For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.

I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.

Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!

I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.

I’ve been lucky. Opportunities don’t often come along. So, when they do, you have to grab them.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, it’s at the end of your arm. As you get older, remember you have another hand: the first is to help yourself, the second is to help others.

I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.

“People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Your heart just breaks, that’s all. But you can’t judge or point fingers. You just have to be lucky enough to find someone who appreciates you.

It is too much to hope that I shall keep up my success. I don’t ask for that. All I shall do is my best – and hope.

“Not to live for the day, that would be materialistic — but to treasure the day. I realize that most of us live on the skin — on the surface — without appreciating just how wonderful it is simply to be alive at all.

When you have found it, you should stick to it.

I don’t take my life seriously, but I do take what I do – in my life – seriously –

A quality education has the power to transform societies in a single generation, provide children with the protection they need from the hazards of poverty, labor exploitation, and disease, and given them the knowledge, skills, and confidence to reach their full potential.

I have learned how to live…how to be in the world and of the world, and not just to stand aside and watch.

Good things aren’t supposed to just fall into your lap. God is very generous, but He expects you to do your part first.

Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.

My greatest ambition is to have a career without becoming a career woman.

To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.

True friends are families which you can select.

We all want to be loved, don’t we? Everyone looks for a way of finding love. It’s a constant search for affection in every walk of life.

A woman can be beautiful as well as intellectual.
