“That’s the Real Trouble With the World, Too Many People Grow Up”



“Each person comes into this world with a specific destiny—he has something to fulfill, some message has to be delivered, some work has to be completed.  You are not here accidentally— you are here meaningfully.  There is a purpose behind you.  The whole intends to do something through you.”   (Osho)




“Nothing happens unless first we dream.”   (Carl Sandburg)




“Every great dream begins with a dreamer.  Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”   (Harriet Tubman)




“Dreams are illustrations, from the book your soul is writing about you.”   (Marsha Norman)




“The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world.  There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor.  But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents.  Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.  Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around.  It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt.”   (Leo Buscaglia)




When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”   (Lao Tzu)




“Too many people grow up.

That’s the real trouble with the world, too many people grow up.  They forget.”   (Walt Disney)
