The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.
When one neighbor helps another, we strengthen our communities.
– Jennifer Pahlka
If it’s not fun, you’re not doing it right.
– Bob Basso
Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do, long after the mood you said it in has left.

One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.

Heroes didn’t leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn’t wear boots and capes.

If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were: any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bells tolls; it tolls for thee.
Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.
Everything is connected, no one thing can change by itself.
Life has a way of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen as once.
