I have bought the book "The Complete Pocket Positives" which is compiled by Maggie Pinkney and published by The Five Mile Press. It's a very good anthology of quotes from various great worldwide known people. Here are some of the best quotes in this book. Enjoy! :)
Live all you can: it's a mistake not to. It doesn't matter what you do in particular, so long as you have had your life. If you haven't had that, what have you had?
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Life the life you've imagined.
Henry David Thoreau
I have learned that a good friend is the purest of all God's gifts, for it is a love that has no exchange or payment.
Friendship consist in forgetting what one gives, and remembering what one receives.
Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself and know that everything in this life has a purpose.
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow them.
Louisa May Alcott
When goals go, meaning goes. When meaning goes, purpose goes. When purpose goes, life dead on our hands.
No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the horizon of the spirit.
The mind is its own place, and in itself Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.
Make the most of the best and the least of the worst.
Robert Louis Stevenson
