Vitality shows in not only the ability to persist
but the ability to start over.

F. Scott Fitzgerald



Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.
It's what the sunflowers do.

Helen Keller



Riding a bicycle is about getting back to basics.
It's good for the waist line and it's good for the wallet,
is what I'm saying.

Phil Keoghan



When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me
that happiness is a key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me
what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down 'happy'.
They told me I didn't understand the assignment,
and I told them they didn't understand life.

John Lennon



Life is a beautiful magnificent thing, even to a jellyfish.

Charlie Chaplin


Lemon Flower

When life gives you lemons, you don't make lemonade.
You use the seeds to plant a whole orchard - an entire franchise!
Or you could just stay on the Destiny Bus 
and drink lemonade someone else has made, from a can.

Anthon St. Maarten



That buzzing-noise means something.
If there's a buzzing noise,
somebody's making a buzzing noise,
and the only reason for making a buzzing noise that I know of 
 is because you're a bee....
And the only reason for being a bee that I know of
is making honey.....
And the only reason for making honey 
is so as I can eat it.

Winnie the Pooh


The Rose

The Rose is without an explanation;
She blooms, because She blooms.

Angelus Silesius


He knows

He knows when you're happy
He knows when you're comfortable
He knows when you're confident
And he always knows when you have carrots.


Tell me

Tell me I'm clever, Tell me I'm kind, 
Tell me I'm talented, Tell me I'm cute, 
Tell me I'm sensitive, graceful and wise,
Tell me I'm perfect -- But tell me the truth.

Shel Silverstein



The clover blossoms kiss her feet,
She is so sweet, she is so sweet.
While I, who may not kiss her hand,
Bless all the wild flowers in the land.

Oscar Leighton


Water Fountain

Unlike a fountain that circulates the same water in an enclosed,
perpetually recycling system,
a human being circulates thoughts in an unlimited reservoir of self. 
 Don't limit yourself to being a mere fountain
when you contain an ocean.

Vera Nazarian
