Life does not give you what you ask for. It gives you the people, places and situations that allow you to develop what you ask for. If you don’t get it right the first time, life will give it to you again because life is very generous that way.
Life’s opportunities never end. God designed you to be a continual learner, a continual doer, a continual explorer and a continual giver. He never authorized a ‘retirement age’ from those pursuits!
Life is very interesting... in the end, some of your greatest pains become your greatest strengths.
Life is not a dress rehearsal. Stop practicing what you're going to do and just go do it.
Live your life and forget your age.
Mile by mile, life's a trial. Yard by yard, life is hard. Inch by inch, life's a cinch.
I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business.
If you travel alone, you can probably go faster. But the journey will never be as rewarding, and you probably won't be able to go as far.
I think of life as a good book. The further you get into it, the more it begins to make sense.
You are here to make the world a better place because you’ve lived.
Heroes do extraordinary things. What I did was not an extraordinary thing. It was normal.
Live all you can—it’s a mistake not to.
