“Create an Original Thought to Begin Each Day”

“You always do what you want to do.  This is true with every act.  You may say that you had to do something, or that you were forced to but actually, whatever you do, you do by choice.

Only you have the power to choose for yourself.”    (W. Clement Stone)




“Each day we wake in the morning with a thought in our minds.  This thought, whatever it may be, sets the tone for the rest of the day.  This is not always a good thing as we may wake up in a rush for work or school, with a hangover, feeling depressed or generally in a state of confusion

Therefore, it is a good idea to learn how to create an original thought to begin each day, and to make the day a perfect expression of your original thought.”    (The Tibetan Art of Positive Thinking)




“Be great in little things.”    (St. Francis Xavier)




“Be great in little things, and you will be given opportunity to do big things.” (Richard Shivers)




“When we accept small wonders, we qualify ourselves to imagine great wonders.” (Tom Robbins)




“Each child can always teach an adult three things:  to be happy for no reason, to always be busy with something, and to know how to demand with all his might that which he desires.”    (Paulo Coelho, The Fifth Mountain)
