Most people would succeed in small things
if they were not troubled with great ambitions.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Never let go of loyalty and faithfulness.
Tie them around your neck;
write them on your heart.
So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.
Proverbs 3:3-4

The nobler sort of man emphasizes the good qualities in others,
And does not accentuate the bad.
The inferior does the reverse.           
- Confucius (551-479 BC)

Let another praise you, and not your own mouth;
a stranger, and not your own lips.

Fill your life with laughter,
but don't confuse fun or pleasure with happiness. 
Don't sacrifice a thousand tomorrows
for a few todays.
Unknown

It was faith that made Moses, when he had grown up,
refuse to be called the son of the king's daughter.
He preferred to suffer with God's people
rather than to enjoy sin for a little while.
He reckoned that to suffer scorn for the Messiah was worth far more
than all the treasures of Egypt,
for he kept his eyes on the future reward.
Hebrews 11:24-26

Greatness is not found in possessions, 
   power, position, or prestige.
It is discovered in goodness,

William Arthur Ward

He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you but
to do justice, and
to love kindness, and
to walk humbly with your God?
Micah 6:8

"It is too late to be on our guard
 when we are in the midst of evils."
                                   - Seneca

Try your best to please God and to be like Him.
Be faithful, loving, dependable, and gentle.
