Be open to change


You are under no obligation to be the same person you were 5 minutes ago

Alan Watts

Developing character


Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.

Helen Keller


Passion and ambition

Great ambition is the passion of a great character.



You are responsible

Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.

Les Brown


Manage your expectations

You ought to expect better of people. It encourages you to be a better person yourself.

Jeph Jacques


Accept yourself

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.

Thich Nhat Hanh


Choose your company

The key is to keep company only with people who uplift you, whose presence calls forth your best.
