“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” ~ Buddha

We refuse to be bystanders, even if we do not know exactly where our actions will lead.” – Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks
“We can believe what we choose. We are answerable for what we choose to believe.” ~ John Henry Newman
“It always came back to my original belief of having passion. You can’t just generate passion; you’ve really got to have it from the beginning. You need to believe in yourself and in your projects.

Success is only going to happen if you are out there really working to make it happen.” ~ Eric Meola

Regardless of what has happened to you in your life, regardless of how young or how old you think you might be, the moment you begin to think properly, there’s something that is within you, there’s power within you, that’s greater than the world. It will begin to emerge. It will take over your life. It will feed you. It will clothe you. It will guide you, protect you, direct you, sustain your very existence, if you let it. Now, that is what I know for sure.” ~ Michael Beckwith
“If you believe in your heart that you are right, then you must fight with all your might to do it your way. Only dead fish swim with the stream all the time.” ~ Linda Ellerbee
