Good Inspirational Quotes

Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them: work, family, health, friends, and spirit, and you're keeping all of them in the air.

You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back.

But the other four balls -- family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.


Don't undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don't set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart. Cling tothem as you would your life, for without them, life is meaningless.

Don't let life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL thedays of your life.

Don't give up when you still have something to give. Nothing isreally over until the moment you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is thisfragile thread that binds us together.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that welearn to be brave.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive love is to give; the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you are going.

Don't forget that a person's greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated.

Don't use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved.

Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.

Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, and Today is a gift: that's why we call it Present

" Time is too slow for those who wait,
Too swift for those who fear,
Too long for those who grief,
Too short for those who rejoice,
But for those who love
- Time is Eternity. "

Thanks for the reminder. I sometimes feel my days are whirling past me, and there's no way I can make it slow down to make it count.
