Scatter Sunshine

Apple Blossoms 1

“The way to happiness:

Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry.

Live simply, expect little, give much.

Scatter sunshine, forget self, think of others.”

~ Norman Vincent Peale

“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.”
~William Wordsworth

Bald Eagle

“People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.

Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.

Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.

Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.

Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.

Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.

Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.

Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.

Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.

Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you’ll get kicked in the teeth.

Give the world the best you have anyway.”

― Kent M. Keith

Daring Greatly

Woman Climber

Savor these wonderful words by Theodore Roosevelt:

“It is not the critic who counts;

not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled

or where the doer of deeds could have done them 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 short again and again;

who knows great enthusiasms,

the great devotions;

who spends himself in 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 fails while daring greatly

so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Small minds discuss people.

Average minds discuss events.

Great minds discuss ideas.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt
