I never have found the perfect quote. At best I have been able to find a string of quotations which merely circle the ineffable idea I seek to express.
~Caldwell O'Keefe

Silence is a text easy to misread.
~A. A. Attanasio

The first step to getting the things you want out of life is this: Decide what you want.
~Ben Stein

Our lives improve only when we take chances - and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves.
~Walter Anderson

Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.
~Eddie Rickenbacker (1890 - 1973)

If you can solve your problem, then what is the need of worrying? If you cannot solve it, then what is the use of worrying?

Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.
~Christina Baldwin

Risk! Risk anything! Care no more for the opinions of others, for those voices. Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
~Katherine Mansfield

In the words of the ancients, one should make his decisions within the space of seven breaths. Lord Takanobu said, "If discrimination is long, it will spoil. " Lord Naoshige said, "When matters are done leisurely, seven out of ten will turn out badly. A warrior is a person who does things quickly.''
When your mind is going hither and thither, discrimination will never be brought to a conclusion. With an intense, fresh and undelaying spirit, one will make his judgments within the space of seven breaths. It is a matter of being determined and having the spirit to break right through to the other side.

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
~Paulo Coelho quote

Every minute you are thinking of evil, you might have been thinking of good instead. Refuse to pander to a morbid interest in your own misdeeds. Pick yourself up, be sorry, shake yourself, and go on again.
~Evelyn Underhill

Misfortune shows those who are not really friends.

It’s the friends you can call up at four a.m. that matter.
~Marlene Dietrich

A mind troubled by doubt cannot focus on the course to victory.
~Arthur Golden

Assert your right to make a few mistakes. If people can't accept your imperfections, that's their fault.
~Dr. David M. Burns

Sometimes it seems like God is difficult to find and impossibly far away. We get so caught up in our small daily duties and irritations that they become the only things that we can focus on. What we forget is that God's love and beauty are all around us, every day, if only we would take the time to look up and see them.

In the absence of clearly-defined goals, we become strangely loyal to performing daily trivia until ultimately we become enslaved by it.
~Robert Heinlein

EVERY path may lead you to God, even the weird ones. Most of us are on a journey. We’re looking for something, though we’re not always sure what that is. The way is foggy much of the time. I suggest you slow down and follow some of the side roads that appear suddenly in the mist.
~Real Live Preacher

There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
~Josh Billings (1818 - 1885)

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
~Benjamin Franklin

Live well. It is the greatest revenge.
~The Talmud

“Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's experience.”
~Victoria Holt

The world moves. The world shifts. I never forget and I never regret.
All things have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

All things have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

All things have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

I don't do regrets. I live each moment and each choice and no matter where it leads me. I live with them all no matter what they bring me. Some things are so beautiful you risk more then you should but to regret those choices is to lessen that ethereal beauty. All things have a beginning, a middle, and an end. The beginning is wondrous, the middle sublime, and the ends are always breath taking. All things have a beginning, a middle and an end. If you say it enough you don't feel how deep the pain goes. If you say it enough you can drive home through tears. If you say it enough you remember that you've had this happen before and you are strong and broken but still going onwards. Uf you say it enough you can breath through the shaking. If you say it enough you change nothing. All things have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

All things have a beginning, a middle, and an end.

All things have a beginning, a middle, and... an end.
