Quotes on The Future

"The best way to predict your future is to create it."
- Peter Drucker

"Put your future in good hands - your own."
- Anonymous

"I'm an optimist.
I've always believed the future is going to be better than the past.
And I also believe I have a role in that.
The great thing about human beings, myself in particular,
is that I can change. I can do better.
If you can get up every day, stay optimistic, and believe the future is better than the past, those few things get you through a lot of tough times."

- Jeffrey Immelt

"The future depends entirely on what each of us does every day."
- Gloria Steinem

"My will shall shape the future.
Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own.
I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me or I can be lost in the maze.
My choice; my responsibility; win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."
- Elaine Maxwell

Two Days We Should Not Worry About

Life- Gilda Radner

There are two days in every week about which we should not worry,
two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.

One of these days is Yesterday
with all its mistakes and cares,
its faults and blunders,
its aches and pains.

Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.

We cannot undo a single act we performed;
we cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.

The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow
with all its possible adversities, its burdens,
its large promise and its poor performance;
Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.

Tomorrow's sun will rise,
either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds, but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow,
for it is yet to be born.

This leaves only one day, Today.
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities
Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.

It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad,
it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday
and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.

Let us, therefore,
Live but one day at a time.

Quotes on Worrying

"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy."
- Leo Buscaglia

"It makes no sense to worry about things you have no control over because there's nothing you can do about them, and why worry about things you do control?
The activity of worrying keeps you immobilized."
- Wayne Dyer

"Clearly understand, there isn't any situation that isn't made worse by worry.
Worry never solves anything.
Worry never prevents anything.
Worry never heals anything.
Worry serves only one purpose... it makes matters worse."
- Bob Proctor

"The task of worrying is to come up with positive solutions for life's perils by anticipating dangers before they arise.
If we are preoccupied by worries, we have that must less attention to expend on figuring out the answers.
Our worries become self-fulfilling prophecies, propelling us toward the very disaster they predict."
- Daniel Goleman

Give away your Smiles =)


Smiling is infectious, You catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin,
When he smiled I realized,
I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile, then realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine,
Could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin, Don't leave it undetected. Let's start an epidemic quick, And get the world infected.

Don't you have a similar experience before?
Where you saw a stranger having a happy smile on her face and
before you knew it, you were grinning for no apparent reason too.
Then someone saw your grin, and he smiled too.

You probably felt a little silly for smiling without any reason at first,
but when your smile brought a smile to someone's face,
you knew that it costs nothing to brighten up someone's day.

May you freely give away your beautiful, happy smiles!

Quotes on Smiles

Baby Pilot by Kim Anderson

"There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all."
- Anonymous

"A smile is a curve that sets everything straight."
- Phyllis Diller

"A smile is an inexpensive way to change your looks."
- Charles Gordy

"The shortest distance between two people is a smile."
- Anonymous

"A smile costs nothing but gives much.
It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give.
It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and
none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it.
Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen,
for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give."
