“The strongest actions for a woman is to love herself, be herself and shine amongst those who never believed she could.”  (This has been my life's mantra.)

And Madonna's quote has always resonated with me even if Madonna, herself, did not:

“I’m tough, ambitious and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, Okay.”   (Okay, okay I always say.)

A great man who was once a 2nd dad to me lived by

"Have fun, live life to the extreme, and smile!"

Simple and cliche, but has helped bring me through some tough years, for sure. :)

Wow....so many...

Hard to top "Whom the Son sets free is free indeed."

Or "No pain, no gain."

Or "Lose yourself to gain life,' and the whole spectrum of 'lay your life down for another," or "..for such a time as this I have been prepared."

Today, when I consider my behavior, whenI observe the cruelty we inflict and impose on others for 'righteous' reasons, a compassion stirs that reminds me of the depth of but two words, "Jesus wept."

This is not unrelated to Carol's contribution of choosing to know the other person.

Interesting question Richie.  Here is a philosophy that has resonated with me and helped me in life:
The truth is people are the way they are for a reason.  If we would take the time to know their stories, we would be much more forgiving.

Richie,

So many quotes, so many words, I could write a book on that alone. And I agree with Nina Hollander choices, they ring true to me.  A favorite of mine comes from Sister Carita, "Don't sweat the small stuff, it is all small stuff!"
