One of my favorites is from Stephen King, in "Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption."
"Get busy livin,' or get busy dyin."
there on the flat stone,on which we so often have sat
to weep and pray ,we look down
and see it covered with the fossil footprints of great birds
and the beautiful skeleton of a fish,we have so often tried
to picture in our mind what the fossilized remains of creatures
must be like,and all the time we sat on them,
we have been so blinded by thinking and feeling that we have
never seen the world
"God promised a safe landing, not a calm passage".
OK... this may not be too positive, but great for days when you feel really, really bad.
"Go ahead, make my day ! " = )
ok one more
seize the day : make your lives extraordinary :
That's a good one ! Here's another I found online :
"I think these difficult times have helped me to understand better than before how infinitely rich and beautiful life is in every way and that so many things that one goes around worrying about are of no importance whatsoever."
yeah i like that one ok 2 for the price of 1
what lies behind us
and what lies before us
are tiny matters compared
to what lies within us
tell a person there are 300 billion stars in the universe
and they'll believe you.tell them a bench has wet paint
on it and they'll have to touch it to be sure ....
how true is that lol
Follow your heart wherever it takes you and be happy. Life is brief and very fragile and only loaned to us for awhile. Wake up every morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen. (unkown)
