You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
You must learn to be still in the midst of activity and to be vibrantly alive in repose.
You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul’s own doing.
If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.
If you judge people, you have no time to love them.
I’m a survivor – a living example of what people can go through and survive.
For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.
– Oprah Winfrey
