Sue Atchley Ebaugh

How wonderful it is that nobody needs to wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.

Anne Frank

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Aesop

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

Aesop

There is one spectacle grander than the sea; that is the sky. And there is one spectacle grander than the heavens; that is the interior of the psyche.

Victor Hugo in Les Misérables

If we examine every stage of our lives, we find that from our first breath to our last we are under the constraint of circumstances. And yet we still possess the greatest of all freedoms, the power of developing our innermost selves in harmony with the moral order of the Universe, and so winning peace at heart whatever obstacles we meet.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
