is a beautiful thing, and there's so much to smile about.
43: Let your life shine, Be a source of strength and courage. Share your wisdom. Radiate love.
48: I AM STRONG Because I know my weaknesses. I AM BEAUTIFUL Because I am aware of my flaws. I AM FEARLESS Because I've learned to recognize illusion from reality. I AM WISE Because I learn from my mistakes. I AM A LOVER Because I have felt hate. I CAN LAUGH Because I have known sadness.

88: This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. If you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching TV. If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people. We are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream and share your passion.
