To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.

To pass over the mistakes of others.

To accept insults and injuries.

To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.

To be kind and gentle even under provocation.

Never to stand on one's dignity.

To choose always the hardest."

28- "Be happy in the moment, that's enough. Each moment is all we need, not more."

 29- "It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us.

Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start."

31- "What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight; build it anyway."

33- "Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier."

36- "Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment."

37- "Each of us is merely a small instrument; all of us, after accomplishing our mission, will disappear." 

38- "Some people come in our life as blessings. Some come in your life as lessons."

39- "He who is faultless does not care for the opinion of others."

40- "Keep the corners of your mouth turned up. Speak in a low, persuasive tone. Listen; be teachable. Laugh at good stories and learn to tell them...For as long as you are green, you can grow."

41- "If we want a love message to be heard, it has got to be sent out. To keep a lamp burning, we have to keep putting oil in it."

42- "There's nothing more calming in difficult moments that knowing there's someone fighting with you."

43- "One truly must have suffered oneself to help others."
