Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime
And departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sands of time.

Henry Adams

A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.

Heather Hanbury

There’s no point in failing and then dealing with it by pretending it didn’t happen, or blaming someone else. That would be a wasted opportunity to learn more about yourself and perhaps to identify gaps in your skills, experiences or qualifications. Once you’ve identified the learning you can then take action to make a difference.

Thomas Edison

Genius is 1% inspiration, 99% perspiration.

Henry David Thoreau

There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.

Dr. Seuss (The Lorax)

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.

Mother Teresa

Do not wait for leaders; do it alone, person to person.

Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

Mother Teresa

If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.

Catherine of Sienna

If you are what you should be, you will set the whole world ablaze!

Theodore Roosevelt

The credit belongs to those who are actually in the arena, who strive valiantly; who know the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spend themselves in a worthy cause; who at best know the triumph of high achievement; and who, at worst, if they fail, fail while daring greatly, so that their place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.

Oscar Wilde

Our ambition should be to rule ourselves, the true kingdom for each one of us; and true progress is to know more, and be more, and to do more.

Winston S. Churchill

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Henri Nouwen

Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.

Mother Teresa

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

John Wooden

It’s the little details that are vital. Little things make big things happen.

John F. Kennedy

One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.

W. Clement Stone

There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude.

Jane Goodall

Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play. Every individual makes a difference.
